to start the mam­moth task of making-over the beach­front home.

“The first three or four months it was in­hab­it­able.

“We vir­tu­ally gut­ted it and started again,” Mr Seiler said.

“We very ex­ten­sively ren­o­vated the property.”

The self-con­fessed “com­pul­sive ren­o­va­tors” listed their Ar­ling­ton Es­planade dream home this week to chase their next property chal­lenge. “We’d like to stay in Cairns. “The main rea­son for sell­ing is we have fin­ished (ren­o­vat­ing).

“We worked on this with­out much of a break for three years.

“We do use trades­men for all the things we can’t do.

“But we a lot of the work here is dec­o­rat­ing, paint­ing and reg­u­lar main­te­nance which we do our­selves.” Mr Seiler said he would be sad to leave the fourbed­room home.

“To sit on the deck and watch the dol­phins swim by in the morn­ing is one of the most beau­ti­ful things.

“It’s a hol­i­day life­style ev­ery day. “That is how we look at it. “It’s a place ev­ery­body goes on hol­i­day and it’s a place where you can enjoy that.

“We love the area, we love the place...

“You feel like you are sit­ting on the beach ev­ery day.”

A price has not been set for the property but in­ter­ested par­ties can con­tact sales agent Wendy Niven.

“This is a unique and time­less home for those who ap­pre­ci­ate re­laxed lux­ury, life­style and lo­ca­tion,” Ms Niven said.

The ground floor has hand­crafted wooden Ba­li­nese doors, two bed­rooms, a bath­room, kitch­enette, study zone and liv­ing area which flows on to a large cov­ered ve­randa and in-ground pool.

Level two of the property fea­tures a de­signer kitchen with a built-in wine fridge, walk-in pantry and Euro­pean ap­pli­ances. It also has an­other bed­room, bath­room and two liv­ing ar­eas.

Level three is home to the mas­ter bed­room, dress­ing room and en­suite with free­stand­ing bath and views to the moun­tains.

Ms Niven said the room also had its own pri­vate bal­cony with views to the ocean.
