The Manse mission
Our mission is to be the go-to, luxury cosmetic clinic and information site for beauty achievers. Genetics are irrelevant to us. We fight every flaw that is necessary, to create that high end, beautiful look, that takes our patients to the life of their dreams.
The Manse is a cosmetic clinic for those who must have the most experienced doctors to provide their non-surgical cosmetic medical care. It is the inevitable destination for true beauty achievers. We have 5 doctors on staff. It is only for the client who appreciates immaculate service. Every patient is important to us. We give our all. We want to make patients happy by improving their appearance. We love for patients to give up control of their appearance to us and we will take over and make them look the best that is possible with the current technology.
We love our workplace, it is an architecturally impressive, heritage building on Oxford St, in Paddington, an inner-city, eastern suburb of Sydney, 2km from the CBD. Paddington is known for its gentrified Victorian terrace houses, boutique fashion, bars and cafes.

Why “The Manse”?
First reason is that it is the name of the building that we are in.
A “Manse” is where the minister of a presbyterian church lived. Our building would have been where the minister met with his parishioners and “ministered” to them, ie helped them with their spiritual lives. Our treatment room 1 would have been the actual room in which he had these meetings.
We felt that we were continuing a tradition of helping people enhance their lives, even though in an aesthetic rather than a spiritual way, so we wanted to keep this name and this mission.
The History of the Building
The Manse, was the Manse for St John’s church, the first church established in Paddington. It was where the minister for the church lived. This Presbyterian church was built in 1859, and now houses Parlour X, Sydney’s mecca for the high end fashionista. The Manse was built in 1904 and is a significant piece of Australian architectural history, as a good example of a substantial Federation Arts & Crafts style dwelling. It is the work of well known architect of the period, Charles Slatyer.
The façade features face brickwork, with the upper level being finished with a coarse pebble dash. All windows have a bull nosed brick sill. The ground floor level windows have an arched head course whilst the first floor have roughcast heads. On the north elevation, there is a tower over the entrance with a casement window assembly to the porch, and Art Nouveau style masonry and timber belvedere at tower level. The roof is clad in slate with terracotta hips and ridges, with the front verandah continuous with the main roof. Significant internal fabric includes the timber joinery and fire places.
