Grand London Style Residence With City and Harbour Views, A Rare Beauty With A Pool And Studio

Reminiscent of a classic Knightsbridge terrace, Dela-Kaba is the ultimate conversion of a grand old dame of heritage architecture into a luxurious contemporary family home. Built c1905, this landmark five-bedroom property enjoys a peaceful and private setting in the leafy heart of Woollahra opposite Centennial Park with spectacular northerly rear views over the city skyline and Harbour Bridge. A tasteful redesign has preserved the historic fabric of the home while introducing an inherent sense of style that retains its classic English design sentiment. Grand proportions, refined craftsmanship and a versatile layout with a rare generosity of space deliver an exceptional home for both family living and entertaining. Spread over four levels with double garaging via Bowden Street, the 8m approx. fronted home features a parent's wing, self-contained au pair suite or teen retreat and a landscaped north facing garden flanked by a 13m mosaic-tiled pool.
