tranquil acreage metres to water
Set on nearly 5 acres of gently sloping pasture, this much loved and amazing architecturally designed home is an absolute treasure. Extremely private and surrounded by gorgeous established gardens and trees, this is a secret hideaway with the water as your closest neighbour.
The home itself was designed by renowned architect Paul Gilby in the early 1980’s and offers a solar passive design, Tasmanian timbers, internal brick walls, double height ceilings and stunning glass features throughout. It offers a flexible floorplan with multiple living spaces downstairs as well a as terrific, sunny dining and kitchen overlooking the water. The kitchen itself is spacious with lots of cupboards and a large open pantry and a stunning corner window taking in the glorious water views on offer.
The master suite is on the lower level and benefits from a stunning ensuite complete with shower and skylight. Also on the lower level is a terrific and very flexible room; potentially a second living space or home office.
Upstairs there are a further two very generous bedrooms both with built-in robes and a large family bathroom with shower and large dual vanity. There is also an invaluable loft space, ideal for a playspace, storage or even an extra bedroom.
Outside, the grounds are well established and create an amazing sense of privacy and tranquility, a secret hide-out to call home. The property offers an ideal place to run horses, sheep or create a terrific hobby farm with multiple fully fenced paddocks and a large and versatile shed space. And of course, all just a stone’s throw from the water.
This home is just a short drive to local amenities, surf beaches, horse trails and only 20 minutes to the CBD, this home is sure to impress upon inspection.
