Lock up and leave at Sunshine Beach

Completed in 2006 and built to an exacting standard in a collaboration between its fastidious owners and master builder Carl Dew, the design of this elegant home has been executed with flair and imagination. The level 570m2 parcel has been landscaped to provide a private low maintenance garden backdrop to the inviting heated pool and paved entertaining area to the rear. A covered terrace flows through to a functional family entertaining area with a bank of concertina glass panels folding back to reveal a floor of polished concrete honed to a smooth finish pleasing to both the eye and touch. Two generous bedrooms and family bathroom create a separate bedroom wing on this lower level with a large laundry and home office set off from the entry vestibule ensuring the household is not disturbed by business guests.

Sustainability and long term economic savings were high on the owners' wish list when selecting the finishes, stunning bamboo flooring has been utilised throughout the upper level living area with an elegant staircase showcasing the warm tones of the honeyed timber. Solar panels were installed to keep a lid on heating bills and the home was cited on the land to take full advantage of its North East aspect. Zoned and ducted reverse cycle air-conditioning is available but rarely required given the beautiful sunny aspect of the home. It is a lovely elevated position on Ross Crescent, picking up those cool South Easterlies throughout the summer months.

The open plan living on the upper level is bathed in natural light and spills out to another covered terrace on the Northern flank of the building, the sleek modern kitchen boasts an island bench top, banks of storage cupboards and fresh sea blue glass splash back to mirror the ocean and coastal skies. The main bedroom suite offers a parents retreat worthy of hiding out, there is a nursery/office, exquisite ensuite bathroom, walk through robes and a private terrace overlooking the pool.

For sun lovers seeking a little more privacy the walled roof top terrace is the place to escape with a book and binoculars to track the whales as they head up and down the coast.
