A heritage listed cottage in a quiet street with Pittwater views. The architect designed cottage is a light-filled extension of an old sandstone garage. Something to eat & drink? It's two minutes walk away. Swim or picnic? A short walk to Clareville or Paradise beaches. Stretch your legs or cycle and you'll be at Avalon surf beach in a few minutes. Or just relax on the steps of your private cottage watching the sunset over Pittwater.

The space
Little Ashlar is a heritage listed sandstone garage converted into a unique, architect designed one bedroom apartment. Flooded wth natural light, the striking angles of the modern living/dining/kitchen extension fit harmoniously with the restored sandstone bedroom & bathroom. Comfortable, spacious and absolutely one of a kind.
The thick, irregular sandstone walls of the bedroom make it a truly special, private space, with queen sized bed, ceiling fan and modern conveniences like USB power sockets each side of the bed.
The adjoining bathroom has a generous shower with wide head, heated floor, heated towel rail and stone basin. Shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, etc. are all provided.
A few steps lead down from the bedroom/bathroom to the modern timber floored open plan living/dining/kitchen area with light flooding in from high windows and large double glazed bifold doors which open out to the steps and garden.
The living area is comfortably furnished with thick Persian rug, generous leather sofa, antique chair, new Samsung TV and Yamaha Soundbar. The adjoining dining area with sandstone feature wall is beautifully lit for romantic dinners at the antique table. The dining table also makes a comfortable workspace.
The well equipped kitchen has everything you need including oven, microwave, gas cooktop, dishwasher and coffee pod machine. There is also a washer drier in the adjoining laundry area.
The lawn area has a small table and chairs and the steps down to this area are also great for sitting while drinking your coffee, watching the boats on Pittwater and listening to the birds in the trees.

Where you’ll be

Avalon Beach, New South Wales, Australia

Avalon Beach is a leafy beachside outpost of Sydney with the ocean on one side and the calm waters of Pittwater on the other. Little Ashlar is on a quiet hillside street with cafe, restaurant, bottle shop and take away only a 2 minute walk down the street. We are surrounded by tall spotted gums with views through the trees to Pittwater, a stone's throw away. The street is a dead end, leading up the hill and is popular with local walkers.
