Don’t be put off by the Northwood Rd address of this Lane Cove home – the orientation, entertaining and the garaging are all at the northerly rear of the property.
Stevenson St is a small access road that serves fewer than a dozen houses and doesn’t even appear on official maps.
You drive into the property from Stevenson St into a wide drive and a double automatic garage. The actual address is 32 Northwood Rd.
The tri-level home is orientated to the north with full-width balconies on two levels and bifolds opening to an expansive outdoor entertaining area and lawn.
Jess Goodman, of Belle Property Lane Cove, said the home was on the doorstep to city buses and moments to Lane Cove village which offers a big choice of cafes, restaurants, shops and supermarkets.
“This is a family-friendly area and it is attracting people who are upsizing out of Neutral Bay and Wollstonecraft and the inner west,” he said.
This home also has a hilltop position and overlooks Lane Cove Golf Course.
On the ground floor entry level there is the main living room with fireplace, the deluxe Caesarstone kitchen with gas cooking, plus a dining room and a family room with doors that open up to the all-weather deck with barbecue kitchen and electronic awning.
Upstairs there are four bedrooms and two bathrooms, including an ensuite to the main bedroom. Two of the bedrooms open to the deep balcony facing north, and three of the bedrooms have built-ins.
On the lower ground floor there is a vast media or entertainment area that opens up to the alfresco area and the grass. This room could be a rumpus or media room, it has its own kitchenette area, so would work well for casual drinks or children’s parties.
Also on this lower level there is a large fifth bedroom, a shower and two spacious storerooms.
This home has stylish and timeless interiors including dark timber floors, high ornate ceilings and plantation shutters.
There is also ducted airconditioning for year-round comfort.
The home is due to go to live-streamed auction on April 4, with a guide of $2,600,000-$2,800,000, and inspection is by appointment only.
For more information contact Mr Goodman, as the current coronavirus crisis could bring changes to this plan.
