Looking for something a little different - something with timeless appeal?
Experience an incredible standard of residential indoor/outdoor living in a home with a white minimalists approach that has been designed for the tropics and reminiscent of plantation homes in the South Sea islands.
With soaring, lime-washed ceilings and polished timber, cypress-pine floors, the upper level is connected to the solid concrete base of the lower level via a spiral staircase, in addition to the external stairs at the front and rear of this impressive home.
Facing north-east, with window and door openings which encourage the breezes, this double-storey picturesque home has far-reaching views of the ocean which extend as far as Dunk & Purtaboi islands and beyond.
Varied room heights break up the living area on the upper level which stretches the full length of the upper floor and incorporates the master bedroom and ensuite which is up a step or two from the kitchen/living areas. No full-height walls allow the breezes to be drawn through and your vision to be extended throughout this entire level.
Separating the outside from the indoors are sets of French doors and soaring picture windows, enabling a vast amount of light to flood into the building and provide stunning views of the lush green rainforest at the rear of this large 952m2 allotment which backs onto acreage, ensuring its privacy.
A wide, four meter, timber deck on the north-east side of the home is great for entertaining with guests and the rear deck is a more serene and shaded area where you can relax and read a book or sit in awe of the natural beauty of the rainforest. Relax in the spa bath/hot tub made surrounded by the white aluminium sliding plantation shutters which are low maintenance, moveable and provide privacy when required.
On the lower level are two air-conditioned bedrooms which double as work/play areas that have been designed to ensure that the uses of these areas would change as the family ages. Being lovers of music, the Solomit straw ceilings on this level are insulated and assist with the acoustics and are an interesting feature on this level. While one huge room (6m x 8m), the space could be adapted to form two bedrooms.
These two living areas are separated by a store room which serves as a cyclone-proof shelter and conveniently adjoins the second bathroom/laundry combined.
The second bedroom with sitting area on this level is a quiet, private area and is also large enough to have many uses. A place to enjoy and display your hobbies, a sunken lounge area to curl up on the lounge and watch a good movie and a place to sleep. Large picture window allows views of the tropical rainforest at the rear. Sliding glass doors open onto an open living, entertaining, dining, recreation and swimming area complemented by a freeform pool edged by boulders and surrounded by timber decking - a place to relax on your deck chair and which is secured by a high white, timber paling fence.
Lock-up garage with remote controlled opening for housing two vehicles, a concreted storage area at the rear of the building and tool shed in the garden satisfies all your storage needs. Gardens are floodlit at night and are simply spectacular.
Rainforest, ocean views, elevation & privacy and only a short 534m to the beach. $595,000.
