A top position and a welcoming design creates a true retreat in this Ocean Reef home.
A BEAUTIFUL property coupled with the amazing potential of an 845sq m block means this family residence will benefit any homebuyer now and in to the future.
The retired owners, who have lived here for the past seven years, said they enjoyed many of the extras.
“We find it handy to have the wide, circular driveway and space at the side,” one of the owners said.
“And the view from the lounge over the pool is just fabulous.
“It’s also very close to the sea and very convenient to all amenities.”
Built in 1987, the home has plenty of character throughout but recent updates have given the interior a modern facelift.
“We installed a new bathroom and revamped the ensuite in 2012,” the owner said.
Past the traditional brick-and-tile facade, the residence also reveals a light, neutral colour scheme, sleek downlights, stylish window treatments and polished floors.
To the right of the entry is the master bedroom, which has that refurbished ensuite and a walk-in robe. Opposite this is a formal lounge room, which benefits from ocean glimpses, as does the main bedroom.
Adjoining this is the original formal dining room that is used as a home office.
The house then opens up into the rear main living space, which has striking views of the alfresco entertaining area and lagoonstyle swimming pool.
The kitchen has one of the best views and is wonderfully designed, with stone benchtops and stainless steel cooking appliances including a wall oven and built-in microwave oven.
Next to this, the sunken carpeted games room with high raked ceilings has large glass doors that slide away to integrate the space with the paved barbecue area, creating a lovely indoor/outdoor room for hosting friends and family.
Out here, there are shaded pergola and patio areas, a gazebo, synthetic lawns and the resort-inspired pool.
As a bonus, there is a separate pavilion or pool house that offers plenty of versatility as a guest room, granny flat or studio.
