Our home is located near the tip of the quiet peninsula between the Parramatta and Lane Cove Rivers, (where they join to form the main Sydney Harbour).
Woolwich/Hunters Hill was the first suburb established on the northern shore of Sydney Harbour, by French and Italian merchants, bringing their own architects and stonemasons.
Our home and it's neighbour were originally two identical Victorian workmans' cottages, subsequently renovated differently to fit lifestyle, and capture views.
