Bidura, the 1860 Edmund Blacket Glebe building, has been listed for sale by the NSW government.

Designing along conventional Victorian Regency lines, it was Blacket's home while he was designing the University of Sydney’s Great Hall. 

In recent years it has been occupied by staff of the Family and Community Services and the Department of Justice.

The NSW government is selling off the 5,556 square metre property at 357 Glebe Point Road which was previously used as a juvenile court until 2000.

It ceased functioning as a children’s home in 1977.

It has been owned by the NSW government since the 1920s.

With three street frontages and views over Blackwattle Bay and the city skyline, the NSW Minister for Finance and Services Dominic Perrottet said the Glebe Point property was expected to generate significant developer interest for a residential project.
