102 New South Head Road, Vaucluse

4 2 4 House


Held in the same family since 1949 and straight from the pages of a 1920's Australian novel, this rambling Colonial bungalow has stood the test of time in all its romantic glory. Epitomised by shining timber floors, original wainscoting, high batoned ceilings, leadlights and the like, the home stands at the comerstone of Vaucluse as a poetic piece of local history waiting to be awakened to a new and more modern life. With its vast rear verandah facing north, it captures the best of climate and sunshine year around, enhanced by a delightful view of the harbour beyond the expansive level lawns and garden. Gorgeous as it is, with a possibility of superb Bridge/City views from a second storey extension (STCA), the scope to add value is inspirational. A rare and exciting opportunity.

Suburb Guide


Very much a family oriented suburb, exclusive Vaucluse is all about large blocks of land, lush gardens, swimming pools and sweeping views, either back across Sydney harbour or out to sea.

Located around 9km from the CBD, Vaucluse's architecture reflects a range of eras. The area is noted for its long established sprawling estates, some running down to the harbour's edge and boasting superb waterfront facilities.

On the ocean side of the suburb, in an area known as Diamond Bay, a number of apartment buildings from varying eras provide a more affordable entry into this prestigious address.

One notable landmark is Vaucluse House and Tea Rooms, an historic property which formed an integral part of the area's former Wentworth Estate, to which many of the suburb's earliest homes once belonged.

A number of boutique beaches, gorgeous reserves and harbourside attractions make the suburb both picturesque and popular with families and visitors, with Neilsen Park and Parsley Bay being two of the best known. Wonderfully peaceful and picturesque.
