The sunny balcony with waterviews

The ornate master retreat is located on the home’s upper level with ensuite and balcony.

“There has been quite a few parties who have been looking more closely at the property – it represents a great opportunity to buy something and put your own stamp on a home that has been beautifully built with double brick,” Ms Dixon said.

According to CoreLogic RP Data, the tightly held street has not recorded a sale since April 2018.

A contemporary home set on a 1081 sqm block at 13 Hunter Street topped sales in Woolwich last year when it fetched $11m.

The suburb’s most expensive property is 2 The Point Rd, a 3258 sqm estate, which achieved a price of $22.18m in June 2017.
