Ever dreamed of relaxing with a coupe of Champagne, gazing at uninterrupted views as the occasional superyacht fleets across the harbour – all from the comfort of your own home? An exclusive residence in one of the most elite Sydney locations offers exactly that and more.
At the heart of one of Australia’s highly sought-after suburbs, the designer Balmoral home oozes luxury while offering low-maintenance beachside living surrounded by lush native parklands and moored yachts.
Nestled in the blue-ribbon dress circle of Balmoral, 4 Fairfax Road is one of the most enchanting harbour-side residences on offer – many of which are tightly held.

Set against a glorious, tranquil backdrop of deep-blue ocean, you can enjoy the breathtaking views of Middle Harbour all year round from almost any room in the mansion – from the generous bedrooms and stylish living area to the sprawling backyard and even the contemporary kitchen.
Boasting five bedrooms, six bathrooms and a triple-car garage, the multimillion-dollar three-level residence offers 502 square metres of luxury living while providing the utmost privacy.
The open-plan kitchen is an entertainer’s dream. The heart of the home is complete with top-of-the-line Miele appliances and a butler’s pantry that flows to two spacious and separate living areas, which continue out to the expansive alfresco entertaining terrace. Whether you’re hosting guests indoors or soaking up the sunshine on the terrace, a tiled lap pool and manicured garden make for an idyllic way to spend summer evenings.
Inside the haven is a hotel-style master suite for ultimate relaxation. If you can tear yourself away from the soothing ocean views, a gym space and sauna on the lower levels allow you to maintain your health and wellbeing.
The enviable property is made even more spectacular with its limestone floors, underfloor heating, designer lighting for a soft ambience, a statement fireplace, wine cellar, terraces off two bedrooms, contemporary bathrooms, one with freestanding bath and powder room, ample storage areas and additional car spaces for guests.
If you do want to venture away from your sanctuary, the popular beach promenade peppered with iconic cafes and restaurants is just minutes away. It is equal distance to both Balmoral and Chinamans Beach while the Sydney CBD is easily accessible by car or ferry.
“This is one of Balmoral’s finest luxury homes nestled in a tightly held dress circle position,” Cullen Royle Partner Deborah Cullen told The CEO Magazine. “This residence is all about lifestyle. You are located in the heart of one of the Lower North Shore’s blue-ribbon areas with everything on your doorstep.
“Whether it is swimming, sailing or just a daily walk around the pristine natural landscape of the beautiful Middle Harbour suburbs, this area is full of recreation and entertainment. Restaurants and cafes are in abundance. No need to drive, just wander down to breakfast, lunch or dinner. Bliss!”
Designed by award-winning architect Philip Corben Architects, the residence was originally built in 1980 before undergoing a refreshment in 2008 to create a luxurious, modern oasis.
The property, which was nominated in 2008 for the Mosman Design Awards, is on the market for just the third time in its 40-year history with Cullen Royle.
