Classic 1920s California Bungalow with flexible living
This enchanting 1920s California Bungalow offers a quintessential Northern Beaches lifestyle. Bright, spacious and surrounded by beautifully landscaped grounds, this stunning residence places you a 5-minute walk from North Harbour Reserve, and a 15-minute walk to ocean beaches, cafes and restaurants in Manly.
Once past the protection of the automatic gate, the classic California Bungalow features are clearly on display, beginning with a wide verandah, and carrying through into the house with high ceilings, hardwood floors and decorative ceilings.
At once welcoming, comfortable and stylish, the open-plan living area to the rear of the house takes centre stage, where lounge, dining and kitchen flow effortlessly into each other. The modern kitchen features Smeg gas cooking and sleek white cabinetry. And true integration between indoors and out is achieved with a set of bi-fold doors and windows, which open up one entire side of the living area, leading to an extensive entertainer's patio and level lawn with a direct northerly aspect.
Providing flexibility that is valued by families, there is a rear-set studio with bathroom and laundry. Use this space as a private home office, a rumpus room for the children, or even as a hobbies room. While this may be the perfect configuration for many families, the potential to extend at the back or build up a level may appeal to others (STCA).
The bedrooms are comfortably equipped with built-ins and ceiling fans, and are serviced by a bathroom with bath and overhead shower. There is off-street parking for two cars, plus space for bikes or boats if needed.
Proximity to the scenic paths that surround the harbour is a true advantage of this central setting. North Harbour Reserve is a few minutes' walk away, while the lifestyle hub of Balgowlah, including Stockland Shopping Centre and bus stops, is a 5-minute walk away and offers supreme convenience.
