A breathtaking family home where a seamless connection to Parsley Bay is embraced from virtually every room. The grand scale home provides fabulous indoor/outdoor living spaces with the interior design creating the ultimate in understated luxury.
A true lifestyle property, this sensational family home is one of only a rare few to enjoy access to the absolute water frontage of Parsley Bay and the tranquil surrounds of arguably Sydney’s most desirable harbour front enclave. Superbly designed with impeccable attention to detail and a vast array of bespoke finishes, the home offers a series of beautiful living rooms, all integrating with fabulous outdoor entertaining terraces and the brilliant blue harbour backdrop, all privately positioned at the end of a private driveway.
It’s early morning and the sun is yet to rise fully over Parsley Bay, but the water looks inviting and you can’t resist an early morning dip. Duck through the back door, slip on your thongs and take the shared path out the back gate down to the waterfront where a stainless steel ladder delivers you from the rock outcrop into Parsley Bay’s netted harbour pool.
Refreshed from the saltwater swim, head back to the house and take breakfast out on to the full-width terrace with views across to Manly. The views get better as you head upstairs to shower in the decadent main suite which opens on to another welcoming terrace. But for the very best of the views, go up to the top floor where the light-filled attic bedroom opens to a north-facing deck capturing a panoramic harbour outlook.
This family property has decorative ceiling plasterwork and leadlight windows while extending the home towards the harbour.
There are large living and dining rooms, high ceilings, two original fireplaces, a gas and stone kitchen and bright bathrooms with claw foot baths.
The lower level is a self-contained wing with its own entrance, a kitchenette and an en suite, ideal for guests or the nanny.
