hard to do justice to this jewel of a property in words. Barely noticeable from the road, it cascades down the side of the Barrenjoey Peninsula, offering stunning views of Pittwater and Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park from five bedrooms and multiple living areas. This is an outlook that grabs your attention: azure water, emerald bushland and the pure white sails of passing yachts. But theres just as much to appreciate inside the house. Set over three levels, with an internal lift providing accessibility to all, it’s a perfectly designed holiday home. Entering via the top level, with a double garage and driveway parking, visitors will be struck by the sheer size of the light-filled master bedroom, with its king bed, private covered balcony, enormous en-suite and walk-in robe. There’s another bedroom here as well, along with a bathroom and a beautiful airy study. Downstairs, the middle level is the heart of the house. Sunlight spills through the French Doors, illuminating dining and living spaces, including a living room with a built-in gas fireplace, a formal dining area and an expansive kitchen with high-end appliances, a breakfast bar and walk-in pantry. As lovely as these spaces are, we have a feeling you’ll spend even more time on the huge terrace, designed for alfresco dining and relaxation. Theres another balcony on the lower level, as well as three bedrooms and an additional kitchen/bar, perfect for when you need a drink by the pool. Did we mention the pool? Surrounded by decking and lounges, its infinite design makes you feel like you could swim right into Pittwater. Actually, that isn’t so far from the truth. At the bottom of the terraced and landscaped yard, you’ll find a private dock with direct access into deep water. It seems wrong that you can get all this only an hour from the centre of Sydney, but you can.
