Property Of The Week: 10 Wentworth Street, Dover Heights, NSW
A cliffside architectural masterwork heads to auction.
Welcome to the ‘Lighthouse’ — a landmark home by acclaimed architect Peter Stutchbury and winner of the Wilkinson Award for residential property.
Showcasing a site-specific design that complements its clifftop location in Sydney’s coveted Dover Heights, the four-bedroom residence — complete with large double lock-up garage and three bathrooms — is a heady combination of modern glamour, raw materials and elevated finishes.
Throughout the home, themes of raw concrete on the ceiling, floors and coordinating columns are paired with timber finishes in the kitchen, central staircase and panelled details dotted within the property.
It’s a theme that extends to the home’s outer, offering sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean and Sydney Heads with its curved, concrete exterior mimicking the shape of the cliffs upon which it is set.
The two-level home sees a lower living, dining and kitchen space that is glass on all sides bringing in plenty of light and ocean views. The home features multiple sliding doors that allow seamless access to the ocean-view lawn, inner pool courtyard and further wide terrace.
Within the residence comes the kitchen, fitted with marble benches, Mile gas and induction cooking plus timber flooring underfoot.
Accommodation is located on the upper level, where a lavish main bedroom gazes across the ocean and features large built in/walk-in robes and opens to a private terrace.
Elsewhere a secluded second bedroom offers privacy with an adjoining norther-east facing sitting room or additional bedroom.
A third bedroom could be used as a large bedroom or relaxed living/study space with views across to the surf at Bondi Beach.
Further highlights include the upper double bathroom — a vast space with separate amenities and featuring a central skylight that skewers the centre of the room down to the lower courtyard pool.
The aforementioned pool, courtyard and outdoor entertaining areas further elevate the home’s functionality.
The listing is with Sydney Sotheby’s International Realty’s Michael Pallier (+61 4127 371 522) and is headed to auction on Saturday February 25. Sydneysothebysrealty.com
