'WAITANGI’ – c1896

‘Waitangi’ sits amongst a very tightly held and unique stretch of homes where you’ll find some of the finest examples of architecture from different eras all within 100 metres.

Originally built in 1896, it’s one of the finest examples of architecture from the late Victorian era you’ll find.

North facing and sitting on a 1,577sqms allotment with rare R3 zoning, it also has the benefit of one of the most convenient locations in the area – just 120 metres from vibrant Leura Mall and the Train Station.

It’s current usage is a residential home but could also make an exquisite place of work (subject to council approval) due to the flexible zoning.

The property has undergone an extensive heritage restoration yet it’s been enhanced with some modern touches too.

The current layout consists of 4 bedrooms downstairs and a further bedroom plus sitting room upstairs in the attic. There’s a formal lounge and separate family/dining which flows through sliding doors onto an expansive but private timber deck.

A renovated kitchen with pantry also opens onto the deck and there’s a near-new bathroom with claw-foot bath, pedestal sink and second adjacent toilet. There’s also an internal laundry.

The lock-up garage is used as storage with additional storage in the loft above. It also has an attached room with power originally used as a potting room but would also make an ideal workshop, hobby space or more storage.

Waitangi has previously featured in the Leura Garden Festival. You’d be forgiven for thinking this would be synonymous with a lot of work but the gardens have been designed to be low maintenance but still have flair.

Just some of the stand-outs include the Artisan built ‘found objects’ metal sculptures, custom paving & stone work and a collection of heritage listed trees including a rare Australian Birch tree and two gigantic Deodar trees. For convenience, there are large rainwater tanks connected to irrigation.

We love the rear gate in the garden which gives direct pedestrian access to the Council carpark leading to Woolworths and an easy short-cut to Leura Mall.

Just some of the period features within the home include wide weatherboards, fireplaces in working order, stained glass windows, French doors leading onto the magnificent wide verandah and timber flooring.
Modern conveniences include central gas heating, back to base alarm, CCTV system, data points throughout, flyscreens, gas cooking and instantaneous gas hot water.

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