About this listing

SOLD - This listing was sold in September 2019.

Built in 1975 this coastal home has under gone a series of quality renovations over the years. The improvements didn't stop with the house in the quest of developing the potential of this private haven. The gardens too have been extensively opened up, tracks laid, trees removed, and the vista of the bay is now visible. This magnificent view has played a major part of decisions made, inside and out, as well as elevating the enjoyment of the home. Busy couples and active retirees will love this two bedroom home, with its office and ample living spaces on the two levels to entertain friends and family.
Now mainly double glazed, and heated by two ducted heat pumps and heated tiles as well as the elegant Escea gas fire, the home is ideally designed to stay at a comfortable temperature for you all year round. We have a large comfortable laundry room, a solarium to sit and take tea (or G&T!) to watch the tides go in and out. Large double garage with loft space. A free standing studio with loft space also, which is currently used as a gym and sauna room. The outdoor shower compliments the large heated swim-spa, chlorine free pool that stays with the property.
Meander down the path amongst the many blossoming trees to the boundary of the Queens Chain, so the view will remain unobscured by private construction. Only 18 minutes from town, open the electric gates and pinch yourself that you are home to this piece of paradise.
The owner reluctantly leaves this sanctuary—be quick lest he change his mind.
