One of Newcastle's finest properties has come to market and the grand New Lambton residence is expected to attract widespread interest.
The sprawling 2648 square metre property at 24-26 Curzon Road not only enjoys an exclusive address, it offers a secluded estate close to the city.
It is on the market for the first time in 33 years and the owners told the Newcastle Herald they will be sad to say goodbye but it was time to move on after raising their family at the much-loved property.
Privacy and land size provided the appeal. They have enhanced the home and property, including a renovation and extension that was designed by EJE Architecture and remained sympathetic to the circa 1940s residence known as Milloo.
The property is across three titles of land with second access from Ridge Lane. It features a full-sized tennis court, swimming pool, spa and beautiful landscaped gardens and grounds.
The spacious, two-storey residence has five bedrooms, including a whole floor parents' retreat with a kitchenette, his and hers walk-in robes, an executive home office and private balcony.
There are a further two bathrooms, a study, formal and informal living and dining rooms, a granite-topped kitchen with butler's pantry, high ceilings, French doors and timber floors. Outside is covered entertaining and two oversized garages.
Milloo is located close to John Hunter Hospital, schools, New Lambton shopping village and cafes.
It is being marketed by PRD Newcastle and Lake Macquarie's Mark Kentwell, Chasse Ede and Natalie Tonks. A price guide has not yet been disclosed.
Inspections are by appointment only.
