Sophistication & charm with dual street access
This Fairlight beauty is sure to win many hearts. Basking in the sun thanks to its perfect north facing aspect, it's a gorgeous combination of character and charm blended with the modern comforts and convenience of today. Positioned on a beautiful tree-lined street in a highly coveted locale that's close to both Fairlight shops and Manly Beach, this elegant home enjoys the best in beachside living and also offers prized rear lane access via Quinton Lane.
With a highly functional layout over one sumptuous level, it offers easy living that's sure to appeal to both upgraders and downsizers. With a pretty façade and a sun-drenched verandah at the front, inside it's all about the fresh interiors, with beautiful high ceilings, ducted air-conditioning and modern design elements such as plantation shutters and Spotted Gum hardwood floors.
There are three generous queen-sized bedrooms with built-ins, and an oversized contemporary bathroom with dual sinks, heated towel rails and a luxuriously deep bath. The converted attic space is fully carpeted with downlights and internet access and is a great space to use as a home office. But it's all leading to the spacious, open plan living at the back of the home which offers real wow factor. Cleverly designed to maximise light and space, the stunning pitched ceiling and perfectly positioned windows ensure this zone is a delightful retreat year round. The impressive Caeserstone gas kitchen is the heart of the home, linking seamlessly with the dining and living areas, and flowing out to the all-weather entertaining terrace with automatic Vergola.
The manicured rear lawn and garden has enormous frangipanis to remind you of how close you are to the beach, and provides a sunny spot for lazy afternoons and plenty of room for play for the kids and four-legged friends.
A fantastic extra which makes life easier is the rear lane access via Quinton Lane and the large lock-up garage - a versatile space, it's set up to easily convert into a peaceful and private self-contained studio or home office, with the added potential to add another level and convert it into a granny flat (STCA).
But it's the superb location that ticks the final box. This stunning family home is on a quiet street with vibrant Manly on the doorstep, Manly West Public School only a short walk away, and for Monday morning there are city buses to whizz you to work. It's a fabulous find.
