When a builder builds his family home, he makes sure it’s perfect! 3 Whistler Close is three years old and was lovingly and thoughtfully constructed by a local builder who knew his young family would be making memories beneath the roof he was constructing. This is a home that has been built for the family and with family life in mind.
The heart of the home is the open plan living area that includes kitchen, dining and lounge. Hardy but stylish bamboo flooring extends throughout this area. The raked ceiling and expansive windows give a sense of space whilst the exposed beams and pendant lighting add character. This is a space that’s full of light and can be opened up to capture the fresh sea breeze. The kitchen is well designed and has an expansive work space, Bosch appliances and loads of storage.
Extending out from the living area is a generous deck that is so beautifully crafted it serves as a second living area. Constructed from beautiful stringy bark and black butt, this is a deck that wears well and requires limited maintenance. It’s wide and expansive – completely family friendly - a place to entertain, BBQ, play and relax. There’s room for the pets too! On wet weather days the kids can still scoot and skip along the deck and during the warm summer months their art projects and mud pies will dry beautifully in the sun. Of course most of the time on the deck will be spent admiring the stunning beach views which encompass Main Beach, Merimbula Bay and Mount Imlay.
Local knowledge and family life were brought together the moment this house was drawn on the plans! In the main living area, there’s an air con installed, although there’s rarely a need to turn it on – the thoughtful design of this home has already accommodated much of the heating and cooling needs of a family home. Every internal wall is insulated which assists with internal room temperatures (and keeps noise pollution at bay!). The windows in this open plan area are all double glazed. The raked ceiling (along with the 9ft ceilings throughout the home) also add to the energy efficiency of the property and contribute to a lovely sense of spaciousness. There’s also double insulation throughout the ceiling and the entire property has been thoughtfully constructed on a southerly aspect to avoid the strong northerly winds.
Being an “L shaped” home, the hallway almost becomes a feature. Extending from it are three very spacious bedrooms – all carpeted with built in wardrobes and double glazed windows. The main bathroom is divine. It’s stylishly designed and avoids glass completely – again making family life that much easier! There’s a free standing bathtub with nearby mantelpiece (bubble bath and candles anyone?) along with a hidden shower and toilet. There’s even an attractive LED skylight that brings beautiful natural light into the room.
Also branching off the hallway you’ll discover a closet just perfect for the vacuum and cleaning products! There’s also additional storage cupboards and a mudroom – strategically adjoining the garage! A small walk through study nook sits beside the laundry which is perfectly placed to lead out to the clotheslines (hidden from view) and the adorable “nature shower” that is equally as lovely as any shower you might find inside a home!
The fourth bedroom is the master bedroom and it sits at the end of the hall. It’s large and welcoming, with sliding doors that extend out to the deck. The master bedroom boasts an ensuite and expansive built in wardrobes. An outlook that includes a stretch of sand and rolling waves adds to the sense of rest and relaxation within this room.
Outside, more thoughtful features abound! There’s space for all the toys – a caravan or boat perhaps? Stunning ‘barn style’ timber doors beneath the home open into a storage space that’s perfect for all the tools. A unique, built-in kids’ playground makes the yard a welcoming space for the youngsters! They can monkey around on the bars, swing on the swings and clamber up the knotted rope! Low maintenance plants including pittosporums, blackberries, blueberries, hydrangeas and passionfruit vines are all well established in the garden. The lawns are level and easy to care for. The home backs on to a beautiful nature reserve that is regularly maintained by council and offers bushwalks, bike tracks and abundant bird life literally out the back door!
There are so many more beautiful, thoughtful features throughout this property. Incredibly rare yellow stringy bark “birds eye” timber posts have been used as features. Termite treatment framing forms the bones of the house making it stronger and sturdier. Self-cleaning gutters frame the roofline. And the entire property is single level making it perfect for families, retirees planning on hosting the grandkids or for those requiring wheelchair accessibility.
At 3 Whistler Place, the front door features a small plaque with a Gaelic inscription: Céad Míle Fáilte. It means One Hundred Thousand Welcomes and this beautiful family-friendly property is certainly ready to welcome you.
