A once-in-a-lifetime chance to buy a piece of Kirribilli’s waterfront is making a splash on the commercial property market, with the property already turning heads.

The 1269sqm estate at 2-4 Stannards Place, Kirribilli is on the market for the first time since 1938, offering buyers with deep pockets the chance to usher the exclusive north shore asset into a new era.

The property, which includes a circa 1920s bungalow and mid-century home that are in need of renovation, is being marketed at around $15 million, with commercial buyers potentially eyeing it as a development site.

It was among the most-viewed properties nationally on over the past week, though retail and industrial assets continue to capture their share of attention as buyers look to invest.
