Northerly facing and embraced by shimmering water views with a Sydney Harbour Bridge centre-piece, ‘Brookfield’ is a large freestanding waterfront home complete with a private boatshed, slipway and large sunny block (approx 614sqm) right on Sydney’s idyllic Inner Harbour. Tightly held by one family for over 68 years, the existing 2-storey residence offers incomparable charm and character… almost untouched since built circa 1898. A significant landmark from the water yet virtually hidden from the picturesque cul de sac setting, this unique unspoiled treasure commands sweeping views… magical both day and night. Showcasing the iconic Bridge, NYE fireworks, Walsh Bay, Barangaroo and Sydney CBD, this waterfront blank canvas offers extraordinary potential (subject to approvals), with expired DA approved plans for a large deck with a studio apartment/granny flat below (like next door).
Currently offering a flexible layout with wraparound balconies, 4 spacious bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, neat kitchen (modern gas stove, vintage stainless steel benchtops, walk-in pantry), breakfast/family room and separate large formal living room with adjoining large formal dining room. Featuring 3 marble fireplaces, soaring 3.5m high ceilings, carpeted wide timber floorboards, impressive original joinery, stained glass, french doors, internal laundry, large attic space, cellar storage, secluded courtyards, auto double garage and low-maintenance stepped private gardens meandering down to the boatshed with slipway, separate boat-ramp and huge level sundrenched Northerly private garden fronting the gently lapping harbour.
Enjoying privacy, tranquility and a prized position on the most northern point of the Balmain East historic village peninsula, Brookfield is enviably located just minutes to the CBD by water-taxi, or a short walk to Darling Street Ferry Wharf, village shops, restaurants, business services, prime schools and parklands.
