'Hexham' Magnificent 1897 harbour-view manor.

Constructed in 1897, Hexham is a magnificent Victorian Italianate manor widely considered to be one of Balmain peninsula's most spectacular properties. Commanding mesmerising northerly harbour views from each of its three levels, it's set on a 749sqm parcel of land with a fully secure 8 car garage (145 sqm) and beautifully landscaped grounds by Secret Gardens above.

Lovingly revived to its former glory, the residence tastefully combines classic heritage details with luxurious contemporary touches to create a timeless landmark in the heart of Balmain village.

It contains six elegant bedrooms, two studies and 5 bathrooms. Magnificent formal rooms with original Italian marble and English ironwork fireplaces. Generous informal living and dining spaces embrace the sophisticated Calacatta marble kitchen. Upstairs, an attic level billiards room features a wet bar.

The sublime gardens are a highlight, complete with an all-weather barbeque pavilion overlooking a heated fully fenced mosaic-tiled pool and level lawn, while a rooftop garden is set against a breathtaking backdrop.

Details include soaring 3.6m ceilings, original stained glass, a grand entry hall with ornate Australian Cedar staircase, original black and white marble hallway, ducted a/c and rear lane access to a CCTV monitored eight-car garage.
