A spacious family home offering timeless style set high and wide in an exclusive dress circle position, this freestanding home also benefits from near-level access at the rear. Enjoying quiet privacy bathed in northerly sunshine, the flowing layout overlooks the leafy neighbourhood, with scenic harbour views from the top floor. Opening onto stone-flagged entertaining patios and extensive level garden areas (room for a pool), this delightful home offers a remarkable opportunity in a desirable family environment.
Set on a large sunny block (approx 790sqm), the home is well back and hidden from the road. Ready to move in or personalise to suit, the layout includes a wide central marble foyer, 5 spacious bedrooms, all with built-ins, 4 bathrooms (master with private balcony and marble ensuite, marble main bathroom with spa bath, separate shower) and a versatile additional huge whole-floor 6th bedroom or teenage retreat (with marble mantelpiece) and northerly views across the Harbour to Manly.
Together with a marble fireplace, vaulted ceiling and a big bay window, the dado-paneled large formal living room adjoins the separate huge formal dining/family room which leads out to a sunny bbq terrace, en route to the large level garden with near-level private entrance from the rear lane. The separate open plan casual meals area also spills out to the entertaining terrace and garden, while the French Provincial style island kitchen has a Smeg gas hob, oven, Bosch dishwasher, ample storage and a walk-in pantry.
Featuring ducted air con, loads of character, high ceilings, internal laundry, full security, separate wine cellar and a sandstone garage, this idyllic home is minutes to top schools, village shops, transport and the harbour.
