Just off Barrenjoey Road, you could easily miss Philip Road. That would be a shame, because it's a really quiet spot just moments from the mayhem!
Settled neatly on the low side, this quirky '50s weatherboard cottage offers a fully flexible future.
Currently split into two apartments, this could easily be resurrected as a great family home.
Entry is via a lush, shaded, front garden, with mature trees and landscaping.
There's a covered front timber deck, to the entry where the marble floor is made from old butchers tops, which looks great!
From the entry, to the left, there's large kitchen with heaps of storage and access to a sunny timber deck! To the right, the carpeted L-shaped living room, with a slightly Flintstones-style sandstone fireplace, takes center stage and is the heart of this cosy treetop home. Full height windows open to the front deck and overlook the terraced, north facing, garden at the back. It's like standing on a platform in the trees. External blinds shade you from the afternoon sun.
There's a large original two-way bathroom, with separate shower and bath. The colour may not be your choice, but it's in great nick! Off the living room (and the bathroom!) is a large carpeted master bedroom, also with garden views, and a corner of huge built-in-robes. There's another door in the corner which, in a slightly Narnian, way, unexpectedly leads to a separate study. Could easily be made into a walk-in robe?
Downstairs, there's another large bedroom, with sliding doors to the lawn, and a huge laundry with loo, and loads of storage. There's a separate apartment here too, currently with a large bedroom a separate WC, bath/shower room, and a flexible living room. It could easily be reconnected with the rest...
Outside, there's a fabulous terraced garden, in which all the expensive landscaping has been done, giving you two level lawns, sun or shade, and mature vibrant planting. There's a shed at the bottom. And a big hills hoist!
To the front, there's a carport for two cars, parked in tandem. That's it. Yabba Dabba do!!!
