Contemporary coastal living in a beautiful bush setting
There’s a beautiful balance here - just minutes from the coast, yet a lifestyle surrounded by the timeless appeal of the Australian bush. With two acres of land populated by native trees and some exotic introduced palms and tropical plants, the contemporary homestead fits effortlessly into the landscape. From the gate, the driveway eventually leads to the covered portico of the east-west oriented building, and you step into a home of substance. The polished concrete passage reveals a front lounge/entertainment room on one side , and a compact office/den on the other. The design concept is modern, zoned living, with a large central open-plan kitchen/dining/lounge area, and bedroom/bathroom combos in the east and west wings. The kitchen is a gourmet’s delight, with a U-shaped Caesarstone bench, a Smeg electric oven and 6-burner gas cooktop, an Electrolux grill and deep fryer, and a Technica wall oven. In addition, there’s a butler’s pantry with a Bosch dishwasher, a wine fridge, and plenty of food preparation bench space. Entertainment is most definitely on the menu here. The main dining and lounge space enjoy abundant northern sunlight and access to the large casual outdoor patio, which is primed for barbecue activity and outdoor dining. Heading east, you’ll encounter a very chic bathroom, with shower, bath and vanity, plus a separate WC and basin. There’s a cluster of three bedrooms, a large rumpus room, and a laundry with outside access to the clothesline. At the western end, the superb master bedroom has garden views, a large walk-in robe, and a stunning ensuite with a sliding door to a private garden suntrap. All windows are double glazed, so ceiling fans and a split-system provide year-round comfort. Within easy walking distance of Market Square shopping centre, schools, the sports and aquatic centre and playing fields, it’s only a few minutes by car to the surf beaches, the river and the main retail hub of Ocean Grove. Here you really can have the best of both worlds. Land size: 7966m2 approx.
