Pub Conversion/Construction Site Saturday
A dearth of fun Federations to dig into led me to this “Just Listed” property on the fancy corner of Elizabeth and Windsor Streets in prime Paddington. My real estate recall reminds me that the Windsor Pub (the erstwhile home to AFL games and the older Paddington populace) was sold sometime around 2008 to an Eastern Suburbs local who wanted to turn the vaguely fascinating structure into a private home. Looks like he only got half way. Now listed by Gary Sands and Jane Schumann of Di Jones, 72 Windsor Street offers the prospective buyer a pool, home gym, cinema, and multiple parking. What it doesn’t offer? The actual house itself. According to broker babble, “all the hard work has been done.” The pictures beg to differ.
Once this home is built, though, it will definitely be one of Paddington’s largest holdings. But seeing that they want something around the $5m mark just for the plot of land, it better be one of the best homes in the suburb.
The listing: 72 Windsor St, Paddington
