Emerging from an inspired transformation by Kerry McGrath Architects, this character home is a melting pot of Federation charm and modern living.
Landscape gardens greet you as you walk up the path to 3 Lang St’s character veranda of the five-bedroom home.
The front of the home contains many original Federation elements including 3.2m ceilings. This part of the house has a living room that can be used as a fifth bedroom.

There are four bedrooms including the main bedroom in this section. The main has a fireplace, built-in wardrobe and an ensuite bathroom with separate bathtub and shower.
The second bedroom also has a fireplace and a street facing window.
Past the bedrooms is a living room where you bid farewell to the old and meet the new as you reach the heart of the home — the kitchen/ dining room. Sleek in design, the contemporary kitchen has a sky light and an eye catching concrete Caesarstone breakfast bar. The kitchen has IIve appliances, electric cooking, two ovens and a dishwasher. The two pendant lights complete the stylish look.
There is also a dining room with wrap around sliding doors that leads to an outdoor terrace — one of several entertainment spaces this home offers.
Adjacent to the dining room is an additional family room with cathedral ceilings.
The level backyard has plenty of room for the kids to run around. There is also a storage shed and a dual carport with rear access via Mackie Ln.
Set on a level 664 sqm block and located off Military Rd, the home is a short walk to Mosman village, local schools and an abundance of bus services to the city and the northern beaches.
Features include airconditioning, storage room, internal laundry and built-in wardrobes.
According to CoreLogic data, the property last traded hands in 2011 for $1.945 million. This time it will go under the hammer on February 16 at noon with a $2.4 million guide. It is for sale through O’Gorman & Partners’ Megan Thomas and Anthony O’Gorman.
