Vaucluse offering first time since 1972

For the first time since 1972 a slice of Sydney’s history is on the market through agent, Evan Williams, of Ray White Woollahra.
A deceased estate, the Californian Bungalow is set opposite the iconic Vaucluse Macquarie Lighthouse and was once a part of the explorer, William Wentworth’s holdings,
“This is a unique opportunity to buy into a truly historic part of Sydney,” says Mr Williams. “The property is in its original condition and was owned by the same family for the past 42 years.”
“Shortly after the family moved into their home in 1972, they also purchased and operated the Watsons Bay General Store.”
As a longstanding Vaucluse resident himself, Mr Williams expects the property to appeal to developers and owner-occupiers alike.
“This is a home that offers such huge potential. It’s set on a vast block of 703 square metres, and there’s scope to add a second level and take advantage of uninterrupted views of Sydney’s spectacular harbour.
“With four bedrooms, two bathrooms and parking for three cars, including a lock up garage, this home would suit a family that is looking to upsize.
“A property like this really is very rare,” says Mr Williams.
178 Old South Head Road, Vaucluse will hit the market this Saturday, 18 January with price expectations above $2 million.
The property will go to Auction on Saturday, 1 March 2014.
