North Shore Heritage Architecture Pymble

North Shore Heritage Architecture Pymble:  “Covington”

A gem of a project in Pymble, on Sydney’s north shore, has started construction, with the original 1935’s home by a prominent Sydney architects Morrow and Gordon literally untouched.

The current owners are the lucky second owners of the special home, and have inherited the original water colour architectural drawings and specification by the architect.

The home was purpose built for the Mr Herriot Esquire, whose initials are carved in the sandstone fireplace surround.

Built at the time of Sydney’s suburbanisation, with the Sydney Harbour Bridge just opened and depression era work gangs constructing new roads, the areas around Pymble were being converted from orchards to family estates and suburban allotments.

Just a block from the train station, the home reflects the aspirations of domestic life at the time.  The house is one of the first to incorporate garaging with a double garage with internal access.

The home features a fine formal entry, living room and dining room, an original butlers pantry with servant bells, kitchen, laundry, maids room and three separate interior wet area rooms – bathroom, shower and WC.  Hydronic heating powered by a coal boiler is plummed throughout the home with decorative brass grills in the formal rooms and wall mounted heaters in the “back of house” areas.

The home has three bedrooms including one in the attic.
