Home of the Week: Good Things Come in Small Packages
THIS WEEK, WE OPEN THE DOORS TO ONE OF MOSMAN'S FINEST SEMI-DETACHED HOMES, LOCATED IN A SOUGHT AFTER HERITAGE LOCATION. RECORD BREAKING SALES AGENT SCOTT THORNTON, FROM "THE AGENCY", SAYS HIS STUNNING NEW LISTING IS ALREADY ATTRACTING SCORES OF KEEN BUYERS, AFTER ONLY A FEW DAYS ON THE MARKET. ANNA USHER REPORTS.
Look beyond the picture-perfect façade of this immaculate Mosman semi, and you’ll find a prized home of history, elegance and space.
Featuring a striking blend of Federation appeal and modern functionality, the double brick beauty at 46a Spencer Rd, is one of the prettiest homes on the popular street, attracting huge interest from buyers, after just a few days on the market.
Property Partner Scott Thornton, from The Agency, says the idyllic north facing, tree-lined setting is in one of Mosman’s highly sought-after pockets, and a rare opportunity for easy care living.
“Spencer road has become much more tightly held in recent times and the lifestyle offered in this location is second-to-none,” he tells Mosman Collective.
“It is positioned within easy reach of Mosman village and the Cremorne shops, with Memory Park at the bottom of the street.
“And from Spencer Rd, parents can walk their kids to any of the local schools that are nearby."
Reconfigured and renovated throughout, the home at 46a Spencer Rd boasts dual living spaces, two bathrooms and three double bedrooms, including a whole-floor parents retreat.
“The layout is very clever,” Scott says, “and buyers have been impressed with the upstairs area designed for adults, with its own ensuite - and a balcony with beautiful district views.”
The Agency, led by Scott with partner Rob Jacobs and Megan Thomas, have enjoyed a strong start to the year, with their premium listings delivering spectacular results including some off market sales.
“For us, the local market is showing no signs of slowing down,” Scott says.
“There are plenty of buyers who love this area and want to make Mosman their home. It is very much an aspirational suburb and always in demand.
“And semi-detached homes of this quality are always popular for young families, executive couples, or downsizers.”

Scott says 46a Spencer Rd, has all the hallmarks of its early 1900’s history, with high ceilings, original fireplaces and timber floors, only enhancing the “oversized living proportions” of the stylish space.
Downstairs living and dining offers a generous open plan, with a classy granite kitchen fitted with a stainless-steel oven and a large deck leading to private gardens.
“We are also fielding a lot of interest from retirees looking to downsize, who love that 46a Spencer Rd is a ‘lock up and leave’ property,” Scott said.
“It is incredibly private and very secure, located on one of the loveliest streets in Mosman.
“Spencer Rd is one of those gorgeous heritage pockets, with an established green canopy of trees that is stunning all year round.
“The neighbourhood is incredibly friendly, with residents known for being very house proud.”
