‘ Villa Igiea’
Villa Igiea – Magnificent European-style harbourside estate
DDating back to the 1920s, the magnificent Villa Igiea is unquestionably one of Sydney’s finest estates and among its most elite trophy homes, built for the Grace retailing family. Secluded in a prestigious harbourside cul-de-sac high above Hermit Bay, it’s set on a commanding 2,160sqm parcel of land by beautiful Hermitage Walk. Designed by Neville Hampson, the acclaimed architect behind Boomerang in Elizabeth Bay, this landmark residence captures breathtaking panoramic views over Sydney Harbour to the Harbour Bridge and Opera House.
Inspired by the grand villas of Palermo, it was built in the Riviera Liberty style with distinct Italianate Art Nouveau influences. A multi-million dollar renovation has brought the property back to life, reviving it to its former glory while adding every conceivable contemporary comfort. The sprawling estate is surrounded by beautifully landscaped grounds and sun-drenched terraces complete with a pool, all designed to harness the magical outlook.
Boasting grand proportions, it encompasses six bedrooms plus an office or seventh bedroom, four elegant reception rooms, a gourmet kitchen and an impressive entry foyer with a towering chandelier. Beautifully crafted interiors are enhanced by hardwood floors, soaring ceilings and elegant arched French doors. A number of Sydney’s leading private schools are within easy walking distance or a brief drive.
