Historic Cropley House restored to glory

WITH a story that spans generations as a boarding school and community hub, Baulkham Hills’ historic mansion Cropley House has finally reopened.

The venue was unveiled as one of the area’s most sought after weddings and corporate event venues, following a year of renovations to return the mansion to its former grandeur.
 
Situated on five acres of green parkland, the two-story mansion is framed by a wisteria-lined balcony overlooking a stunning rose garden and gazebo, perfect for intimate wedding ceremonies.
 
With two impressive rooms on the ground floor and four smaller separate rooms on the upper level, Cropley House is home to spaces suitable to all types of events, from large grand lunches to conferences with small breakout areas.
 
Entrenched in the Hills’ community since the 1920s, Cropley House maintains an old-world charm that celebrates its history as one of the Hills’ finest Georgian Revival mansions.
 
Upstairs, the dormitories where the boarders once slept under the matron’s watchful eye have been repurposed as stunning function rooms and breakout areas with sweeping views of the manicured gardens and lush grounds.
 
Two statement ballrooms, each with independent personalities and catering for up to 150 guests, have been given a ‘wow factor’ by award-winning interior designer Angela Neylon from Joanne Green.
 
Found on either side of a sweeping staircase, the rooms feature high ceilings, impressive chandeliers and bespoke colour schemes perfect for weddings. 
 
Commissioned by Christopher Drivas, managing director of leading events and hospitality firm Dockside Group, Cropley House re-opened with a bespoke functions menu from group executive chef Adam Birtles.
 
An onsite team of dedicated sales and event coordinating staff, bar and waitstaff, and a venue manager are on hand to make sure every event is a success.
 
“With these renovations, we’ve brought Cropley House into the 21st century, while still maintaining its rich heritage,” said Drivas.
 
“We’re proud of how versatile Cropley House is as a venue, with each room creating an atmosphere perfect for any event. Its classic and elegant design will delight anyone from a bride on her big day to a conference attendee.”
 
Bookings are now being accepted at Cropley House for weddings and ceremonies, corporate events and conferences, school events and formals, and all other events in between. Get in early and book your event to secure your preferred date.
