One of Mosman’s rarest waterfront hits market with $30m price tag
One of Mosman’s rarest waterfront properties will be officially launched to the market today, and it comes with a $30 million price tag.
The landmark trophy home, known as Danieli, occupies a double block of just under 1500sqm, and is one of only a small handful to have a boatshed and deepwater jetty.

The north-facing home in the suburb’s Golden Triangle, also has a level lawn at the water’s edge and overlooks Chinamans Beach.
Geoff Smith, of Ray White Lower North Shore, described the home as one of the best in Mosman.
“Because of the shape of the house and the privacy of it, you’ve got a very wide view,” he said.
“It’s going to appeal to a broad market.”
CoreLogic records show the Rosherville Rd home is owned by Louise Fussell, the wife of UK private equity investor Thomas Fussell who co-founded business intelligence software company Fast Search in 1997.
This was acquired by Microsoft in 2008 for $1.2 billion, and is now known as Microsoft FAST Search.
The couple bought the three-level home in 2004 for $11 million.
Mr Smith said they undertook a renovation of the property in 2008, which included massive work both inside the home and outside.
“It was a major renovation, and when you walk into it today it still presents as new,” Mr Smith said.
It is the third time Mr Smith and colleague Richard Harding have been enlisted to sell the property.
“It’s certainly one of the best houses in Mosman,” he said. “There are only about four properties along there with boatsheds.”
Wyargine Point, on which the property sits, is home to some of Mosman’s most expensive houses.
Artist Ken Done neighbours the Fussell’s property, and Ros Oatley, daughter of the late winemaker and sailor Bob Oatley, also lives in the street.
Danieli has a distinct curved design that makes the most of the views, and has all the features you would expect from a home of this calibre, including infinity pool, gym, wine cellar and boatshed.
Mr Smith said he had already received a number of calls on the property, from ex-pat, local and Chinese buyers.
He said the privacy of the home was a major attraction.
“We haven’t really pushed it, but I have quite a few people who want to look at it,” he said.
The property will open for the first time this Saturday, however inspections will be by appointment to qualified buyers.
Mr Smith confirmed the property’s price guide of $30 million.
The highest price paid for a house in Mosman sits at $25 million, set by Sydney Swans chairman and investment banking boss Andrew Pridham in 2018 when he bought a waterfront home on a double block a few doors away from Danieli.
