It’s the Hollywood home playing a starring role high above Clifton Gardens.

This celebrated and unrivalled family estate goes to auction this week, after setting Sydney hearts on fire with its palatial opulence, rarely seen in Australia.

Built in 1936 in the Spanish Mission style by architect Allan Edgecliff Stafford, 26 Morella Rd, Mosman is a six bedroom Mediterranean masterpiece, set on park like grounds of 1,672 square metres.

“It is one of the great estates of Australia, inspired by the golden era of Hollywood, when the biggest movie stars in the world favoured this type of home,” listing agent Tim Foote, from Belle Property Mosman says.

Calling it “a feast for the senses”, Mr Foote says the property blends the classic features of a grand Spanish villa with Hollywood style opulence that has to be seen to be believed.

“The home boasts the grandest of proportions, with a double height entry foyer, original Spanish tiles and timber floors,” he says.

“It is a landmark holding in Clifton Gardens and is one of the most significant properties to come to market this year.”

Multiple indoor and outdoor living, together with Peter Fudge designed gardens and huge poolside entertainment spaces, make the property the perfect “once in a generation” family home.

“The grounds surrounding the house are large enough for kids to hold a full-scale footy match,” Mr. Foote says, “it’s the home you move into today and don’t leave for the next 40 years.”

North facing rooms, most enjoying harbour vistas, are another big tick for cashed up buyers hoping to secure the home when it goes to auction on Tuesday 4 May.

Four separate living and dining spaces ensure there is space for everyone, along with alfresco entertaining boasting an outdoor kitchen and pizza oven.

“There is nowhere better to be during summer,” Mr Foote says, “infact, there’s nowhere better to be year-round.”

Other features include a 500-bottle wine cellar, high end security, sandstone fireplaces, luxury guest accommodation and of course a magical view over Sydney Harbour.

Auction Tuesday 4 May.
