Over 60s Enjoy Unparalleled Luxury at Reimagined North Shore Mansion and Retirement Village

Gordon Quarter residents experience a new age of retirement living and residential care at the prestigious North Shore mansion and luxury village.

Burnham Thorpe – the iconic heritage-listed mansion on Sydney’s north shore – has been completely transformed after a meticulous restoration, becoming several luxury homes for seniors.  

The Mediterranean-style property forms part of Gordon Quarter, the new name for Lady Gowrie Village, alongside 40 retirement living units and the new 107-room Roden Cutler Lodge residential aged care home. Team Taylor worked closely with Anglicare and Allen Jack+Cottier Architects to bring the impressive development to life, as well as beautifully landscaped gardens and terraces, staff facilities and associated carparking.

Respecting the history and heritage of the existing Burnham Thorpe building was a significant component of this project, with many of the original architectural features retained including  
a grand staircase connecting the home’s three levels, a terrace, and a pool. The village also features environmentally sustainable design elements including natural light and ventilation, energy- and water-wise fittings, rooftop solar power, and rainwater harvesting. 

Peter Kesby, Gordon Quarter Village Manager, said

After a six-year redevelopment to create a dream home destination on the North Shore for over sixties, Anglicare is delighted to unveil this unique village, and welcome residents to Gordon Quarter. This has been one of our most ambitious redevelopments yet, and we’re thrilled with the results. We think it really challenges the perception of retirement living,

With local cafes, retail stores and Gordon railway station all within an easy stroll of the new development, we have no doubt that Gordon Quarter will be a wonderful place for residents to live.
