103 George St
The Rocks, NSW 2000

No 103 George Street is a fine three storey building in the Victorian Regency style. Its proportions are pleasing with a formal symmetry in line with that of the Victorian Regency architecture in Britain which was transported to Australia and adapted by the early European settlers. It was built in 1856 of stuccoed brick with articulated quoins and finely detailed stone architraves and cornices to first and second floors.

The window openings are larger than those provided in facades of similar contemporary buildings, eg 105 George Street. The use of decoratively moulded string courses with supporting scrolled brackets adds a touch of lightness and relief to the fa├žade. The distinctive embellished parapet top to the front of the building is a detail that has become relatively rare.
