Extraordinary in scale and grandeur, this landmark 1860's era Paddington residence occupies an elevated 1634m2 north-facing block, enjoying sweeping views of the CBD and surrounding suburbs.
This iconic home is immediately impressive and has the feel of a grand, country estate; yet it occupies a coveted address that is just 3km from the city. This property offers the chance to enjoy an idyllic and rare lifestyle.
On the entry level of the home you will find stately reception and entertaining rooms with soaring and intricately detailed pressed metal ceilings. There is a sophisticated formal lounge and dining currently used as a music room, with French doors opening to a sunroom. This exquisite space can accommodate the largest of gatherings and boasts a beautiful fireplace - one of five throughout the property.
There is also a library on this level and a large drawing room, which has been converted into self-contained accommodation, complete with its own entry, kitchenette and bathroom. This is perfect for guests or a nanny.
The kitchen at the rear of the home enjoys spectacular 270 degree views and an abundance of natural light. There is a huge meals area, again with an open fireplace and an adjoining casual sitting room.
A grand timber staircase leads to the upper level, where you will find four very generously sized bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. Deep verandahs capture breezes and offer a peaceful spot to relax and drink in the impressive views.
The list of features is long and extensive. There is additional accommodation and a gym at the rear of the property, opening onto a single size tennis court. There is air-conditioning throughout, undercover parking and copious amounts of storage.
The location is superb - a quiet, elevated location, a short stroll to Rosalie Village and Paddington shops and lifestyle.
Only upon inspection can you appreciate the incredible opportunity presented by this extraordinary property.
