Vaucluse Mansion Sets $60m Price Guide

With a 20 car garage, you might need to start thinking about how to fill it.

Expansive is an understatement. The limestone compound known as ‘Ganeden’, sits on a huge 2400sqm hillside block in Sydney’s Vaucluse.

The property, 38a Wentworth Road, has a price guide of around $60 million making it one of Australia’s most expensive listings this year. For that money you get iconic views of Sydney Harbour, with the bridge and opera house both visible. Inside there’s plenty of room with seven bedrooms, three kitchens, two internal lifts and a massive 20 car garage for all your toys.

The home is perfect for private parties with an indoor pool and in-house private function area with a separate entrance onto Vaucluse Road fitted with a commercial kitchen.

If you’re wondering how someone acquires so much land in Sydney, the site was once three homes, with corporate lawyer John Landerer purchasing the initial lot in October 1988 before purchasing the two houses behind, 42 & 45 Vaucluse Rd in the mid 1990s – combining them to create a huge site to build the enormous new home.

Landerer called in Paul Bangay, landscape architect, to manicure the gardens that span from Wentworth to Vaucluse Road alongside Frank Grill to deck out the interiors.

At the minute we can only view the outside, as only qualified buyers will be brought through the property by Sotheby’s Sydney.
