Check out these Top 5 picks:
‘Stannix Park’ — 103 Stannix Park Lane, Wilberforce
(5 Bed, 4 Bath, 4 Car)
An hour from Sydney at the gateway to the Hawkesbury region, this 1839 French Colonial residence is a private and historic oasis on 49 acres.
In a park-like setting, the heritage main building was restored by Clive Lucas Stapleton & Partners (Kirribilli House, Her Majesty’s Theatre).
You’ll find it on a highpoint at the end of the road, behind secure electric gates.
It still features the original sandstone that French stonemasons cut from the property in 1839.
Its potential as a wedding venue, B&B or food destination (STCA) is immediately obvious.
1&2/88 Boomerang Drive, Boomerang Beach
(Both homes: 4 Bed, 3.5 Bath, 2 Car)
Up the coast to the north, this pair of modern beach houses provides a front-row seat to surfing and whale watching, just three hours from Sydney’s CBD.Architects Collins and Turner designed the homes around a central courtyard, divided by an elevated 15m lap pool and low screen wall.
Designed to age gracefully, self-weathering materials features throughout the four levels in a combination of off-form concrete, tallow wood and zinc.
3/1a Wylde Street, Potts Point
(3 Bed, 2.5 Bath, 2 Car)
Back on the CBD fringe, this apartment is set in an old ballroom. In terms of grandeur, nothing else will come close to this inner-Sydney apartment.
The magnificent interiors of this Victorian Italianate landmark have been beautifully restored as one of three State Heritage registered apartments.
On a premium north-facing tip of Potts Point, it has breathtaking views of the water and Sydney Harbour landmarks.
432 Riley Street, Surry Hills
(4 Bed, 2 Bath)
Nearby in Surry Hills, this terrace house appears to be quintessential city-fringe living, but it has a few surprises.
When every terrace renovation starts to exude the same white-on-white personality, this home has enough colour for a welcome change. Its own eccentricity suits the hip street and surrounding area.
Think purple carpets and eclectic bathroom finishes. The alfresco courtyard has an enormous outdoor spa and a wide footprint adds plenty more appeal for entertainers.
1202/3 Sterling Circuit, Camperdown
(3 Bed, 3 Bath, 3 Car)
Across town in the Inner West, this apartment is another contender for incomparable views. Its entertainer’s deck would rival Sydney’s best and has vivid displays of the city skyline.
The space oozes an ambitious sensation that comes from the merging of two apartments.
In some apartments, that can often feel disjointed. But it’s been done to perfection here.
If these homes don’t suit your style, our new listings could have the answer to your Easter home hunt. That perfect match could be waiting here.
