St Aubyns' Epitome of Heritage and Elegance

Built circa 1856, 'St Aubyns' is a landmark home epitomising the unique blend of historical character and refined contemporary elegance for which Woollahra's leafy streetscapes are admired and desired. One of the area's earliest residences, built in a mid-Victorian style with an iconic sandstone faade, the home features both formal and casual living spaces effortlessly flowing around a central courtyard - a fabulous entertaining space framed by established vines, linking old and new.
The heritage elements of the house have been impeccably restored and maintained, with ornate fireplaces, decorative cornices and soaring ceilings throughout three bedrooms upstairs and the formal sitting and dining downstairs. The original sandstone walls make a fascinating feature as you cross the threshold into the contemporary extension. Nestled between the inner courtyard and the back garden, the integrated casual living spaces with a brand new kitchen enjoy fabulous indoor / outdoor feel. A dedicated stairwell leads to the master wing: a secluded retreat with bright and airy interiors, including an ensuite, a huge walk-in wardrobe and an additional private balcony, basking in the northern aspect with a peaceful rooftop outlook. The back garden with built-in BBQ similarly takes advantage of the northerly light, whilst a versatile studio space sits atop a double lockup garage with laneway access, beside a third parking space.
In the heart of Woollahra, footsteps from the eclectic offerings of the Village, 'St Aubyns' offers inspiring historical grandeur with sophisticated contemporary elegance.
