A Vintage Original On Woollahra's Most Exclusive Street


Original homes in this coveted pocket of Woollahra are incredibly rare and few offer as much potential as this two-storey semi on exclusive John Street. Available for the first time in over 70 years, the three-bedroom property holds a significant place in Australia's boxing history as the family home of one of the country's top boxers and Australian team trainer Bruce Farthing. Essentially a blank canvas in need of complete renovation, there's so much potential here with a perfect north to rear aspect and tranquil views over the heritage rooftops from the upper level. A relatively basic revamp will ensure a rental income during the DA process with scope to capitalise on its sunny aspect and prestigious location with a creative redesign that takes full advantage of its deep block. It's around the corner from Queen Street's cafe-lined high street and 300m to the gates to Centennial Park with easy access to the city and beaches.
