An incredible parcel of land in one of Mosman’s most dazzling locations goes to auction this week, as a frenzy of local listings continues.

Owned by one family for almost 60 years, 11 Parriwi Rd is ripe for renovation or redevelopment, thanks to its 1,328sqm holding, with a 30.4 metre frontage.

Stefon Bertram from Belle Property Mosman says this property is a “once in a generation” opportunity for buyers.

“The home is set down from the street, sitting flat and forward on a block of land overlooking Rosherville Reserve and Chinamans beach,” he says.

“It’s a hidden gem that few people have known about, until now.

“There is huge scope to create the ultimate lifestyle and capitalise on the remarkable views.”

Inspired by traditional African safari houses, the original cottage was built with sandstone “convict” bricks and sits on a solid concrete slab. The rear elevation captures never-to-be-built out views, with a north east aspect ideal for year-round living.

“The house has soaring 3.5 metre ceilings, parquetry floors and wood-burning fireplaces,” Mr. Bertram says.

“Two living areas, a formal dining room and sunroom make the house entirely liveable as is.

“It’s a magical place that needs a new family to love it, and with four bedrooms, two bathrooms and an internal laundry there is room for everyone.”

He says there is also an entertaining verandah, level lawn, courtyard and stairs down to the beach.

Auction Saturday 8 May at 10:45am
