Architectural opera

Architectural aficionados will love the clean lines and simplicity of this modernist 10 Lentara Road, Bayview home designed by Peter Hall of Hall, Anderson and Bowe in 1972. Hall is known as the architect who took over from Jorn Utzon to complete the Sydney Opera House after the latter's contentious departure. Hall was commissioned by the original owners of the stunning 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom home with space for 5 cars; since then, the property has only had two owners. Current owner Cathy Richardson has lived there with her family for over 30 years. With her two daughters now adults, she is keen to downsize and says she will miss the magnificent view right up Pittwater to Lion Island and beyond. With a saltwater swimming pool, entertaining terraces and floor-to-ceiling glass in many rooms, the home is designed for indoor/outdoor living. "It's amazing at all times of the year," says Cathy. "We also love the simple, clean lines and the open plan of the house. We loved it from the word go."

Expressions of interest through Michael King of Di Jones Pittwater close May 21, with a price guide of $5-$5.5 million.

Penthouse-style living

The three-bedroom, two-bathroom unit has space for two cars and Jan says the view is mesmerising. "You can see to the heads and there is always a lot of activity on the water," she says. "Fairlight Pool is only a two-minute walk. And you can walk to Manly in under 15 minutes. Plus it's only a 20-minute ferry ride into one of the most beautiful cities in the world!"

DOUBLE DELUXE: 75 & 75A Rickard Road, North Narrabeen.

When Shawn Bradstreet and his brother Darren found an old rundown fibro shack in North Narrabeen back in 2017, they knew they could turn it into something special. The duo are both builders and business partners. Together, they developed the site and have transformed it into 75 and 75A Rickard Road, two brand spanking new dwellings that are now up for sale. "We didn't hold back regarding the size of the rooms," says Shawn. "We wanted it to be a home where, no matter how many people are living there, they all like the size of their bedrooms." In addition to the main house, there is a separate two-bedroom cottage that can work for in-law accommodation or a teenagers' retreat.
