A beach­side haven

The Advertiser - Real Estate - - Under The Hammer -

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.
