Historic artist's residence of character and distinction


In a prized lifestyle address right in the heart of Woollahra Village, this is an extremely rare opportunity to acquire a unique slice of history. This charming freestanding sandstone cottage is the former home of renowned Australian artist, author and art critic Elwyn Lynn. It has been lovingly maintained by the same family since 1964.

It's the deep back garden that will be a major drawcard to buyers as it comes complete with a large entertainment deck, a private level lawn and the original artist's studio where Lynn created many of his beautiful paintings. The interiors are light and bright and feature an easy workable floorplan with three bedrooms, an office, separate living, dining and family areas and a kitchen. Original features include timber flooring and soaring high ceilings.

Set on a generous 267sqm (approx.) garden block, the property is perfectly liveable and offers superb scope to renovate and extend (STCA). It holds endless possibilities for downsizers or young families looking to make their mark in the highly popular Woollahra neighbourhood.

This is a great opportunity for buyers looking to capitalise on a potential-packed home that's very conveniently located within a few footsteps to Queen Street boutique shopping, cafes, galleries and dining options.
