luxury home on the beach.
This contemporary beach house on highly coveted Balook Street is the dream of many, but reality of few. A large family home just metres from the water with terrific views across Lauderdale Beach and an impressive design for ease of indoor and outdoor living.
A timber screen fence and remote entry gate leads to the carpark at front and double garage, with exposed aggregate driveway and low maintenance synthetic grass and established garden beds. The covered porch and entry foyer lead through to the main downstairs living areas, with a spectacular open air kitchen and dining room with a void to the second storey above. The custom kitchen is an impressive design with granite bench tops, a waterfall island bench and breakfast bar. There are advanced appliances including gas cook tops, dual Smeg ovens, a feature range hood and brand new Asko dishwasher. The kitchen and dining area also flows seamlessly to a large undercover deck and BBQ area with in-built sink creating the perfect place for alfresco dining, and there is also an outdoor fire pit for nights with family and friends. Bifold doors extending the width of the spacious downstairs lounge room open to the deck, which wraps the entire way around the lower level of the home, leaving almost no maintenance of the grounds and much more time to enjoy the full range of lifestyle benefits on offer. The rear boundary has also been partially enclosed with powder coated fence that can be fully opened allowing direct access to the beach, and there is an outdoor shower to easily remove the sand and salt water.
Also on the lower level are three family bedrooms, all of which have built-in robes and one with direct access to the rear deck area. The downstairs bedrooms are serviced by the stylish family bathroom with a double wall hung vanity unit, corner spa bath and separate shower, with underfloor heating and heated towel rail. There is also a separate laundry and powder room.
One of the most impressive areas of the home is the upstairs family room or parent’s retreat, which is a highly versatile space with an open air walkway linking to the home office mezzanine. An inspired design creating a unique space to work from home, whilst still being connected to general household activity. The upstairs lounge also has bi-fold doors opening to an elevated deck with sensational water views extending to Roches Beach and Frederick Henry Bay, and a hot tub of course to relax and unwind. Also on the upper level is the spacious main bedroom and large ensuite bathroom featuring a walk-in shower with dual waterfall shower heads, double vanity unit, underfloor heating and heated towel rail.
The home has recently been updated with quality new floating floor and carpet throughout all living areas and the main bedroom, and boasts energy efficient infrastructure with a 21 panel, 6.1 kW smart inverter solar system, LED lighting throughout, 3 reverse cycle heat pumps as well as a 315L heat pump hot water system. There is also a security system for peace of mind whilst away.
The residence is without doubt one of the most spectacular homes to have been built on Balook Street waterfront. Achieving the highest standards of modern day comfort with fully developed and extremely low maintenance outdoor areas to maximise time at the beach. Certainly a very rare opportunity to secure a premium property and an enviable lifestyle in a rising Hobart market.
