A lower north shore “bolt hole” used as a city escape for a well-known NSW farming family is on the market for the first time in its history.
Purchased off the plan for £11,750 in 1962, the immaculate two-bedroom apartment on Cremorne Point has never been tenanted and sits vacant for seven months of the year, despite boasting a world class location and grandstand views of Sydney Harbour.
With two bedrooms, a stunning balcony and lift access, the immaculate apartment is attracting huge attention, says David Murphy.
Chris and Jan Carter told Mosman Collective five generations of their family have stayed “intermittently” at 5B/30 Milson Rd, with the open plan unit still as meticulous as it was when brand new.
“The flat looks as good as it did on the day my Grandfather turned the key on the front door,” Mr Carter said.
“He bought it as a place to enjoy in his twilight years and wanted to hand it down through the generations.
“We’ve been very lucky to have the apartment in our family for 61 years.”
Five generations of the Carter family from Gunnedah in north west NSW have holidayed in their Cremorne Point “bolt hole”.
Patriarch Percival Vincent (known as P.V) Carter fell in love with Cremorne Point when he left his 12,500-acre Gunnedah property, but he was no stranger to the lower north shore.
His father, Harry, a former Mayor of Mosman, was instrumental in the beautification of Balmoral Beach, and officially opened The Esplanade in August 1927.
