WITH nine bedrooms and five bathrooms, this Long Street property in Beaconsfield caters for a raft of lifestyles.
The bottom level of the two-storey home has a a mix of four or five bedrooms, depending on whether you want to use the smaller ones as a study, or even a dressing room.
Two of the bedrooms have access to the pool, and there’s a huge covered alfresco at the rear.
Then there’s the very generous open plan, with a great kitchen.
But for me, the view from the second level trumps having access to the pool: from a number of rooms, the ocean is spread out like a glittering, liquid carpet, with Rotto to Garden Island floating on the horizon.
There are three bedrooms on this level, along with a huge dining room and an equally spacious living/kitchen, all set under soaring ceilings and with masses of windows to enjoy the view.
Plus there’s a gargantuan island bench/breakfast bar with white caesar stone bench tops.
Overhead, twin Velux skylights are fitted with rain sensors which close automatically at the first hint of inclement weather, and there’s a dumb waiter to take groceries, or “anything a bit heavy”, to the upper level.
As delightful as the interior spaces are, new owners will no doubt want to spend most of their time on the timber deck, with it’s stunning ocean views.
Sitting on 809sqm, there’s plenty of garden space, and a cute double-storey studio to boot.
The ground floor is a cosy open plan and there’s a bedroom on the second level, where the balcony has ocean views.
Solar panels and reverse-cycle air conditioning ensure all the various accommodations are comfortable all year round.
This is a great property for a large family, or rent out two of the three dwellings and sit back and enjoy a comfortable income.
