Barely a five minute walk to the patrolled surf beach out front of the Surf Lifesaving Club and basking in a wonderful north east aspect, this handsome Stephen Kidd designed beachside residence captures the true essence of a modern day beach house across two floors of casual sophistication.
A white rendered fence spans the street side elevation and an iconic coastal Pandanus presides over the sweet fragrance of frangipani. An audio-visual intercom invites you along the aqua blue waters of the glass fenced saltwater pool, a fixed metal umbrella throws shade over a wading platform and twin gates frame an aggregate drive to a cedar door garage with sealed floor.
A podium level patio expands the garden level approach to a distinctive pivoting door in the entry and a central wall semi-isolates a large rumpus room with a wall of built-ins to house all the books, games and media. Three bedrooms and bathroom fan out to rear gardens and a laundry room has direct access to a drying yard.
A glass balustrade timber staircase hugs the wall to an upper floor awash in natural light under soaring vj lined ceilings. Bi-fold doors concertina to engage a thirty square metre insulated roofed deck complete with modular decking, down lighting, built in barbecue/wok station, rainwater tap and refrigeration.
Banks of floor depth glass louvres catch a coastal breeze and an ocean view south. The patina of hardwood floors encases a mighty stone waterfall edge island bench in a dream kitchen fitted with Bosch gas and electric cooking, Hansa taps/zip filtered rainwater, integrated fridge/dishwasher, soft close drawer systems and generous pantry space. A serene bedroom to the rear of the house is serviced by a bathroom and a nearby powder room is ideal when entertaining.
The gorgeous main bedroom with walk through robes and unique floor to ceiling tiled ensuite greets the day through a wall of clear and frosted louvres to the north east.
Utilizing the elevated level land to best advantage, the house sits well back on the tropically landscaped allotment fringed by hedging lilly pilly, elegant fronds of bamboo palm in concrete planter boxes, Timor black bamboo and a swathe of Sir Walter buffalo grass.
