A “first class” Mosman home is how David Murphy describes 79 Middle Head Rd, a grand Federation residence lovingly restored and renovated for 21st century family living.
The coveted address – on a wide 588 sqm block – hit the market this week and has already received a bullish 110 enquiries, a sign that buyer confidence in this part of the world is again firing on all cylinders.
The residence is set on a wide block of 588sqm as is the “quintessential Mosman home”, says David Murphy.
“There isn’t a lot of top-quality stock which goes to explain the intense level of interest in this property,” Mr Murphy said, “the thing people love about it is that it’s a true family home that you won’t outgrow.”
“The current owners have raised five children there and it’s a big, classic house with all the features family buyers are looking for.”
Called “Rimutaka”, the five-bedroom residence boasts vast casual and formal living space set over three levels, with the ground floor offering the main hub of the home, along with a hotel-style Master suite that serves as an elegant parents retreat.
Five bedrooms, landscaped gardens, vast entertaining space, open plan living and a pool – what’s not to love?
Upstairs you’ll find four more bedrooms, all with balcony access plus a separate study.
“The layout is perfect, with the kids able to enjoy their own space upstairs, away from parents,” Mr Murphy said.
“It is a warm, inviting and elegant property with original marble fireplaces, high ceilings, lead-light windows and polished wooden floors.”
Period features include polished floorboards, marble fireplaces, high ceilings and lead-light windows.
The home’s period features blend seamlessly with its contemporary fittings and fixtures, including a designer kitchen offering bespoke cabinetry, 900mm Falcon oven with concrete bench tops and a hot/cold ZIP tap.
There’s also a wine cellar, gymnasium, games room, a beautiful inground pool and landscaped gardens.
