Description

Elegance, space and privacy define the majestic, historic holding that is ‘Wendover’.

A warm, easy living, family home - the two-level heritage listed property reflects the gracious Colonial Georgian architecture of the era – vast wrap-around front verandah, 5 original fireplaces, high ornate ceilings, bay windows, leadlights, timber floors, slate roof tiles and estate-like gardens.

Originally located on 38 acres, the home was built c1860 by the NSW Government. The sense of history is omnipresent throughout the estate, with special features including the convict-made front gates and much more.

The enormous front verandah, which leads from one of the bedrooms and a large study/office, is the perfect place to survey the lush English-style grounds that have been created with care over many years. Several large trees further enhance the property’s character. A Colebrookdale urn presented by the NSW Botanic Gardens takes pride of place on the lawn under the jacaranda trees.

Over the years, ‘Wendover’ has been fully renovated & upgraded for contemporary living without impinging on the period character, superb grounds and absolute spaciousness.

Overall there are five plush bedrooms, the master suite featuring ‘his and hers’ walk-in robes plus a stylish period ensuite. There are also two other period bathrooms, one with a claw-foot bath and a further sympathetically designed modern bathroom.

Living and entertaining is easy, with a variety of formal and casual spaces – both indoors and outdoors. The huge formal living and dining rooms with magnificent fireplace and Waterford Crystal chandelier flow easily to the carefully created, stone-paved courtyard, complete with delightful pond and fountain.

The open-plan kitchen and informal dining area features a Gagenau gas cook-top, double oven, granite benchtops, dishwasher & pantry. Open the large doors to reveal the sun-bathed courtyard. Another informal living area/family room flows to an adjoining terrace with Northerly aspect, leading to the surrounding gardens.

Just beyond the main home is a separate, newly transformed pool house / entertaining area, ideally located between the championship tennis court and the inground pool with heated spa. This superbly designed building features a fabulous indoor/outdoor entertaining area, built-in bar, bathroom and a state-of-the-art home cinema with motorised screen and Sony surround sound system.

Technologically the home is very advanced, with back-to-base alarm, reverse-cycle air conditioning, integrated sound system inside and out, Foxtel, Optus cabling, 3 separate phone lines, remote-controlled garage and gates as well as sensor lights.

Three car accommodation plus a storage room adjoins the home, and there is plenty of additional guests parking within the property.

With vast land on two titles and dual street frontages, the property has enormous scope and potential.

Combining the best in heritage features and elements of contemporary living, ‘Wendover’ proudly takes its place in highly coveted Eastside Wahroonga, an area renowned for its gracious homes and estates.

A strong sense of community is further enhanced by good rail/bus networks, local village shops, nearby major retail centres, leading private & public schools, pristine national parks & close proximity to main thoroughfares leading to the CBD & wider Sydney region.
