There are some peninsula addresses that are so exclusive people wait years to buy into them. Bower St in Manly is an example. Halesmith Rd in Mona Vale is another.
This short road runs parallel with the foreshore, abuts Winji Jimmi Park and allows its eleven houses a north-easterly aspect over Pittwater.
Three of the houses haven’t traded for decades and the last sale was more than a year ago for a figure north of $5 million.
But, now, there’s a chance to buy into the exclusive street — and it will set you back less than you think.
A prestigious house at number 2 Halesmith Rd is for sale and being auctioned this Saturday.
Simon Rawson, of Wiseberry Mona Vale, said the five-bedroom house on 734sqm of land is a great home for entertaining, has a price guide of $2.75 million and has a front-row seat for the Pittwater fireworks.
“This home is flooded with natural light, has high ceilings and large windows framing the picturesque views of Pittwater from most rooms in the home,” he said.
