Rare opportunity! Classic Manly cottage with huge potential

Explore the outstanding potential offered by this charming freestanding cottage positioned in a superb lifestyle location, just metres to the Boy Charlton Pool, acres of recreational parkland, and access to a choice of idyllic beaches.

Positioned on a private elevated parcel of land, it's set on an unexpectedly deep block extending to deep, cascading park-like gardens offering plentiful room to further extend.

Freshly schemed and perfectly comfortable as is, it comes with the bonus of architect-designed plans to redevelop the site and create a luxurious tri level family residence capitalising on ocean views from the upper levels and wrapped in sun soaked decks.

A rare opportunity in this particularly sought-after Manly locale, it's bursting with potential and enjoys an enchanting outlook and tranquil surrounds teeming with birdlife.

Character-filled interiors currently comprise two double bedrooms, one with an adjoining sunroom/play area and the main with built-ins, a separate sunroom, adjoining living and dining rooms and a smart contemporary gas kitchen.

The rear of the home opens to a deep covered entertainer's deck, effectively creating an outdoor living room, leading to the idyllic north facing gardens with lawns, established trees and vegie garden.

Additional features include off street parking (potential for double garaging STCA), fresh modern bathroom, polished timber floors, a huge workshop/laundry/store room and gas heating and hot water system.

Ideal for those looking to create their dream family home, it's ideal to live in as is while contemplating the plans and enjoy a carefree coastal lifestyle.

Positioned on a quiet, leafy street and set high to capture refreshing ocean breezes and sweeping district views, it's close to a choice of schools, Manly ferry wharf and idyllic coastal beaches.
