Luxurious Residence with Stunning Harbour Views

Welcome to “Forneth,” a magnificent piece of history dating back to 1916, tastefully renovated throughout, now available for rental. This exceptional home seamlessly blends the timeless charm of a bygone era with the modern comforts desired by today’s families. Spanning three levels, “Forneth” offers a multitude of flexible living arrangements and presents breathtaking views of the harbour, the iconic Heads, and the endless horizon.

Historic Elegance Meets Modern Luxury

The moment you step inside, you’ll be captivated by the exquisite Federation era detailing that graces this home. From the ornate three-meter-high decorated ceilings to the intricate fretwork, plate rails, leadlight windows, elegant chandeliers, and a beautiful fireplace, every corner exudes a sense of timeless elegance. The grand living and dining areas are perfect for entertaining in style, while multiple casual family zones seamlessly extend both indoors and outdoors.

A Haven of Serenity and Views

“Forneth” boasts not one, but three balconies, each offering its unique perspective on the stunning surroundings. Additionally, there’s a hidden gem—an enchanting gazebo nestled within the landscaped gradient, providing an oasis-like hideaway with panoramic views. Whether you seek peaceful solitude or space for outdoor gatherings, this property delivers.

A Terrace for Every Occasion

The expansive front terrace with its mesmerizing views beckons for endless moments of relaxation or entertaining. Whether you prefer alfresco cooking, dining under the stars, lounging in the sun, or cultivating a potted garden, there’s ample room to bring your outdoor living dreams to life. And to elevate the experience, the north facing entertainer’s terrace includes seating (with firepit) and spa overlooking Sydney Heads and 180 degrees of ocean and sunsets.

Amenities Beyond Compare

Among the many impressive inclusions, the home offers a double garage, a recently renovated kitchen with wine fridge, and even a sauna. Central air conditioning ensures year-round comfort, making this home a true sanctuary.

Prime Location

While “Forneth” is a world of its own, the neighbourhood is equally enticing. A leisurely stroll takes you to Fairlight Beach, perfect for sun-soaked days by the water. Additionally, turn left and the scenic walkway delivers you to Manly and the Ferry in mere minutes, allowing easy access to the vibrant heart of Sydney, or turn right and head to dog friendly North Harbour Reserve and coffee.
