Mosman is located approximately 5.5 kilometres north-east of the CBD in Sydney’s Lower North Shore in the local government area of Mosman. Since 1997, Mosman is the only officially recognised suburb in the LGA, however traditional locality names including Balmoral, Beauty Point and The Spit are still recognised. The suburb is actually a peninsula between Sydney and Middle Harbours and therefore many properties have stunning water views. Mosman is serviced by express buses to the CBD along Military Road and ferries running seven days a week to Taronga Zoo, Mosman Bay and South Mosman wharfs.
Houses in Mosman are mainly a mix of renovated Federation era and modern architect designed luxury properties. Many of the Federation mansions have been maintained (particularly in the Bradley’s Head area) and sit on large parcels of land, however most waterfront locations have been redesigned with custom multi-storey homes to take advantage of the spectacular views over Middle and Sydney Harbours. Apartments range from smaller Art Deco to blocks to larger post World War II and modern complexes.
The main shopping strip runs along Military Road and the lower section of Spit Road. The intersection of the above roads is known as ‘Spit Junction’ and has good selection of restaurants and a small shopping centre with most of your daily needs including an IGA supermarket, butcher, bakery, pharmacy and café. Hotel Mosman is also near Spit Junction on Military Road and the Buena Vista Hotel is on Middle Head Road.
Mosman boasts eight schools in total, of which Mosman two are independent; Church Of England Preparatory School and Queenwood School for Girls. Other schools include Beauty Point Public School, Blessed Sacrement Primary School, Middle Harbour Public School, Mosman High School, Mosman Public School and Sacred Heart Primary School. Redlands (previously north Sydney campus of SCEGGS) is also nearby in Cremorne. There are also many child care centres and live in nannies available in Mosman.
Mosman has many beautiful harbour beaches including Balmoral, Chinamans, Obelisk Beach and Cobblers Beaches. Taronga Zoo offers entertainment for young and old and offers outdoor performances (‘Twilight at Taronga’) by well-known artists on most Fridays and Saturday nights throughout summer. Bradleys Head provides panoramic vistas of the Harbour and a relaxing spot for a picnic. Along with Bradleys Head, Middle Head (both part of the Sydney Harbour National Park) offer great local hiking spots. There are also football, cricket, rugby, rowing and sailing clubs in the suburb so you can most likely find somewhere local to compete in your preferred sport or just take part in social events.
Luxury modern and federation houses often with stunning harbour views and set in peaceful surrounds, yet with close proximity to the city. Mosman is also a great lifestyle choice with a variety of cafés, boutique shops and opportunities for water sports such as sailing and kayaking around Middle Harbour and out to Sydney Harbour.
