Fabulous 1960’s Home Headlined by Breathtaking Coastal Views

5 4 3

Lovers of coastal living will adore the pinch yourself position of this landmark home offering direct access via the Merewether Beach tunnel to the sand, surf and ocean baths. With panoramic views taking in Merewether, Dixon Park and Bar Beaches as well as sunrises and the moonlight across the Pacific Ocean as a mesmerising backdrop, it typifies the best of 1960's architecture with its understated exterior profile, brick veneer construction and flexible dual level floorplan. Tear your eyes away from the views for a second and you'll find a unique family home that promises a lifestyle only imagined.

Built 1969 for prominent physician Dr Le Gay Brereton on land previously owned by the Brambles family and now on offer for only the second time, the home enjoys a wonderful sense of privacy with its elevated position and unique U-shape that creates a wing for the living quarters and one for the bedroom accommodation. The kitchen and laundry have undergone an extensive upgrade, while lounge, dining and casual living spaces are interchangeable to suit family dynamics. Downstairs incorporates a rumpus, bedroom, ensuite and internal access from the garage. Presenting a wonderful retreat for teenagers, guests or perhaps even a nanny, this downstairs area provides endless flexibility. Capping off the credentials of this striking home is a wonderfully private alfresco entertaining area and fenced gardens.
