Phone enquiries - please quote property ID 20964
Landmark Historic Building, on the exclusive and expensive Hunters Hill Peninsula - Pet FRIENDLY Unit in Sydney! Available late 2020.
In a small and classy group of only 7 units, (near all owner occupied) formed from the large iconic 'Gladstone' Building - built circa 1884. Contact us, for more outline data and photos, than space allows here.
Rent has been adjusted to $550 to reflect current slightly softer market - was $575 a week under last lease.
Level access ground floor unit, just a short stroll to the gourmet cafes and restaurants of one of Sydney's most desirable and exclusive Village suburbs. HEAPS of shops within a few minute flat walk at the traffic lights, or another brief walk in the other direction, down Alexandra Street.
Hunters Hill is Australias oldest Municipality, and surrounded by historic and elegant housing. And is FAR closer to the city than most imagine - check it on a map! The home next door is valued at ~$A4 million etc. Almost no units exist on the Peninsula itself, hence Hunters Hill is almost never on renter short list suburbs to look at - sadly.
From this point of the Peninsula, right down to the tip of Woolwich, there were virtually no units ever built, or hence ever offered for rent. Hunters Hill is nearly entirely leafy residential homes - all in the multi-million bracket, and is a lovely neighbourhood to reside in. The previous tenant did so for several years.
From 'Gladstone' it is a 2 minute stroll down to the beautiful Lane Cove River. Hunters Hill has THE most historic and grand homes in Sydney, and a walk in the very next street to this unit, will let you immerse yourself in that history. Drive over, and walk around them and soak it up yourself.
Walk up the historic steps to Cullens Lane from Mount Street up sandstone steps right at rear beside this building, and you are transported back to a leafy quiet era, of Victorian elegant mansions - that is like travelling 150 years back in a time machine.

The regular Woolwich Ferry to Circular Quay is a breeze for CBD commuting, and driving to the city is simple if needed - only a few Kms from the GPO. Buses stop right out front, going both west and east directions.
Leafy and treed grounds and common use garden areas are part of the complex, such a wonderful change from any modern built unit complex. A private read of the newspaper in the sun, or a glass of wine or coffee, or BBQ with friends is a strong plus in the outdoor area adjoining the unit, that comes already supplied with table and chairs - see photo - add your own BBQ or umbrella etc, if desired.
There is an office loft type area, with same polished wood floors, that has 4 power points, Phone/NBN connection, and bright new LED lights, for computer and desk lights etc. A previous tenant used that for an Office/Study. Another used it for a child bedroom. It has louvered doors so it can be closed off, and may be handy for some applicants. Easy to overlook, but of surprisingly big size.
Lots of shopping a few minutes flat walk away. Stacks of restaurants and coffee shops in either direction short stroll. IGA supermarket, dry cleaners, dentists, doctors, Post Office, 2 pharmacies etc. The modernised Hunters Hill Hotel is a short walk, and the famous Woolwich Pier Hotel is just down the Peninsula,
Seeking a very discerning and reliable tenant, and the right one will be favourably considered for a LONG lease. The tenant who recently moved out signed a three year lease. Possibly a professional person, or a couple? Past rental references WILL be checked carefully.
St. Joseph's College ("Joeys") is close by, and there are several other well-known schools very nearby - Hunters Hill High School, Riverside Girls High School, and Villa Maria Catholic Primary School etc.
Re pets - an indoor cat will be fine. Some small dogs bark incessantly when owners are not home, and are not a great idea in apartment living. But a *PROVEN* quiet dog would be considered - the previous tenant for 3 years had one, who caused zero issues. Dog friendly units are TOUGH to locate!
Hunters Hill is divided into two distinct zones. The Western section from the Gladesville Bridge traffic lights westwards is referred to as "The Gladesville Side", and the eastern section from Mount Street, to the tip of Wo
