Our 3 bedroom 2.5 bathroom home in Cremorne was recently renovated to provide a sophisticated base for our life as a professional working couple with adult children who have left home.
There are beds for upto 6 people, with a king bedroom with ensuite bathroom, a queen bedroom with adjoining bathroom and a large study with a double sofa bed.
The king main bedroom on the ground floor provides a peaceful retreat and has double barn-like doors that slide open to a luxury bathroom with underfloor heating, a separate rain- shower and a free-standing bath that looks through a large picture window onto a tropical courtyard.
There is also a separate guest toilet room in the ground floor with built- in laundry with a washer and dryer.
The new kitchen is equipped with a double- sized Ilve oven with gas cook-top, 2 fridges, microwave, an espresso coffee machine and cooking utensils fit for a home chef. The open- plan kitchen dining family room also has a TV and looks into a small front courtyard.
The 2nd bedroom is upstairs and has a queen bed. It has its own balcony with table and chairs, perfect for enjoying a morning coffee. This bedroom has its own full bathroom with a large bath and separate shower.
There is also a large study with a double sofa bed. The downstairs living room has an enormous flat- screen TV and a modular lounge seating for 8. For entertainment there is a Sonos sound system throughout the house, a well- stocked bookcase, magazines, games and a Yamaha upright piano.
There is a tropical roof-top terrace with both undercover and outdoor dining tables and a Bar-B-Q. It has an Indonesian day bed that is the perfect spot for relaxing with a book and a glass of wine while watching the sunset and looking out over the leafy surroundings. The terrace has electric heating and lighting for night time use.
Our home has reverse cycle airconditioning and gas heating. However, in summer we have beautiful air flow and rarely need to use the airconditioning.
We are located in a very safe, quiet, leafy northern harbour suburb, 2 minutes walk to cafes, restaurants, shops and cinema and a 15 minute bus or ferry ride to the Sydney CBD and Sydney Opera House.
For those who like to be active our home is a perfect base for harbour walks, kayaking, sailing and swimming. We are close to Balmoral Beach and The Spit with their restaurants, cafes and water activities and an easy drive to Manly and northern beaches.
We have a small fluffy dog, a friendly Lasso Apso- poodle called Charlie who would like to be looked after but who can easily be minded elsewhere by friends. He has wool not hair and so is non- allergenic.
Our home would be ideal for a romantic Sydney getaway for a couple or a sophisticated city base for 2 couples or a small family.
