Modern, architecturally designed home a few minutes from the city with great access to transport - ferry, train or bus.
McMahon's Point is a well kept secret - only a few minutes from the Sydney CBD is this quiet 'village' community with all the modern necessities at hand: good coffee, a good range of restaurants, and pleasant harbour walks.
Our light-filled house is spread over three levels. At street level is the garage. Going up 15 steps you arrive at our front door and the open plan living areas. There is a large balcony facing Berry's Bay with lovely water views and very nice sunsets. This connects with a combined lounge and dining area, which flows through to a very practical kitchen, a sun room and 3rd toilet, then through to the back courtyard with a small garden. The obligatory BBQ is at your disposal - and in summer so is any tomato or strawberry crop you manage to get to before other living things eat them.
Upstairs are three bedrooms. The master bedroom has a king size bed, an ensuite bathroom and large windows also facing the bay. The second bedroom has a queen size, very comfortable bed, and the third bedroom / study has a sofa that also folds down to a very comfortable double bed. The main bathroom has a bath.
There is good gas heating downstairs, as well as air conditioning downstairs and in the two larger bedrooms. We can count on one hand the number of times we use the air-conditioning in summer, as there is usually a nice breeze from the water, especially at night.
We love living here for the proximity to all that the city has to offer, but also access to Balls Head reserve and the harbour foreshore for walks, North Sydney Olympic Pool for the most scenic laps you are likely to swim, and the great neighbours.
