Vacation Home Apartment Finchley
233 Old Canterbury Road, 2203 Sydney, Australia –
Start of dialog content
The apartment is part of the original Finchley mansion built in 1887. Featuring a number of original features such as unusually large bedrooms with ornate fireplaces, 3.6m high ceilings and wrap-around verandah accessible from each bedroom as well as the kitchen/dining area, the apartment has been lovingly renovated and restored to offer many modern amenities such as fast and reliable internet throughout the property, quality kitchen and bathrooms. The high quality furniture, original oil paintings and hand-woven wool rugs have been carefully purchased by the owners over the years, making the day-to-day living in the apartment a quality experience. Located only 10 minutes walk to the light rail stop of Dulwich Hill and 5km from the Central Business District (CBD), Finchley is a holiday apartment like no other in Sydney (literally)!
The property owners, Daniela and Michael, purchased the Finchley mansion in 2004 in an almost unlivable state. Inspired by the building's history, we chose to restore the mansion. As avid travellers who enjoy learning about different cultures and living in unique places, we decided to open Finchley's doors to world travellers, offering them the opportunity to learn about Australia's rich history and provide a unique holiday experience.
The Finchley apartment is located in the trendy and culturally rich suburb of Dulwich Hill, located ony 5km from Sydney's CBD. Together with other neighbouring suburbs like Marrickville, Ashfield, Summer Hill and Petersham, Dulwich Hill is part of Sydney's inner-west district, which offers a modern lifestyle, reliable and varied public transport options (i.e., train, light rail and bus services) and close proximity to Sydney's world renown tourist attractions. The property is strategically located on the border of Ashfield - with a unique Asian majority culture, Summer Hill - home to fine Italian restaurants, cafes and deli shops, and Marrickville - the multicultural hub of Sydney's inner-west. The station of Summer Hill, 1km from the apartment, provides frequent and direct train services to Sydney CBD (20 minutes ride), as does the light rail stop of Dulwich Hill.
