Designed by acclaimed architect Keith Cottier, this breathtaking residence at 88 Louisa Road, Birchgrove has been crafted to celebrate the beauty of its absolute waterfront setting. Nestled on approximately 305sqm of land with approximately 330sqm of internal space cascading over four levels, the home captures panoramic northerly views of the ever-changing harbour spectacle. Superb deepwater facilities create a true paradise for the boat lover.

A recreational haven

Moor your large vessel at your doorstep with your own deepwater marina berth, accessed via a shared jetty and pontoon. A sundeck at the water’s edge provides a glorious setting for soaking up some rays and taking in uninterrupted 180-degree views while a sauna invites you to relax and unwind. The home’s lower storey flows seamlessly to a manicured level lawn where you can host your guests and marvel at the harbour backdrop.

A sublime family environment

The residence encompasses three bedrooms and three bathrooms, including a stylish master suite with an ensuite, walk-through robe and private balcony. Secluded on the lower level, the expansive third bedroom has been set up as a self-contained studio with a kitchenette, an opulent freestanding marble bath, private side entrance and concertina doors inviting in both the view and the breeze. The space is generous enough to create a fourth bedroom if desired.

Infused with warmth and elegance

The entire second floor is devoted to entertaining, both indoors and out, with an airy free-flowing floorplan. Vast living and dining space extends to a Tuscan-inspired internal courtyard with a soothing water feature, while the north-facing family area opens to a wide loggia-style harbour-view terrace for year-round alfresco living. At its heart lies a kitchen sure to impress the most fastidious chef, appointed with a bold stainless steel breakfast island.

Find privacy and sanctuary

A number of additional living spaces allow you to find peace and seclusion in a quiet corner of the home. Curl up with a good book in the library lined with bookshelves or work from home in the comfort of your own office complete with an integrated desk. With 5 Velux windows and air conditioning, the wonderfully spacious converted attic retreat makes a perfect play area, media room or space to indulge your hobbies.

Carefully curated spaces

Every element of the home has been thoughtfully considered to create an ambience that’s sophisticated yet relaxed, much like its setting. Hardwood floors add warmth and elegance, a wood-burning fireplace and reverse-cycle air-conditioning keep you comfortable and double garaging features convenient internal access. Abundant storage is found right throughout the residence.

A peninsula setting of idyllic beauty

Occupying a dress-circle position opposite historic Birchgrove Oval, this beloved family residence is just 450m from the ferry so you can enjoy a picturesque journey into the city. Stroll through the park to the Birchgrove Tennis Courts, take leisurely harbourside walks, visit one of the peninsula’s welcoming local pubs or head up to Darling Street and explore its lively culinary scene and unique specialty stores.
