66 Barons Crescent, Hunters Hill. For Sale via Mc Grath guide $2,000,000
Can’t stop staring at the Ceilings.
I’m a complete convert to this mid-century modern house thing. With small kids running through the house and bumping into doors and furniture a MCM house has less chance of them crashing into a wall or door because there are less walls.
Over to this house in Hunters Hill. There are two sides to HH, the peninsular bit and the other side. This the cheaper side but you still get the Hunters Hill postcode. The Hill is known for grand sandstone mansions and waterside homes, a MCM house, like this is probably ignored, and that’s a good thing for a wise buyer like you. Agent says a local family had it built in the 70s.
The house has been rented and has been staged for selling which is another advantage for two reasons. If you need to re-paint, update or renovate anything before moving in you won’t have issues with access to the property because of current owners or tenants. Secondly, most of this house has been left blank. Apart from the ceilings, the character and style of the original house has been stripped out. Get in a good designer, one sympathetic to this style and give some style back.
What’s missing here is greenery. The view outside to the pool finishes with an ugly fence. Get in a gardener and start discussing greening it up.
Kitchen in a box. Keep the stove.
Flagstones. Sorry temporarily distracted. The view back into these two living areas is perfect for summer family life. I can see what those kids are up to just by sitting here al fresco with my prosecco.
The shade cloth is probably a great idea but plan on updating to a permanent structure or a retractable system.
More greenery needed.
Hello pool fence. North facing backyard so lots of sun on the pool. Would suggest a shaded area or a Basil Bangs beach umbrella ?
I don’t need a street frontage to impress other people. Fence it and live behind it. More room for living.
Floor plan shows bedrooms placed on either side of the house. Keep the child with worst nightmares or bedwetting problem close to the main room and guest or others on the other side.
Location map. House is on edge of Lane Cove River and the river version of the Bondi to Bronte walk. Schools nearby include Hunters Hills High so you can choose a state school if you are inclined.
