Spacious Entertainer in a Tranquil Setting
When it comes to family friendly living there are a handful of homes in Balgowlah Heights that are consistently on everyone’s radar. The small strip of homes at the entrance of Lewis Street rank high on the list of top 10 homes for land size, with 1 Lewis sitting on an incredible 1,396sqm slice of the Northern Beaches.
Being offered for the first time in almost 30 years, 1 Lewis is a perfect example of why this small cluster of homes is so tightly held. Enjoying a perfect balance of work, rest and play, it is easy to see why the current homeowners never felt the desire to leave.
When it comes to the benefits of living on one of Balgowlah Height’s largest privately owned land holdings it is easy to grasp as there is space for multiple cars, multiple living and dining zones, a pool with outdoor alfresco and kitchenette, and the most amazing lawn of over 500sqm for tennis court, basketball court, soccer pitch, cricket pitch or as you see fit.
By way of accommodation the bedrooms are filled with natural light and enjoy the added benefit of an elevated position which capture the afternoon coastal sea breeze each day. The Master bedroom suite includes an ensuite, a depth of wardrobes, built-in study and Juliette balcony for perfect sunset viewings across the city skyline and across to Middle Harbour.
Having gone through an intensive renovation lead by local Architect Ben Cooper, the home was expanded with no expense spared on the quality of construction, while keeping the integrity of the original design at heart. With the client brief entirely focused on ensuring the home welcomed natural light from all corners, framed the private landscaped gardens from each window, and created a flow for large family and friend gatherings across all lawns and entertainments decks throughout. It is obvious the outcome is a longstanding success.
Like all great creations, when this canvas is this large the artwork can be limitless. Just a short stroll down Lewis Street will give you a strong indication of just how creative the next redesign can be. With the current home stunningly presented and cared for meticulously, there is no rush to rework the home just yet; now featuring all the modern amenities by way of air-conditioning and 31 solar panels (12.2kw) powering the entire house – the solar gives the homeowners a monthly credit into their bank account and includes a Tesla charge bay for Tesla cars.
Opportunities like these are rare and do not come up often in Balgowlah Heights. In a world where space is king, and beauty is queen, 1 Lewis will be popular on Auction Day and an opportunity not to be missed if you are actively looking for a forever home.
