A TRUE labour of love, owners Michael and Tracey Davies originally bought this 544sq m property in 2009 and painstakingly built this home brick by brick.
“We emigrated from the UK in 2007 and always wanted to live by the ocean,” Mrs Davies said.
“A friend of ours spotted the block while walking their dog and then when we viewed the land and saw the awesome views, we just knew this was where we wanted to live.”
Mr Davies, who is a bricklayer, owner-built the home to suit his family perfectly with a layout that includes a bedroom wing on the first floor.
“Our children lived with us initially but have since bought their own homes,” Mrs Davies said.
“The West Wing, as we call it, is a great part of the house for kids as they have their very own area away from the rest of the house.”
The two-storey house also has multiple living and entertaining areas, including the main family space that flows seamlessly into the outdoor areas.
The central hub is the sprawling open-plan lounge and dining area alongside the custom kitchen with stone benchtops, top-of-the-range stainless steel appliances and dishwasher.
Large glass doors here slide away to reveal the enclosed alfresco with barbecue, bar and pool.
“We had a Hawaiian party for Michael’s 50th, which was great as we could use the heated pool,” Mrs Davies said.
In addition, there is an upstairs retreat that consists of a second lounge room that spills out on to a full-width balcony.
“We never tire of sitting on the balcony with a glass of wine watching the sunset,” Mrs Davies said.
Completing the floor plan are a home theatre, home office, downstairs guest suite, several powder rooms, a laundry room and double garage with shopper’s entry
“It’s also such a good spot and we are blessed to have lovely neighbours,” Mrs Davies said.
“We love walking to the park with the grandchildren and our dog and we also walk to Mindarie Marina and The Beach Shack in Jindalee as our home is placed perfectly to walk in either direction.”
Special features include high ceilings, American oak flooring, full-height tiling to wet areas and reverse-cycle airconditioning, an alarm system and automatic garden reticulation.
