SET just 200m back from the shore­front of Mer­maid Beach, the sea­side get­away is set apart from other beach-house style res­i­dences by its fine­tuned fin­ish.

Soar­ing ceil­ings the shade of bleached white sand com­ple­ment a muted pal­ette, while a sky­light in one bath­room al­lows the nat­u­ral light to fil­ter through.

French oak tim­ber floor­ing, Vic­to­ri­anash stair­well, porce­lain tiles and wool car­pets add a lux­u­ri­ous en­hance­ment to sim­plis­tic beach-house el­e­ments.

The house was con­structed four years ago by its ven­dors, a lo­cal cou­ple, who also added in a sparkling pool, over­looked by an en­ter­tain­ment deck and per­fectly man­i­cured gar­dens.

The prop­erty list­ing out­lines the res­i­dence’s “ex­cel­lence in de­sign with strong vis­ual ap­peal”.

It is de­scribed as be­ing “stun­ning in style and re­fined in de­sign”.

The prop­erty also fea­tures plenty of stor­age, so­lar pan­els and op­ti­mised se­cu­rity in­stal­la­tions, in­clud­ing CCTV.

Its ex­te­rior presents as a crisp, Hamp­tons style abode with neu­tral colours for a time­less feel, and is a stand out on the beach­side street.

Prop­erty data shows the me­dian house price for Mer­maid Beach has boomed over five years, in­creas­ing by 64.3 per cent.

More than 18 prop­er­ties were snapped up in the sub­urb in the past month.
