An iconic old Harbour-Side Residence

'The Retreat' is a sandstone Georgian residence (c1850) and one of Glebe's iconic harbour-side residences. On a gentle block, enjoys 803sqm of waterfront with that historic never-to-be-repeated allure.

Renovation on the building required some paint to be stripped from the old Sandstone Blocks. A delicate operation was required not damage the delicate brittal sandstone.

Again and again our ever reliable Heritage No1 was the choice of paint stripper that mastered the job.

We used both the JOS and BlueVac Systems to finish of the final touches.
