This astonishing property, comprising a large character home and a stunning piece of land measuring 1,973 sqm, offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for those seeking a project on a grand scale. Situated in a highly regarded street where beautifully restored character properties sit shoulder-to-shoulder with architectural contemporary residences, the world is your oyster when it comes to planning the future for this magnificent piece of real estate. Zoned for top schools and with St Andrew's College at the end of the street, this is a neighbourhood with enduring popularity.

But the upside is either an impressive restoration of a home with a long list of original character features, overlooking its own private estate in the heart of the city, or a new development to amply accommodate your wildest dreams - the kind of opportunity that is becoming increasingly rare. The existing home really is of a grand scale, with large, interconnected living spaces arrayed across the north side of the home, opening to a veranda and positioned to soak up views across the lawn to a backdrop of magnificent established trees - a private parkland in the inner suburbs. The kitchen adjoins a large utility space, offering options for reconfiguration. A grand central entrance hall and staircase befits a home of this scale and leads to a spacious upstairs landing with overhead skylight. Two bedrooms with en suite bathrooms provide options for either upstairs or downstairs master, while three more bedrooms are amply served by additional bathrooms upstairs and down. A formal dining room adjacent to the entrance could be utilised as additional living or a generously proportio
