Manly cottage transformed into chic family beach house.
*Retaining an abundance of character, this home sympathetically blends the charm of yesteryear with a striking and contemporary renovation.
*The dramatic centerpiece of the home is the sunken open-plan family area - a true family hub. High raked ceilings, numerous windows, bi-fold doors and servery style windows capture refreshing sea breezes and warming golden sunlight from the absolute northern aspect. Entertaining is a joy with a beautiful yet functional kitchen containing a Caesar-stone breakfast bar and industrial sized stainless steel oven and cook-top - all flowing effortlessly through the bi-fold doors to the outdoor entertaining area.
*Overlook the garden from the living area or the back deck - the sheer size of the backyard is a delight. Rarely does a home in Manly offer such an expansive space - set on 809sqm. There is ample room for outdoor games and even a pool - still with considerable space left over for children to enjoy the grass under their feet. The north-facing aspect ensures sun all day and throughout the seasons - a perfect orientation.
*An upper level parents retreat contains a private study and huge bathroom. The surprise is a private balcony taking full advantage of the aspect with sweeping district views, stunning at night-time. Three enormous double bedrooms are contained on the lower level sharing a main bathroom and a separate living area - perfect for a children's play area or 2nd living. A generously proportioned internal laundry, storage under the house and stairs, built-ins in all bedrooms and double carport ensures all the practical needs are met.
*A quintessential contemporary beach house combined with a fabulous location, very large land size and much desired northern aspect make this unique home simply exceptional.
