“We both grew up in the country so living in a waterfront property with magnificent views of Greenwich bushland has been such a joy,” Mrs Clapham said.
Former Arnhem Asset Management CEO George Clapham.
Mr Clapham has worked in finance for most of his life. He has previously worked for Bankers Trust Australia and ABN AMRO Asset Management Australia.
The 1200sqm block has five bedrooms, four bathrooms and views of Woodford Bay.
Mrs Clapham said the home is located next to the well known Northwood Groups of artists.
“We are both very interested in art, so to live next to where the well known Northwood Group of artists lived and to look at the exact landscapes they painted has always been rather special,” she said.
The group consisted of famous Australian artists Roland Wakelin, Lloyd Rees, George Lawrence and John Santry.
The home takes advantage of the views.
The property has a large outdoor deck.
The group derived its name from the suburb of Northwood, where these four painters lived from roughly 1940 until 1960.
Features of the home include a large entertainer’s deck, CaesarStone kitchen and a glass fenced swimming pool, as well as a fireplace in the living room.
The Cliff Rd home is a few minutes from Northwood ferry wharf, city buses and Lane Cove Village.
It is scheduled to go to auction on November 24, unless sold prior.
