Register now to be notified about early inspections
Estimated August / September
The multi award-winning residence designed by Newcastle architect Brian Suters in 1974 as his own home, is a modern townhouse in a heritage area consisting predominantly of late 19th century terraces. The house is built on a narrow 250sqm block in the Bauhaus tradition over four connecting levels plus a rooftop terrace commanding spectacular 360-degree panoramas of Newcastle.
With far-reaching city, mountain and sea views enjoyed from the upper floor, this dream home takes modernist style, the surrounding environment and the functionality you’d expect from an architect designed residence and delivers a truly unique home. Take advantage of the DA approved plans to restore its architectural beauty and renovate to cater for modern family functionality.
Distinct architectural features synonymous with modernist Bauhaus design are on proud display throughout this incredible property. Geometric forms, exposed brick circular walls, Waffle pod slab concrete ceilings, and an abundance of glass to take in the views and add natural light, while pipe and perspex balustrading delivers a sense of openness into the home.
A choice of living areas is complemented by an unexpectedly deep rear garden and west and east facing verandahs where you can watch the sun rise and set each day. Complete with two first floor bedrooms and a bathroom in addition to three upstairs bedrooms/study and second bathroom, this is a property perfectly engineered for independent living zones and work from home arrangements.
The property’s appeal isn’t just based on its striking architecture. The Hill is centrally positioned within walking distance of the city’s key attractions. Stroll to Darby Street for bustling bars, charming boutiques and endless dining options. Pack a picnic and head to beautiful King Edward Park. Grab your surfboard and towel and head to the beach for an early morning swim or surf or explore Newcastle’s coastal beauty with a brisk walk along the harbour foreshore to Nobbys beach and the breakwall.
