House of the Week: Location, location, location! You won’t find a better spot in Mosman.
By ANNA USHER
If it’s style, convenience, views, and heritage features you’re after, put 12 Keston Ave Mosman on your inspection list.
The commanding Federation property located just 200m from Mosman village is the talk of the town this week – and not just because it’s a drop-dead gorgeous family home.
The five-bedroom residence sits on a rare and prized parcel of land.
A whopping 750 square metres, to be exact.
This remarkable feature has attracted buyers from all over Sydney searching for a luxury home with vast proportions in a secure and whisper-quiet street.
“Homes like this one don’t come to market often, and when they do, there’s a lot of interest because it offers everything and more,” Richard Simeon said this week.
“Not only is it a grand Federation residence with heritage details, but it also boasts city views on a vast block of land, literally footsteps from Mosman village.
“We just don’t see properties like 12 Keston Ave very often; they’re as rare as hens’ teeth.”
From the moment you arrive in the tucked away – almost forgotten – street between Belmont and Avenue roads, you know you’re in a unique neck of the woods.
“And when you see the house for the first time, you know immediately that this could be your long-term family dream home,” Mr Simeon says.
High ornate ceilings, period features, picture rails and marble fireplaces all combine to deliver the charm and elegance of a bygone era.
With a wonderfully flexible floor plan, there are five bedrooms, a separate fully fitted home office and the most spacious living and dining areas.
“The open plan living zone is at the hub of the house, with a huge kitchen, butler’s pantry or utility room and full-width living and dining room, which all open onto a generous entertaining terrace,” Mr Simeon says.
The stunning terrace looks out to a heated 13m pool, and the secure north-west facing landscaped gardens are a dream, with a level lawn highlighting the appeal of living on 750sqm.
“On the ground floor, there’s a charming fully fitted home office and a superb bedroom, which could also make a grand formal living room,” Mr Simeon says.
“The original staircase leads you to two oversized bedrooms which open to an outdoor covered terrace, and both enjoy district views stretching to the eastern suburbs.
“The spacious master suite with ensuite and walk-in-robe boasts iconic views across to the CBD and Sydney Harbour Bridge.”
Complete with a double lock-up garage from Belmont Lane, 12 Keston Ave is set in a peaceful, private and premier enclave just around the corner from the beating heart of Mosman Village, with its fine selection of shops, cafes and restaurants.
