"Ithaca" - The Poet's Home
When you find the best location, you tend to stay. For life. As happened with the poet and artist who lived here happily for half a century. He loved his north-facing home in this stunning location, a few steps above Chinamans Beach, with glorious views across Middle Harbour.
When the poet (Robert) found this home in 1968, he knew he would never go home-hunting again. He had found a home that truly is "the best". Somewhere to stay for life.
So, what makes the poet's home one of the best - if not the best - of thousands for sale?
Here are some reasons that may entice you. But first some advice: Inspect soon as this home will surely sell soon. And when the new owners (you?) realise they have bought the best, maybe they will do the same as many owners in beautiful Hopetoun Avenue (aka Mosman's Golden Mile): Stay for life.
Either you will renovate the current home or demolish and build your dream home - or maybe both: renovate now and build later. Homes in Hopetoun Avenue have sold for more than $20 million. This may be the least expensive home in the "Golden Mile" in a long time, especially in such a perfect position.
Consider this: Mosman home prices rose 22.5 per cent in 2020, and at least one respected expert, the property analyst Louis Christopher (who has a history of honesty and accuracy), feels that prices could rise by double figures again in 2021.
Anyway, this is a location that makes you feel happy at just the thought of what you come home to - never mind the perennial thrill of entering the front door. Wake to the sound of waves lapping the golden sand a few steps below you. It feels as if you can reach out of bed and touch the water. In the early mornings and afternoons, you can greet lorikeets as you look across famed Middle Harbour. Or stroll around to famous Balmoral Beach, just minutes away, with its lively cafe and restaurant scene. Surely all this cannot be minutes from the CBD of the nation's biggest city? But it is. That's where you are - in the best of all worlds.
Before he bought this home, the poet loved to travel to the Mediterranean, especially the French Riviera and the beautiful Greek islands. Later, thinking of Hopetoun Avenue, he would say, "I live in the best location in the world." He began to spend less time in the Mediterranean and more time on the North side of Hopetoun Avenue.
Few words adequately do justice to the magical aura that envelopes 32 Hopetoun Avenue. It's one of those homes that you must inspect to feel the atmosphere for yourself.
Feel what Robert the poet felt.
See what he saw.
Be prepared for a love affair with something more than a property, but a way of life, a life that few families even imagine.
At this price, Hopetoun Avenue is now well within reach of many home buyers. So, inspect it, feel it, fall in love with it - and live a fairy-tale life here.
That's right: 'Happily Ever After'.
As the poet did.
