For sale - a real sailor's house


This is a charming and unique waterfront neo-gothic villa with a difference. The original house dates to the 1870s and was built by sailor Captain G Mackenzie who lived here from 1921-1933. He introduced a number of marine features into the house such masts supporting the outside covered area and a number of porthole windows. The additions since add to the character of the property.

The downstairs comprises a bathroom, laundry and kitchen plus three downstairs living areas, one of which has often been a bedroom. The front room has stunning sea views towards the city. Upstairs there is a bathroom and three further bedrooms, two of which overlook the water, whilst the third has a small deck. There are wooden floors throughout, panelled ceilings and period details, including historic leaded windows, featuring a variety of sailing vessels.

Outside there is an intimate and secluded courtyard area and cottage garden. A covered walkway, originally used for drying sails and with outside shower, leads to a garage and to outside steps up to a self-contained studio flat, again with stunning views over the water.

Swim or kayak from your front door, walk 200m to a sandy beach or walk straight onto North Head reserve through the Navy Museum. This special home is entirely unique.
