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.

Owning a Home in an LGBTQ-Friendly Area Comes With a Hefty Price Premium

The cost of owning a home in an LGBTQ-friendly area in the U.S. comes with a hefty price premium of almost 50%, according to a report Wednesday from Redfin.

In a metropolitan area with state laws protecting LGBTQ people from housing discrimination, a home buyer needs to earn an annual income of $150,364 to afford a median priced home. That’s 46.8% more than the $102,435 buyers need to earn to afford a home in places without such protections, the online property portal said.

For the purposes of their report, a metro is considered to have protections if the state it’s located in prohibits housing discrimination based on sexual orientation and/or gender identity, Redfin explained. In the case of metro areas which span multiple states, Redfin considered the metro to have protections if at least one of the states it’s located in prohibits such discrimination.

“LGBTQ+ Americans face disproportionately large barriers to homeownership,” said Redfin senior economist Elijah de la Campa in the report. “On top of paying a premium to live somewhere that feels safe, many LGBTQ+ house hunters are earning less than the typical U.S. worker, and face discrimination while shopping for homes despite laws that prohibit it.”

The locales where individuals identifying as LGBTQ make up the largest share of the adult population are also those where housing is the least affordable, the report found.

In San Francisco, where 6.7% of the adult population identifies as LGBTQ—the highest share of any of the 54 metropolitan areas Redfin analyzed—only 5.1% of listings last year were affordable based on the median local income, one of the lowest shares in the country.

In Portland, Oregon, which had the second highest share of LGBTQ adults at 6%, only 6.7% of homes for sale were affordable; in Austin, Texas, where 5.9% of the adult population identifies as LGBTQ, 2.9% of listings were affordable.

And in Seattle and Los Angeles, where LGBTQ adults make up 5.2% and 5.1% of the population, 4.8% and 1.9% of homes for sale were affordable, respectively.

All but one of those top LGBTQ metros—Austin—has state-level protections, the report said.
