House of the Week: See inside the grand Mosman estate owned by just two families in 70 years.
By ANNA USHER
A landmark Mosman residence is set for a new chapter in its history after being tightly held by just two owners in 70 years.
Surrounded by breath taking gardens, the grand, two storey Federation estate known as “Beyon” is a rare opportunity for lower north shore buyers to secure an elegant home of exceptional quality.
The marquee listing, located at 30 Dalton Rd, is presented by leading local agent Priscilla Ouvrier from Di Jones.
“Homes of this size and stature don’t hit the market very often, and when they do there’s obviously an immense amount of interest,” Ms Ouvrier said.
“Beyon is one of Mosman’s truly classic properties: it is a home of class, beauty and soul.”
North facing and bathed in natural light, Beyon dates to 1910 when it was built as a Manse for the Minister of a local Church.
Last purchased in 1989 for a busy corporate couple searching for the ideal location to raise children, the home has been beautifully transformed and respectfully restored to fit the needs of a 21st Century family, while staying true to the soul of its original architecture.
Sprawling open flow living, dining and entertaining spaces offer a flexible layout for entertaining, flowing seamlessly to Marcia Hosking gardens that envelop the property.
A heated, 12.5m pool and manicured level lawn provides the icing on the cake.
Inside the residence, pressed metal ceilings soar above vast rooms, featuring lead light windows, original fireplaces, and stunning hardwood floors, alongside modern inclusions, like the stunning marble and Miele kitchen at the hub of the home.
Upstairs comprises four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a private family retreat (or fifth bedroom).
“Now that the owners three children have grown up and moved on, they’ve decided it’s time to downsize and pass custody of Beyon to another family,” Ms Ouvrier said.
“Beyon is an intensely private and secure estate, meticulously designed to mix beauty with practical family living, that has been beautifully curated over the years.
“Balmoral beach is a six-minute walk and Bridgepoint shopping centre is a very convenient four minutes away,” Ms Ouvrier says, “public transport is at the end of the street, Queenwood is just down the hill and Mosman Prep is a pleasant bike ride away.
“There is simply no better location on the lower north shore.”
