‘Lang Syne’ stands as one of the great land holdings of Sydney.
It has been an enduring presence on the very point of Tamarama in Sydney’s eastern suburbs for nearly a century, and held by the same family for the past 63 years.
Set across three blocks totalling a level 1,100 square metres, it is one of the largest privately held parcels on the eastern suburbs oceanfront and offers an unmatched opportunity to explore the creation of a truly rare and important Australian home.
It offers spectacular views from the south head of Bondi, across Mackenzies Bay to Tamarama and Bronte, and yet Lang Syne itself is incredibly private – flanked by no other properties and set high above the famous Bondi to Bronte walkway so that, while it has the capacity to feel immersed in all that unfolds below and around it, it remains a secluded sanctuary.
"You’ve got no one looking in on you. No one looking down on you. We’re actually in an urban setting believe it or not, yet it feels like we’re in the country. This is gold.”
Bruce Stafford, renowned Australian architect
