STYLE has no bound­aries at this waterfront prop­erty.

Each of the five bed­rooms could have come out of a home mag­a­zine with metic­u­lous styling by home­own­ers Meg and Alan Barnes.

The cou­ple bought the prop­erty two years ago and said it was par­tially ren­o­vated when they found it.

“My wife and I just put the fin­ish­ing touches on it,” Mr Barnes said.

“She is very clever when it comes to dec­o­rat­ing.”

French doors, cathe­dral ceil­ings and a stun­ning colour pal­ette cre­ates a se­ri­ous fash­ion state­ment at Vik­ing Court.

Ac­cord­ing to Mr Barnes, the back­yard be­comes a sen­sa­tion when his frangi­pani trees bloom and cre­ate a bright yellow fea­ture.

Sprawled out on one level, the house comes with a steam room and tem­per­a­ture­con­trolled wine cel­lar.

“We en­ter­tain a lot and the house has a great lay­out for hav­ing guests around,” he said. “The kitchen is big and its an un­ob­structed path­way to the out­door en­ter­tain­ing area.”

Mr Barnes and his wife, who are orig­i­nally from Syd­ney, said they owned a slice of Bondi in their back­yard.

“There is a small pri­vate sandy beach and it re­minds me of Bondi Beach, but maybe even bet­ter,” he said.
