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.

Amid looming rate rises, there are reasons to be cheerful as mortgage holders head into 2023

Mortgage holders should brace themselves for more pain as the Reserve Bank of Australia board prepares to meet this afternoon for the first time this year.

Most economists and the major banks are predicting a rise of 25 basis points will be announced, although the Commonwealth Bank suggested yesterday that the RBA may take the unusual step of a 40 basis point rise to bring the interest rate up to a more conventional 3.5 percent. This could present the RBA with the chance to put further rate rises on hold for the next few months as it assesses the impact of tightening monetary policy on the economy.

The decision by the RBA board to make consecutive rate rises since April last year is an attempt to wrestle inflation down to a more manageable 3 or 4 percent. The Australian Bureau of Statistics reports that the inflation rate rose to 7.8 percent over the 2022 December quarter, the highest it has been since 1990, reflected in higher prices for food, fuel and construction.

Higher interest rates have coincided with falling home values, which Ray White chief economist Nerida Conisbee says are down 6.1 percent in capital cities since peaking in March 2022. The pain has been greatest in Sydney, where prices have dropped 10.8 percent since February last year. Melbourne and Canberra recorded similar, albeit smaller falls, while capitals like Adelaide, which saw property prices fall 1.8 percent, are less affected.

Although prices may continue to decline, Ms Conisbee (below) said there are signs the pace is slowing and that inflation has peaked.

“December inflation came in at 7.8 per cent with construction, travel and electricity costs being the biggest drivers. It is likely that we are now at peak,” Ms Conisbee said. 

“Many of the drivers of high prices are starting to be resolved. Shipping costs are now down almost 90 per cent from their October 2021 peak (as measured by the Baltic Dry Index), while crude oil prices have almost halved from March 2022. China is back open and international migration has started up again. 

“Even construction costs look like they are close to plateau. Importantly, US inflation has pulled back from its peak of 9.1 per cent in June to 6.5 per cent in December, with many of the drivers of inflation in this country similar to Australia.”
