Landmark Historic Building, on the exclusive and expensive Hunters Hill Peninsula.

In a small and classy group of only 7 units, (near all owner occupied) formed from the large iconic 'Gladstone' Building - built circa 1884.

Level access ground floor unit, just a short stroll to the gourmet cafes and restaurants of one of Sydney most desirable and exclusive 'Village' suburbs.  The nearby shopping precinct at the traffic lights, has a ton of restaurants and coffee shops, a large modern hotel, an IGA Supermarket, 2 newsagents, pharmacy, and so on.

Hunters Hill is Australia’s oldest Municipality, and surrounded by historic and elegant housing.  And is FAR closer to the city than you most imagine – check it on a map.  The home next door is valued at ~$A4 million etc.  Few units exist on the Peninsula, hence Hunters Hill is almost never on renter short list” suburbs to look at - sadly.

Home prices are very high on The Peninsula - average rents are high too - official figures, not ours - google it!

From this point of the Peninsula, right down to the tip of Woolwich, there were virtually no Units ever built, or hence ever offered for rent.  Hunters Hill is nearly entirely leafy residential homes - in the multi-million bracket, and is a lovely neighbourhood to reside in.  The unit owner so did for many years.

Hunters Hill is divided into two distinct zones. The Western section from the Gladesville Bridge traffic lights westwards is regarded as 'The Gladesville Side' and the eastern section from Mount Street to the tip of Woolwich is 'The Peninsula'.  Real Estate prices and rent prices vary enormously between the two.  Much like Chippendale and Redfern etc - the same area but worlds apart. 

Hunters Hill is NOT for everyone.  It has a small Village friendly atmosphere that totally belies the reality it is a few minutes’ drive from Sydney GPO.  However to live here, in a leafy historic Heritage Building, for around the same price point you'll pay in many nearby high rise featureless unit jungles, has very obvious attractions to some. 

From 'Gladstone' it is a 2 minute stroll to the Lane Cove River.  Hunters Hill has THE most historic and grand homes in Sydney, and a walk in the very next street to this unit, will let you soak up that history.  Drive over and walk around them and soak it up yourself. Walk up the historic steps to Cullens Lane from Mount Street - right beside this building, and you are transported back to a leafy quiet era, of Victorian elegant mansions - like travelling 150 years back in a time machine. 

 

*  Open plan living has soaring ceilings, and superb condition polished timber floors throughout

*  Very modern kitchen with granite benches, SMEG appliances, and a TON of storage

*  Queen-sized bedroom, ample storage, including very large built-in robe

*  Bright bathroom, conveniently incorporating the laundry - block has a shared laundry outbuilding as well

*  Elevated study loft/storage, with light and power, of VERY large size with power and light

*  Attractive common entrance, level access, security intercom system for visitors

*  Security gates, with driveway to rear carport for your use, lots of guest parking, and leafy shared garden areas

*  Minutes walking distance to water’s edge, of both rivers & harbour and many leafy parks – one across road. 

*  Ideal location, minutes to both shops and transport. Bus stops right out front basically.

 

The regular Woolwich Ferry to Circular Quay is perfect for CBD commuting, and driving to the city is simple if needed - only a few Kms from the GPO.  Buses stop right out front, going both west and east directions.

Most units close to CBD are in vast valleys of the same high rise cookie cutter boxes, hence visitor parking is totally impossible most times.  And/or costs a fortune in meters.  Even in nearly Balmain/Rozelle, street parking is totally impossible.

** HERE ** parking is a breeze, and your visitors at any hour, of any day, will have no issue parking readily, only metres from your door.  A really HUGE plus that many overlook.  Not a parking meter in sight.  NO zoned or restricted parking ANYWHERE here - you can legally park 3 metres from your door most times.

Building has been constantly updated.  Interior and common entrances were all professionally painted this month etc. The historic Balcony was replaced this year at a cost of over $150,000 for instance, to the highest Heritage Approved standards etc.

Extensive exterior work is budgeted for at substantial cost, over the next 12 months. This includes upgrading/replacing of all the large covered car spaces out back (which allow for lock up storage as you can see, and hanging roof storage) and exterior painting and updating, and better use of the shady common garden areas.  A tenant signing up a lease NOW, will share in all that greatly increased amenity.

Large leafy grounds and garden areas are part of the complex, such a wonderful change from any modern built unit complex.  A private read of the newspaper in the sun or a glass of wine or coffee with friends is a strong plus.

We seek a very discerning and reliable tenant, and the right one will be favourably considered for a LONG lease.  Possibly a professional person or couple? 

St. Joseph's College is in Hunters Hill, and there are several other well-known schools very nearby - Hunters Hill High, Riverside Girls High,  St. Ignatius College, Villa Maria Catholic Primary etc.

Re pets, an indoor cat or bird etc would be perfectly fine.  Some small dogs bark incessantly etc when owners are not home, and are not a great idea in apartment living of course.

The Unit is empty now. An applicant who can sign a lease NOW will be appealing to us.  email us.

Inspection whenever you wish, but please supply current/recent landlord references and employment status in the first instance by email, which of course WILL be checked, or give us a call, 7 days - until late.
