|Glasslyn, 10 Cross Street, Mosman, NSW (1905)|
A graceful, symmetrical Queen Anne house set in a large garden. The walls are of painted brick, which contrast with the sandstone window bays, entry steps, verandah wall and verandah piers.
Designed by Spain and Cosh, the house was built in 1905 for merchant and banker George Porter Esq. The land is part of the original Silex Estate.
Now Glasslyn is the Mosman trophy home of Giselle Chadwick, wife of founding partner of Nanuk Asset Management Paul Chadwick.
Nanuk Asset Management founding partner Paul Chadwick and his wife Giselle paid $11 million for the home in 2006.
Throughout the home are high, patterned ceilings, leadlight windows, grand fireplaces and polished wood floors. There’s a billiard room, sandstone rumpus room, dual study rooms, a library room and a temperature-controlled wine cellar. The wraparound veranda overlooks the large level lawn and swimming pool and offers panoramic views of the harbour.
