Located in one of Lilyfield’s most sought-after streets, 18 Chapel Street presents a bold new residence.  Designed by Simon Vaughan Architects and interiors by MXM Design Studio – and built by award-winning boutique building team, Micrah Projects – the new development brings high-end luxury across a dual-level floor plan.

The 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom, with lock-up garage residence sees imported Spanish porcelain tiling underfoot (with underfloor heating on the ground floor), high ceilings, galleries of glass and architectural skylights creating an airy light-filled space.

Further, the interiors – styled by Coloured Pencil – see a lavish kitchen as the centrepiece of the home, fitted with Manhattan marble benchtop and island, Zip hot water unit and integrated refrigerator with an outlook to the garden.

Elsewhere, the home sees flexible, fluid living courtesy of the architectural curves of the living and dining space fitted with a showcase fireplace. A separate family room offers built-in cabinetry and a comfortable space to retreat.

The residence is replete with four luxury bedroom suites all fitted with built-in robes while a study offers a built-in desk with brass inlays and LED strip lighting.

The master bedroom boasts ‘his’ and ‘hers’ robes, built-in bedside tables and a timber panelled feature wall. Here, the master also holds an ensuite, arriving with Manhattan marble – coordinating with the kitchen – and underfloor heating.

The other bathrooms follow suit with the same marble adornments and underfloor heating.

Outside, an expansive covered rear alfresco terrace sees a custom Cedar built-in barbeque and preparation area ideal for entertaining. In addition to the above, a central courtyard with established garden and spotted gum hardwood timber decking is also offered with great connection to the indoor spaces. It also doubles as a garage.

The residence is nearby to the bay and parklands, weekend markets, bus and light rail to Sydney CBD.

The listing is with Cobden & Hayson’s Ben Southwell (+61 407 896 212) and is set for auction on 13 February 2021 on-site. Price guide $3.3m.

The ball is in the buyer’s court with this knockdown/rebuild opportunity

Glenhaven in Sydney’s Hills District is one of those areas that locals tend to keep to themselves. Leafy with large blocks on offer, the suburb takes its name from its valley location, with the northern end originally known as the Glen and the southern end called the Haven. 

En route from Parramatta to the Hunter, Glenhaven has become an ideal place for growing families in search of a little more space, or even room to house several generations under one roof.

The challenge is finding properties that tick all the right boxes.

As demand for trades and supply chain issues continue to ease, now could be the right time for a knockdown/rebuild project for would-be buyers looking to create their dream home.

Fairmont Homes specialises in knockdown/rebuild projects in Sydney. General manager at Fairmont Homes, Daniel Logue, said there are key features to look for when choosing a knockdown/rebuild site.

“The key items we look for are the site falling to the street, not to the rear, to help with stormwater drainage as well as access to the site,” he said. “Neighbouring property front setbacks are also important. In some older areas, the older houses are set closer to the street, meaning your new home will have to be set to suit.

“Value for money and the return on the end sale price of the home is another issue.”

If possible, he said designing a home that meets the criteria of the Complying Development legislation will speed up approvals considerably.

While suitable knockdown/rebuild sites can be hard to find in Glenhaven, there are still hidden opportunities if you know where to look.

One block at 158 Gilbert Road, Glenhaven is ideally suited for rejuvenation. With almost 850sqm to play with, it slopes down to the street and sits between neighbouring properties that have already been stylishly updated.

 

 

An existing basketball court at the rear could provide the perfect teen backdrop to a family home, or it could make way for a larger house with landscaped gardens and pool. Alternatively, it could be the perfect position for a cabana or granny flat to serve as in-law accommodation or a source of secondary income.

With recent sales of completed homes in nearby streets reaching well above $5 million, it’s a great opportunity to make a slam dunk of a buy into one of Sydney’s best kept secrets.

Address: 158 Gilbert Road, Glenhaven
Price guide: $1.8 million
