17 Borlaise Street, Willoughby



Scope to Create Idyllic North-Facing Family Home in Ideal, Serene Location

Zoning: R3 – Medium Density Residential. Zoned to potentially develop townhouses, duplex or semi-detached residences (STCA).

The picturesque first impression of this cottage provides the backdrop where architectural and design creativity can transform it into a sprawling family home. Perfectly liveable throughout as is, this provides the opportunity to spend time living in the serene and sun-drenched location while considering the options that can fully capitalise on this extraordinary Lower North Shore address.

The original cottage has been extended to provide multiple living areas over a split level footprint with the three bedrooms at the front of the residence retaining many of the original features and much of the charm of the earlier home. This includes generously proportioned rooms under high ceilings laced with intricate plasterwork while the main living area is equally expansive and the family bathroom is spacious and sunlit.

The flow continues to the spacious kitchen with gas cooking, then a second large family room that opens to a vast rolling lawn in a north facing garden creating a secluded realm fringed by gardens. This expanse also includes a large workshop that could be reimagined as either a home office or separate accommodation. Equally alluring is the address, in a quiet street this home is a mere 170 metres from Willoughby village shops and express buses, close to parklands and great schools.
