For those who fall under its spell, this home is both as unique as it is beautiful, an almost serendipitous opportunity for anyone looking for something better, not just bigger.
Evocative of the Mediterranean dream many desire until reality bites, one languid lunch on the terrace will refresh such memories.
From first sight of this home in its private and elevated location when, even before entering the front gate, the magic begins. Even the mailbox is a delight.
Enter the foyer through the double 19th century doors and the home's palpable charm may stir another fond memory - the warmth and comfort of a traditional home. From here, every head turn reveals sublime details and of seamless cohesion rarely found in the soulless square set architecture of today.
Disposed over three levels, the home was fully rebuilt and finished four years ago. Building on four generations spanning forty years, this accumulated experience is evident in its design and execution. As perfect for a single person desirous of space as for a couple, a young family and then to later life living (by virtue of a discretely concealed lift), it fits almost any lifestyle.
Splendid views from most rooms arc from the bay below, the expanse of northern Middle Harbour and sweeping horizon from the Northern Suburbs across to Frenchs Forest and beyond.
A true cook's kitchen to which all gravitate, the living rooms to the colonnades, terraces and pool area, it is made for indoor and outdoor enjoyment. Every centimetre of its 409sqm has been utilised to maximum benefit.
One of only three properties owning the privately owned cul-de-sac, it is minutes from to Mosman, Balmoral Beach, The Spit, Cremorne Junction, Neutral Bay, Cammeray, and enviably, easy and most beautiful access to the city and distributors without obstruction. For dog lovers, Primrose Park is one of the happiest places on Earth and the western Spit, a water dog's idea of Heaven.
The inclusions detailed below demonstrate this home is a sublime marriage of functional design, its environment and amenities in a very special home in an equally special enclave of Sydney.
One viewing may not be enough to take it in. Come again.
