The house is in near original state and is a landmark home on the Taylors Bay Track.

  • The interiors are a showcase of Edwardian timber decoration,

  • complete with leadlight windows, timber floorboards (under the carpet) and

  • verandahs of tallow wood flooring with Art Nouveau inspired large arches that frame the harbour view perfectly.

If you feel the need to renovate...

  • Please, don't ruin the timber interiors, they are warm and comfy, definitely worth keeping!!

  • Remember, under that carpet there are original timber floorboards which can be restored.

The house is brimming with classic features such as high patterned ceilings, picture rails, leadlight windows, sandstone foundations and elegant formal dining and living rooms.

  • The house itself forms part of the iconic scenery captured along one of Mosman's prettiest harbourside walking trails.

  • Tightly held by the one family since 1937, this is an opportunity to secure a slice of Sydney Harbour access, and views.
