A LOT of real estate agents claim a property has the glamorous charm of the Hamptons, then you look at the photos and it’s like some tawdry, plastic-fantastic version of the Long Island dream.
Thankfully this five bedroom three bedroom house in Winthrop lives up to its billing and has that classic, elegant Hamptons feel.
It’s really apparent in the open plan living/dining/kitchen area, where you can gaze out the white French doors at the gorgeous and very sizeable pool in the back garden.
With those lovely views, it is a stunning place to relax and enjoy meals with your family.
The darkish floors provide a nice antidote to the pristine white in the rest of this space, which is light and airy with high ceilings.
The kitchen has some lovely stone benchtops and plenty of cupboards and drawers, with the black appliances really popping against the white.
There’s a nice indoor-outdoor flow and you can open the glass French doors and walk out onto the spacious, sheltered alfresco.
The patio has the same white colour scheme, so it’s almost a seamless transition as you enter the back garden. Out here you’ll no doubt enjoy countless meals with friends and family, before going for a dip in the inviting pool.
With jets of water streaming out of a limestone water feature, it really is a lovely setting for those hot summer months.
The house isn’t cookie-cutter and there are some lovely design touches including the intricate lead light windows beside the front door. It helps set everything off and gives the property some individuality.
With five bedrooms, two massive living areas, two dining areas, theatre room and study, there’s absolutely masses of space for a large family. The main bedroom is particularly impressive with a walk-in robe and stylish ensuite.
The home includes two driveways with rear parking behind the gate for cars, boats and trailers, newly updated pool, double lock-up garage with automatic doors and a laundry.
Situated on a whopping 829sqm block on Craig Place, it’s within walking distance of quality schools and amenities including Winthrop Gardens and Winthrop Primary School, and it’s in the catchment for Applecross Senior High School.
