16 PARKHILL AVENUE, LEUMEAH NSW 2560 IS A UNIQUE, ONE-OF-A-KIND SLICE OF AUSTRALIAN HISTORY IS NOW RELEASED TO THE MARKETPLACE, FOR RESIDING IN, LAND-HOLDINGS OR CONSIDER DEVELOPMENT POTENTIAL (Subject to Council Approval) ON THIS R2 ZONED BLOCK.
Situated on the corner, graced by 2-street frontages and connected to major arterial road networks, this beautiful 1940’s war-era family home, was once part of a 130-acre allotment and has been in the family since it was built. The location is an important part of Macarthur history and is strategically positioned for potential development (STCA), within the region.
The improvement of the land consists of a comfortable and spacious dwelling, featuring 2 bedrooms, with one being used currently as a study and the potential to turn the formal dining into a third bedroom, 2 bathrooms, 2 covered car spaces and character and features throughout, including high ceilings and ornate cornices, as you’d expect from a solid home of this vintage.
The living options are numerous, including formal loungeroom, breakfast room, formal dining room and 2-sitting areas. There is space for parking underneath the home or potentially renovate this, area into more bedrooms / living spaces (STCA).
The kitchen is Galley-style, with stainless steel OMEGA appliances, dishwasher, in-wall oven and a Butler’s walk-in corner pantry. There’s an expandable, concealed bench-top for even more working space and updated cupboards with LED-light glass in some doors.
The loungeroom has a working open fireplace with brick hearth, new grate, copper hood and mantlepiece which adds to the special ambience of the home. The walls have recently been installed with solid Cedar panelling and has brass fittings for the light switches and power-points. The floor is genuine Jarrah timber.
The barn-style double front door entry is quaint and leads to the sitting rooms, which skirt two sides of the home and features a sloping roofline. Here there are wall-to-wall windows, allowing plenty of natural light to come flooding through, sitting atop the ornate wall panelling, evoking the sense of an era that harks back to yester-year.
The formal dining has hard timber flooring, large window and high ceilings. The doorway leads you to the rear vestibule or breakfast room, which leads you back through to the kitchen.
As far as bedrooms go, nothing will compare to the extraordinary size of the master bedroom. Again, high ceilings and ornate cornices with plenty of light makes this feel like a lifestyle room for more than just sleeping in. There is a Creche Room which could easily become a walk-in robe and the en-suite is found next, also generously sized, with its classic décor, corner shower and bath.
Outside leads to parking under the dwelling for at least 2 cars and space for a workshop. A second bathroom with separate toilet is also found under the stairs at the rear of this private property, with ornate tap-fittings and clawfoot bath. The rear of the property is set amongst mature gardens and hedges. And there’s more,… a wine cellar or tool room, which completes this amazingly spacious family home.
Despite the incredible history and a rare glance into a by-gone era with modern conveniences, the astute investor / developer will notice the potential here on this R2 zoned block in the heart of Leumeah (STCA) and will know instantly when timing and opportunity presents itself.

Leumeah sits north of Campbelltown, which gets its name from Elizabeth Campbell, the wife of former Governor of New South Wales Lachlan Macquarie. Originally called Campbell-Town, the name was later simplified to the current Campbelltown. Campbelltown was presented with its own Coat of Arms in 1969, based on the Arms of the Campbell Family in Scotland.
In 1887 Leumeah railway station was built, originally it was named ‘Holly Lea’ after the property of a local politician but the name eventually was changed to Leumeah, in 1969.
Situated in the fast-growing Macarthur district, Campbelltown now boasts some of the largest shopping centres outside Sydney, with all major facilities to support growing families.
The region is now a significant hub for South Western Sydney with a direct rail line and highway, major hospital, university and several shopping centres and is only 58km from Wollongong’s beaches and 232km to Canberra.
