‘Some people call this the most exclusive pocket of the northern beaches and, while I’ve sold some amazing properties here, this has to be one of the best, with direct north access and so sheltered’ agent Cherie Humel told domain.com.au.
There’s 822sqm of landscaped tropical gardens to enjoy, along with amazing sea views which stretch from Shelly and Manly beaches to the ocean’s horizon and as far as the Central Coast.
‘Flowing across three levels with multiple living spaces flowing effortlessly to sunlit seaside terraces, it is poised directly above the crystal-clear waters of Cabbage Tree Bay with its beautifully landscaped tropical gardens cascading down to where Shelly Beach meets the water,’ the property description states.

Award winning Sydney architect Vince Squillace extended and transformed what was once a Californian bungalow into a open plan living masterpiece in 2004.
He still describes then home as one of the best projects he’s ever done.
The glass embraced contemporary retreat with lofty ceilings has every conceivable luxury, from lavish limestone bathrooms and downstairs powder room to a whole floor home office and integrated self-contained flat.
The lounge room with gas fireplace flows onto a secluded tropical deck, the family room is equipped with full kitchenette while the CaesarStone island kitchen opens up to the central deck.
‘Lives are changed by a property like this,’ Ms Humel says in a promotional YouTube video for the home.

The current owners admit they will miss the place they’ve called home for the last six years.
‘To have this kind of space in the middle of Manly is so unexpected,’ the owner told domain.com.au.
‘We always had a lot of room and gardens, so we loved this immediately. It’s really easy living in an extraordinary part of the world, with Shelly Beach as our backyard.’
The home will be auctioned on July 6.
