What we love
The best of the beach, bush and the Bay, commandingly nestled on a massive 808sqm (approx.) corner block with a tranquil Ethel Street frontage. Designed by award winning Architect Peter Doggett, this exceptional 4 bedroom 3 bathroom two-storey family home is what coastal dreams are made of. The stunning outdoor setting is the headline act here, comprising of a huge alfresco with a built-in bar and barbecue, nonchalantly overlooking a sparkling-blue below-ground swimming pool and its neighbouring gazebo deck of relaxation.
Elsewhere, right next to the wine cellar lies a commodious downstairs games room with enough space for both a pool table and lounge setting by the bar, whilst the lower level also plays host to a Hamptons-inspired kitchen that separates the sunken meals area from a sunken family room, a rear verandah that can be accessed directly from the family room, a powder room, laundry and a generous fourth or “guest” bedroom with its very own private ensuite bathroom. Upstairs, an expansive balcony with a view up Beach Road and toward the coast can be accessed from both a grandiose master-bedroom suite and a versatile sitting room via two separate sets of double doors – the latter living space doubling as the perfect study, home office, library, sitting room or even a fifth bedroom. The master itself is bathed in luxury and boasts an enormous walk-in wardrobe, as well as a marvellous ensuite bathroom with a free-standing bathtub, a shower, toilet, twin “his and hers” stone vanities and everything else – pure class!

As far as locations go, this one is as good as it gets!
