BEACH PARTY

When it comes to coastal entertaine­rs, they don’t come much more impressive than this

- Tom Bowden

A Cockle Beach home offers a grand entertaine­r’s lifestyle and has everything you could possibly need for a fantastic coastal getaway. Jo and Annette Peters bought the land in 1998 and in 2005 set about building the dream they have since called home.

“I had friends over here who bought further up the peninsula, so I had been on many holidays there, and it’s just a lovely part of the world,” he says. “With the west-facing beach, it’s fantastic at night in the sandhills with a bottle of red. We built as much as we could possibly build with the money we could borrow. It can be all about relaxing, or it can be a party house – it can be whatever you want it to be. There’s a BOSE sound system through it and we didn’t go short anywhere, I think we were about $300,000 over budget, so we ended up with a heck of a house. We often have parties with about eight people where it’s a celebratio­n of food and wine for the whole weekend – every couple is responsibl­e for a meal and it’s got to be spectacula­r with the appropriat­e wine to go with it. We really have a fantastic time here.”

The home features six bedrooms – with the master suite Jo’s favourite feature of the house.

“I’ve got a waterbed with a bathroom and a spa and it all looks out over the sea, it’s beautiful,” Mr Peters says.

The home also has an open-plan living and dining space, a spacious alfresco area, a cellar, quality features throughout and a separate fourcar garage with bathroom and kitchen. With the home now too big for them, the time has come to sell and let someone else enjoy it.

“It’s exciting that some younger family’s going to have it and have a whole new group of friends to come over and have fun here.”
