About this listing

SOLD - This listing was sold in May 2019.

Both in scope and situation we would describe this opportunity as "one-in-a-million". Nestled into a quiet residential setting, just minutes from local services and the CBD, "Leelands" is a delightful package offering bounteous gardens, character charm and modern convenience.

Built in the 1880's, the homestead retains its original Kauri detailing whilst sympathetically integrating contemporary enhancements, including partial double glazing, new roof and underfloor heating. Current owners have upgraded both bathrooms and renovated crucial kitchen/laundry spaces with the expertise of Palazzo Kitchens. Entertainers will adore the multitude of living spaces, which provide options from grand affairs to intimate gatherings.

The home's ambience is decidedly European and nowhere is this more evident than in the grand gardens, which reveal themselves through a series of landscaped "rooms". From the Italianate summerhouse to the Dovecote Garden, it's not hard to imagine you are in Tuscany or Provence. An outdoor area adjoining the conservatory even includes an outdoor pizza oven.

And the bonanza? A pre-existing subdivision consent offers you the option to divide the mouth-watering 4,648 m2 parcel into three plots, while retaining the homestead's privacy and outlook.

But with our owners' offspring now grown and flown, their decision to downsize means lucky new purchasers will reap the rewards.
