20 Sycamore Avenue has been Sold
A rare opportunity to secure a piece of history. Built in 1936 by the Gunnersen family, famous for their involvement in the timber industry, on land originally part of the renowned Nobelius Nursery Estate, and featuring established gardens, open grassed areas, mature fruit trees as well as native and exotic ornamental trees. Locally sourced stone has been used to construct decorative Edna Walling style dry-stone walls, steps and pathways that extend around one of Emerald's largest in-ground pools. Situated on approx 3/4 acre, the heritage listed home oozes all the charm of a bygone era, offering 3 bedrooms, central lounge with open fire place, timber panelled walls high ceilings and hardwood timber flooring. Large, double hung widows in the lounge and master bedroom offer a view over the pool below where a row of Tuscan style columns supports a decorative trellis.
Located at the Toorak end of Emerald, in a quiet, no-through road bordering the Emerald Country Club golf course, where the only noise comes from the native bird life or the occasional "fore". Rising up from Sycamore Avenue the property extends through to Poplar Crescent at the rear where a second driveway provides access to parking.
Having been in the hands of the current family since the 1940's, Gunnersen Villa is now being offered for sale, and for those with a sense of history and a love of yesteryear it offers an exceptional opportunity to bring back the shine to what has been a stunning property.
Highlight Feature: In-Ground Pool, Landscaped Gardens, Open Fire Place, Polished Timber Floors
