If there’s one thing that Sydney is famous for around the world, it’s the Harbour City’s beautiful beaches and immaculate warmer months to enjoy the sun and sand. While the main beaches see thousands of tourists flock to them, the recently listed 84 Clareville Avenue, Sandringham, offers access to a set of more private beaches that will see you sunning with the locals.
Located near the mouth of the George River in Botany Bay, the large property spans an impressive 1,121m² and faces directly onto the sparkling waters near Dolls Point Beach. While not backing directly onto the beach, the rear of the property actually opens onto a stunning walking trail that continues north all the way to the spectacular Brighton-Le-Sands Beach.
The location is stunning, but the main residence more than holds its own if you’re looking to impress visitors, spanning two levels that contain no less than five bedrooms, three bathrooms and four car parks. In addition to the compelling features of the home, the property also boasts a modest front garden complete with a deck for enjoying the afternoon, and a large back garden with a pool, alfresco dining area and shed.
Upon entering the home, you’ll be greeted by a large entrance hall that immediately reminds you where you are, with straight-line views through the home and out to the waters beyond. Somewhat unusually, and perhaps speaking to a second level renovation at some point since its original 1840s construction date, all five of the bedrooms are found on the ground level, as well as the kitchen and living space.
Upstairs, however, you’ll find an enormous entertaining space, which could easily double as a home cinema, made all the better for a fully functional wet bar immediately next to it. You’ll also find a modest study and a large casual living area, which opens via large double doors out onto one of the more spectacular balconies you’re likely to see this week.
The balcony has more than enough space for an afternoon of Sunday spritz cocktails with a dozen of your closest friends, with stunning East facing views over the water that make it the perfect spot to enjoy the sunrise with a coffee too. If you love views of Sydney’s waters, you can’t help but admire what the balcony has to offer.
It’s been nearly a decade since the property last hit the market in 2013, demonstrating something of what a special proposition this home is, both in terms of location just 30 minutes from the CBD and the natural beauty it offers. The recently listed 84 Clareville Avenue, Sandringham, is represented by Gavan Property with a guide of between $8.5 million and $9 million, currently seeking expressions of interest.
