Hunters Hill 9 Futuna Street
Grand Sandstone Residence
"Meryla" Circa 1889 is a grand sandstone home perched high above the Lane Cove River and is wrapped by an expansive 1,011 sqm block of land. Lovingly maintained and renovated over time there is still further scope to make your mark on this incredible home of distinction.
An impressive stone arched entrance and verandah welcomes you into the home and northerly glimpses of the water are revealed from nearly every room of the home with most featuring soaring ceilings.
The renovated gas kitchen is easily accessed from the double garage and flows to a casual dining room which further opens onto a sunny outdoor entertaining patio capturing the stunning river panorama.
Both formal and informal living rooms have a marble fireplace, bay window and spill onto a beautiful original verandah where the picturesque views are at their optimum. A large study or fifth bedroom compliments the entrance level of the home.
There are two bedroom wings on the upper level of the home with four generously proportioned bedrooms sharing two bathrooms and a multitude of balconies. A lower level self contained room with kitchen and bathroom is perfect for an artist's studio, home office or teenage retreat.
Set in a leafy character filled pocket the home is surrounded by wonderful neighbours and is just a short walk to both peninsula villages for local coffee and dining.
In addition its central location is perfect for those wanting quick and easy access to either Alexandra Street and Valentia Street ferry wharves or Hunters Hill Public School. St Josephs, Riverview and Marist Sisters schools are also nearby and you can almost hear the balls being hit back and forth at the Hunters Hill Lawn Tennis Club.
