Iconic Property on Triple Block with Epic Views and DA Approval for Trophy Home

8 4 2

With its elevated vantage that provides the most beautiful reminder that this is a city by the sea, 180-degree panoramic views across Newcastle to the beach, ocean and mountains beyond provide an epic backdrop to this iconic mid-century residence believed to have been commissioned by the Stangers Family and built in 1948. Positioned on three titles totalling 2,333sqm, throw yourself into a life-less-ordinary, watching whales breach, ships glide by and sunrises from your bed, or take the staircase down to the road and run barefoot to the beach or ocean baths for an early morning surf or swim.

The Californian mansion style home is accessed via Gregory Crescent, off Hickson Street. Its stately proportions and two-level floorplan currently offers an array of living zones and up to 8-bedroom, 4- bathroom accommodation. Wrapped by established gardens and level lawns, with a 15m saltwater pool, this is a property designed for entertaining on a grand scale.

DA approved to remaster into a simply spectacular trophy home featuring everything on your wish list including multiple living spaces, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a gymnasium and sauna, maid's quarters, rooftop terrace, billiard room and multi-vehicle garaging, this truly is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to live the dream in this remarkable location.

Alternatively, those with a love for mid-century modern, Hamptons or Palm Springs style architecture may choose to renovate and re-style the existing home. Property developers will see value in the under-capitalised landholding to subdivide and build multiple dwellings, subject to council approval.
