“Gaelforce” Prized Deep Waterfront

At a time when the world is focusing on things closer to our hearts, and on the importance of connection, this home celebrates intimacy.

Set in arguably the finest deep waterfront location in Palm Beach, with jetty, boat shed, slipway and waterfront pool, “Gaelforce” is the pinnacle of living on Pittwater; a testament to the vendors’ vision, elegance and sympathetic design flair.

Arriving at “Gaelforce” is exciting yet calming. Pull up at the jetty in your yacht or cruiser, fly in via sea plane, or take the simple 1 hour trip from Sydney along the Northern Beaches to be welcomed by the glistening waters of Pittwater, a waterway of international standing. Either way, you will be embraced by “Gaelforce” and will immediately feel the beauty of everything Palm Beach has to offer.

Built in the 1940’s in the Spanish mission style, the vendors discovered the old home and knew immediately that this was it. Realising the indescribable mood of the house, they knew they had to keep it, to embrace and restore and support the original features, a brief which was met by Bellevarde Constructions Pty Ltd, arguably the best builders in Sydney for high end residential properties.

Beauty is everywhere you look and is not limited to the home itself. This property is collectively a work of art, from the design and construction to the fit out and furniture; and it will be sold almost in its entirety.

The interiors of “Gaelforce” were designed by Gael Boglione who is renowned for her aesthetic taste and design flair in all that she does, including beautiful Petersham Nurseries, famous destination in London. She brings a gentle approach and an ability for drawing out beauty in the simplest of things. Gael’s natural style, elegance and attention to detail are reflected in the ethos of the house.

The master bed frame is a bespoke commission from Instanbul artist Asli Tunca. It looks like coral emerging from the sea. There are vintage piece through the home, including leather forties dining chairs and Murano glass lamps.

The bathrooms have been fitted out with fixtures from Catchpole & Rye, and are a mix of reconditioned antiques and top quality bathware imported from England.

Lastly, it’s worth noting the wonderful Angophora trees. They are an original part of the site, irreplaceable and a unique part of the landscape that Gael insisted on keeping at all costs. The entire renovation extension work was carried out without cutting one branch.
