Historic Workers Dwellings listed for sale in Millers Point

Property NSW, on behalf of Family and Community Services, has listed for sale the historic Workers Dwellings in Millers Point, the proceeds of which will be used for reinvestment in social housing across New South Wales.

Located between 30 Lower Fort Street and 4 Trinity Avenue, the 33 apartments are a lasting example of early colonial housing and mark the most number of apartments listed for sale at one time in the Millers Point Sales program.

Built by the Sydney Harbour Trust in circa 1910, the three storey apartments housed wharf labourers, storemen, stevedores and gasworks hands who needed to live close to their place of employment.

The historic buildings are for sale via EOI/tender and will be offered in one line, comprising 33 apartments, (Lot 1), or alternately as four separate lots as outlined below:

  • Lot 2 - 9 Apartments
  • Lot 3 - 6 apartments
  • Lot 4 - 6 apartments
  • Lot 5 - 12 apartments

The properties will be marketed by McGrath Estate Agents, with EOIs closing at 9am on June 22, 2017.

So far, proceeds from the Millers Point sales program have delivered over $390 million to fund new social housing dwellings.

Conservation Management Plans (CMPs) endorsed by the NSW Heritage Council are included in contracts for sale for all heritage listed properties.  These contracts ensure new property owners are fully informed of their responsibilities when purchasing a heritage listed property.
