Sited on a rare level 1230sqm block and comprising 2 separate lots with three street frontages, Currawilla is an immaculately presented single level home surrounded by private, sundrenched lawns and manicured gardens and loaded with opportunity galore.
There is of course the added bonus to demolish the existing home and build a single freestanding dwelling or 2 semi-detached dwellings on each lot subject to council approvals.
History of course is so relevant here. The home was converted in the 1950’s into a boarding house as a way of earning an income for a sole parent family. Later in 1961 the property was divided into 2 flats allowing 3 generations to reside in the home, and in 1988 was again transformed back into a family home.
The property now offers potential plus for a family to create their dream home on Balmoral slopes. Already capturing beautiful water glimpses through the Heads you would fully capitalise on the excellent views with the addition of a second storey, and with the copious amounts of level garden there is also the opportunity to add a large pool and additional garaging if required. A massive 290m2 of attic space is waiting for you to stamp your mark. (Subject to council approval)
Soaring ceilings and polished floorboards add a stately dimension to the impressive formal living and dining rooms, and the informal family and dining areas to the rear of the home open onto the generous lawns and gardens. With its highly sought after North-East aspect, the home and gardens are bathed in sunlight and being set on the high side of the street, enjoy the northerly breezes in the summertime.
The vestibule at the front entrance and the grand entry hall with its magnificent arches set the scene immediately and reflect the beauty of the era. Highly polished floorboards, soaring ceilings, picture rails, ceiling roses, leadlight windows, Cedar skirting boards, original Kauri pine doors and hardware are just some of the features on display here.
As you enter the home it is easy to imagine the generations of children growing up here, the sounds of laughter ringing throughout the home and the fond memories they will have treasured.
With generous proportions, the home offers 4/5 large bedrooms, complete with original fireplaces, high ceilings, picture rails, ceiling roses and pendant lights. The Master bedroom and Bedrooms 2 ( or formal dining) and 3 flow out to the spacious covered veranda which wraps around the house and is a significant feature of the home offering a beautiful north-east vista to Balmoral and beyond.
The huge formal lounge captures the water views and offers plenty of room for entertaining, with its highly polished floorboards and original tiled working fireplace. In fact there are 5 period fireplaces in the home. The home is currently styled with a large formal dining room but this could easily be converted into another bedroom especially with modern-day living.
At the rear of the home is a functional kitchen with a six burner gas cooktop, dishwasher and double sink. The laundry has an external access with an additional small bathroom attached. This is the part of the home which could be developed and fully modernised to take advantage of the northerly aspect and the copious land on which to extend if required.
The main bathroom has been recently updated complete with full bath with shower rose, separate glass shower cubicle, modern hand basin and Caesar stone vanity with plenty of floor and wall- mounted cupboards. There is a small additional bathroom with basin and toilet located at the rear of the home. The informal dining and lounge rooms and small playroom make family living easy.
The home of course offers abundant roof and under house/garage storage as well as an additional small storage area ideal for wine. There is ducted floor heating throughout the home and a number of Foxtel points.
The home offers expansive child and pet friendly gardens and lawns, securely fenced and plenty of room for a trampoline, basketball hoops, tree house and all the other essential playthings every family home needs.
There are two lock up garages with auto-entry conveniently accessed from Rawson Street at the rear of the property.
Superbly located of course for transport to the city, prestige schools, Balmoral Beach and Mosman village with its restaurants and shops.
To finish with the words of the current owner…. “ Alas, time has turned us into downsizers and it is time for us to move on from our family home but we hope another family will fall in love with Currawilla as our parents, ourselves , our children and their children have, and get to experience “her” generosity of spirit and eager to explore and interpret “her” potential with awe, imagination and excitement”
Enjoy the home as is or develop the 2 separate lots STCA - a great opportunity for the successful purchaser.
