Unique Family Sanctuary with Dual Street Access & Sought After Address
This unique sanctuary is an artful blend of old and new, full of character and peacefully set in one of Fairlight's most prominent and sought-after streets with prized dual street access via Daintrey Street.
From the moment you open the front gate and ascend to the entry verandah past the grassy courtyard with fishpond and landscaped gardens, a restorative calmness reinforces an undeniable sense that this is something special.
Soft earthy colours and contemporary features breathe life into beautifully restored period interiors with lime washed timber floors, tall decorative ceilings, picture rails, leadlight detailing, elaborate timber cabinetry and original bay windows.
Designed around a central entertainer's courtyard, an innovative and highly flexible layout showcases a huge formal living area complete with an original stone fireplace in addition to an open-plan family room perfect for dining and indoor/outdoor entertaining.
Quiet and serene with the natural privacy of lush landscaped gardens, the huge central courtyard bathes in north light, welcoming everyday relaxation and celebration wonderfully balanced with tiered hardwood decks, built-in seating and water features flowing into fishponds.
With a contemporary design sympathetic to the home's heritage, a central eat-in kitchen boasts Caesarstone and timber bench tops, Bosch stainless steel appliances, gas appointments and plenty of storage in sleek soft-close cabinetry and a walk-in pantry.
A top floor master retreat with WIR and large ensuite extends to a private undercover balcony with leafy district views in addition to 2 oversized bedrooms, one with BIRs and French doors opening onto the courtyard.
Designer travertine is a stunning feature throughout and the hero in light and bright bathrooms with oversized showers wrapped in frameless glass in addition to a WC and a full-length bath in the main.
An entry foyer, laundry, ceiling fans, ample storage facilities and a tandem carport are just some of the additional inclusions.
A 15min walk to Manly Beach and ferries, a block to Fairlight village shops and cafes, this idyllic location is blessed with short strolls to Manly West Public School, Balgowlah Stocklands, Boy Charlton Pool and Graham's Reserve.
