Exquisite character residence

FIND. Idyllically positioned in a tightly-held pocket of Freshwater just steps from Harbord Park, this charismatic P&O-style residence delivers a stunning floorplan that offers versatility and generous space. A one-bedroom granny flat with private access and a sunny deck adds to the appeal, ideal for guests and extended family, or to be rented out to create additional income.

LOVE. An elegant curved and rendered fa├žade fronted by a sweet verandah is the attractive introduction to this home, which follows through into the interiors with high ceilings, light and airy rooms and grand proportions. This home emanates a sense of character and charm that captures the imagination, and there is scope to utilize your own creative flourishes to make it your own, and the option of harnessing a spectacular ocean view by building up a level (STCA).
- With ocean glimpses, leafy outlooks onto the street and grand proportions, the lounge room is classic, elegant space to relax in.
- The house is embraced by easy-care gardens to the front and side, and rests on a corner block with north and easterly aspect.
- The dining area and kitchen combine together as a functional space for entertaining or enjoying meals together as a family.
- The kitchen is appointed with gas cooking, an island bench and a dishwasher, perfectly functional but with the option to update.
- All bedrooms are exceptionally spacious and are appointed with built-in wardrobes. The master bedroom includes access to the verandah.
- Modern family bathroom is appointed with a free-standing bath, a shower with frameless glass and a separate WC.
- A second bathroom features a shower and combines with laundry facilities.
- Council-approved granny flat with queen-sized bedroom, a living area with full kitchen, a private north-facing deck and a shower bathroom. Current tenant paying $550 per week.
- Double carport and extensive under-house storage, lush gardens to the front and side of the house.

LIVE. With its welcoming community, popular village and world-class beach, Freshwater continues to be one of the most sought-after suburbs on the northern beaches. It's a short walk to the village, where there's vibrant collection of boutique shops, cafes and amenities. If you're in the mood for a beach day, either Freshwater or Curl Curl beaches are within walking distance, and bus stops are close to the front door for quick access to Manly or the city. A huge bonus for families is the close access to Harbord Park and Harbord Public School.
