Special piece of history comes with heritage home in ‘golden triangle’ of prized Sydney suburb

Heritage charm meets contemporary flair in this century-old home in Alexandria’s coveted ‘golden triangle’. 

Sold only a handful of times in its 100-year history, 51-53 Suttor Street comes complete with the original 1922 plans and the architect’s handwritten specifications.

“The home was tightly held by the same family for most of its 100 years,” selling agent Shaun Stoker from Ray White Surry Hills said. 

One of only a few freestanding houses in the leafy precinct, the property is attracting strong attention from locals. At almost 300sqm on two titles, it sits on one of Alexandria’s largest residential blocks.

“Locals understand how hard it is to get into this street,” Mr Stoker explained. “It has the spacious feel of suburbia, right in the city.”

Walking distance to Redfern and Erskineville train stations, the property is close to the buzzing precinct of South Eveleigh. 

Vibrant cafes and restaurants, including Kylie Kwong’s new eatery and The Alex by Merivale, are on its doorstep, as are local institutions Bitton Cafe and Naked Brew.

“The home is gorgeous as it is,” Mr Stoker said. “But there’s a lot of potential to add value by opening up the back or going up a second level.”

Impeccably renovated, with a central hallway, polished floorboards, ornate 3.1m ceilings and an original fireplace in one of the bedrooms, the home captures the spirit of the 1920s.

Contemporary finishes blend the heritage styling with modern sophistication, including Bosch kitchen appliances, oak bench tops, plantation shutters, mosaic bathroom tiling, and a rainfall shower. 

A custom pull-down wall bed doubles as a desk space and the thoughtful renovation has maximised storage space. 

Wifi-controlled ducted air conditioning, Cat6 cabling, and automated irrigation make living in the historic home a breeze.

The listing has attracted strong interest, particularly from locals who know how rare it is. Picture: realestate.com.au/buy

Outside, there’s an all-weather entertainer’s deck and vertical garden along with a sunny and private tree-framed lawn.

“Stock like this is rare,” Mr Stoker said. “A local might love this house. It’s a once-in-a-decade opportunity to buy something like this – a classic beauty in a family-friendly neighbourhood.”

An auction will be held on Saturday 25 June at 2pm, with price expectations above $2.8 million.
