Designed with a distinguished grace, this 2 level home provides luxurious proportions and a sophisticated lifestyle.
A large corner site provides the luxury of space without imposing on privacy; quality brush fencing and well established trees seclude the home from passersby yet still allows an extra wide driveway to park up to six vehicles within the boundary of the plot (2 within the double garage). Vast grassed yard space plus secluded courtyard areas offer private entertaining space while inside a beautiful sense of light and space is afforded by huge box windows (double glazed and some up to 3.5m wide). Multiple corner set triple stacking doors allow an easy flow between indoors and alfresco rooms on both levels, while tall ceilings also add to abundant light that fills the clean lined, crisp white interior. A touch of the exotic is added by antique Asian gateways within the sculptural gardens and various feature light fittings; an element of uniqueness.
A large open plan space upstairs forms the core living zone where a large and quality fitted galley kitchen connects to a semi enclosed balcony. Stacking doors completely eliminate walls between the dining, lounge and alfresco area extending living space even further. These stacking doors are fitted with “E Glass” for highly rated insulation and solar control. A long Caesarstone island and wall set benches continue on through the butler’s pantry (concealing the fridge), while frosted glass windows and decorative metallic tiles form the splashback for a distinctive touch above the commercial sized upright cooker. A grand and extensive master suite is also on the top level where double entry doors allow a connection with the living zone. A large dressing room is well fitted while the ensuite affords a private toilet, huge shower and double floating vanity with Caesarstone top.
Formal entrance to the home (via Golf Links Road) houses the beautifully polished solid timber stair case and is lined with book shelving, a great spot for either a library or study. This room forms the link between the 2 segregated areas; a doorway can be locked and concealed, thus providing direct entry to upstairs without requiring access to the remainder of the ground floor.
Downstairs accommodation consists of 3 bedrooms all generously sized with 2 featuring dual BIR’s and the third a single. A central bathroom and combined laundry/kitchenette are adjacent offering access to rear courtyard space. Secondary kitchen facilities create easy outdoor catering to the lower alfresco deck plus the added convenience of self-contained accommodation. Mimicking the upstairs layout stack sliding doors connect the large living space and kitchenette with an alfresco room which acts as the second entrance to the home.
Practical luxuries within the property include immense storage (including under stair cavity suitable as cellar space), ducted vacuuming, zoned ducted heating & cooling, upstairs powder room, security system and immense secure car parking.
Enjoying the perfect central location for both living and holidaying in this idyllic coastal village, the clever design can be segregated for dual occupancy (perfect for holiday rental, or families with adult children or regular guests), yet still flows effortlessly for easy family living.
