Set across an expansive 1863sqm plot in the highly sought-after Sydney suburb of Mosman, 13A Elfrida Street also known as ‘Land House’ presents a family haven by renowned architect Peter Stutchbury.

The three-storey, 5-bedroom, 3-bathroom, 2-car garage residence is located on a private battle-axe block and utilises the combination of timber – including cedar, birch, turpentine – steel, concrete and glass to stylish, industrial effect.

The first floor contains the open plan living, dining and kitchen area punctuated by a neck-creasing void further elevating the space. Here, the kitchen sees an industrial, stainless steel workspace and bespoke timber cabinetry while the living area is fitted with a fireplace.

The interplay between the glass windows and adjustable cedar shutters, offers a unique sense of the outdoors in a modernised plantation reference. Also featured are polished concrete floors with underfloor heating while cooling ceiling fans and nuanced lighting prove comfortable fixtures.

Elsewhere on the first floor is the covered outdoor entertaining area – making use of the home’s north-east aspect – with a self-cleaning magnesium swimming pool, complete with motorised pool cover and a tennis court that doubles as half a basketball court.

Upstairs the top floor sees the master suite with ensuite complete with stand-alone bath and steam shower along with a further two bedrooms, each complete with their own ensuites.

A further two bedrooms land on the lower level, alongside a storeroom, casual living, entertainment and gym with its own bathroom.

 It’s also here that you’ll find a water tank – one of the home’s many green initiatives – along with rooftop solar panels, ensuring the home doesn’t disrupt its natural surrounds.

Land House is less than 10km to Sydney’s CBD, closer to Balmoral Beach, and within walking distance of Mosman’s dining options on Military road.

The listing is with LJ Hooker Avnu’s Michael Coombs (+61 407 980 443) and Bo Zhang (+61 406 213 775). Price guide $16m.
