Core Photography Shoots: Esteemed Architect Professor Leslie Wilkinson residence

Set on a prominent corner parcel with gun-barrel harbour views, `Greenway’ was built in 1923 by its owner, the esteemed architect Professor Leslie Wilkinson. Exuding refined grandeur and timeless period appeal, this incredible residence offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a piece of Sydney history. Grand proportions reveal a sequence of exquisite formal and informal living and dining rooms and a chef’s gourmet marble kitchen, while French doors open to a sun-soaked Travertine entertainment terrace with iconic city skyline, Harbour Bridge and Opera House views.

The home is an exemplary example of early twentieth-century architecture in Sydney’s most sought-after suburb. The property has been lovingly restored by its current owners who have retained its original character whilst adding contemporary touches throughout.

Greenway combines classic proportions with luxurious finishes including beautiful parquetry floors throughout the main entry hall which leads through to the formal lounge room overlooking the stunning terrace overlooking Sydney Harbour Bridge, Opera House and Bayside suburbs beyond. There’s also an impressive formal dining room with marble fireplace complete with original artworks from the owner’s private collection

This was definitely one of our favourite and a very memorable shoot for the Core team given it’s rich history.
