OUR HOME: AVAILABLE to end of Oct 2019. We are NOT interested in a swap over Christmas.
NO swaps less than 5 days, as it isn’t worth the cleaning and housekeeping fees.
In 2020 we should be available from around mid April to July, and mid August to late October.
Located just a few minutes from beautiful, safe, sandy surfing beaches and overlooking the fabulous Pittwater waterway.
Entry to our home, which is all quite newly renovated inside and out, is down a few steps through a tropical garden with glimpses of the waterways below. The mezzanine entry leads down a few steps to a large open plan lounge/dining / kitchen/family eating area. From the lounge and dining areas you can see panoramic views of both Pittwater and the Pacific Ocean with coastline looking all the way to the North Head of Sydney Harbour.
The lounge/ dining, with soaring 6 m high ceiling, features a slow combustion wood burning fireplace plus gas heating, large flat screen Smart TV, Wifi is available.
The kitchen has granite benches, Italian Ilve appliances and a gas cook top, Miele dishwasher and an espresso machine. Here there is also reverse cycle air conditioning. Adjacent is a guest bathroom and laundry. Next to the kitchen is a family eating area looking out to the views.
Leading out from this large open plan level is a huge semi-covered deck with gas BBQ and 2 outdoor table settings, all overlooking stunning water and coastal views. Watch the local sailing boats while you sip a drink and enjoy the views all around.
Upstairs is the large mezzanine bedroom, only up a few stairs. It has a new full marble ensuite bathroom with double shower. There is a small deck off this bedroom, also with stunning views of the water, perfect for a Champagne while watching the sunset.
Downstairs on the lower level are 2 large guest bedrooms, a newly renovated bathroom with bath, and a large family room with flat screen Smart TV , desk and laptop computer, plus gym equipment. Again all rooms have large windows with fabulous views. There is also a small deck off this room too, leading to the back garden.
A Lexus sedan may be available for a swap. House is STRICTLY NON SMOKING. With 3 levels of stairs with glass balustrading, it is not suitable for children, and we prefer adults only.
We are meticulous with our home, as we would expect you to be whilst staying here, and naturally, as you would expect us to be in your home too.
We love this area for its world class walks with panoramas over the Pacific Ocean and glorious Pittwater Waterways. There is easy access to many scenic walks, many great safe surf beaches, cafes & restaurants aplenty, plus stylish shops, supermarkets (5min drive or 10min walk), and 2 cinemas, 6 local golf courses, as well as 2 yacht clubs with great restaurants on the waterfront (5 mins drive) and beautiful safe sailing around the Pittwater waterways. You can hire a boat or a kayak.
In 20 mins- there is the wonderful scenic National Park of Ku ring gai, with postcard panoramic views of Pittwater and the whole coastline. Here there are many walks surrounded native flora and fauna. You can catch a ferry from Palm Beach to the Central Coast, or Pattonga ( with trendy cafe/restaurant), Ettalong or right up the historic Hawksberry River.
We have a very good local live theatre, called Glen St, 25 mins drive away with year -round plays and music on offer.
Half an hour will see you in Manly from where you can take the ferry across the world's most beautiful harbour to Sydney City.
For anyone visiting Sydney for the first time this is an unforgettable experience as the ferry passes within touching distance of the iconic Opera House and Harbour Bridge.
Alternatively, in 40minutes (off-peak by car or bus) you can drive to the City and enjoy all the culture, history and delights Sydney has to offer.
