SEA views, sun­sets and beach­side liv­ing at­tracted a cou­ple to buy a block of land over­look­ing Moana Beach about six years ago. ‘‘The lo­ca­tion was re­ally num­ber one for us,’’ one of the ven­dors says.

‘‘The views are some­thing that you would pay $1 mil­lion for – you’ll never get them any­where else.

‘‘We bought the block and built from scratch . . . we liked the area, it was quiet and very open.’’

The three-bed­room modern house was de­signed by the ven­dors in con­junc­tion with Stir­ling Homes.

‘‘It is very unique in style,’’ the ven­dor says.

‘‘We’ve got a split-level home with 3.6m (12ft) ceil­ings, which gives a feel­ing of open space.’’

Also in the brief, the ven­dors say they wanted to give a feel­ing of ‘‘lux­ury’’ to the home.

‘‘The house has his and hers walkin robes and an ex­tremely large en­suite with a built-in cor­ner spa,’’ the ven­dor says.

The house fea­tures two open-plan liv­ing ar­eas and a sep­a­rate din­ing area.

A well-equipped kitchen in­cludes Smeg stain­less-steel ap­pli­ances and a walk-in pantry.

Ad­dress: 77 Grand Boule­vard. Type: Modern three-bed­room home with views of Moana Beach and Wil­lunga hills. Agent: Ray White Seaford, ph 8327 1055, Chris O’brien 0449 140 101. Open: 7.30pm to 8.30pm to­mor­row. Price guide: $519,000 to $549,000.

The ven­dors say they will miss the prop­erty’s unique lo­ca­tion.

Some of Ade­laide’s ‘‘best beaches’’ – in­clud­ing Moana and Port Noar­lunga – are just a short drive away.

‘‘Moana beach is a very clean, very tidy beach . . . the water is crys­tal clear. I think it’s one of the best beaches in Ade­laide,’’ the ven­dor says.

The ven­dors also took ad­van­tage of the nearby Mclaren Vale wine re­gion.

‘‘We went there al­most ev­ery week­end,’’ the ven­dor says.

‘‘We would usu­ally go down and have a cof­fee or get some cheese from Blessed Cheese. It’s less than 10 min­utes away.’’
