entertainment-plus down by beach
JUST steps to the beach, this home is a true entertainer with enviable appeal and multiple options. The home is great for extended families with its five bedrooms, two kitchens and flexible living areas.
Agent Miranda Tonellato says that because of the clever design, the new owners also could choose to live either in the home as it is or lease one of the floors.
Upstairs, the open-plan family and meals area offers plenty of scope to entertain, with the option of spilling on to the front or rear balcony.
Also upstairs are three of the five bedrooms, including one with an en suite.
As an alternative, the top floor could be transformed into a teenage retreat or as a livein area for grandparents, as an upstairs kitchen makes it self-sufficient.
Two more bedrooms or one plus a study are on the ground floor.
‘‘The main bedroom downstairs is like a double double room,’’ Ms Tonellato says.
A kitchen and separate formal and dining rooms also are on this floor.
A sunroom to the rear will be a great place to relax with a good book and a coffee.
The rear yard has a garage, workshop and room for a swimming pool.
Most of the yard is dominated by an undercover pergola area, perfect for a barbecue with family and friends.
‘‘They have a very large outdoor entertaining area that is under cover, paved and overlooking the backyard,’’ Ms Tonellato says. The garden is neat and easy to manage. ‘‘One of the major drawcards with this property is its close distance to the beach,’’ she says.
Beach lovers are only a 10-minute walk to the ocean. The property also is close to public transport and schools and the restaurants, cafes and shops at Henley Beach.
