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.


Chris Dixon, a partner who led the charge, says he has a ‘very long-term horizon’

Americans now think they need at least $1.25 million for retirement, a 20% increase from a year ago, according to a survey by Northwestern Mutual
