LIVE it up in your own version of the Hamptons with this Quinns Rocks property, positioned in a peaceful enclave just minutes from pristine beaches.

Built nine years ago by APG homes, the bespoke design offers open and relaxed living in a family-focused environment.

“It reflects the feeling of being on holiday that old Quinns engenders,” one of the owners said.

“It took us a while to find the right block and we chose the area for its character, the ability to walk to the beach and we also like that it was close to good schools and shops.”

The home is immediately welcoming, with an airy foyer with solid timber flooring that beckons toward the formal living areas.

There is also a sprawling, free-flowing casual meals/family area adjacent to the kitchen, which comes with an AGA cooker, rangehood, dishwasher, double-sized fridge recess and tons of storage.

Outside, a picturesque country garden and a patio with timber deck create a lovely alfresco entertaining area.

“We added the pool shortly after the completion of the house and its position and surrounding were again designed to continue the feeling of being away from it all,” the owner said.

“Sitting by the pool with wine and nibbles really does fell like you are on holiday.

“It is also a firm favourite with the whole family at weekends, including our two grandchildren.”

Completing the ground floor is a home office.

Upstairs, the master bedroom has a spacious walk-in robe, spa ensuite and access to a balcony.

All four minor bedrooms are also on this floor and have timber flooring and double built-in robes and are close to the main bathroom.

“The home has proved a hit with the numerous friends and family that have come to stay over the years with its close proximity to the beach and the sound of the waves which can be heard particularly at night, adding to the very relaxing feel,” the owners said.

“The closeness of some great places to eat and have a drink – or three – has been a blessing as it means no one has to drive.

“While the house is also very family orientated, it also provides enough room for every one to find their own space.

“The relaxed atmosphere of both the home and area is a positive attribute on our otherwise very busy work lives.”
