Un­usual Fin­nish for ’80s build

Let some steam off in the sauna, at the pool or walk to the beach. By NATALIE HORDOV

WHILE this home’s lo­ca­tion, me­tres from Cobb Drab­ble Re­serve and close to the beach are ap­peal­ing, its unique ar­chi­tec­tural fea­tures ini­tially drew the owner’s in­ter­est when it was pur­chased in 2002.

It was built in the mid-1980s and an abun­dance of ex­posed brick­work draws the eye while pro­vid­ing points of sep­a­ra­tion be­tween rooms, and there are high, raked ceil­ings with ex­posed beams.

The owner said the pre­vi­ous owner was Fin­nish and added a sauna, an un­com­mon but at­trac­tive fea­ture.

Another lovely place to un­wind is the large al­fresco area with views over sur­round­ing parks and re­serves and there is also a pool sur­rounded by es­tab­lished gar­dens.

In­side there are mul­ti­ple liv­ing zones in­clud­ing a large open-plan liv­ing area that flows through to the kitchen/meals area.

The kitchen has am­ple bench space and stor­age, and a break­fast bar.

There is also a games room and study. The home has four be­d­rooms and two bath­rooms, in­clud­ing the mas­ter with en­suite.

The owner has re­cently in­stalled new car­pets, air­con­di­tion­ing, blinds and win­dow shut­ters, garage door, toi­lets, shower screen in the sauna, pool lin­ing, and new fenc­ing and roof for the per­gola.

On an 828sq m block it is close to the City Beach din­ing precinct, shops, pub­lic trans­port and schools. ■
