"The Dome" was designed by Stan Symonds and built in the early 1960's. It has been featured in Architectural publications and exhibitions, Form to Formless at Sydney's Customs House being the most recent, and has just now been restored to its former 60's modernist glory, completely refurnished and refurbished.

The Dome is available for short to medium term stays year round. We are very flexible and aim to accommodate all requests, but require a 7 night minimum. The nightly Rate may vary during peak times.

The property has a dome ceiling, double storey floor to ceiling glass and unique mezzanine design. Upstairs comprises entrance room and 2 bedrooms (main with Queen and second with King Single with full mattress trundle that converts to Kingsize bed), both with balconies and extensive water and bushland views. There is also a study, walk in wardrobe and full bathroom upstairs.

A spiral staircase leads downstairs to large open plan dining with Parker table comfortably seating 8 - 10 and sunken lounge area with 48" flatscreen TV and Bose sound system. There is a glass fronted combustion fireplace and gas heater. The fully equipped kitchen features Bosch appliances, dishwasher and a seperate pantry room. There is also a laundry with Bosch frontloading washing machine and a separate second toilet. Glass sliding doors open onto tiled outside entertaining area with long table and benches seating up to 12. The new stainless steel BBQ has four burners plus a side burner.

The tiled area flows to a securely fenced grassed lawn and outside pond area. The pond is a feature of "The Dome", with an interior section allowing viewing and feeding of the resident Carp and Native Bass.

Views from The Dome are spectacular, encompassing surrounding bushland and across to Sugarloaf Bay and Middle Harbour.

This peaceful bushland setting, with its many native bird species, is only 40 minutes from Sydney CBD and 10 minutes from Manly and its ocean and harbour beaches.

Undercover parking is provided for 2 cars.

Take the free Hop Skip bus to Stocklands Shopping Centre Balgowlah, then

onto Manly or Clontarf. The city can be reached by ferry from Manly or by bus from the Wakehurst Parkway only 5 minutes walk away.

Seaforth local shops offer an excellent dining selection, or head to Manly for even more choice.

Walk 5 mins up the road to a well equipped, shaded children's Playground with picnic table.

Bushwalk from Seaforth Oval down to Bantry Bay, Wakehurst Parkway down to Manly Dam, The Spit to Manly via Dobroyd or explore the tidal areas around Middle Harbour.

There are also Bike Tracks to Manly, and Mountain Bike Tracks down to and around Manly Dam.

Fairlight and Dellwood Beaches (in Sydney Harbour) are accessible by bus or a 10 minute drive and both excellent for snorkelling - as is Shelley Beach (Cabbage Tree Bay) in Manly.

A visit to Manly Sea Life Sanctuary Aquarium (and the adjacent free Manly Art Gallery) is highly recommended.

New Years Eve Fireworks are held in Manly Cove, with many vantage points along the harbourside.

Unfortunately, due to the open balcony mezzanine bedrooms and unfenced internal pond, "The Dome' is unsuitable for toddlers.

We look forward to welcoming you to "The Dome".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Recommended In January we stayed at The Dome and had a wonderful experience. The view from The Dome is beautiful, the interior is gorgeous, the home owner is fantastic and very welcoming! Only a short drive to manly, a stunning area, with Ferries to the city and other iconic places you may wish to visit! We will be visiting again :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended I regularly visit Sydney on business and I am delighted to have discovered The Dome. The property is oozing with character and is one of the best I have stayed in. A lot of thought has gone into the design and the house is spacious and airy. The Dome is tucked away in its own enclave offering excellent privacy. A car is essential but Manly and the ferry into the city are only minutes away from Seaforth, which is an attractive and quiet suburb.
