Set exclusively in the heart of Mosman, only moments to Bridgepoint and City buses, this delightful Federation semi, boasting house-like dimensions, has been elegantly updated for contemporary living whilst preserving its period details.
The home is so impressive it is featured on the front cover of this months Home Beautiful " Before and After" magazine.
Crafted to take full advantage of its North-East aspect and exquisitely finished throughout, this fully renovated home features two distinct living zones with a formal lounge plus a separate open plan kitchen/ family area. Designed to embrace the outdoors, glass-framed interiors and high timber-lined ceilings add to the sense of space and open seamlessly to deep limewashed decking and a garden oasis with luscious lawn and abundant natural sunlight. With the seamless indoor/outdoor flow it is perfect for entertaining family and friends year-round.
This is a happy marriage of old and new, loaded with style and character. Quite exquisite and beautifully presented, the light-filled interiors combine a fresh contemporary style of limewashed floorboards and travertine tiling in contrast to the original period features of soaring ornate ceilings, picture rails, ceiling roses and two working fireplaces.
There are three well scaled bedrooms with floor to ceiling built-in wardrobes offering ample storage space.
The renovated bathroom comes complete with a Carrara marble vanity bench with custom made joinery, a Laufen wall-slung toilet, heated towel rail and heat lamp plus a full-sized bath with a frameless glass screen, rain shower rose and separate hand held shower.
An effective and practical floorplan lends itself to contemporary living and focuses on the expansive dining and interacting kitchen at the rear. The striking Hamptons style kitchen is pivotal to the home and comes with a modern twist. It features limewashed American oak cabinetry with dovetail joints, complemented by a large Luciente marble island bench and benchtops, dramatic white Spanish hand made tiled splashbacks and a clever tongue and groove timber ceiling.
The dramatic over bench pendant lighting, imported from London along with the faucet tap from the English tapware company, is stunning. Designed for the creative cook, the kitchen offers a 900mm width six burner Smeg gas stove, Miele dishwasher, Smeg stainless steel double door fridge and freezer, integrated double rubbish bins, soft close drawers plus plenty of cupboards and work top space. Breakfast at the bench or outside on the terrace – take your pick.
Glass stacker doors lead to the covered alfresco dining space with its quiet North East-facing garden and tranquil child-friendly lawns. External built-in Hamptons style cabinetry with stainless steel bench tops offer convenient housing for a portable BBQ and outdoor items plus there is a handy outdoor sink.
The well -defined interiors flowing across one easy level are ideal for the family with children or the downsizer looking for an entertainer.
A formal lounge with soaring patterned ceilings, original fireplace and split-system air- conditioning offers a separate space for entertaining or to relax in during the winter months. It comes complete with a wall-mounted Sony plasma tv and Bose surround sound system. Centrepiece to this room of course is the captivating Sara chandelier imported from USA which consists of 13 beautiful blue tapered hurricanes distributed in three levels over tiers of metal.
Additional features to the home include a European laundry cleverly hidden in the kitchen bench complete with a front loading washing machine and dryer, expansive loft storage, fully lined and with power plus of course undercover parking.

It’s just a hop, skip and jump to the optometrist, physiotherapist, cardiologist, chemist, podiatrist, bank and newsagency plus of course the supermarket, fruit market, fishmonger, baker and butcher to name just a few! Throw away the car keys and enjoy the short stroll to buy your day to day essentials or attend appointments.
