Torrential rain and flash flooding did nothing to dampen the spirits of Mosman home buyers last weekend when they turned out in droves to inspect 76 Avenue Rd.

More than 30 groups inspected the four-bedroom designer semi ahead of its April 17 auction with local agents Anthony Godson and David Benjafield.

The stunning property has attracted free-standing home buyers thanks to its impressive size and quality renovation by interior designer Sally Rhys Jones.

“Every room has something to offer and for us it’s been the perfect family home,” the owner tells Mosman Collective, “it’s located in the most convenient position while remaining quiet and private.”

Secluded from the street, the home boasts a coveted north-to-rear aspect and is light filled with picture windows, high ceilings and French doors.

Recently renovated, the residence retains its period charm while delivering clever contemporary touches perfect for modern living and busy families.

“The home has been designed for year-round living with formal and casual spaces plus a stunning entertaining deck,” co-agent David Benjafield says, “a real master stroke is the fixed barbecue with outdoor fridges that overlooks a level lawn and landscaped garden.”

The clever layout has two oversized bedrooms downstairs and two more on the upper level, which provide perfect visitor or in-law accommodation according to the owner.

“The upstairs area is a haven for guests or children because it has its own living area that can be used as a study or a rumpus,” she says.

“Everyone in the home has their own personal space and that is something pretty rare to find in an attached home.

“We’ve loved every minute of living here.”
