Century old Mosman home on the market

By Tina Campbell

ON THE market for the first time in close to two decades, the 109-year-old 3 Wunda Rd, Mosman is attracting plenty of buyer interest from demographics not usually at the forefront of buying into the Lower North Shore.

Ray White Lower North Shore director Bernard Ryan said the five bedroom house was seeing interested groups from the Eastern Suburbs and the inner suburbs of Sydney.

“You wouldn’t usually see these groups overly interested in a Mosman home, but with the accessibility to the city by ferry and bus, it really has those groups interested,” he said.

While the local lower north shore buyer has made up most of the inspections, Mr Ryan said the house was in a prime location.

“The house is a short walk to all the cafes and eateries in Mosman, as well as a short walk to the Mosman ferry,” Mr Ryan said.

Located on a 639 sqm block, the Federation home has been renovated and restored to near original standard.

“This house is unusual as it is 1.5 times bigger than most blocks around it. Most surrounding properties are usually around 500 sqm instead of the mid-600 sqm, which is quite appealing to the local buyer,” Mr Ryan said.

The northeast to rear aspect home includes an established low-maintenance garden as well as an oversized swimming pool acting as the focal point of the backyard.

Named Katoomba, the owners have built up and down from the original structure to add a parents retreat and a lower self-contained area.

The main bedroom occupies the entire top level and includes a private balcony overlooking the backyard, as well as views of the Opera House.

Downstairs on the main level is the formal lounge, which contains a working fireplace, while the family room opens to the main terrace which is protected by an automated awning.

The granite kitchen includes finishings such as a Miele coffee machine, Miele dishwasher and Smeg oven.

On the lower level, is the self-contained quarters which has a living/dining area with a kitchenette as well a separate bedroom with ensuite and built in robe.

“A lot of people who have been through the doors have been attracted to the parents retreat and all it has to offer,” Mr Ryan said.

Mr Ryan said the current owners were selling the property to a planned downsize.

Other features in the property include a two vehicle carport, shutters, ducted reverse-cycle airconditioning an alarm system, high ceilings, chandeliers and restored original features.

The property is a short walk to Mosman village and has access to a number of bus and ferry links to the city as well as a number of popular schools and harbour beaches.

No. 3 Wunda St goes to auction with Ray White on March 15 at 5pm with Mr Ryan adding that it is attracting buyers with over $5 million to spend.
