This landmark local residence, once owned by a scandalous Sydney socialite, is set to make jaws drop at its first open this weekend.
A double fronted Federation, 56-58 Spofforth St is a five-bedroom, four-bathroom home, set on almost 700sqm.
The five-bedroom home, once famous for scandalous parties, goes to auction on April 9.
“The property was originally two semi-detached houses converted into one gigantic residence,” listing agent David Murphy told Mosman Collective this week.
“As soon as you walk through the front door you can feel its great vibe.”
Originally owned by George Hayim, also known as the “Duchess of Cremorne”, 56-58 Spofforth St was a notorious party house before his death in 2011.
“As soon as you walk through the door you can feel the great vibe,” David Murphy says.
“George was a flamboyant and outrageous local identity who loved nothing more than roaming the streets in his pyjamas or underpants,” Mr Murphy said.
“He also entertained some of the world’s biggest stars at his home.
“Neighbours can tell you stories about the time Brigitte Bardot, or David Niven, or Naomi Watts popped around for a crazy party.”
