Period splendour on Glebe Point

A fine example of Victorian Italianate craftsmanship, this early 1900s villa holds a significant place in Sydney's maritime history in a tightly held pocket of real estate at the tip of Glebe Point surrounded by scenic harbour parkland and walking trails just 500m to Tramsheds foodie hub. With a tightly held provenance and only a handful of owners in over a century, L'Aiglon was originally the family home of Mervyn Horton (1917-1983) who was the doyenne of the Sydney art world for 30 years. Set on a deep dual access block on the edge of Rozelle Bay, the bay fronted beauty was built on Sydney sandstone foundations and retains its period splendour with an elegant corbelled arch hallway, high ornate ceilings, marble fireplaces and stained glass windows. A magnificent double frontage makes a lasting first impression with a spacious single-storey layout accommodating four bedrooms, a choice of living areas, two kitchens and a wraparound deck capturing tranquil water glimpses.
