The only thing prettier than this home's art deco frontage is its view. It offers direct access to Gunnamatta Bay, and is located on one of Cronulla's finest, most private spots. For the fortunate owner, the backyard provides an extremely special, and rare, place to unwind, entertain and appreciate one of Sydney's best beaches. You can literally step down from the stone retaining wall to the sand or the water, depending on the tide.
The large land size and stunning address mean that the property's owners are currently looking for offers over $4.05 million. As well as the land's foundation features, the property offers a cute original home and separate studio. The home's façade is in the P&O style, which seems particularly appropriate for the location – it would be a shame to demolish it, and any new house built on the site would do well to incorporate the current form.
For those with the cash for it, though, the house offers the prospect of a seriously great beach house – the beautiful cobbled path leading to the house gives it a touch of whimsy, and the house's timber beams are perfect for the rustic beach look. While a renovation would make it pop, simply brushing up on some of the corners and a coat of paint would make the house a perfect getaway.
