A PROM­I­NENT Bay­side site with More­ton Bay out­look helps this 3588sq m prop­erty of­fer a time­less style be­fit­ting its sea­side set­ting.

Built in the 1920s for a re­tired ship cap­tain, More­ton House has been ex­ten­sively re­fur­bished and re­stored over the years, to the point where it now of­fers a con­sid­ered bal­ance of character, el­e­gance and lux­ury.

Its out­doors boast land­scaped gar­dens, a pool, cov­ered and un­cov­ered liv­ing ar­eas and im­pres­sive More­ton Bay views from many van­tage points.

The house is set be­hind wrought iron gates, and at the end of a long drive­way, en­sur­ing pri­vacy, while it is less than 2km from train and pub­lic trans­port routes and 23km from the city.

The main en­trance leads from the drive­way to the prop­erty’s left, ar­riv­ing at the ocean-fac­ing front of the house and its grand por­tico en­try.

Inside, tim­ber floors and light colours cre­ate a warm feel, be­cause all cen­tral liv­ing spa­ces link to out­door pa­tios, ocean views and nat­u­ral light are plen­ti­ful.

A mod­ern kitchen with mar­ble bench­tops and a range of com­mer­cial fit­tings, in­clud­ing gas oven, range­hood, win­dow bench seat and stor­age, caters to the home chef, and links con­ve­niently with the ad­join­ing liv­ing space.

Set off this at one side is a sit­ting room and study, while meal and more for­mal din­ing rooms con­nect with the kitchen’s pa­tio-fac­ing front.

A tim­ber stair­well at the cen­tre of this space leads to an up­per level, fea­tur­ing most of the home’s bed­rooms.

An en­tire wing is set aside for the main suite, com­plete with two walk-in wardrobes and two en­suites – one of which has dou­ble toi­lets – while ad­di­tional stor­age, a bath­room, a study and two more bed­rooms com­plete this level.

On the ground level at the prop­erty’s street-fac­ing side is a guest res­i­dence with built-in wardrobe and an en­suite. A sauna ad­joins this space, while other fea­tures of this prop­erty in­clude a gar­den room and cel­lar.
