Enjoying rare, near level access while imparting a sense of almost being in the trees this stunning home designed by acclaimed Architect Bruce Rickard offers a unique and inviting lifestyle that draws inspiration from the water, trees and beautiful natural landscape. Designed by Rickard for his own family, to be opened up in a way that hadn't been possible before; letting it, essentially, blend quite effortlessly into the surrounds and the quiet waters of Cowan Creek.

The coveted north east aspect of "Treetops" ensures that an abundance of winter sun is captured while minimising heat in summer. It benefits from its very own micro climate created by the design and cooling breezes off the water. The home offers quite distinct zones on easily accessible different levels as well as a completely separate pavilion that all flow effortlessly to the courtyard and feature swimming pool. It works in harmony with family living and entertaining on intimate and grand scales.

Clever and inspiring architecture sees a wonderful balance of open spaces and private retreats. The main living pavilion is incredibly versatile and can take on different forms in need. It's closed on two sides to the streetscape for optimum privacy while the remainder opens to the outside and the surrounds. To complement the existing residence the owners engaged Architects; Commonplace to create an additional area in keeping with the current design and this DA is being offered to the new owners.

Cottage Point is a unique destination a mere 35 minutes from the Harbour Bridge yet with a sense of being worlds away from the hustle and bustle of city living. This small and exclusive hamlet of only 52 homes is positioned in the tranquil and serene Kur-ring-gai Chase National Park with its rugged bushland and deep waterfront environment. The locale is home to its own motor yacht club, a kiosk and famed Cottage Point Inn. For those who enjoy boating each resident of Cottage Point is entitled to apply for a mooring in calm, still waterways. Life will feel like a permanent holiday for not only you but also family and friends.
