Unique absolute harbourfront with huge potential

* Bordering Wellings Reserve in a veritable bushland paradise of magnificent Angophora trees and a stunning waterfall, it enjoys a quiet cul-de-sac setting with a perfect north aspect.
* An exceptional opportunity in a truly idyllic setting, it offers enormous scope to recreate the existing home or build a magnificent new family residence (current architectural plans available) capitalising on its unique setting, huge land and enchanting surrounds.

* Uniquely positioned along the scenic foreshore walk to Manly and surrounded by secluded harbour beaches and lush harbour reserve, it's only a short stroll to boating facilities at Davis Marina and a 5 minute level walk to beautiful Forty Baskets Beach.
