Charming cottage with family appeal
This generously-proportioned timber and brick cottage, in the leafy surrounds of North Balgowlah, is ready for a new beginning. It offers a keen renovator the chance to re-imagine the interiors or even knock down and build from the foundations up again.
Set on a sunny, near-level block on a tree-lined street, this is a popular suburb with families due to its peaceful surrounds as well as the scenic vistas that surround Middle Harbour, and its access to the beautiful bushland areas around Manly Dam, which is just a few blocks away.
Also known for its excellent schools, friendly community and a good set of local shops, it's an easy drive to many of the northern beaches hotspots – only a 10 minute drive to Manly or Dee Why, and the Wakehurst Parkway makes travelling further up the beaches very convenient.
The house itself features bright and open interiors, with over-sized living spaces that lead to sunny, private outdoor spaces.
The front terrace faces east and drinks in leafy views of the street, while the rear courtyard could easily be transformed into a stunning garden with a level lawn.
Showcasing a very functional floorplan, three generous bedrooms are tucked away together, while a second living room to the rear adds a versatile space always appreciated by growing families.
A double lock-up garage with heaps of under house storage, plus space for more off-street parking or even a small boat adds to the convenience factor for this much-loved home that is ready for a new family to embrace and make it their own.
