Bradleys Head Rd is the coveted local street that comes with ultimate bragging rights.

Steeped in local history and lined with grand merchant mansions, houses here rarely come to market. When they do, lightning-fast sales and triple figure price tags are par for the course.

“The homes on Bradleys Head Rd are generational properties,” Mosman real estate agent David Murphy says, “and many of them are owned by old money, well-established families who don’t often sell.”

“Monaro”, on Bradleys Head Rd, a timeless example of grand Federation elegance.

Which explains why he’s thrilled to launch 61 Bradleys Head Rd, a landmark residence on 759 square metres with five bedrooms and a dress circle position.

Called “Monaro”, the estate is a timeless example of grand Federation elegance, boasting a versatile floor plan and unlimited living and entertaining possibilities.

The property is a true Mosman thoroughbred, with dual street frontage on Bradleys Head Rd and Ellamatta Ave.

Mr Murphy said the home was originally purchased by Ernest and Charlotte Cansdell in 1908.

“He was a Stock and Station Agent and a storekeeper in the Eden-Monaro district, near Cooma,” he said.

“It’s the reason why the estate is known as ‘Monaro’.

“Descendants of Ernest and Charlotte Cansdell still reside in Mosman and Cremorne today.”
