I wish I lived in Sydney and this home was open to the public, because the styling of the home is just flawless…
No detail is overlooked in this home, the flooring, the painting, the furniture, the lighting, it’s all immaculate.
I can’t tell you how many lovely kitchens I come across in the $5M+ homes I see, but most are not “stunning”, this one however, is.
In fact, words fail me on this one!
Unfortunately the home did not list many pictures, because I’d love a peek at all the rooms, I noted from the floorplan below that all bedrooms had their own ensuite, the master had a huge ensuite and a WIR larger than normal bedrooms. If this home isn’t a designer custom home, then I don’t know what is anymore!
not too shabby for a historic property!!!
Lovingly restored historic landmark residence.
Unquestionably one of Lavender Bay’s most distinguished landmarks, this breathtaking eight bedroom Gothic Revival sandstone mansion has been lovingly restored and luxuriously modernised to the most meticulous standards. Proudly elevated on approximately 1183sqm parcel of land opposite harbourside Clark Park, it enjoys a commanding uninterrupted view across the harbour to the Bridge, city skyline and Walsh Bay.
