Rare opportunity in exclusive harbourside enclave

FIND. Enjoying the serenity of its beautiful leafy surrounds, this solid double-brick cottage has been held in the same family since it was built in the 1950s. Presented in near-original condition, it offers a myriad of opportunities, which include renovating and re-imagining the current layout, or knocking down and building again, inspired with your own creative vision (STCA).

LOVE. The house sits on a generous 638 sqm block of land that faces north and nestled in this exclusive harbourside suburb that is surrounded by stunning harbour reserves and beaches. The house currently offers two bedrooms, a number of living spaces, plus a beautiful backyard that has been landscaped to perfection to create a lush space for the whole family to enjoy.
- 1950s single-level brick cottage in near-original condition, resting on a generous 638 qm block with a perfect northerly aspect to the rear.
- The house features high ceilings, decorative cornicing and has a solid double-brick construction.
- Separate lounge and dining spaces are spacious and light, and a rear-set sunroom drinks in the northerly sun.
- The big backyard is thriving with an incredible Date Palm tree and tropical-inspired plantings, a great play space for the kids.
- There are two bedrooms, one of which has built-in storage, with the flexibility of using the dining area as a flexible third bedroom.

LIVE. This exclusive northern beaches enclave is surrounded by stunning harbour reserves and beaches, including Forty Baskets, North Harbour Reserve, Dobroyd Head and Clontarf Beach. National Park walking trails are in the local area, including the iconic Manly to Spit walk, whilst local shops and outstanding schools are also within walking distance. Despite its very private, tranquil and protected setting, this idyllic location is close to shopping centres in Balgowlah village, surf beaches and city transport, and is just a short drive into Manly.
