Media advocate Page Henty’s Vaucluse home is like being on a beach or bush holiday

Owned by a prominent media lawyer, this incredible home offers a lifestyle akin to staying permanently on a beach or forest vacation.

A perfect match at first glance, this house in the Vaucluse was a perfect match for the current owners when they bought it in 2012.

Along with her family, Page Henty, a media lawyer who has worked internally at Channel 10, Austar and RACAT Group, loved the Olola Ave home as they discovered it ten years ago.

“That was a big reason for buying it, that we didn’t have to change anything,” she says.

“It’s modern and I think it’s a really good design.

“It is very quiet and peaceful.

“Once you get home from the office, it’s like being on a beach or bush holiday.

“It was always nice to have; when everyone left for beach destinations or outdoor retreats, we never felt we needed, or wanted, to leave.”

The hacienda-inspired house on a 614 sqm block is tucked behind established gardens with a smart footprint that wraps around a large central courtyard.

Each room on the lower level opens out to the outdoor space, including living areas and the family-friendly kitchen.

Meals can be enjoyed in the dining room or in the outdoor area.

This ground floor area has a living room with fireplace, family room, separate study with balcony, guest bedroom with ensuite, laundry room and powder room.

Upstairs are three further bedrooms, the master bedroom has an ensuite and a balcony, plus two more with a shared bathroom.

“There are two large living areas, which was ideal as it meant the kids could be with their friends in one and my husband and I could watch TV in peace in the other,” Henty says.

“It worked well for a family with two teenage children.”

Those two guys are now playing college basketball in the United States, so it’s time for the pair to make a change.

The house is opposite Vaucluse House Park, surrounded by beautiful stately homes and leafy streets, just a short stroll from harbor beaches and parks such as Beach Paddock and Nielsen Park.

Henty, whose father Robert Henty was a former director of ACP Publishing and cousin to Kerry Packer, says she has an affinity for the peninsula after growing up in Watsons Bay.

“The view, the feeling of being in nature, the birds and the parks all around – it just feels like my place to be.”

The property is listed by Harriet France of Sotheby’s with a price guide of $8 million, and was last traded for $3.32 million in 2012, according to records.
