2 Crescent St, Hunters Hill.
IT would be so much fun to host a summer party at 2 Crescent St, Hunters Hill.
And when it was over, it would be tempting to wind down in one of many indoor and outdoor escapes in this beautiful 1930s house that has, like its garden, been lovingly tended by owners invested in its longevity.
The stately house is named “Mycumbene”, an indigenous word that means “here we sit down”.
“Mycumbene has so many places to sit — lots of little balconies and annexes and private rooms,” McGrath Hunters Hill agent Tracey Dixon said.
“The whole house is orientated to the north and the north-facing living spaces capture all the light.”
A glance at the floorplan shows at least five living zones inside the main house.
A family room at entry level has floor-to-ceiling glass walls and a bay window lined with pastel stained-glass panels.
Timber floors and timber ceiling fans wrap up the classic British Colonial feel of this area.
A second level offers an array of living areas that flow from an ultra modern kitchen, and butler’s pantry, that gleams with stainless steel and thick marble benches.
Timber floors, pastel window panels and bay window emphasise the unique charm of 2 Crescent St, Hunters Hill.
Exterior entertainment zones are also in abundance.
A luxurious cabana with a skillion roof (no thatching here, thank you very much) and terrace next to the infinity pool is the ultimate realisation of a casual gathering space.
It contains a modular bench with seating, storage and a barbecue plus a pizza oven.
A large family would thrive in a house with six king bedrooms, six refurbished bathrooms, a home office and media games room.
Other highlights include original features such as timber floors and ornate ceilings.
“It’s a great summer house,” Ms Dixon said.
The property goes to auction on Saturday, November 17, with price comparisons to 3 Jeanneret Ave, Hunters Hill, which sold in February 2018 for $7.8 million and 52 Woolwich Rd, Hunters Hill, which sold in March 2018 for $7.7 million.
The formal lounge is warm and cosy in winder and can be opened to the balcony in summer.
