'Ocean View' Grand Landmark Family Home - Estate of M. M. Wirth "Wirth Circus"
An historically significant Sydney residence, in a premier coastal position, this magnificent property was built in 1916 as a family home for Philip Wirth, founder of the famous Wirth's Circus. Occupying one of the area's largest land parcels (1693 sqm), this sprawling home is surrounded by immaculate level gardens, while its beach side position affords panoramic views of the ocean and coastline.
The home stands in well kept, original condition and is a fine example of the elegant grandeur of a bygone era. Flowing over two vast levels, interiors are encased by wide verandahs and northerly sun, with soaring ornate ceilings, fireplaces in virtually every room and secluded gardens all add to this home's immense appeal.
Accommodation comprises 6 huge bedrooms each with ensuite - most of which still feature the original claw foot bath, eat-in kitchen with original stove, 2 walk-in pantries and a utilities room. Adjoining the kitchen is a family room, while the enormous formal lounge and separate formal dining room are truly magnificent in size. In addition, the home has an upper level attic, spacious entrance hall, garaging, separate servant's quarters, cellar and
