Your opportunity to create a beautiful home in the Newcastle / Cooks Hill Precinct

From the moment you walk in the front door, this truly unique property has the feel of a New York city living space - but is it still possible to have cityscape views, 3 balconies and 3 levels of living space that, with a little vision and a lot of passion, could become one of the most coveted properties in the Newcastle / Cooks Hill precinct?

Turn this 4-bedroom masterpiece into a one of a kind, inner city sanctuary in one of the best streets in town – just foot steps from Darby street, City Hall, The New University building, The Conservatorium of Music and the Honeysuckle River precinct all in a surprisingly quiet street.

With an address spanning two of the most prestigious suburbs in town - Newcastle and Cooks Hill - this property really is in an enviable location. Just minutes walk to the city heart, to the Honeysuckle dining precinct and to a wide selection of ever evolving restaurants, wine, whisky and gin bars. You are a 10-minute stroll to the iconic Civic Theatre or 3 minutes to the Newcastle Art Gallery when you want to get your culture on.

This property offers endless options and opportunities if you have a little imagination and an eye for style. Take advantage of the existing design features including original cornices, exposed brick walls and high ceilings and develop the home to your exacting taste. The lower front balcony is huge and looks towards the harbor. You will LIVE out here – drinking in your view with a drink in hand. The upper balcony opens off the two upstairs bedrooms both offering a room with a view.

If you have a love of renovation or simply the ability to see potential then this property is for you. With land size of 176m2 and rare block width for the inner city this home provides 301sqm of living space across all of its levels with ample space to build, renovate or extend.
