The SpaceRare, secluded deep waterfront cottage surrounded by the picturesque Ku-Ring-Gai National Park.
Step back in time to when life was simpler, when people had stimulating conversations instead of texting emojee’s, attended elaborate dinner party’s instead of going to a restaurant then played cards or board games like "Twister" till the wee hours of the morning.
Romantic. Serene. Private. Right on the water. The perfect getaway.
The house has a beautiful lawn by the water, shaded by a Jacaranda Tree with one of the last remaining private tidal sea pools on the Hawkesbury.
Relax on the verandah with the water so close, you would think you are on a boat.
Facing NorthWest, gaze across the deepest fjord in the Southern Hemisphere at the spectacular beauty that is the Ku-Ring-Gai National Park - thousands of hectares of untouched, virgin bushland.
Lie on the pontoon on a summers night and count the shooting stars amongst the endless starry background, unhindered by civilisations lights.
This classic late 60’s Cottage will not disappoint you, with its comfortable, relaxed layout and modern conveniences.
