For Sale Expressions of Interest

Inspect By Appointment

Built in 1900 and first time offered in 57 years, this is a classic example of Federation architecture and local history. Fairhaven also known as 'Wonga Wonga' is an impressive heritage home located on the prestigious Woolwich Peninsula. With a perfect north facing aspect, it commands panoramic views of the Lane Cove River across to Woodford Bay, Northwood and Greenwich. This turn of the century two-storey residence on 1,542sqm (approx.) incorporates landscaped gardens with rockeries, lawns and easy access to the waterfront.

With such immense potential Wonga Wonga presents a unique opportunity to refurbish and restore this waterfront home to its former magnificent splendour and grace. It offers a versatile floor plan encompassing formal and informal living and dining rooms on the ground floor, whilst upstairs, previously configured as six individual units, it would readily convert to five large bedrooms. Many period features have been retained throughout, from superb leadlight windows and ornate ceilings to original tiled fireplaces and elaborate fretwork arches whilst the front sun-drenched sitting room enjoys panoramic water views.

A rare offering in this blue-ribbon neighbourhood, close to village amenities and transport links, this formerly prestigious property provides an opportunity for an innovative and elegant restoration to its former opulence within the unique and historic surrounds of this heritage suburb.
