Property Of The Week: 5 Julian Street, Mosman, NSW

A true modern classic in Sydney’s lower north shore.

By Terry Christodoulou 05/08/2022

Once a worse-for-wear 1930s residence, Magnolia House has seen a stylish refresh give the property new life.

The work of Cadence & Co architect Sam Samarghandi saw the home receive a new pavilion of a similar scale added to the north of the existing 696sqm plot — with the floor plan rearranged to now deliver a three-storey home of 5-bedrooms, 3-bathrooms and a 2-car covered parking.

Located in a dress circle address in the northern parts of Mosman, the home embodies a new-meets-old aesthetic, with respect to the home’s original provincial feel paid by the architects in the remodel.

Within, the home nods to its roots with oak floors, high panelled ceilings and banks of steel French doors.

There’s a fireplace in the lounge room which sweeps to a generous open plan living and dining space fitted with a second fireplace.

Also here is the kitchen fitted with custom joinery, a marble island, high-end Miele appliances and a butler’s kitchen. The kitchen’s use of fireclay sinks paired with aged brass tapware adds to the home’s character.

From here, entertaining is simple with a large alfresco deck bordering sweeping lawns and beautiful gardens. Further, a purpose-built space makes way for a firepit.

Of accommodation, the ground floor bedroom or guest suite is accompanied by an ensuite, two powder rooms, laundry or mud room. Within the home’s bathrooms, vertical joinery has been used to juxtapose the heady use of stoned surfaces.

On the home’s upper level comes the remaining four bedrooms, each with robes, while the master bedroom features cathedral-style ceilings, fireplace coupled with a lavish ensuite fitted with stone finishes, twin rain showers and freestanding bath found alongside custom robes and access to a balcony.

Further modern additions include the electric gated access to the double carport and intercom access.

The residence is a short stroll to picturesque parks, bus services and the waterfront and is a mere 15 minutes drive from Sydney CBD.

The listing is with Christie’s International Real Estate’s Darren Curtis (+61 406 761 840); POA.
