A tightly held property that fronts Sydney Harbour is on the market for the first time in 80 years.

It is being marketed by Ray White Crows Nest and Lower North Shore sales agent Chris Keane as “the most secluded property on Sydney Harbour”.

The heritage listed three bedroom house at 233 and 233a Edinburgh Road, Castlecrag was built in 1912 out of Canadian redwood.

The north-east facing, 6500 square metre property is predominantly bushland on the edge of the harbour in Sugarloaf Bay.

Vendors Terry Hey of Carlingford and his sister have decided to sell the family property.

“It would have to be the most photographed property in Middle Harbour as every boat that comes past here stops to take a photo. It’s such a great location and it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity for a lucky buyer,” Hey said.

“Our father (Alfred) bought the property at age 24 years old in 1938 and he moved back into it in the 1970s and lived there for many years before he passed away at the of age 99 years.”

“The tidal pool is adjacent with the heritage listed house and while you cannot own the tidal pool the rates with Maritime are very reasonable.

“There is nothing like this in Sydney Harbour for its bushland and isolation.

“The property has been in the family since the 1930s and in the last 40 years I have been looking after the place but it’s time for us to move on.”

Keane said it was a unique opportunity for buyers.

“This property and land with both lots, totals more than 6500 square metres (approx) which is a rare commodity in Sydney and Australia for that matter with the Australian Bureau of Statistics estimating an average Aussie block size of 474 square metres,” Keane said.

“It has been in the same family for over 80 years and is one of only three homes that were positioned down on the water overlooking Sugerloaf Bay.”

“This is the only one of the three that remains privately owned. The other two properties are owned and rented out by council. This is literally a once in a lifetime opportunity said.”
