This heritage villa in Stanley Bay comes with a cute little guest cottage

A picture-perfect street side aspect sees this charming weatherboard home located behind a secure white gate.

The current owners and neighbourhood residents alike adore the exceptional sense of community within Stanley Bay – Glen Road in particular is a truly magic place to raise a family. Stanley Bay School is just a quick walk along the street and doubles as a place to play and swim, while the local wharf is an easy stroll away and offers a 15-minute ferry trip to the CBD.

Originally crafted around 1910, the home is rich with local heritage and the character-filled, signature design elements of the villa era. Exceptionally high ceilings, sash windows, timber floors and French doors have been complemented, updated and enhanced with fresh, contemporary interior finishes, including soft grey carpets, a white & grey wall palette, chic light fittings and feature wallpaper. The not-so visible hard work has also recently been done, with a new roof, new paint inside and out, re-wiring and central heating throughout the home.

There are three bedrooms located off the entrance hall – one has an ensuite while the master opens out to the sun-splashed balcony. The main bathroom is very spacious and has a large shower and claw-foot bathtub. The rear of the original home was extended and expanded to create the light-filled, open plan kitchen, dining and living room. The gas fireplace has feature pressed tin surrounds and is a functional work of art – a nod to the traditional ceilings seen in many local villas. French doors open out to the rear patio which is enveloped in feature brick work and makes for private and sheltered alfresco entertaining. The large lawn beyond has a kids’ playground and purpose-built spa pool platform.

The completely separate, legal sleep out at the front of the property has been finished to the same exemplary standard as the main house. It has its own living area, bedroom and designer bathroom – taking the property’s total to four bedrooms and three bathrooms. It presents excellent accommodation for a myriad of visitors, including long term guests, extended family, an au pair or lucky teenager.

This exceptional location and neighbourhood are all about the lifestyle, which will appeal to families eager to experience and enjoy everything Stanley Point has to offer. The incredible potential of the guest cottage is another huge drawcard, along with the home’s rich historical charm.
