Brockleigh, Landmark Italianate Boom Style Residence

Property ID: 5395564

In a dress circle position fronting Hollis Park, this magnificent two-storey family residence stands on a large 480.6sqm block with landscaped gardens, a spacious alfresco barbecue area and swimming pool.

With impressive proportions and superb Italianate Boom Style features, it is one of eight grand manor homes built during the mid-1880s in the blue ribbon street originally known as LAvenue.

Set at the corner of Warren Ball Avenue and Georgina Street, the immaculately maintained and beautifully presented house has a handsome facade with a wide wraparound verandah and iron-lace balconies.

Named Brockleigh, it originally was the home of George S. Brock who developed the street’s other majestic villas as well as a splendid row of terraces on Georgina Street.

Spanning two spacious levels plus a basement cellar, the imposing slate-roofed house commands sweeping views towards Botany Bay from its upper level verandah.

Quiet and private, it has generously proportioned rooms with bay windows, soaring ceilings, ornate cornices, polished timber floors and beautiful original features including marble fireplaces and select timber species joinery.

At entry level an original tessellated tiled hallway, interconnecting formal sitting and dining rooms, a modern open-plan gas & timber kitchen, spacious family living & dining areas, a breakfast conservatory, large office (with separate entry), a bathroom (with easy access to the pool area), concealed laundry and abundant storage. Glass-paned french doors, in the family living area, open to the outdoor entertainment areas and pool.

Two staircases lead to the upper level which has a huge main bedroom (with a book-matched slab marble ensuite, verandah & separate sitting room or nursery), three more king-size bedrooms (with built-in wardrobes) and a large main bathroom with a bath and separate shower.

Mod cons include gas heating bayonets, air-conditioning, Foxtel wiring and garden irrigation.

Featuring three street frontages and a separate gated entry from Georgina Street, this remarkable property is a short walk from Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, University of Sydney, Eveleigh Farmers’ Markets, city transport (buses & trains), and King Street shops & restaurants.
