Waterfront house on Greenwich Peninsula
If you’re riding the CBD ferries, the waterfront parcels of Greenwich Peninsula are as convenient as better-known Balmain or Hunters Hill.
A cruise to Circular Quay or Darling Harbour takes around 15 minutes. By car, Greenwich’s oft-forgotten paradise is an easy 8km city commute.
Unsurprisingly, it’s one of the more tightly-held patches of Sydney’s waterways.
On the northern side of Sydney Harbour, at the opening of the Lane Cove River, the district is known for its water views, pockets of bushland, village shops and cafes (including the well-known Fish Shop). And of course, the famous netted harbour pool.
Amid the landmark homes and significant residences, this waterfront package for sale with BresicWhitney is a standout.
The offering comprises a period home and self-contained studio on 1344sqm of land. An elegant character residence in a peaceful cul-de-sac, it’s set in an elevated position on the water.
With the river sparkling below, the residence opens to poolside escapes, terraced gardens, superb privacy, and some of the area’s best views. With separation between the main residence and the flat below, it has huge flexibility for the extended family, work-from-home professionals, or additional rental potential.
A family home with its classical details preserved, the pavilion-style living space has impressive indoor/outdoor flow, natural light, and cross ventilation. The covered verandah overlooks the pool and beyond, With leafy gardens cascading down to the water’s edge.
In its current configuration, the separate family areas are made up of the open dining space, a central living room, a TV room and a library. With 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, the well-maintained wet areas service each accommodation wing.
The level street access easily connects the double garage, and it’s a short walk to the ferry or buses, with easy access to St Leonards and Wollstonecraft train stations.
With harbourside bush tracks nearby and schools and parklands right here, it’s a hidden gem in one of Sydney’s most convenient and unique locations.
