THE location played a significant role in the owners’ decision to buy this 747sq m block and build a magnificent two-storey home in 2012.
“Having direct beach access out the front of our home was a huge factor in choosing the block, along with the fact that it is a rare coastal block and our views will never get built out,” they said.
Designed by Peter Doggett, the home has amazing panoramic views across both floors.
The ground floor includes a home office and open-plan living/dining area and superb kitchen with high-end European appliances, including a built-in coffee machine, and ample storage and bench space.
In winter stay warm by the gas fireplace and watch the storms roll in over the ocean, while in summer open the doors to the terrace and welcome the sea breeze in.
Hosting large or small gatherings will be easy in the alfresco area, which the owner said was her favourite space.
“It is protected from the strong coastal winds, so it can be used all year round,” she said.
“I love that I can sit and look out at the ocean and passing boats while watching the kids in the pool or playing cricket in the backyard.
“Entertaining is a breeze; the pizza oven, built-in barbecue and deep fryer in the alfresco area always make our dinner parties a hit.”
There are plenty of other opportunities to entertain or just relax and enjoy the beautiful views.
Upstairs another living space, with bar, opens to a balcony overlooking the ocean and is an ideal space for drinks with friends or a quiet coffee.
There is also a study, where the kids can do their homework.
The owner said her teenagers loved that they had their own spaces as well.
“My daughter spends a lot of time in the theatre, with starry ceiling, watching movies, or down by the pool with the spa jets on and my son enjoys the games room with direct access to the backyard for a quick game of cricket with his mates,” she said.
The home has four bedrooms, each with its own luxurious ensuite.
The master has Japanese-inspired styling, stunning views, huge walk-in robe and lavish ensuite, also with views, a freestanding bath and shower with three custom settings.
