Villa Manly

10 guests · 4 bedrooms · 4.5 baths
Boats bob gently in the harbor as sunshine glints off railings fronting this glassy contemporary home tucked in amid Sydney’s northern beaches. The whole villa is oriented toward the water, with terraces on each of its 4 levels facing the coast. Follow the Manly scenic walkway to shallow, swimmable Forty Baskets Beach and join locals on the ferry to downtown Sydney.
Watch sailboats and dinghies from a lounger on the terrace by the private pool and hot tub, open a bottle of wine to sip at the planter-lined alfresco sitting area, and pick up fresh produce to toss on the barbecue for dinner at the shaded outdoor table. A playroom is available for kids to claim as their own, and an elevator connects the villa’s 4 stories.
Open the slide-away glass wall to let cool breezes sweep off the water and into the open-plan great room. Two sitting areas face the harbor, and a breakfast bar faces the fully equipped kitchen. In a separate dining area, wicker seating lends a casual, beachy feel.
Walk 50 meters from the villa to Forty Baskets Beach, a local favorite with a netted swimming area and a walkway kids can cannonball off. It’s just one spot along the Manly scenic walkway, which has nearly 10 kilometers of gorgeous coastal views. Board a water taxi from the beach or take the ferry to shopping and dining in central Sydney.
