Move straight in or further renovate.

Positioned on a Newtown highpoint, Ocean View’, built in 1887, was once the recipient of vistas across Botany Bay, and now boasts an exclusive North Newtown address in a highly sought-after street. Wide-fronted and handsome, it retains all the heritage features of the past, possessing a floorplan that is both generous and versatile easily catering to family living.

The heritage charm is immediate, imbued in the timber floors, high ceilings and elegant proportions that are demonstrated in the lounge and dining with slow combustion fire. The Caesar stone topped kitchen with under floor heating is a superior culinary space enjoying a period-style Ilve cooker with gas cooktop and excellent storage and bench space. The adjoining casual living or TV snug is an intimate and cosy retreat. Step outside to the generous and very private wraparound courtyard which allows for comfortable alfresco enjoyment.

Upstairs the versatility kicks in with a large sunroom, bedroom with additional kitchenette/study and a two-way en-suite style bathroom. These areas could easily accommodate guests or the extended family. The master suite is a gracious respite from the busy world enjoying an original fireplace, reverse cycle air-con and opening out to the traditional balcony. The potential exists to add a level to the rear (STCA) and capture sensational views. Nestled in a wide street, there is magic in this location being just a few steps to King Street, Carriageworks, Eveleigh Markets, Sydney University, rail and bus, and just moments to the CBD.
