68 John Street, Woollahra

2 1 House


POSITION & POTENTIAL are probably the biggest drawcards in real estate and this one has both in spades. One of a pair, ideally located in a quiet, prestige street just a short stroll from Woollahra village, this delightful terrace is in good comfortable order, but the potential is certainly there to make some amazing improvements. The house itself is typical in layout - all the living areas on the ground level and 2 bedrooms and bathroom upstairs - but the big attraction here is the gorgeous north facing garden studded with beautiful red camellias. There is more than enough space to extend the house further into the northern sun and still have a superb sunny garden to enjoy.

Suburb Guide


Cosmopolitan, refined and charming, Woollahra is 4km east of the CBD. Considered the grown up version of its neighbour Paddington, Woollahra's leafy avenues are lined with a variety of properties.

Some enclaves are dominated by ornate turn-of-the-century homes, others by elegant terraces and historic sandstone cottages, others by Art Deco apartments and some by discrete stately homes secluded by private gardens.

One of its main thoroughfares, Ocean Street, is known as Sydney's 'Consulate Belt', where donsulates reside in grand traditional mansions. Woollahra retains a vibrant village atmosphere based around coffee, dining and perusal of its interesting and exclusive shops.

Woollahra village, as it's known, comprises the area around the junction of Queen and Moncur Streets, which is home to renowned eateries such as Luxe and Bistro Moncur, the gourmet attractions of Simon Johnson, and salubrious boutiques.

Charming pubs are dotted around the suburb, favourites being the quintessentially English Lord Dudley, The Woollahra Hotel, The Centennial and the young and trendy Light Brigade on Oxford Street. The lush expanse of Centennial Park borders Woollahra to the south.
