The ground level is complete with study/lounge and library that can double as a formal dining area, with an opulent chandelier ideal to create the perfect vibe for a fabulous intimate dinner. On the first level you will find a queen bedroom with ensuite bathroom and, as you walk down the hall, the layout opens up to a beautiful spacious kitchen, dining and lounge area with spectacular views. The top level of the home consists of a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom and an intimate, private king master suite, complete with double shower and bidet in the ensuite bathroom. With a clever use of skylights, the rooms are stunningly light and airy capturing the sunshine and exuding a sense of calm and peacefulness.
What the Owners Love
From the kitchen, dining or lounge area your attention is captured by the wide views of the harbour and beach, beautifully framed by the iconic Norfolk Pines: you can't go wrong with a bit of people watching and you could easily spend all day just watching the activities of the locals and tourists passing by! Downstairs in winter the gas fireplace keeps the lounge cosy and warm and is a favorite spot to curl up and read a book, whilst in summer the private harbour front garden courtyard and BBQ is ideal for a bit of alfresco dining or just to enjoy a glass of rose' in the sun!
What we love
With a bright red front door this home is an interior designers dream offering a unique and inspired mix of modern luxury and heritage charm. The modern renovation has seamlessly integrated the tradition of the original architecture and history of Manly with cutting edge style and sophistication. The design medium changes gradually as you progress upwards through the home offering a different experience on each level; the attention to detail is second-to-none with bespoke interiors gently metamorphosing across all 3 levels from classically elegant through to avant-garde New York Loft style. A particular standout is the in-house lift with a different door design to suit the interiors of each level.
