Villa Eulalia, 1 Gilliver Avenue, Vaucluse, NSW
Vaucluse homes with the iconic gun barrel view across Sydney Harbour have held a prestige standing since the construction of the Harbour Bridge (although the ‘Manhattanisation’ of Darling Point in the immediate post-war years is what truly propelled the desirability of Vaucluse). 1 Gilliver Avenue is a home that pre-dates the Vaucluse rush, but seems to have always maintained a certain state of elegance.
- The c1912 home sits at one of Vaucluse’s highest points, both in terms of elevation and prestige.
- The home traded in a an unrenovated state in Aug 2001 for $3.4m; within a year of its sale, the new owners put forth a $550k development application to the Woollahra Council for the addition of an “underground garage, one storey pavilion in rear yard, swimming pool with two storey cabana and associated fencing.”
- Add in a William Dangar-designed garden and landscaping and 10 years and now the owners are looking to sell the home with $8m+ expectations.

The home, on 1230 sq. meters, was once owned by FitzWilliam Wentworth, son of William Charles Wentworth, a leading figure in colonial NSW. FitzWilliam sold the property in 1906 for 112 pounds. It has had two owners since 1912, and was in original condition when the present owners bought it in 2001.
Architect John Normyle then designed an extension and restoration to blend the ornate period features with chic modern appeal. The gardens are by landscape designer William Dangar. – Source
