Fabulous retreat in family-friendly locale
Set back from the road on a slightly elevated block, this sophisticated and beautifully-presented family home has a highly functional floorplan that flows easily and caters ideally to family life.
The front of the house is dedicated to relaxed living. Sliding doors from the large family room enables an easy indoor and outdoor connection with the wide front verandah. Facing east, this peaceful spot commands lovely afternoon sunshine, and the calming view of district and ocean will invite you to linger here long into the evening.
Adjoining the living room is a versatile room that could be used as an office or dining room, which then leads into the sleek and modern kitchen. Recently renovated, it features CaesarStone bench tops, stainless steel appliances, and plenty of space for a dining table so the kids can do their homework while you are busy in the kitchen.
From here, gaze out to the garden, a quiet and private oasis lined with trees and established flowerbeds.
Back inside, the peaceful bedrooms are tucked away together – an ideal configuration for families with young children. Two include built-ins and all include ceiling fans.
There's a double lock-up garage, and a welcome addition is the ducted reverse-cycle air-conditioning that's in almost every room.
Given the tranquil setting, this is a highly convenient location. Manly Dam is a couple of minutes' down the road – the perfect spot for weekend bush walks and picnics. The local shops are a short walk away, and Manly, Warringah Mall and the city are easily accessible.
