Few properties in Sydney have as much prestige or historical significance as The Keepers Cottage, an expansive cliffside estate next to the iconic Macquarie Lighthouse in Vaucluse.
Built in 1881 by James Barnett on 2,600m² of prized cliffside property, the heritage-list sandstone residence has landed on the market in what some would say is a once in a lifetime opportunity.
The original craftsmanship and colonial influence were preserved when contemporary architect Clive Lucas revamped the property and commissioned the palatial interiors.
Inside, the four-bedroom, three-bathroom home features a whitewashed decor with warm colours, old school fireplaces, and a light-filled front room that backs onto an entertaining deck area with a hot tub.
If that's not enough, there's DA approval for a pool, and additional features include sweeping level lawns (golf tee, anyone?), high ceilings, polished floors, ducted air conditioning and comprehensive home security.
The sandstone cottage is an integral part of Australia's maritime heritage and is offered exclusively to the market by CBRE Residential Agency. Hit up Robert Alfeldi for more information.
