Head Lighthouse Keepers Cottage. Magnificent Clifftop Garden Estate With Superb Colonial Sandstone Residence On 1100sqm Surrounded By Parkland


Presenting an idyllic coastal lifestyle reminiscent of the Mediterranean, this vast private estate combines the beauty of sundrenched Italian gardens with the rare significance of Australia's earliest Lighthouse Keeper's cottage superbly restored and renovated for modern living and entertaining.

Unmatched for its stunning parkland setting adjacent to historic Macquarie Lighthouse, the magnificent single-storey sandstone residence reflects its heritage with a seamless balance of colonial craftsmanship and sympathetic modern design. This fastidiously presented home exudes character and the welcoming ambience of a country homestead with sublime indoor-outdoor living, gourmet kitchen, easy flowing living & dining areas, separate family area and versatile self-contained studio, all flowing to sunny verandahs and level gardens.

Situated on Dunbar Head and about 2 kilometres south of The Gap on South Head at the entrance to Sydney Harbour. Set on the southern side of landmark Macquarie Lighthouse, this North facing home occupies 1,100 sqm sundrenched level land on clifftops high above the ocean creating a true estate feel.

Surrounded by extensive parklands, it presents an unrivalled coastal setting and rare opportunity to secure an heirloom of rare pedigree and historic importance.

Minutes to Watsons Bay village, Vaucluse village, Neilson Park & Camp Cove beaches as well as Rose Bay waterfront, parks & ferries as well as the East's top exclusive private schools, this stunning sandstone cottage is an integral part of Australia's maritime heritage.

Supremely comfortable as is and filled with natural light, the house features high ceilings, original polished timber floors, 5 original open fireplaces, cedar joinery, internal and external shutters, skylights and beautiful dcor while still providing potential to further capitalise on this superb address & add garaging, extra living & bedrooms (STA)
