No. 5B Wharf Rd, Longueville, has sold prior to auction to a local family for an undisclosed price.
With it’s award-winning gardens and its position on the Lane Cove River, 5B Wharf Rd in Longueville was always going to be popular with buyers.
So it should come as no surprise it sold four days before its planned auction.
Listed with Belle Property Lane Cove’s Simon Harrison and Kim Walters, the exact price remains confidential, however Mr Harrison confirmed it sold within the $6 million-$6.6 million price guide.

The buyer is a local family upgrading from their current property. They were one of nine parties to obtain a contract.
Mr Harrison said it wasn’t surprising that it was a great result, considering how hard it was to find a home in this part of Longueville.
“The waterfront market has been very tightly held in this 2066 postcode this year,” he said.
“Very few homes have come up for sale and that’s why we had 90 groups through.”
Sitting on 925sqm, the architect-designed gardens won first prize in the 2017 Lane Cove Garden Competition, and were featured in Sydney’s Hidden Design Festival this year.
The house has a large outdoor area overlooking the bay.
The designer kitchen will make cooking fun.
They were redesigned in 2016 by landscape architects, Formed Gardens. The designer pool is by Peter Glass & Associates.
Recycled timbers from a deconstructed wharf in Woolloomooloo have also been used right throughout the property including the steps and the boat ramp.
Mr Harrison said interested parties came from all over the north shore to view the home, due to its rarity.
“It is very rare to get a north facing waterfront anywhere on the north shore,” he said.
