"Minnamurra"- An Exceptional and Irreplaceable Opportunity

"Minnamurra" is one of Sydney South's most precious historic homes, built in the 1920's and set on a 902sqm parcel of prestige waterside land.

Exuding authentic charm and character, meticulously maintained and renovated to create a fusion of impressive proportions, classic design, modern comforts and relaxed family living.

Standing proudly at the pinnacle of the Burraneer peninsular, in one of Sydney South's most prestigious and sought-after streets, "Minnamurra" an Aboriginal term for "Plenty of Fish" symbolises its geographic position to the stunning Port Hacking waterways.

Originally owned and constructed by the famous "Taubman Paints Family", John Taubman's desire for perfection and his vision and support for the local community was well respected and valued. He was involved in planning, design, construction and protecting the Penninsula against fire. John Taubman was locally respected and renown for his hand crafted copper horn which started the annual Port Hacking yacht race and was sounded from the upper balcony.

A magnificent sandstone fireplace, New Zealand rimu timber flooring and red cedar mantel piece and timber work, stained glass & lead light windows, detailed cornices & mouldings, originally sourced imported Italian wall tiles, parquetry timber foyer, original timber shingles and on-site quarried exterior stonework all feature in this truly special home.

The lower level comprises both casual and formal living area, sandstone Jet Master fireplace, traditional sun room, enormous gourmet kitchen and casual breakfast bar as well as a grand formal dining room, complete with chandelier, detailed cornices and mouldings and original timber woodwork.

The master suite is on the upper level and features a large walk in robe with ensuite bathroom, French doors leading out to a balcony with panoramic views of the Royal National Park & Port Hacking River.

The sunroom's sliding lead light glass doors lead you out to the manicured yard, where original stonework and custom made copper outdoor lamps feature amongst a tranquil leafy setting.

The double garage at the street features barn style doors at the rear which open out into the yard – an ideal feature for large parties or weekend family get-togethers.

Burraneer is moments to village shops, boat ramp, Port Hacking River, parks, schools, yacht club and only a 5 minute drive to Cronulla's beaches, mall, shops, cafes, restaurants, marina, ferry, bus and train service.
