Historically significant and grand in ambience and proportions, 'Poitiers' is an iconic Killara estate presiding over a magnificent 1,906m2 site with a wide 35m frontage. Built in 1904, it was once the home of Bert Oldfield for which the nearby ovals have been named. Tightly held for 40 years, homes of this pedigree are rarely available providing the opportunity to stylise to taste and restore to its former glory.

Upon entry, the beauty of the classic architecture is immediately evident with rich timber joinery, soaring ceilings with decoration and several original fireplaces. Sweeping across a substantial single level it boasts a decadently proportioned ballroomsized formal lounge and music area and large formal dining.

Some enhancements over the years include a gorgeous provincial inspired gourmet kitchen with stone and timber benchtops, quality European appliances and an adjoining dining area. These spaces step out to the expansive alfresco terrace which overlooks the 14m sandstone clad pool.

Four bedrooms have been privately and peacefully positioned in their own wing, all wellproportioned with builtin robes. Delivering premium parental comfort, the master is palatial in size adjoined by a large ensuite and versatile dressing room.

Further desirable features include original timber flooring, study, internal laundry, home office or 5th bedroom option, outside toilet, lawn areas for the children and a large double lock up garage with adjoining workshop.

This is a home of rare distinction which embodies all the romance and elegance of its past. Benefiting from a sundrenched north to rear aspect and positioned amongst beautiful and stately homes, it's a onceinageneration opportunity to own part of Sydney's rich history. With its elegantly designed front gardens with circular centrepiece feature, the grounds represent precious real estate in this desirable suburb, resting a quick stroll to Killara Oval and bus services, walking distance to sought after Killara High School and railway station, with easy access to Chatswood's shopping and restaurant hub and excellent public and private schools.
