Grand estate is a unique treasure

Looking out over the rolling lawns, manicured gardens, sandstone terraces, pool and tennis court, you could be forgiven for thinking you were kicking back in the Southern Highlands.

You will need to pinch yourself, because you are actually less than 6km away from the Sydney CBD.

It’s a few minutes’ drive outside peak time, and even quicker any time of the day on the train. Conveniently, the Wollstonecraft Train Station is just metres from the front gate, as well as the harbour foreshore and Berry Island Reserve.

The 1884sqm property at No. 3 Milray Ave is recognised as one of the largest landholdings in Wollstonecraft, and one of only a handful of homes in the area with a private tennis court.

The three-level home sits on a prime corner block on two titles, and has been meticulously and respectfully restored.

The renovation has recaptured the estate’s original character, and is topped off by wonderful landscaping that adds to the secluded and private feel of the property.

Geoff Smith and Bernard Ryan, of Ray White Lower North Shore, are marketing the property via expressions of interest, with a guide of $10.5 million.

“There’s nothing else like it, it’s one of very few big estates in Wollstonecraft and having the level lawn and the tennis court makes it a standout,” Mr Smith said.

“The house is in a really good spot on the block. It’s just got a really nice feel to it and it’s got very good family functionality.”

The home has a big focus on outdoor living.

The chef’s grade kitchen melts into the dining room, family room and poolside terrace.

Inside, the home offers a range of formal and informal living and dining spaces, as well as a rumpus room on the lower level adjoining the home gym.

The main bedroom is a treat, and has a wraparound terrace with a view stretching from the Harbour Bridge across the city skyline to the Anzac Bridge and beyond, as well as a decadent ensuite and dressing room.

The property is for sale by expressions of interest, closing on or before 4pm, September 30.
