In an enclave where sophistication meets tranquility, nestled on the prestigious eastern shores of the Balmain East peninsula, lies an architectural marvel that transcends time and conjures up the nostalgia of TV shows such as the Brady Bunch or Starsky & Hutch. A tribute to the glamorous era of the 1970s, this sizeable residence emerges as a beacon of opportunity and a rare glimpse into the allure of mid-century design.

Captivating the discerning eye with panoramic vistas across Mort Bay and heading further north, the property’s 8-meter frontage and efficient use of the land serves as a majestic frame to a captivating panorama. Stepping through its doors, one is transported into a realm where slate meets exposed brick and a flaring red counter top kitchen will conjure much thought and past memories for any prospective buyers.

Emanating an aura of timeless elegance, this retro classic boasts an immaculate mid-century layout, a testament to its meticulous preservation. Four large bedrooms adorn the upper level, each offering a sanctuary of comfort and style. Picture windows frame tranquil waters, infusing every corner with natural light and breathtaking views.

The heart of the home unfolds in a symphony of split-level living and dining space, beckoning guests to indulge in the art of sophisticated entertainment. Beyond lies a sun-drenched garden, a canvas awaiting the strokes of creativity—a space that could accommodate a pool, amidst the serenity of nature with boats cruising past below.

Perched above the iconic Waterview Wharf Workshops, this property not only offers a home but an exclusive lifestyle—an escape from the ordinary, a retreat into tranquility. With a lock-up garage and expansive basement, the potential for transformation knows no bounds, inviting buyers to infuse their unique vision into its authentic 1970s charm.

From exposed brick walls to hardwood floors on the upper level, every detail exudes a sense of nostalgia and refinement. The spacious retro kitchen, adorned with a breakfast bar, becomes the epicenter of culinary adventures, while the sprawling living room, with its soaring ceilings and two-way gas fireplace, serves as a sanctuary for moments of relaxation and indulgence.

Elevating the experience, the king-sized master bedroom boasts a private sitting area and ensuite, enveloping residents in luxury and comfort. Meanwhile, a playroom or dressing room offers versatility and functionality tailored to individual desires.

With its prime location just 550 meters from Balmain East Wharf and the scenic waterfront at Illoura Reserve, this property presents an unparalleled opportunity for buyers to embrace the epitome of high-end living.
