- Bedrooms and bathrooms are positioned on both levels, upper bedrooms all include access to balconies.
- Carport and additional driveway space, security alarm, large storage room, reverse-cycle air-con units in downstairs and upstairs.

LIVE. This is a superb location from which to immerse yourself within the welcoming community of Balgowlah, where the lifestyle is convenient and relaxed, and most things you need can be accessed on foot. The beautiful environs of North Harbour and Forty Baskets are moments away for secluded harbourside swims and beach hangs. Balgowlah shops, Stockland shopping centre and city buses are a quick stroll away, and it's a pleasant walk or bike ride into Manly along the beautiful harbour foreshore.
