TweetFacebook House of the Week | 44 Hillcrest Parade, HighfieldsTo many Highfields residents“The Knoll” in Hillcrest Parade, as it is affectionately referred to, is well known.

Most outsiders though will not have heard of the quiet cul-de-sac which enjoys an elevatedand sought-after position with expansive views across Glenrock State Reserve and the Pacific Ocean.

Properties rarely come to market there, where a handful of tightly held houses built in the 1950s and 60s ring a central park.

Dalton Partners duo Scott Purnell and Joanna Cook are marketing the family home of the late Terence Doran, which he built at No.44 in 1968.

Terence was the eldest of seven brothers who joined their father Vincent’s building business, which became known as Doran Constructions.

They built many prominent buildings in Newcastle, including the city’s cultural centre overlooking Civic Park, the Newcastle Permanent offices in King Street, the University of Newcastle’s Great Hall and many churches in the region.

Terence capitalised on the view when he built in Hillcrest Parade and daughter Bronwyn Mascord said it had been “a very special spot” growing up.

“The location is just so peaceful and you have an ever changing view of the ocean,” Bronwyn said.

“The Knoll itself, where the house is positioned, is very private. You’re very close to the highway and very close to the shopping centres but it’s removed enough that you really feel as though you’re in the bush.”

The home on 657 square metres of landis being sold with a $1 million guide.

“It’s just a unique, special location that attracted most local doctors and medicos when it was first settled,” Mr Purnell said.

“This is one of only a few properties that look down into the valley of Glenrock and out toward the Pacific Ocean.

“Highfields in itself is tightly held but this knoll position is extremely tightly held and it’s really about this unique piece of land.”

It has its first inspection scheduled for Saturdayat 10am.
