Light and airy

THE bustle of South Street became peaceful tranquility as I approached a rear subdivision and stepped inside this beautiful three-bedroom home.

The soaring wall of glass in the huge open-plan – complete with cathedral ceiling – took my breath away, and on the the other side was a lovely courtyard garden.

White walls, aqua frames on the windows and doors, and terracotta tiles give the open-plan a beachside ambience.

Huge windows envelope the dining area, making it perfect for soaking up the winter sun, and there’s a solar pergola to keep things cool in the summer.

The semi-open kitchen is a delight and includes speckled granite benchtops, golden timber cupboards and drawers, and a floor-to-ceiling double pantry.

Outside, the alfresco courtyard has a chilled-out vibe and is perfect for relaxing with a book or having your mates around for a Sunday barbie.

A high limestone and lattice wall provides total privacy, and the neighbours’ rampant passionfruit vine will provide fresh fruit for your pavlovas.

The main bedroom on the ground floor is a generous space with built-in-robes and a semi-ensuite.

Huge double doors open onto a sheltered courtyard garden, where a paw paw tree is laden with fruit.

Before heading upstairs make sure you check out the under-stair storage: it’s a huge space perfect for a wine cellar.

The other two bedrooms on the second level have high ceilings and built-in-robes.

This funky 301sqm property is a 15-minute walk from the CBD and South Beach, and there’s a heap of cafes and boutique shops nearby.
