Contemporary appeal with period charmPeriod charm greets contemporary design like an old friend in this beautiful c1920s cottage.
Situated in the most convenient of settings, the integrity and character of the original architecture has been preserved, yet has been modernised with contemporary flair for everyday family living.
The flexible floorplan begins with a welcoming living room that parades an open fireplace and high, decorative ceilings.
Timber floorboards lead the way to the back of the house to another living area – a spacious, easy-flow space that sets the scene for casual family interactions or for entertaining friends and family.
The gourmet kitchen is equipped with CasearStone counter tops, Smeg and Bosch stainless steel appliances, gas cooking, an eat-in breakfast bar, and a couple of well-positioned skylights to keep things light year round.
This spills out to a delightful garden. Private and enclosed, it offers a partially covered deck, complete with heating for all-weather dining, a level lawn, and a tempting spot to take some shade under the canopy of a beautiful Frangipani tree.
Showcasing premium fittings, the bathroom has been updated with a glistening white colour scheme, a shower with rainwater showerhead and Carrara marble floor tiles.
Three spacious bedrooms and a second bathroom and laundry complete the versatile layout, along with a pull down ladder to access expansive attic storage.
Enjoying a prime position in this highly desirable suburb, it's a 3-minute walk to supermarkets and to Manly West Public School, or the new northern beaches B-Line bus passes on nearby Condamine Street.
