About our home

Our home is an Australian Federation Bungalow with a classic coastal renovation, perfectly situated in North Manly on Sydney’s famous Northern beaches. We are a quick 15 minute trip into the hub of Manly, with its famous beaches, cafes, restaurant and attractions. From here, you can hop on the Manly Ferry, for a scenic trip across Sydney harbour, past the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge, into the heart of Sydney. Alternatively, there is easy transport, 5 minutes walk from our property ihnto the heart of the city, or travel north and explore our glorious beaches.

The house, “NEVAR” is a welcoming and inviting retreat with sky- lights, high ceilings, and huge glass doors that open onto a scenic view of pool, bushland and sky.
The main house has 2 main bedrooms and office/ guest room all featuring original patterned ceilings, shuttered windows and plush new carpeting. The main bathroom has a generous bath, and there is a full internal laundry.
The huge open plan kitchen features a 5 mt long island bench-table in vintage timber, adjoining a comfortable lounge area, featuring ceiling fans, large flat screen television and fire place.
This all opens onto a large enclosed verandah, overlooking the pool deck and leafy valley below. Here you will find more comfortable sofa seating, stereo speakers as well as a separate entertaining kitchen, complete with large gas B.B.Q, sink and wine and beer fridge.
Walk down the wide timber steps and you are on the pool area itself, which has a stone-wall water fountain, wide paddling step and stylish deck chairs for relaxing on.
Adjacent to the deck is the Pool house – a fully self-contained studio, with French doors, queen size bed, kitchen and bathroom. The pool house also features its own, flat screen television, W fi access, ceiling fan and air conditioning.

Below, the pool deck, stairs lead down to a lovely hedged in lawn,another great spot to relax, where you can stretch out on the hammock beneath the olive trees and unwind.

This really is the perfect house to experience Sydney from.
Come home and relax by the pool, or unwind with a glass of wine on the verandah, after exploring the best that Sydney has to offer. In in a convenient location, for Sydney’s famous beaches, with easy transport to the heart of the city and walking distant to shops and cafes, staying at "Nevar" will make your visit to Sydney truly remarkable.
