VEN­DORS Michael and Karen Trickey have had plenty to love about their stun­ning home.

“We love the view, we love the ac­tiv­ity on the water, our chil­dren love it be­cause they have their own lit­tle sec­tions in the house with their own bath­rooms,” Mrs Trickey said.

A range of liv­ing spaces from a decadent mas­ter suite, to a me­dia room, and a rum­pus room en­sured the cou­ple and their now 20-year-old and 18-year-old chil­dren had plenty of space.

“My favourite fea­ture would be the in­door-out­door liv­ing that opens onto the pool set­ting,” said Mrs Trickey, who is selling to down­size.

“We wanted a house with easy liv­ing and some­thing to be able to bring fam­ily and friends over and en­ter­tain them.”

The sense of spa­cious­ness in­side the house is ac­cen­tu­ated by sleek stone, glass and tim­ber fin­ishes, with soar­ing ceil­ings.

Out­side, lush low-main­te­nance gar­dens frame the prop­erty, past the al­fresco and pool set­ting, be­fore sand­stone steps lead to the water’s edge.

“We get beau­ti­ful sun­sets over the water and the en­try has sky­line views, it’s pretty grand too,” Mrs Trickey said.
