‘ILION’ – c1908

Originally built in 1908 and held by the current custodians for the past 16 years, ‘Ilion’ is one of the finest examples of architecture from the federation bungalow era you’ll find.

North facing and sitting on a 1,842sqms allotment with rare R3 zoning, it also has the benefit of one of the most convenient locations in the area – just 130 metres from vibrant Leura Mall and the Train Station.

It would make for a landmark home or exquisite place of work with DA approval for ‘home employment’.

The property has undergone a detailed restoration/renovation fusing original heritage features with modern conveniences.

Flexibility is key with 5 rooms (bedrooms) on offer, a separate office, multiple living spaces and a renovated kitchen with walk-in pantry and bathroom. There is a large deck overlooking the gardens and a huge wrap around verandah at the front.

Separate to the home is a purpose-built archives room which could also make a great studio and an attached laundry and toilet (wheelchair friendly). There is also the original separate outdoor toilet.

There is a lock-up garage with dedicated hardstand parking for a further 3 vehicles with a lay back for turning.

The current custodians are avid collectors of rare and unusual plants. The grounds have been a continuous labour of love and have previously featured in the Leura Garden Festival. There are several different sections and themes in the grounds including a cool climate woodland garden under the Cedrus Altantica and a mini orchard within the walled garden. One of our favourite features is the magnificent Deodar tree (over 120 years old). The floriferous New Dawn rose hedge is pretty special too!

Just some of the period features include decorative stucco, original fireplaces in working order, stained glass windows, oversized French windows looking into the garden, ornate cornices, timber boarded raked soffits and timber flooring.

Modern conveniences include hydronic heating, back to base alarm, CCTV system, data points throughout, flyscreens, gas cooking and instantaneous gas hot water.

There are simply too many features to list here, so view our video for a full overview.

This is your chance to secure one of the finest heritage properties on offer in the Blue Mountains and a rare piece of history.

For a truly unique offering, you may wish to view the adjacent home ‘Waitangi’ (88 Railway Parade) which is available for separate sale. It also offers R3 zoning and sits on 1,577sqms.
