Federation beauty with DA approval for master built 4 bedroom home
With DA approval in place to build up a level – adding another bedroom with en-suite and harbour views as well as re-configuring the lower level – this is a incredible opportunity to create a modern and luxurious, four-bedroom, tri-level family entertainer.
Graced with exquisite period detailing and stylish living spaces, this Federation beauty is an enchanting example of the stunning architecture of its era. This gorgeous c1918 family home showcases a string of period features, including sandstone detailing, original hardwood floorboards, picture rails and gloriously high ceilings.
An arched doorway leads the way from the picturesque and covered verandah down a traditional hallway to light-filled living spaces and incredibly spacious bedrooms – all featuring gorgeous embossed ceilings with decorative cornicing.
The sleek and modern main bathroom has been recently updated with crisp white floor-to-wall tiles and a bath with overhead shower.
The kitchen takes a dreamy outlook over the level, child-friendly garden that gets lovely sunshine year round, and leads to a single lock-up garage with access via Ashley Parade, which is adjacent to council parkland.
Adding versatile liveability to its list of credits, the downstairs rumpus room could act as a fourth bedroom (part of the DA approved plans), or be utilised as a handy second living area.
While all of these features speak clearly for themselves, it's the enviable harbourside location that tops it all off. Set off on foot to Manly and be there within 15 minutes, stopping for a swim at Fairlight beach on the way. Bus stops are at the doorstep, and the adjacent block is being developed to include a park reserve, enhancing the prestige and liveability of this already desirable area.
