There are a limited number of deep waterfront properties in Palm Beach enjoying immediate & panoramic views across Pittwater. Just a handful have a waterfront pool & only 3 occupy a double block. Boasting both rare attributes, 'Sandy Point Lodge' is a jewel in the crown.
Believed to date from the 1940's & sensitively restored by the current owners, it is the last of these double waterfronts that has not been subject to a multi-million dollar redevelopment, rendering the property all the more attractive as it purveys a myriad of options for the next owners.
Standing on an unrepeatable 1075sqm approx. site with tropical palms, fragrant frangipani & colourful camillia, the garden enjoys level lawn areas & delightful stone terraces. Steps meander down to the resort-like 38m wide waterfront with 10m pool, plus glorious sandstone surrounds, lawned area & even steps to your own little sandy beach, which kids love. For the boat owner there is a ramp & pontoon with 2.5m minimum depth, a berth for a tender & berthing poles for up to 20m craft plus a permanent mooring just 15m away (s.t.t)
Impressive & delightful, the boatshed is a romantic waterfront guest bedroom retreat epitomising the laid-back Palm Beach lifestyle. For ease of waterfront entertaining there's a kitchenette with dishwasher, bar fridge & sink, plus private shower room and a built-in American stainless steel Viking Professional BBQ on the terrace. A hidden store room is ideal for fishing gear, life jackets & other boating essentials.
The home itself comprises 2 huge double bedrooms, a single bedroom & 2 bathrooms ï¿½ one is an updated original art deco bathroom & the other a glamorous brand new ensuite to the downstairs bedroom, sympathetic to the style & era of the home.
The charm & character of the home are undeniable. There's an ambient entrance foyer, plus an open plan living and dining area flowing to a lovely deck with spectacular 180 degree views from Careel Bay & across the Iluka Road beach to Sandy Point.
The stainless steel kitchen has a Kleenmaid oven & 6 burner gas cooktop + Miele dishwasher which ensure the smooth running of every occasion, from casual to formal, with a lean towards ease of functionality.
'Sandy Point Lodge' was last offered for sale 15 years ago. The current owners consider themselves lucky to have lived at such a rare and beautiful property for so long, enjoying the ultimate in space, privacy and waterfront lifestyle. It is now time to hand over the baton.
