OWN­ERS Chris and Pam Lewis said this multi-storey home was ex­cep­tional.

“We have both lived in nu­mer­ous coun­tries, and in many styles of hous­ing, and this is by far the best house, lo­ca­tion and neigh­bour­hood we have ex­pe­ri­enced,” they said.

Be­fore buy­ing the home in 2010, Mr and Mrs Lewis watched its con­struc­tion with in­ter­est.

“The house was de­signed by Ralph Drexel and built over a twoyear pe­riod by Tony Borello,” they said.

“The house is a stand­out de­sign and we’re told it was in­spired by the beach and tran­quil lo­ca­tion.”

The house has a beau­ti­ful coastal feel, with soar­ing white tim­ber ceil­ings, tim­ber floor­ing, mar­ble tiling and lime­stone fea­ture walls.

The ground floor in­cludes two bed­rooms, a bath­room, pow­der room, home of­fice and liv­ing area that opens to a court­yard.

A lift and tim­ber stair­case lead to the first floor and the master suite with en­suite and dress­ing room, study or fourth bed­room and main liv­ing area.

The liv­ing area has soar­ing ceil­ings and a lime­stone fea­ture wall with fire­place.

Bi-fold doors open to a bal­cony and al­fresco area.

The top level of the home in­cludes a rum­pus room or ex­tra sleep­ing area and a roof ter­race with 360 de­gree views.

The views are a high­light for any­one who vis­its the home.

“As own­ers, we like the re­lax­ing out­look from our first-floor liv­ing and din­ing rooms,” Mr and Mrs Lewis said.

“You never tire of trees to the north and east, plus ocean glimpses to the west.

“Our guests in­evitably like the ocean and is­land views from the floor above, but to us this is just another di­men­sion to a great house.” ■
