5/291 Edgecliff Rd, Woollahra is in a former Victorian manor house

The Woollahra garden apartment of Sheridan designer Mark Travers and his wife, Irene, has hit the market for the first time in 29 years and its location in a former Victorian manor is bound to impress buyers.

Perfect for a professional couple, the one-bedder at 5/291 Edgecliff Rd has 116 sqm of space including the entertainment courtyard off the dining room — plus use of a common back garden.

“The property certainly has a wow factor from the first moment when we first walked in,” said Mr Travers, who is responsible for all of Sheridan’s sheet collections.

“Sometimes when I am sitting in the living room and there is music quietly playing…it almost feels like I could be in Europe!”

The apartment has a large open-plan living space with plenty of wall space

Built in 1910, the former manor house is believed to have been converted to apartments — six large units like that of the Travers and two smaller ones at the back — in the late 1960s.

The Travers’ home is impeccably maintained, with a private entrance leading to the open-plan living space. There’s also a study.

There are 3.2m ceilings, timber floors, two ornate fireplaces. gas heating and a well-appointed kitchen.

The study with bespoke desk is tucked in behind the living space

There’s plenty of wall space for paintings and also ample room to entertain.

“We have had some amazing parties here with anything up to 60 people standing,” said Mrs Travers, who worked for Sotheby’s for many years as a jewellery specialist.

Ray White Double Bay agent Di Wilson has a $1.4m price guide ahead of the April 11 auction.
