89 Petersham Rd, Marrickville

Combining position, elegance and a rare historic beauty, ‘Glendalough’ is a majestic 1890s residence and is one of Marrickville’s landmark properties offering a refined home of size, character and utmost privacy. It makes an exceptional family retreat and creates a lasting impression with its grand proportions, retained traditional features and sophisticated modern additions.

A sophisticated entertainer

A classic Victorian facade is a beautiful introduction to the home, and once you step inside you’ll see how the interiors have been immaculately restored and sympathetically updated by the current owners. There are tall decorative ceilings, lots of original details and ornate fireplaces, all refurbished with meticulous attention to detail. The layout includes flowing traditional formal lounge and dining rooms plus a bright casual living space that leads to the outdoor area.

Cook’s companion

The kitchen is a major highlight and has been custom-built for entertaining complete with stone benchtops, high-end stainless-steel appliances, a built-in wine fridge and plenty of space for entertaining guests while preparing meals. There is also a fully refurbished guest powder room that’s very handy for servicing the lower level of the home.

Alfresco lifestyle

Out the back is a paved entertainment patio and BBQ area that sits serenely in leafy surrounds. There is also a landscaped garden at the front along with a traditional front porch and a secure off-street car space, plus a wide upstairs balcony that captures an elevated outlook over the Petersham Road streetscape.

Character and distinction

Faultlessly presented to ensure a timeless quality, this remarkable home is simply without parallel and provides a quiet sanctuary; yet is within strolling distance to some of Sydney’s hippest entertainment venues. From here you are short strolling distance to wine bars, trendy cafes and live music spots, plus there is the train station around the corner, shopping, Marrickville library and amenities all within easy reach.
