Welcome to Coppins, an estate of historical significance sitting on 6000sqm on Sydney's north shore.
Designed and built in 1936 by famous architect Walter Burley Griffin, this fully restored piece of Australian history sits perfectly nestled amongst established tranquil gardens. A true country estate in an urban setting. Set back from the street, the house has maintained its grand curtilage and setting. Sitting high on the Pymble ridge, it enjoys sweeping panoramic district views from the western basin to the city and out to the heads.
Positioned perfectly to capture all day sun, the house is sun filled, light and airy. The genius of Walter Burley Griffin is evident in each and every room. Carefully positioned windows take advantage of the beautiful gardens and views allowing you to enjoy all day sunlight and the changing seasons.
The magnificent gates at the beginning of the sweeping driveway give a sense of arrival as you travel into the tranquility of your own private space. Surrounded by a perfect blend of established rambling gardens blended with structure and purpose by Paul Bangay. The garden is a carefully designed extension of the house with multiple unique spaces including a rose garden, sweeping lawn, sunken garden, pool side gardens, walkways, ponds and fountains. A true "working area" of the property includes sheds, a vegetable garden, rear lane access and a glasshouse.
The striking gloss black front doors open to reveal a large entrance hall with sweeping staircase. The space has a sense of occasion and provides a strong anchor to the rest of the house.
Coppins has multiple entertaining options. The main house has both formal and informal lounge areas, formal and informal dining spaces. Multiple fireplaces feature throughout the property, 2 of them fully functional and 3 modern gas fires. The exterior provides terrace spaces, a pizza oven, cellar and fully equipped outdoor kitchen.
