An Elegant Family Home In A Tranquil Cul-De-Sac With Idyllic Gardens And Intimate Harbour Views

A home of distinction, this double-fronted residence is framed by established gardens in a tightly held cul-de-sac leading to the leafy oasis of Harbourview Park. The freestanding early 1900s home has been tastefully renovated and extended in keeping with its elegant design sensibility creating a spacious five-bedroom layout with northerly views out over the heritage rooftops to Cooper Park and the harbour from the upper level. A classic verandah and wide central hallway make a welcoming first impression with refined craftsmanship including 3.8m domed ceilings and ornate plasterwork serving as a gracious reminder of the past. Bathed in northerly sunshine, an elegant living room flows through to a spacious dining room and a designer kitchen and casual living room designed to embrace a private courtyard with a wisteria-framed dining terrace. In a fantastically convenient pocket between Cooper Park and Westfield's retail hub, this beautiful home is footsteps to Edgecliff Road's cafes and boutiques and a 400m walk to Bondi Junction station.
