Extraordinary Parnell Landmark
At the very top of St Georges Bay Rd, with the village on your doorstep, this extraordinary leasehold, landmark property now zoned Business must be the Parnell premier place to live and work. The much admired grand, brick residence built in the 1910's on a full 930 m2 level section is an architectural treasure, and has the tranquil elegance of a past golden era. Full of character and charm, a welcoming main entrance, generous formal and informal living areas and many original features of its time. On two levels, there are splendid sea views from the top floor. You can choose your place and space from the 5 available bedrooms, two of them on the ground floor with their own bathroom and separate entrance, a perfect space for visitors and guests. The wonderfully established grounds, the outdoor living with a concrete pool and pool house at the back, all blissfully private and sunny, are graced with mature trees, a pergola and a fountain. A garden path leads you to your own personal Gym located on the side of the house.
With the value firmly underpinned by the location and the new Business Town Centre Zone, your long-term investment in this incredible residence is assured whether you want to live or work or both!
