Echoes of Frank Lloyd Wright are seen in the brick building's long, low form, cantilevered eaves and stepped ceiling and roofline, but above all, this is a particularly liveable house, with its flexible use of space including a spectacularly positioned master bedroom and ensuite on the upper level, generous living areas and wonderful quality of light throughout. Outdoor living is a feature of the house, too, with the entry-level living area opening to two broad terraces and a swimming pool.
An extensive, two-year (2014 - 2015) restoration of the house has been sympathetic to the original design. The house has been sensitively brought up-to-date and now enjoys the comforts of the 21st century.
To the left of the entry is an airy yet intimate living space with fireplace, its floor-to-ceiling walls of glass, with minimal posts to impede the view, opening to a large terrace.
To the right of the entry, a dining and open kitchen area opens to an expansive deck and swimming pool. Steps lead up from the kitchen area to a small lobby, off which leads a bedroom, which looks out through a floor-to-ceiling wall of glass over the swimming pool and beyond towards Pittwater. Alongside is one of the two bathrooms in the house, plus laundry and a commercial-grade chef's kitchen.
The level of detail and true craftsmanship is evident from the most costly items, such as the zinc roof that follows the original form of the roof, to some of the smallest items, such as a single timber window transom.
Time, craft and a dedication to detail, often with a no expense spared approach, has given the house new life whilst still retaining the very essence of the original design.
This is an iconic home offering modern day living in a breathtaking location.
