A Private Family Haven With Wide Valley Views In An Idyllic Setting On The Border Of Bronte

Hidden away in a quiet enclave on the border of Bronte, this freestanding Californian bungalow has been transformed into a light and airy contemporary home designed to embrace wide valley views and forge a close connection with the outdoors. A considered approach to contemporary living retains the spirit of the 1920s coastal classic while reinterpreting the layout with new spaces to relax, retreat, play and entertain. A flexible two-storey layout and careful selection of materials deliver a relaxed coastal feel ensuring the home sits perfectly in the landscape with huge open living space flowing to a private terrace with ocean glimpses while a lush private garden captures the sea breeze. Set behind a sunny garden with a herringbone bluestone entry, the impeccably appointed home blends style with functionality and has been designed to adapt to a family's changing needs with a parent's retreat and the flexibility to reconfigure as a four-bedroom layout. Part of a community minded neighbourhood with Varna Park at the end of the street, it's 400m to Macpherson Street village and a short walk to Bronte Beach and Clovelly's sheltered waters.
