A house designed by an award-winning architect for an Australian rugby legend is a score, but throw in harbour views plus waterfront access and it’s a dream home opportunity.

George Gregan and his wife Erica have listed their longtime Luigi Rosselli home overlooking Pearl Bay in the exclusive Beauty Point enclave of Mosman.

The pair, who also run a successful catering business, as well as a collection of cafes and wine bars under The Gregan Group banner, have raised three children at the custom made five-bedroom property.

It has a price guide of $9m.


After purchasing an existing property at 33 Pearl Bay Rd for $1.34m back in 1999, the then newlyweds engaged their favourite architect to create their dream home on the site.

The current house was completed in 2007 the same year Gregan retired from Australian rugby.

“Rosselli is a family man too, so he understands the functionality of a home and how it blends into the landscape. The house has a great flow. It’s a timeless home; that’s why he’s so good,” said Gregan, who added that the now 15-year old house is as impressive as day one.

The home boasts stunning water views.


“It has stood the test of time. Whoever gets it will have a great home.”

At the time Gregan and Rosselli were liaising on the design, the former Wallabies skipper was still playing internationally, with stints in both France and Japan, so they ensured the lifestyle and wellbeing features were five star.

“I was a professional sports person so we included a spa, sauna recovery room, pool and gym,” he said.
