Description

Observatory Terrace, MILLERS POINT, THE ROCKS, SYDNEY is an early 1800's two-storey terrace house located in the heart of historic Sydney, right opposite the esteemed Langham Hotel and just beneath Observatory Hill with its breathtaking views over Sydney Harbour, S H Erwin art gallery and the Sydney Observatory. It is also only a 5 minute walk to the central business district, famous Circular Quay and Rocks Districts with renowned weekend markets and is surrounded by Sydney's best restaurants, cafes, wine bars, clubs and pubs.

This fabulous Bohemian house is known as Observatory Terrace.

Carlson Terrace 114, 3 Agar Steps 110 Kent St. and Observatory Terrace are all managed by Karen.

The entrance to Observatory Terrace has been captured by many an artist. It sits under the cool shadows of a 180 year old Moreton Bay Fig tree, on the original steps leading up to the Hill. The house was home to the Astronomer of Sydney in the mid 1800’s and is located within the Carlson Terrace area. In summer the cool shade is offered from the Heritage listed Moreton Bay Fig adjacent to Agar Steps next to the tennis court. Have a cool drink and watch the Ferries sail by.

The Terrace consists of a well equipped kitchen, separate dining and lounge room which has a smart flat-screen television and DVD player.

The bedroom has a quality queen size bed and a balcony overlooking the tennis court managed by The Langham Hotel and available for hire. The second bedroom has a single bed and one king single bed. The bathroom is accessible via the second bedroom. It has stunning, original polished floor boards throughout. All the stairs are original and therefore quite narrow and steep, not really suitable for the less mobile.

The house is ideal for a single person, couple or family of four. Children are welcome to stay, however the standard of furnishing is high and any breakage beyond normal adult wear and tear would need to be accounted for. For an amazing stay in the heart of the history of Sydney, yet with all modern conveniences on your doorstep you can’t go past Observatory Terrace.

Sydney City The Rocks

Very seldom does a place this close to the city 150m happen to be so well placed in a historical centre of a major city.

Westpac Headquarters along with many other major financial and business are located just 150 metres away. With two railway stations within 300 metres Wynyard and Circular Quay and of course the ferries also at Circular Quay car transport is certainly not necessary. Both main shipping terminals Barrangaroo and Circular Quay are within a few hundred metres from Agar Steps.

Whether it be a ferry to the beach at Manly or a business deal happening in the city, this will please either or indeed why not combine business and pleasure.

Not only are there the Historic Pubs, the Lord Nelson micro brewery and of course The Hero of Waterloo known locally as "The Hero" with its attendant ghoul. But of course the renown Fish at The Rocks and Mister Chows Chinese reastaurant 50 metres away.must book at these.

Watch the stars at the Observatory then walk around old Sydney to The Bridge.

Enjoy The Rocks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Location We stayed here for 3 nights and were happy to find the property as advertised. Though small, this property contains everything you need and is in a great location - a short walk around the corner to the Rocks, and about a 20 minute walk to the City Centre and Darling Harbour. The owner was prompt to answer queries, and very informative about the area around the house when we arrived. The interior stairs are pretty narrow and steep which could affect people with mobility issues, but other than that this place is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique Historic Rocks Accommodation. I stayed here for a week, would happily return. Quiet and central to everything in the Rocks, room for myself and two teenage kids, would happily return again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fantastic place to stay! We really enjoyed our stay in this gorgeous, historical house. Perfect for our family of four with plenty of space for everyone and everything we needed. We agree with previous reviews that the beds were super comfortable. Great location for exploring Sydney on foot, and there were really good options for eating out close by. Karen was incredibly helpful and friendly from the time we first enquired about the house until our stay came to an end. We would love to stay again one day. Thanks for everything!
