A beachside haven
THE feeling of a secluded beachfront is not what buyers would expect to find in suburban Adelaide. A Tennyson property, however, sits perched on the dunes just metres from the water on a small street off Military Rd.
The three-storey property, built by the current vendors, has been designed to take advantage of the ocean frontage on every level.
‘‘The emphasis was on the beach,’’ the vendor says.
‘‘Basically, from every level you overlook the beach front.’’
On the ground level, there is a bar and home cinema, which opens out toward the beach on to a large fenced lawn.
The house’s main living areas as well as the main entrance are on the first floor with a lounge, kitchen and open family/meals area facing the beach.
A balcony and large glass doors overlook the dunes and the beach.
The top floor houses the three bedrooms, with the beach-facing master suite, which has a walkin robe, ensuite and balcony.
The vendor says no expense was spared in fitting out the home when they built it seven years ago.
For tech-heads there is a music system running throughout the home, camera surveillance and an integrated electronic system. The home also has ducted reverse-cycle airconditioning, gas heating, an intercom system, automatic front gates and an underground water system.
The kitchen features a walkin pantry, granite benchtops and glass splash backs.
The laundry on the bottom level is serviced by a chute from the upper floors.
The vendor says the home would suit a family or a professional couple.
‘‘It’s a good family home, maybe for one or two children,’’ the vendor says.
There are custom cupboards, homework areas and television points in the second and third bedrooms.
The quality-fitted home also would suit anyone who likes to entertain regularly or host parties by the beach.
