An Iconic and Historic Beachfront Classic on an Expansive 1,150sqm

999 Barrenjoey Road, Palm Beach
Tightly-held and treasured by the one family for 52 years, Craig Rossie' (c1936) is landmark residence on an extraordinary 1,150sqm parcel of absolute beachfront land. It commands remarkable panoramic views taking in beautiful Snapperman Beach and reaching across sparkling Pittwater to Portuguese Beach, Coasters Retreat and the Western Foreshore.

This is the only property on Snapperman Beach to enjoy such exceptional privacy, spectacular elevation and a desirable north-westerly aspect. Boasting a 21 metre wide frontage, its magnificent grounds showcase tiered landscaped gardens and extensive use of sandstone which was hewn from the site itself. The home's substantial entertaining terrace opens directly onto the sand, making this an outstanding lifestyle proposition for anyone that loves swimming, sailing, fishing or boating.

Impeccably maintained interiors display many hallmarks of the original era's elegance and grandeur. The high quality double brick build creates a superb foundation for those looking to renovate and capitalise on this exquisite setting. 11.5 foot high ceilings, a large open fireplace and jarrah floors are featured in the formal living and dining rooms.

Large scale entertaining is easy and there is enough accommodation to cater for an extended family. Generously sized bedrooms display wood paneled ceilings and four have built-in wardrobes, while the upper bedrooms access an original two-way ensuite. Other notable features include an updated kitchen with walk-in pantry, Art Deco main bathroom and off street parking for five cars.

One of the area's few remaining original family classics, this is truly a property of rich history and rare distinction. The site was originally purchased in 1936 by Andrew Derrin, part-owner of Derrin Brothers (a chain of 65+ grocery stores). Derrin built Craig Rossie' and named it after a small mountain near the town of Auchterader near Perth in Scotland where his mother originated from. From 1960 to 1964, the property was owned by acclaimed author Paul Brickhill, known for his celebrated WWII novels The Great Escape', Dam Busters' and Reach for the Sky'.

Whether seeking an unrivaled holiday home or permanent residence, beachfront properties of this calibre are a once-in-a-generation opportunity. City-bound buses, fine dining options and Palm Beach Ferry Wharf are all close at hand.
