This circa 1905 home at 36 Somerset St, Mosman, feels like a country estate in the city.


“An elegant Southern Highlands getaway in a prestige pocket of Mosman”, is how Richard Simeon describes 36 Somerset St, a grand five-bedroom Federation estate built in 1905 that’s ticking all the boxes for local buyers looking to upgrade.

Set back from the street and behind expansive Peter Fudge designed gardens, the vast home combines contemporary design with country charm, offering vast formal and casual entertaining zones designed to celebrate family life.

Vast formal areas including this elegant dining room with fireplace have been lovingly maintained.

“It has a wonderfully flexible floor plan for busy parents and kids, with copious amounts of space for everyone,” Mr Simeon told Mosman Collective.

“The residence itself is one of Mosman’s finest, with soaring three-metre ceilings, original open fireplaces and period detailing that has been lovingly preserved.

“It’s a meticulous home of the very highest quality.”

A formal lounge leads to an undercover terrace and BBQ area.

The terrace is the perfect place to watch the sunset, Mr Simeon says.

An expansive marble kitchen with Miele appliances connects to the casual living room, all opening onto a huge entertaining terrace with a prized northeast aspect overlooking level lawn, mature gardens, and heated pool.

Boasting five bedrooms in all, the master features an open fireplace, private dressing room, full bathroom, and a private balcony with district views to North Sydney.

“The main bedroom is a true escape that’s been beautifully designed to become a stand-out feature of the home,” Mr Simeon said.

Set on 556 sqm, the Somerset St property offers a bonus for parents with older children, thanks to a sumptuous, separate self-contained studio above the home’s two car garage.

A modern marble kitchen is fitted with Miele appliances.

The home boasts a stunning heated swimming pool, perfect for family living.

“It’s completely separate from the main house and just perfect as a home office, or as accommodation for teenagers or young adults,” Mr Simeon said.

“The studio has its own kitchen and bathroom so it could even be rented out to tenants.”

Peter Fudge landscaped gardens are a stand out, glorious feature of 36 Somerset St.

Enviably positioned within a brief stroll to Mosman Wharf and just 800m to shops, cafes and bus transport, 36 Somerset St is modern federation elegance, and the pinnacle of family living with entertaining bliss.
