Darlinghurst, NSW 2010

Type of Property: House

Reason for Purchase: Primary Residence

Address: 295 Forbes Street, Darlinghurst NSW 2010

Property Journey:

The buyer approached Cohen Handler with the primary residence brief, but also wanted to add value. The client has spent two weeks in Sydney, thus we used this time to inspect various off; pre; and on-market properties before our buyer had to return to Germany. The terrace was secured on-market, stopping the auction campaign. The purchaser is very excited to return to Sydney later this year and start the renovation project regarding his new dream home located in this superior location.

About the Property:

Grand Victorian with Further Renovation Potential

Spacious interiors feature high ceilings, rich timbers and original period fireplaces, while the split level design displays a traditional terrace floorplan. Generous updates have certainly been made over time, and the property is currently tenanted yielding excellent returns, but ample scope is available to further restore and/or enhance to showcase the true architectural integrity of this classic family home. It’s perfectly positioned in an ultra-convenient urban pocket moments to many of Sydney’s most popular restaurants and cafes, Oxford Street’s entertainment venues, prestigious schools, a choice of shops and excellent public transport.
