The house at 34 Barons Crescent Hunters Hill was designed by Architect and Artist Lindsay Sever. It featured on the cover of House and Garden magazine in 1954. Current owners plan to demolish the house, subdivide and build 2 dwellings on the land.
This site links to the remnant bushland that follows the Lane Cove River and contains the Great North Walk. While the house is not heritage listed nor in a designated Conservation Area, it is in a location that has a particular significance to the character of Hunters Hill. The riparian land is significant for bio-diversity.
Foreshore protection zone
The Trust has urged Council to consider the implications of the DA at CAP (Conservation Advisory Panel). We need a Conservation Area declaration in this important bushland, foreshore area of Hunters Hill. DAs along the foreshore protection zone need to be very closely monitored.
