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. ■
