There are two ways people approach this house.  Everyone loves the location, the outside, the tropical pool set-up, but then they hate the inside.  This type of modern doesn’t row your boat.    Or you are the other party.  You can’t believe that house and that tropical garden are one and the same.   It’s modern house in the tropics bliss. Which one are you?

Mona Vale – or is it Byron Bay ?

w1200-h800-2012940267_2_pi_160720_063951107 Barranjoey Road, Mona Vale . (3 beds, 2 bath, 3 cars or 1 car and a really big boat)  woops yes, it’s on a main road but someone has to live here.   Let’s focus on the balcony and all those lovely palm trees.  Oh, and look, a view.

We are looking at this property as a potential bargain from a weird Sydney money point of view that is.

Maybe built a very tall tree house to enjoy it even more.

Feels tropical & holiday-like.

Basic.  Nothing offensive here just needs a bit more oomph.  No brown furniture prehaps.

Saddle up and enjoy the kitchen island.

This has such potential.  It has everything, from wardrobes to ceiling fans.

Bit of grass and blue sky and all’s right with the world.  A hot tub here could be perfect.

107 Barranjoey Rd

Reality strikes.  Main road with difficult driveway.  However, there are few bargains in Sydney so this could be one.
