WONDERFUL street presence and private walled courtyards are just two of the attributes of this elegantly inspired home.
Originally constructed for a European couple, it is little touches like formally prepared courtyard gardens, generous use of glass, half pipe terra cotta roof and the privacy obtained from a deep breezeway setback to the double timber doors of the main entry that set it apart.
A grove of coastal paperbarks line the informal kerbside gardens and a wide driveway lifts to a double door garage. Neatly trimmed three metre height lilly pilly line the solid boundary walls to the courtyards and a beautiful native gardenia welcomes you with a delicious fragrance.
A pair of handsome custom made wrought iron gates secure the breezeway and the lofted portico also features cut outs of wrought iron.
The black wrought ironwork of these gates corresponds nicely to dark framed windows, sliding doors and strategically placed picture windows.
An open vestibule has a facing wall which carries the walled staircase, while traditional terra cotta tiles begin and run right throughout traffic and open living spaces.
A pale exterior render is carried through in a soft cream internal palette.
The staircase is a focal point of open living rooms, while the house concentrates on the wonderful east and northern light through two stories of sliding glass doors and fixed upper level panels.
Light plays across the home through these walls of tinted glass and sliding doors connect to a pillared loggia.
Dark granite bench tops and stainless appliances highlight the centrally located kitchen.
A stainless exhaust hood sits above a gas hob, with a wall mounted oven and under bench dishwasher. The atrium height walls and cupped light fittings provide a perfect canvas for favourite art pieces, while the open sky outlook and green backdrop of the courtyard gardens deliver complete privacy.
Two downstairs bedrooms set to the southern wall of the house are served and separated by a full bathroom. The southern wall of this outdoor room has an upper bank of adjustable cedar louvres to soften the sometime blustery south easterly winds.
A second tier hedge of magnolia along the eastern boundary provides colour and interest in the spring.
A security gate leads through to the Romanesque inspired pool for those days when you are not at the beach for an ocean swim. There is an automatic sprinkler system set up for the grounds.
Taking the carpeted staircase to the upper floor finds you in an open mezzanine room that runs down the length of the house to arrive at double doors isolating the main ensuited bedroom.
This serene upper level is a private retreat away from the main body of the house.
A southern view of the ocean is captured from this main bedroom. For those who like to do their entertaining under their own roof, this beautifully presented and well maintained home may be just the answer.
For dogs and their owners the stretch of beach provides off the leash exercise for your four-footed mates.
