Waterfront access next door to old bachelor pad
The prestige property at 7A Woolwich Rd, Hunters Hill, has the dubious honour of being next door to an old bachelor pad.
Clifton, a heritage-listed Hunters Hill mansion, became the location for series’ 2 and 3 of reality TV show The Bachelor.
The 125-year-old property, listed by the National Trust, was once the matrimonial home of the late Michael Grace and his wife Carol, of the Grace retail family.
But in 2014 and 2015 it was given over to a romantic melodrama involving one man, (initially) 30 women, and endless rose ceremonies.
The property was also used for the filming of the first series of The Bachelorette in 2015.
At the time of filming for The Bachelor series 3, local residents expressed their collective despair at having to endure noise from Clifton well beyond 11pm.
The Bachelor, and accompanying media circus, has long gone.
Peace reigns supreme at this beautiful property at 7A and its surrounds.
The stunning five-bedroom house on 1195sqm comes with some highly desirable assets to rival those of any bachelor’s superior high-end digs.
These include a private slipway to the water’s edge with an option for a private mooring, a heated wet-edge pool, spa/sauna room, Koi fish pond (for romantic, contemplative or break-up moments) and off-street parking for six cars.
The owners of six years have carried out sympathetic renovations and enhanced some of the property’s more classic design features from the interwar period that include bold hardwood timber finishes and ornate parquetry floors.
Multiple living zones both inside and out provide a huge number of lifestyle and entertaining options.
And all this set against a stunning river backdrop.
The property is for private treaty sale through Tracey Dixon and Lee Dowdall at McGrath — Hunters Hill.
