The Landers family have sold their heritage-listed 1881 Rozelle home, the former Beach Hotel.

Some $3.2 million was being sought by Tristan Landers, principal at management consultancy IN21, and her husband, David Landers, general manager for East Asian Growth Markets at the Australian Trade Commission who paid $1.7 million in 2011.

Following its restorative conversion from offices into a Mansfield Street family home, it has six bedrooms, multiple living areas including a library/home office and a courtyard off Smith Street.

There's 40 sqm balcony decking too.

Not too much remains from its pub days, excepting the etched glass front door panels. 

The hotel was first known as the Why Not, then in 1887 it became the Beach Hotel, perhaps historians suggest because of the beach then in front of it in White Bay, but plausibly in honour of Australian sculling champion Bill Beach, who became world champion in 1886.

The favoured haunt of sawmill workers, it went into decline before finally closing in 1928.
