A slice of The Hamptons in the heart of Balgowlah sitting between Manly Beach and The Spit, this family home is packed full of contemporary features behind its fresh facade.
The recently completed two-storey semi at 41A Lodge St, was designed by Eaton Architects with interiors by Mia Lake and includes a whole lot of house in its 375sqm footprint.
Free-flowing from the front door through to the backyard, the first floor layout features a formal lounge room upon entry complete with a gas fireplace for cosy winter evenings and a large covered balcony ideal for soaking up cocktail hour in warmer weather.
Towards the rear of the same level a casual living area combines a family-friendly kitchen and dining space.
The marble kitchen includes a grand central island bench, a Gaggenau gas cooktop, wide window splashback capturing loads of natural light and a handy butler’s pantry.
The adjoining sitting area can be opened right up to an undercover deck. The internal living room has an integrated bar fridge and the outdoor room has a built-in barbecue so all bases are covered.
Beyond the deck there is enough room on the level yard to kick a football or play a little cricket as well as an in-ground pool.
All four bedrooms upstairs have large windows and built-in wardrobes.
Additional features include European oak floors downstairs and lush wool carpet upstairs, a study nook and a tandem garage with internal access and storage.
