A view over the bay and an eye to the future

A commanding setting on the highest vantage point affords sweeping views over Iron Cove Bay from the upper level of this freestanding 1920s home. With only ever two families in ownership, the property has been sympathetically extended over the years and features a sunny poolside entertaining area. Originally home to Ken Beames, Australias foremost optics and telescope maker in the 20th century, the property still features the engineering studio where he created his groundbreaking work along with the worlds largest mounted telescope in the 1930s.
