Vaucluse home has iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House views
Having woken up to an iconic harbour view every morning for a decade, no wonder the owners of this incredible Vaucluse home have one requirement for the apartment they’re downsizing to.
The five-bedroom, four-bathroom home, at 10A Dalley Ave, has a $13 million price guide via Ray White Double Bay’s Kate Zuppicich and Elliott Placks with conjunction agents Michael Paroulakis and Brad Pillinger of Pillinger.
“We do want a view … somewhere up high,” businessman Richard Kaljo said. Richard, with wife Lilli, raised a family in this slice of heaven that’s tucked away down a long driveway well back from the street.

The well-built three-level five-bedroom, four-bathroom home, designed by architect David Walker, sits on a huge 1,173 sqm block with manicured gardens and a pool.
The master suite, with two walk-in-wardrobes and a luxurious ensuite with spa bath, has the best view in the house, taking in the Opera House, Bridge and city.
This opens to terrace, as do the neighbouring three children’s bedrooms. All three have large built-in wardrobes and there are two bathrooms close by for their use.
The view from the casual living, dining and kitchen area below is also gobsmacking. There are double Miele dishwashers in the large well-appointed kitchen with island bench.
Next door, there’s a formal living room with huge window and plenty of wall space for an art collection. The formal dining room, directly behind, opens through bi-fold doors to a rear courtyard.
The Tasmanian Oak floorboards in the hall and casual living area — undoubtedly the most lived-in part of the house — have recently been repolished and the house is full of light thanks to numerous skylights.
The large home office, which opens to its own balcony, would be a very pleasant place to work and has quality built-in cabinetry.
There’s a double lockup garage but off-street parking for four more cars. You’ll need that because the kids will never leave home. Good schools are close by and you can even see Kincoppal from the balcony.
Kate Zuppicich, of Ray White Double Bay, says: “Perched high on the hill with a dramatic view to the Bridge and city, this is a classic family home.”
Michael Paroulakis, of Pillinger, says: “With never-to-be-built-out views, this oasis offers a range of indoor and outdoor entertainment areas.”
