Greenwich 'Rockleigh' 2 Richard Street
A landmark c1882 waterfront manor
A landmark home of rare grandeur and historical importance, 'Rockleigh' is universally acknowledged to be one of the North Shore's finest waterfront properties. Built in c1882 and originally intended as an inn, this iconic Victorian residence is presented to the market for the first time in over 35 years.
Dominated by views that stretch uninterrupted across historic Greenwich Baths and tranquil inner harbour to the distant city skyline, the majestic arch of the Harbour Bridge can be glimpsed soaring above the treetops of sought-after Manns Point. It benefits from its own private beach and slipway.
Sympathetically melding timeless period character with modern functionality and versatility, the home flows over four magnificent levels. With vast internal proportions and a commanding yet private street presence, there is a selection of casual and formal entertaining options. With both separate and internal access to the main home, there is a secluded self-contained guest apartment.
With substantial separate lounge and dining rooms and a vast upper level rumpus/bedroom with ensuite, the spacious entertainer's kitchen has stone benches and Blanco gas appliances. Expertly landscaped with a sun-washed level lawn, the gardens also include a vast dining terrace.
Additional features include a large wine cellar, soaring ceilings, fireplaces, polished floors, workshop/storeroom, plantation shutters, mosaic lined foyer, double carport and a lacework balcony. Epitomising elegance and exclusivity, this remarkable offering is prestigiously placed moments to ferries and parklands and under fifteen minutes to the heart of the CBD.
