EXQUISITE LANDMARK RESIDENCE IN RIVER PRECINCT - 'Cooringa' Built 1897
'Cooringa' was originally built in 1897 and is one of the few original riverside Claremont residences. This 120 year old, grand two storey 5/6 bedroom residence is the epitome of a modern day classic.
The home was completely restored and extended and now offers the finest in contemporary family living whilst still maintaining the glorious originality of its era.

Murano glass chandeliers in the formal lounge and adjoining music/reading room, wool carpets, gas fireplaces, built in timber cabinetry for the audio visual items and silk curtains bring warmth and style.
The Caesarstone kitchen has a full suite of Gaggenau appliances including double ovens, gas cooktop, rangehood and Miele dishwasher. Surrounded by loads of storage behind gloss cabinetry. It is the hub of the home, interconnecting with meals/family and grand dining area with access to the alfresco area.
