An extremely rare landholding of more than 3,000sqm with a wide frontage to Sydney Harbour, this absolute beachfront trophy estate occupies a compelling position embracing the foreshores and showcasing magnificent unobstructed views over Rose Bay to the city skyline and Sydney Harbour Bridge.
The property is secluded from the road via a welcoming leafy driveway with direct access to the sandy shores of Rose Bay Beach. It provides dynamic scope to potentially create a significant compound unencumbered by heritage restrictions. The estate size could only otherwise be attainable by purchasing multiple properties.
There is no understating the views from this extraordinary estate. The home sits wide to the view resulting in a perspective where the panoramic aspect captures Sydney in all its glory - day and night - and including the Sydney Harbour Bridge. There is, quite simply, nothing else like it.
The existing dwelling is of significant proportion and further enhanced by its secluded setting on landscaped grounds and gardens including a tennis court, swimming pool and tree-lined driveway to generous parking. However, the inherent value is in the scale and position of the land which allows the option of creating a 21st century refined harbourside residence or family compound.
The property resides in a prestigious enclave with close proximity to Rose Bay village, harbour walks, parks, city ferries and a choice of schools regarded as among Sydney’s finest. The area boasts some of the most sought-after real estate - not only in Australia, but anywhere in the world, and this estate is destined to prove no exception.
