This is a residence that has history. Built circa 1906 “Wangalla” offers an elegant sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of City life. From the stunning tessellated tile verandas to the soaring ceilings and dramatic arched windows, if this gracious beauty could talk, what wonderful tales she could tell.
Sitting on the veranda overlooking the large expansive lawns, you can almost hear the sound of giggling laughter from days gone by and the pitter patter of tiny feet as generations of children have grown up inside her walls.
With level access from the street, the home offers 4 large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and double secure parking. Three bedrooms are on the entry level along with the generous sized main bathroom and the 4th bedroom is on the lower level which is ideally located for teenagers or guests and with French doors leading to the patio and north- facing garden – just perfect to lay in bed and listen to the dawn chorus emanating from the expansive grounds.
The gracious formal living room with ornate cornices and archways is of enviable proportions and features a stunning marble fireplace.
At the rear of the home is the open plan dining/family and kitchen area which flows out through French doors to the fully restored massive veranda, complete with newly laid exquisitely- beautiful tessellated tiles and bullnose roof. Ideal for entertaining and spacious enough for the biggest gathering.
The granite kitchen complete with breakfast bar offers spacious cupboards, double sink and gas cooking.
The fully tiled main bathroom on the entry level is very generous in size and has been renovated to include a claw bath and large frameless shower.
The large second bathroom/laundry is located on the lower level and is perfectly placed should you wish to entertain on the lower veranda.
Extensive storage is offered within the stunning sandstone foundations and ample room to build a superbly stylish wine cellar and offering the ultimate wow-factor by illuminating the sandstone.
The attic level of the home is where great value can be added. It is currently accessed by a fixed staircase. Here is the perfect opportunity to easily create a parents retreat. With a little architectural prowess the size would freely allow the construction of a massive master bedroom with en suite and walk-in robes.
Magnificent traditional Federation features include marble mantelpieces and hearths, ceiling roses, stunning decorative arches, high skirting boards and picture rails, stained glass windows, original door furniture and of course polished floorboards. Additional items include reverse cycle air conditioning, alarm and wine cellar.
The expansive north facing level garden at the rear is of course a huge plus. With it’s high hedging, extensive lawns and beautiful trees it offers a sanctuary of privacy and quietness.
Of course there is ample room for a pool (STCA) and play equipment – a paradise for kids and pets!
Absolutely convenient location allowing you to walk to the ferry, City buses, local Avenue Road shops, parks and playgrounds. Plus of course within easy walking distance to Mosman Village, cafes and restaurants and Balmoral Beach.
Lovely as is or great opportunity to add value over time – this grand Federation home will charm the socks off you.
