38 Stuart Street, Manly is on the market for $16.5-$18m.

A decisive title? Maybe. But we'll kick it off by saying that this is the only absolute beachfront private property in all of Manly. Therefore, the view and positioning of this home is an absolute winner. But this accolade only lays the foundation for the rest of the house, which is as pretty as the Little Manly beach it backs on to. 

If we could describe this spot (one of just three exclusive properties on the beachfront) in a single word it would be: sanctuary. Within this sanctuary, there are five bedrooms across four floors of luxe design living. To access these separate stories, occupants can utilise the private elevator that stops on every floor.

Although the home is stocked with plenty of bedrooms and sleeping places, the highlight of the interior is its free-flowing emphasis on true coastal living. Regardless of the season, there is always a sense of natural beckoning to the outside deck, which leads to a private entrance on the way to beachfront.

After a big day of yachting, fishing, or sipping on Aperol Spritz, this Manly house has a dedicated home theatre room and a wine cellar to come home to. What more could you possibly need?

The house itself is still relatively young, boasting some immaculate contemporary design that highlights a very clean, timber-meets-sandstone appeal that is undeniably the way to go when it comes to waterfront living. The long backyard and unassuming yet welcoming front of the home are accentuated by vibrant and well-kept gardens that reinforce a sense of relaxation.

38 Stuart Street has price expectations of $16.5-$18m through Rowe Partners Real Estate. Watch the virtual tour below.
