Character Californian Bungalow, perfect family home
Basking in the sunshine on Balgowlah's famous palm lined street, this classic double brick heritage house is a wonderfully comfortable family home with a huge amount of heart. It has been beautifully renovated creating a stunning fusion of old world charm with eye-catching contemporary design. It also features some very handy extras such as a versatile sunroom, and a fabulous garden studio, a bonus for the kids to play in, extra storage or office space. With so much on offer it will be hard not to fall in love.
The front of the home is brimming with classic period features that have been beautifully enhanced and time-honoured, while the back of the house is a masterpiece in modern family living. With a clever open plan design, the spacious living and dining area is flooded with natural light and northern sunshine. The sleek and well-appointed kitchen looks out over the expansive living area and back garden, and wall to wall glass doors create a seamless connection to the outside living space. The sunny deck facilitates relaxed summer entertaining or lazy afternoons, and the expansive level garden is framed with leafy trees and natives creating a completely private and secure place for kids to play and pets to roam.
The master bedroom features a very handy sunroom that would work beautifully as a nursery, study or additional quiet sitting room, and the two additional generously sized double bedrooms both include built-in robes.
A fantastic inclusion is the insulated garden studio with neighbouring WC. Conveniently serviced with an internet connection, it offers a range of potential uses including kids retreat, a handy home office space or additional storage for example. Another feature is the huge attic, perfect for additional storage space to hide an abundance of items large and small accessed from a pull down ladder.
In a quiet street, the location is superb for relaxed family living. Balgowlah Stockland is close by, as well as playgrounds, spectacular beaches, and an array of exciting cafes and restaurants to choose from. Excellent Manly West Public School is a two minute walk away, as are local and city bound buses. And for those who love a walk along one of the most beautiful harbours in the world, it's easy access to the Spit to Manly path.
