House Snoop... Palatial Home with Historic Beauty.

This beautiful Palatial home located on Sydney's Upper North Shore suburb of Wahroonga, although now sold, is located just around the corner from my home and I often pass it when walking to and from Wahroonga Village, the station and talking our dogs from a stroll... It is as pretty as these pictures - to use a big cliche-  if not more so in real life, and has a significant design and architectural historical aspect to it. It was named 'Cullingral' circa 1920, and designed by Architect Alfred Hale, who was also the architect responsible for the iconic Bathers Pavilion [Balmoral Sydney, amongst other notable structures through the North Shore of Sydney. I think I have mentioned this before - I always love to see the interiors and rear yards of these stunning homes that I often pass and admire...a little [snoop] window!
This property was also represented by a friend [also an old school friend] Residential Sales Executive Belinda Edwards, of Mcconnell Bourn and her colleague Andy Howden. Belinda & I recently got back in contact with one another when we literally bumped into each other in Wahroonga Village almost a year ago - she also lives not far from us in Wahroonga amongst other coincidence we later found out also -such a small lovely world! Aside from knowing Belinda - I have always found that Mcconnell Bourn represents many of the most gorgeous properties on the North & Upper North Shore...
I particularly love their 'Boutique' Magazine , which you can view online also, that is both inspirational and highly aspirational!
Hope you enjoy this
