Grand "Kooyong" - Character Filled & Exuding History

3 2 6

Behind the picket gates & formal hedges, this exquisite home is steeped in history & has a story to share. Once open surplus land between Hamilton & Cooks Hill mining townships, it was subdivided & developed by AA Coy mining company, the landowner, around 1910. The development became one of Newcastle's earliest & largest examples of a planned garden suburb. Red brick display bungalows with tiled roofs, built north of Jenner Pde were marketed to the more affluent managerial & professional class. This area encompassed 50 Dumaresq St.

Around 1917-1919, successful businessman, Mr George William Pinfold, built this grand home known as "Kooyong". One of the earliest houses built in this Garden Suburb Heritage Conservation Area, it is nestled on a large 1416m2 parcel of land within a series of streets with significant heritage value. The private positioning on the block within manicured gardens promotes a serene ambience amplified with the tiered sounds of nature.

This home has solid bones & offers something truly special. Feature elements nod to a bygone era, sweetly surfacing around the home such as the old school bell at the front door & the immaculate tessellated tiles adorning the wrap-around porch. Indoors is embellished with traditional fretwork, ornately carved timber doors and exceptional cornice & ceiling plasterwork with complementary chandeliers. Formal lounge & dining rooms embrace the dedicated space with traditional Board & Batten panelling, raised ledges, ornate fireplace in the lounge & a small crockery cupboard.

Adaptions to the rear in 1972 contrast to the design of the front of original home with updated kitchen & sunroom, an inviting IG swimming pool & additional rear sheds.

Owner-occupied since 1992, this home is exceptionally located & will appeal to those with appreciation for the vintage home design who will relish the opportunity to renovate in sympathy with core elements of the home.
