3. Cadman's Cottage Cadman's Cottage was built in 1816 and was originally known as Coxswain's barracks. It is Sydney's oldest surviving house. The stone building was built for the Coxswain and crew, the Coxswain being the person in charge or command of the boats. The Coxswain ran the fleet of official government boats that were crewed by convicts. Built on the foreshore of Sydney Harbour (near The Rocks) the barracks was cut into a natural rock shelf and had a small sandy beach in the front. Today, however the cottage is well set back from the water's edge due to land reclamations. The plain Georgian design was copied from English pattern books. +61 2 9247 5033
