Lavender Bay is the tiny, neighbourhood suburb that never fails to fill you with wonder.
Tucked away amongst three of Sydney’s best locations, Milsons Point, Kirribilli and North Sydney, the harbourside enclave is an absolute delight, with foreshore parks, incredible views and some of the lower north shore’s best real estate.
1/19 Lavender St was built in 1859.
Case in point is this historic residence at 1/19 Lavender St, a five-bedroom sandstone terrace that dates back to 1859.
Heritage listed and immaculately restored, the stunning home is footsteps from the Harbour and boasts breath taking views.
Balconies, terraces, and a walled garden exude enchanting lifestyle appeal.
Marketed by Tim Foote from Belle Property in Mosman, the residence has multiple living and entertaining spaces, with a separate self-contained studio.
“It’s a significant home from an historical perspective,” Mr Foote says, “from the stone and gas kitchen to period tile and terracotta floors.”
“Lavender St is a prime location, and this home is a large family property to suit a discerning, prestige buyer.
“It’s also positioned in one of Sydney’s best and most convenient areas, with the city literally on your doorstep.”
The home features sweeping views over Sydney Harbour.
There are multiple living and entertainment spaces throughout the property.
The Georgian home, built in 1859 by John Carr, features high ceilings, hardwood floors and dressed sandstone feature walls, loft bedrooms, a rumpus room, a cellar and generous storage.
“And everywhere you look, there is the view of the full span of the Sydney Harbour Bridge,” Mr Foote says.
1/19 Lavender St has a formal lounge and dining rooms with period tile and iron fireplaces.
There are four levels of accommodation, a garden loggia, a double carport and the terrace is a short walk to the ferry, village shops and an array of eateries.
The five bathrooms are modern, Mr Foote says, with a huge sunroom attached to the Master, plus an ensuite and private terrace.
The expansive stone and gas kitchen opens to outdoors and living areas.
