This home provides a lot more than first meets the eye. Not only is the footprint of the home impressive at approx 300sqm but the block size will also delight at 833sqm – and then there are those water glimpses out to the ocean from the back of the property. The home is located in a private and quiet location bordering a small reserve which provides access to the main bus line and a short cut to the Marina.
Recent upgrades are numerous and create a home with contemporary design and decor that is perfect for the way families live today. The open plan expansive kitchen, dining and lounge areas create an inviting space that will surely be the hub of the home. This area flows easily out through large floor to ceiling glass doors, to the backyard and undercover pergola entertaining area. The engineered timber floating floors are practical but also generate a sense of sophistication. Directly above this space is an upper level covered terrace that creates a second outdoor entertaining space with its own power, gas connection with hot and cold water and of course water views.
The home has great natural light, has been recently painted and new carpet fitted throughout. Ducted air conditioning is a special feature as is the new gourmet gas stove cooktop & rangehood, new oven and new dishwasher – just waiting to be used for the next big celebration. BIRs are provided in three of the bedrooms with the master suite having the all important WIR and ensuite. A second living zone houses a cozy gas fireplace for those cool winter nights.
There is also potential due to the incredible size of the block to further enhance the alfresco area with addition of a swimming pool or granny flat (pending all relevant approvals). The backyard is filled with established gardens and numerous fruit trees – lime, lemon, plum, avocado and even a curry leaf tree – something that could be used in that gourmet kitchen.
