The Gowing House, A Design Icon And Modernist Masterpiece With A Glorious Harbour Panorama - INSPECT AT SCHEDULED OPEN TIME BY PRE REGISTRATION ONLY

A true design icon designed by legendary architect Neville Gruzman in 1969, this authentic mid-century masterpiece is anchored to the cliffs overlooking the yacht-filled waters of Sailors Bay and crafted to integrate with the landscape. Revolutionary in its time and still celebrated today, the robust concrete and steel structure achieves a remarkable luminosity and lightness with walls of glass framing uninterrupted 180-degree harbour views and highlight windows frame curated vistas. Multiple living spaces, a palm-framed internal garden and walled courtyards bring a Palm Springs vibe while the mesmerising views evoke a feeling of harmony by day with spectacular sunsets transforming into a magical backdrop by night. Combining modernism with Wrightian organic architecture, the five-bedroom home is hidden from the street with a multitude of spaces to inhabit complete with a spectacular glazed atrium that seemingly dissolves into the harbour and a self-contained apartment. On an incredibly private 1,541sqm landholding, the Gowing House is renowned as one of Gruzman's finest works recognised as a highly significant residence and one of the truly singular homes of our Australian Modernist architectural heritage.
