What the Owners Love
First built as a gentleman’s residence, the house has the unique features of beautifully crafted joinery, original cabinetry, quirky collectibles, and a magnificent stone fireplace. White washed walls and floors allow for a relaxed and unmistakably beachy ambience, with inviting interiors that welcome natural light to be filtered into the living, dining, and sun rooms. You will enjoy an unrivalled sunny vantage with eastern and northerly aspects, with sun wrapping around the house from morning to dusk so you can spend lazy afternoons lounging in the private garden with decks, patios, and outdoor furnishings.
What We Love
Take a swim in the pool and relax in the hot tub and feel yourself float away in a bliss-filled haze as you take in the views. The elevation of the house commands unobstructed and expansive breath taking views looking over to the famous Barrenjoey Lighthouse, Pittwater, Whale Beach, and the sparkling blue waters of the Pacific Ocean. Rockridge’s sandstone and timber decking overlook a garden surrounded by an acre of lush, green Australian bush and tropical palm trees. The beach is only a heartbeat away, with easy walking access across the road from the villa. Follow the original common sandstone and wooden steps to the popular south end of the beach with its ocean pool. As there are no immediate neighbours at this quiet and elegant villa, you will feel at one and at peace with your surroundings, just as it should be.
What Families Love
You will be sure to sleep comfortably in one of the four bedrooms between superior linen sheets thanks to the gas heating during cold winter nights and ceiling fans for hot summer evenings. A large white marble gourmet kitchen is sure to make cooking a pleasure for the chef in your group to be enjoyed in the outside dining area under the stars. Televisions, DVD players, and Wi-Fi is available for some rainy-day, easy entertainment.
