Mosman Suburb Profile

Mosman is one of Australia's most prestigious and sought after coastal suburbs. Located on the foreshores of Sydney Harbour, many homes are purpose built to take advantage of the panoramic water vista to the east and views of the Harbour Bridge, Opera House and city skyline to the west.

Only 10km (approx) from the Central Business District (CBD), commuters can choose to travel to work by car or bus over the world famous Sydney Harbour Bridge or catch a ferry across the Harbour, passing the Opera House to Circular Quay. It must be said that more and more residents are choosing not to leave the area at all and are working from home.

The Mosman Local Government Area, comprising the suburbs of Mosman, Beauty Point, The Spit, Balmoral, Clifton Gardens, Georges Heights and Cremorne Point, is home to some of Sydney's most magnificent (and expensive) residences. Its proximity to the CBD, dynamic coastal lifestyle and pricey real estate make it highly sought by the rich and famous. Popular with expatriate Australians and international buyers, housing prices in the region have performed well above the rest of the Sydney metropolitan area for a many years now. Although it is costly to purchase property in the area, statistics gathered by the Real Estate Institute of NSW have shown that median house prices in the area have repeatedly shown the highest increase in value of all Local Government areas in Sydney.

Whilst the many water pursuits the area has on offer are a huge drawcard for many residents, Mosman also offers some of the city's best boutiques and homeware stores. The Mosman shopping village stretches for a couple of kilometres from the corner of Spit Road down to the roundabout at Bradleys Head Road (where our offices are located) and features an eclectic mix of boutiques, cafés and restaurants. Competing only with Double Bay in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs, Mosman is one of the centres of high class fashion in Sydney.

Due to its diverse history, which have included a whaling station in the 1930s and a fort in the 1850s, Mosman's residential architecture is diverse. Styles range from magnificent turn of the 20th century heritage listed estates to the latest, cutting edge housing designs. Views very much dominate the scale and character of most homes in the area, as even the slightest glimpse of Middle Harbour or the city skyline can add hundreds of thousands of dollars to the value of a property.
