A stunning renovation has breathed new life into a historic Newcastle residence in tightly held Parnell Place.
Walkom Real Estate have listed a Victorian terrace at No.25 built circa 1920 by the Wynne de Glorion family, who managed the Victoria Theatre in Perkins Street.
Wyn Court is located within a short stroll of Fort Scratchley, Newcastle beach and Ocean Baths, Nobbys breakwall and the harbour foreshore and perfectly blends traditional charm with modern sophistication.
It was lived in by Adele, known as “Dell”, Wynne de Glorion until 2011. She was an actress, musical producer and campaigner for the protection of Newcastle East.
The current owners have thoughtfully renovated and restored the residence, which enjoys ocean views from a new timber deck off the rear bedroom upstairs.
