Here, in the northern parts of Mosman, with views the length of Middle Harbour comes a home that represents style and sophistication through simplicity.

The multi-level, 4-bedroom, 5-bathroom, 2-car garage home — that boasts over 700sqm of living space — highlights its perfect positioning through intelligent design at the hands of Gelder Architects.

Inside, expect the contemporary design coupled with screens and frameless pull back glass doors to lead the eye towards those aforementioned views across the home’s three-level — all of which are linked via a lift.

Technology is at the forefront of the design, with entertainment and media supporting the functions of lighting, air-conditioning, security and more.

The huge open-plan living area — complete with summer courtyard to the rear — opens to a large entertaining terrace and more views. Also in the open plan living comes the chef’s kitchen — adorned in marble, and fitted with Gaggenau appliances — and butler’s pantry which opens onto the formal living and dining zones also complete with an outdoor terrace.

The middle level of the home sees the majority of the bedrooms, with three found here all with ensuites — two of which enjoy terrace access — while a fourth bedroom with ensuite is found on the home’s upper level.

The home’s lower level features a climate-controlled wine cellar behind a rumpus room that flows outdoors to the heated infinity pool.

Here, the garden — designed by Marcia Hosking — leads towards a deepwater jetty, deep water jetty, pontoon and mooring pen.

Headlining the long list of luxurious additions to the home is the reconfigured boathouse that now sees a kitchenette, bathroom and day bed and features a corrugated sliding door, timber interiors, a fireplace and luxurious details such as handles on cupboards sourced from Murray River blue gum stumps.

The home is listed with Richard Simeon (+61 411 499 906), of Simeon Partners and has a $23 million price guide. Simeonpartners.com.au

The ball is in the buyer’s court with this knockdown/rebuild opportunity

Glenhaven in Sydney’s Hills District is one of those areas that locals tend to keep to themselves. Leafy with large blocks on offer, the suburb takes its name from its valley location, with the northern end originally known as the Glen and the southern end called the Haven. 

En route from Parramatta to the Hunter, Glenhaven has become an ideal place for growing families in search of a little more space, or even room to house several generations under one roof.

The challenge is finding properties that tick all the right boxes.

As demand for trades and supply chain issues continue to ease, now could be the right time for a knockdown/rebuild project for would-be buyers looking to create their dream home.

Fairmont Homes specialises in knockdown/rebuild projects in Sydney. General manager at Fairmont Homes, Daniel Logue, said there are key features to look for when choosing a knockdown/rebuild site.

“The key items we look for are the site falling to the street, not to the rear, to help with stormwater drainage as well as access to the site,” he said. “Neighbouring property front setbacks are also important. In some older areas, the older houses are set closer to the street, meaning your new home will have to be set to suit.

“Value for money and the return on the end sale price of the home is another issue.”

If possible, he said designing a home that meets the criteria of the Complying Development legislation will speed up approvals considerably.

While suitable knockdown/rebuild sites can be hard to find in Glenhaven, there are still hidden opportunities if you know where to look.

One block at 158 Gilbert Road, Glenhaven is ideally suited for rejuvenation. With almost 850sqm to play with, it slopes down to the street and sits between neighbouring properties that have already been stylishly updated.

 

 

An existing basketball court at the rear could provide the perfect teen backdrop to a family home, or it could make way for a larger house with landscaped gardens and pool. Alternatively, it could be the perfect position for a cabana or granny flat to serve as in-law accommodation or a source of secondary income.

With recent sales of completed homes in nearby streets reaching well above $5 million, it’s a great opportunity to make a slam dunk of a buy into one of Sydney’s best kept secrets.
