If you are looking for a home that makes you feel you are on holiday 24/7, Emma Goodwin may have found the perfect property for you. Grab your beach bag and take a tour.
Think Cape Cod and sun-kissed carefree days of long hot summers and winters tucked up cosy and warm. That’s what springs to mind when you first step inside this home. Blonde timber floors in the dining room and kitchen areas remind you of a bleached pier over the water. Add to that large windows, high angled ceilings with exposed beams, timber joinery and soft creamy-toned walls and you can be transported to your own holiday home that you live in every day.
Granite bench tops in the kitchen sit above a multitude of pale cream cabinets that offer lots of room to store all your pots, pans and pantry goods. A gas hob and ample floor space combine to make this a great space to work in and there’s more than enough room for two.
If you can tear yourself away from this fabulous spot, the living room is just as inviting. Sandy-coloured sisal carpet, plenty of room for deep squishy sofas and more high ceilings with exposed timber maintain that free-and-easy living experience.
The doors to the deck also make that outdoor transition easy.
Two double bedrooms are on the ground floor of the home and large windows let the light flow in unhindered. Across the hall is an office or single bedroom, and the family bathroom is a vision with a large shower, deep bath and a large vanity.
Up a small flight of stairs and there’s another double bedroom with angled ceilings and the main bedroom with its own balcony.
There is plenty of storage in this house and a HRV system and gas heating in the hallway ensures everything is kept warm in winter.
While the section is large, there is not a lot of gardening to do. Yes, the lawns will need a mow but other than that, your weekends will be your own. A vege and berry patch will put some tasty treats on the table and any children will love playing in the tree fort in the magnificent magnolia tree.
Or they’ll enjoy hanging out with friends in the rumpus room, cleverly hidden in the garage. Insulated and sound proofed, instruments can be played and the noisiest of games conducted without interruption in this room. Perfect for sleepovers and parties.
A large deck with a tree growing through it provides a great spot for entertaining and adds extra living space. With the amount of mature trees around, the bird song is gorgeous.
This property is a perfect family home and surrounded by great neighbours in its own little community. Just a short stroll from town, good schools, the Lido and Esplanade, everything is close to hand and the car will rarely be needed.
