Sold Prior To Auction

A Harbourside Treasure In Watsons Bay With Idyllic Northerly Views Over Robertson Park.

This three-storey harbourside home in Watsons Bay has been lovingly revived to strike a perfect chord between classic elegance and contemporary comfort. Forming part of a landmark row of Federation houses, the 6.5m-fronted property has a sunny north-to-rear aspect with stunning views of the harbour and national parkland from the upper level.

Grandly scaled interiors retain their significant architectural charm, with two levels opening out to decks where you can dine al fresco or sit and enjoy the refreshing sea breezes. A spacious layout features a choice of living rooms plus a home office, with three of the four large bedrooms upstairs. The lower level functions as a self-contained apartment with its own entry, making it ideal as accommodation for guests, teens, grandparents or as an income earner. It opens out to a porch and a sunny landscaped garden framed by lush greenery.

Family homes in Watsons Bay are rare on the market and this is one of the best spots in this exclusive but friendly village. Gibsons Beach, Camp Cove and the Watsons Bay baths are all a stroll away, as are both children and adult sailing clubs.

Choose from a range of cafes, dine alfresco at iconic Doyles, have a picnic or fish and chips in Robertson Park, or enjoy a cocktail and spectacular city views at the Beach Club. Sydney's CBD is only a ferry ride away, with peak-hour services for those who work in the city.
