Living at 23 Wentworth Rd, Vaucluse will give you an incredible views of the harbour.
Sitting in one of Vaucluse’s most loved and exclusive streets, this grand home is surrounded by the well-established dwellings of the prestigious peninsula.
Thanks to a recent meticulous renovation, the property is actually a contemporary residence packed with designer finishes and gun barrel views of the harbour.

Fancy a free house with your land?
The home has harbour-facing windows in a bulk of the rooms.
The current vendors have owned the 943 sqm property for almost two decades, but back in 2015 decided to give it a complete rework with Briony Fitzgerald Design.
The result is a like-new luxury address with three living levels, multiple savvily designed living spaces, several terraces, six large bedrooms, five sleek marble bathrooms and parking for up to five cars.
Entry to the home is either via a covered walkway from the double lock up garage or down through the tiered sandstone steps to a leafy entry courtyard.
Past the grand double timber doors the entry foyer opens onto a central lounge room with deep timber floorboards and industrial inspired full-height steel and glass doors feeding out to a tiled terrace. This long open- plan layout means the picturesque harbour and neighbourhood treetops are at centre stage as soon as you move through the front doors.
At entry level is also a state-of-the art gas kitchen with a walk-through butler’s style pantry area and a long dining room fit for a huge feast, as well as a family room that opens to the front courtyard.
In addition, the family laundry and a glamorous guest bathroom are tucked away to the left of the foyer. A home office is located on a mezzanine level.
Upstairs, four of the six bedrooms have built-in wardrobes and two have ensuites.
The main bedroom also has a walk-through wardrobe. The main ensuite is palatial even by five-star hotel standards with a freestanding bathtub that soaks in the harbour outlook and twin vanities.

Three of the bedrooms also share a harbour facing terrace.
The home is a short walk from Nielson Park and popular family spots Milk Beach and the Hermitage Foreshore Walk.
With a $11 million price guide, the Wentworth Rd house is well above the $5 million median price for houses in the Vaucluse area, although the median includes sales data from both waterfront and non-waterfront sales.
Vaucluse remains one of the few suburbs where prices are still growing — CoreLogic figures showed the median house price increased 10.5 per cent over the year to August.
