Lavender Bay 3 Walker Street
A landmark harbourfront residence of size, creativity and scope
In one of the city's most celebrated harbourfront enclaves, this totally unique multi-level residence offers an exceptional opportunity to acquire a slice of history with one of Sydney's most significant properties. Formerly the home to prolific Australian painter Peter Kingston, this artist's residence is now on the market for the first time in more than 50 years. It retains character, soul and flexibility with beautiful views taking in Luna Park, the Harbour Bridge and beyond.
Imagine waking up to this every morning. Stunning harbour scenery, Wendy Whiteley's Secret Garden teeming with wildlife and a magical sense of seclusion that's perfect for escaping the fast pace of city life. The home spans three levels and has direct private access to the harbourfront reserve leading down to foreshore walks around Lavender Bay.
This attractive property is very well-presented throughout but still has lots of potential to further update, redesign or repurpose to add more value. The current layout has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, multiple living spaces and private balconies orientated to take full advantage of the Harbour Bridge outlook. A self-contained lower-level would be ideal for a home business or guest accommodation - with its own private entrance, plus there is an upper-level attic retreat with magical views.
Rarely does a prospect arise that presents a lifestyle of such history, space and premium positioning, with scope for creative business possibilities, a work-from-home base, home plus income or a spectacular family residence. It now offers an incredible inner urban haven of absolute privacy within strolling distance to North Sydney CBD, Blues Point Road cafes and ferries providing a 5-minute harbour commute to Circular Quay and Barangaroo. Truly, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
