A Belmont North house that boasts its own heated indoor pool and cannot be seen from the road offers “a slice of country on the coast”.

Louise Vico from Viking Realty and David Phelan from Dalton Partners have listed the architecturally designed house at “blue ribbon address” 14 Eagles Nest Close, for offers between $1.685 million and $1.75 million.

“It’s five minutes to Redhead Beach yet you feel like you could be in the Blue Mountains,” Ms Vico said.

“Every room offers a beautiful vista of maple trees, jacarandas and lovely hedges.”

The split level house is on a fully fenced 10,320 square metre block featuring established gardens. It has six bedrooms, five bathrooms; a kitchen with island bench adjoining the dining area; an open living area surrounded by expansive windows; polished blue gum timber flooring and a wine cellar.

Ms Vico said the current owners are the second to live at the property.

The house is open for inspection today, from 12noon to 1pm.

 VICTORIAN CHARM

Labor of love: The terrace includes refurbished original pieces: lace work, exposed brickwork and Kauri pine flooring, which was placed over a new structural floor.

A refurbished Victorian terrace in Cooks Hill dating back to the 1920s will go under the hammer next week.

James and Lawrence Foteff –  sons of award winning developer Steven Foteff from Foteff Property Group – bought the two terraces at 222 and 224 Darby Street four years ago. Steven Foteff re-entered development after a 17 year hiatus to mentor his three builder sons Luke, James and Lawrence and oversaw the comprehensive renovation of the two terraces, plus the construction of a new stand-alone residence at the rear. Dalton Partners’ Anthony Merlo has listed the only terrace available to the public, 222 Darby Street, for sale by auction at 2.30pm on June 24. Mr Merlo said the three bedroom terrace was the “ultimate city abode” and “undoubtedly the best refurbishment of a Victorian terrace I have seen”. It features an ensuite, covered alfresco area and courtyard, carport and ducted air conditioning.

Bidding is expected to start around $1,050,000. The property is open for inspection today and tomorrow, 12.45pm to 1.30pm.
