Elizabeth Bay House was built by English builder and architect John Verge, who had a land grant in now Dungog Shire near Wallarobba. He was also commissioned by the Mackay family to build Aberglasslyn near Maitland, which is a very similar design to Elizabeth Bay House with the absence of the grand spiral staircase. There is also a Verge St in the town of Dungog.
