Unique period home with exquisite detailing & double street access
Exquisite period detailing sets the scene for this beautiful sandstone 1896 cottage with self-contained studio and access from Quinton Lane.
Elegantly updated to retain many of its original features, yet functioning in a completely contemporary sense, the fusion of old and new has been handled with a masterful hand.
Positioned on a beautiful tree-lined street, a decorative glass door welcomes you into the stunning living and dining area. Cleverly lit by a skylight and partially separated by an exposed sandstone brick wall, warm and cosy evenings will be spent in a comfortable armchair in front of the open-fireplace admiring the gorgeousness of this space.
Evoking a sense of yesteryear, the kitchen is heightened by the use of exposed brick and stone floors, yet is finished to perfection with granite benchtops and gas cooking. The updated bathroom features a claw-foot bath, beautiful stained glass windows and excellent use of period-style floor tiles.
To the rear, a delightful courtyard and elevated deck with Frangipani tree provides a sunny spot to socialise with friends or for lazy afternoons with a book.
A self-contained studio with panelled walls has a kitchenette, bathroom and living space, offering flexibility for a family with older children or even to provide an income. Access the lock-up garage from the studio, or via the rear-street.
There's no wonder properties on this peaceful street are tightly held. A 15-minute walk will take you to Manly beach, and the Boy Charlton pool, Fairlight shops, parks and schools are in close proximity.
