Classic elegance and superb position in the heart of Fairlight
This elegant, north facing, double brick and sandstone cottage is bestowed with the graceful architectural features from its period, yet functions effortlessly as a modern home. It embraces a coveted position on an exclusive street, just a short stroll from shops, buses and cafes.
Upon entry, a long traditional hallway leads the way past the bedrooms to a rear-set, open-plan living space that combines lounge, dining and kitchen.
High ceilings allow this space to fill with light, and the rich, mahogany-coloured floors contrast brilliantly with white-on-white walls. The daily family meals will be a joy to prepare in the CaesarStone kitchen with top-of-the-range integrated appliances, including a five-burner ILVE gas cooktop and Miele dishwasher.
The open fireplace provides a focal point for the family to gather around on chilly winter evenings, or when the weather is warmer, throw open the doors to the backyard, where a deck and level lawn presents the ideal spot for alfresco dining or relaxed sundowners.
All of the bedrooms are blessed with high, ornate ceilings and are equipped with built-ins. Two are generous, queen-sized rooms, while the third is the ideal size for a small child, or even as a home office.
The well presented bathroom features a bath with overhead shower and concealed laundry facilities. And a covered carport is a welcome addition at the front of the house.
Ideally located in the quiet backstreets of this very popular suburb, this distinguished family home is in the catchment zone for Manly West Public School, and offers easy access to Manly, the Boy Charlton pool, bus stops, cafes and shops on Sydney Road, and the numerous beaches at Manly and Fairlight.
