Grand Federation Estate in Blue Ribbon Eastside Location
A truly unique offering within an exclusive Wahroonga enclave, ‘Malto Ende’ circa 1901 is a brilliant showcase of refined character and stately grandeur. At one time the boarding house of ‘Eldinhope School for Girls’ and later part of the Knox Grammar School estate, the rich sense of history and character remain at the heart of this family home. Lovingly restored and renovated in keeping with its Federation pedigree, it is on the market for the first time in a generation.
Nestled within lush manicured gardens, the home offers grand living spaces, sandstone-framed North/South tennis court and 14m heated in-ground pool. It is the ultimate family sanctuary within close proximity to Wahroonga station, village shops and elite schools.
With a commanding faÃ§ade and grand circular driveway, the property enjoys an exceptional landholding, poised on a magnificent 2,595sqm (approx.) private parcel with access via Lochville Street.
Within the home there is an intimate selection of accommodation options perfectly tailored for growing and extended families. Enhanced by flawlessly interconnected indoor/outdoor entertaining, a secluded guest or potential in-law wing with private entry plus a multitude of intimate alfresco zones, this luxuriously appointed double brick character estate awaits a new family to make it their home.
