House of the Week: Big Money Sought For Landmark Mosman Estate
He is one of Australia’s best performing real estate agents, who specialises in local prestige property. This week, McGrath’s Michael Coombs gives us exclusive access to a landmark Mosman estate, hidden away on a vast parcel of prime land.
A new generation of affluent local buyers is driving the Mosman property market, with a number of young families looking to secure luxury homes, over the 10-million-dollar mark.
Prestige agent Michael Coombs this week continued his explosive start to the year, listing a spectacular estate that ticks all the boxes – and more.
Tucked away down a private drive, 14a Lennox St, Mosman, is a hidden sanctuary set on a whopping 3000sqm of manicured gardens.
“It truly is one of the most stylish homes we’ve ever had the opportunity of presenting,” Michael tells Mosman Collective.
“We’ve had strong interest from Mosman families, and I don’t expect it to stay on the market for very long.
“Properties of this standard are a rarity, and local buyers appreciate that,” he said.
“Somers” is a north facing, Susan Rothwell designed masterpiece, offering seamless indoor/outdoor living and entertaining.
With six bedrooms, five bathrooms, a championship sized tennis court and stunning swimming pool, this Hamptons style beauty is a landmark property, perfect for a growing family.
“It is wonderfully private and there is vast space for children to play,” Michael said.
“The estate is so quiet – and when you visit, it doesn’t feel like you’re in Mosman at all.
“You could be forgiven for thinking you’re in Bowral, or the Hunter Valley – it’s absolutely spectacular in every way.”
Recently, the house was completely refurbished by interior designer Alexandra Kidd.
It boasts an understated, neutral palate, American Oak flooring and a liveable floor plan.
“There are French doors and windows that invite an abundance of light, which is something Susan Rothwell is renowned for,” Michael said.
“The house itself is north facing and the deep terraces are perfect for entertaining on a large scale.
“And if that isn’t enough, there’s even extra room for guests.”
Michael says “Somers” not only features an entry level suite that comes with its own balcony and bathroom – but Au-Pair accommodation too.
“There is a self contained one bedroom apartment downstairs, which is beyond perfect if you are a family with a Nanny or Au-Pair,” Michael says.
“It has its own living space and bathroom so it’s completely private.
“And, if the new owner doesn’t have live in staff, it would also suit visiting friends or family.
“But a word of warning – once they put their suitcases down for the weekend, they might not ever want to leave,” he laughs.
14a Lennox St is on the market now, with a $13 million price expectation.
