Are you impressed by the waterfront picture?  Wait, this is not about it being a waterfront house.   I’ll just leave all the interior shots for you to enjoy.   You just need to know it was built in 1962 and is currently for sale.

w1920-h1080-w1600-h1200-2012871149_1_pi_160615_034016.jpg

Fantasy Home moment.  Price? no object.  But let’s be a little picky.  We are looking at over $5.5 million.

9 Numa Street, Birchgrove

w1600-h1200-2012871149_2_pi_160615_034020Here’s a handy arrow.  Gosh that ferry looks close.

w1600-h1200-2012871149_3_pi_160615_034025I’m in love. It’s a toss up between the black stove and all those windows.

Kitchen itself looks a little old.  Need one of those funky taps, maybe black again?  The dishwasher is white, white?  who has white appliances these days?

w1600-h1200-2012871149_4_pi_160615_034016Built in 1913 and owned by one family for 50 years, it’s a rare look into a lovely family home.   I love the arts and craft timber work.  The black walls and details are a great anchor to the views.

w1600-h1200-2012871149_5_pi_160615_034018Al fresco on demand.  Doors have been pushed back for some clever open dining.  Love the  Icarus light shade.  Nice view back to living area.

w1600-h1200-2012871149_6_pi_160615_034023Sydney sandstone jigsaw walls, floorboards and handy exit to the outdoors.

w1600-h1200-2012871149_7_pi_160615_034016The winter balcony.  There are very few houses on the harbour with this amount of openness.  Maybe I speak too soon and some ferry comes blasting past or maybe a midnight party boat with John Farnham playing too loud.

w1600-h1200-2012871149_10_pi_160615_034016Honey, we bought a park. Is there enough lawn to warrant a ride-on mower?  The teenager in me is planning a swing over that tree.

w1600-h1200-2012871149_9_pi_160615_034025Dining under hanging rock.  White dresses and pan flutes required. Like your own private national park.

w1600-h1200-2012871149_8_pi_160615_034021Well, this just caps it off.  How many people can you fit on the lawn for New Year’s?

Birchgrove is already an incredible suburb this is just a great reason to leave the Eastern Suburb crowded harbour side and lie around on this lawn.
