House prices in Glebe have experienced a 10-year average annual growth of more than nine per cent and increased most dramatically over a three year period with median growth reaching just shy of 40 per cent, boosting the median house price to A$2.2 million.

Large allotments in prime central Sydney locations do not come onto the market very often and this one is a rare find indeed. A grand Victorian Gothic-style residence split over two blocks, this listing would make an excellent addition to a property portfolio or an exciting project for a passionate investor.

The two residences were built in 1875, originally in a group of four. Matching front gables, Edwardian detailing and Art Nouveau motifs are some of the original features that certify the property’s historic authenticity.¬†They could not be closer to the heart of Sydney, a few minutes drive to the picturesque waterside parks and gardens of Blackwattle and Rozelle bay and less than 10 minutes from the CBD.

Concept plans have been drawn up to create either two luxury terrace houses or one substantial home on the generous allotment with triple parking, a guest suite and a swimming pool. Opportunities abound with commercial and residential applications both feasible for this property which features rear access from York Street.

A desirable north-to-rear aspect means the property is not only beautifully nostalgic but well positioned for winter sun while tall trees in the area ensure the summer heat won’t be too harsh. Inside, very high 3.6 metre ceilings and no less than 13 fireplaces are indicative of the residence’s pedigree and historical significance. The house is set back from the street with beautiful period frontage that would make a spectacular entry once restored to its former glory. The large allotment is uncharacteristically private for such a central Sydney location.

Walk 450 metres from the property to trendy Parramatta Road with its eateries, cafes and bars. A little further and you can enjoy a walk around the gorgeous Victoria Park with its playgrounds, green spaces and heritage buildings. This is a rare opportunity to contribute to the vibrant history of this part of Sydney; the two properties will be sold together in one line or separately.
