IT'S oh, so private yet you can enjoy water views from virtually every room in this exceptional waterfront home. Boasting an ideal northern aspect, this two-level home adjoins a treed neighbourhood park on the corner of The Peninsula. And there is the choice of a main bedroom on either level.
Being on a bend in the canal, you not only have a north east aspect up the waterway but also around to the north west.
The Mediterranean-style house is set back from the street, with wide lawn area, hedges and walled garden. It sparkles with soft white render and terracotta-look roof tiling while double wrought iron gates open to a private garden.
The portico entry with timber double doors opens to a foyer with skylight. Two steps take you down to the living areas with a sitting space to the left and another, larger area opposite that has french doors opening out to a paved courtyard in the east.
A set of double doors opens to a carpeted office or studio at the front of the house. Even here, you can look through the living area to the water.
The lower level features a modern kitchen and substantial dining area, allowing for easy entertaining and comfortable family meals.
A carpeted media area lounge is highlighted by 7m of timber-framed bi-fold doors and lime-washed bi-fold shutters opening to the paved alfresco dining area. From here, a small lawn area takes you past the heated plunge pool to the waterway.
There are two arms to the jetty plus a central boat lift. A waterfall plays into the swimming pool. Built in the late '90s, the house has been well looked after and is beautifully presented.
There are high ceilings and fans are fitted. You benefit from the northerly aspect and the way the home opens up from the water.
Granite benchtops are in the kitchen which comes fitted with a Fisher & Paykel stainless steel wall oven and ceramic cooktop as well as dishwasher. There are soft-close drawers, as part of the cream two-pak cabinetry, and a corner pantry.
French doors open from the casual dining to the outdoor courtyard and lawn. A powder room and the laundry are to left of entry, connecting to the garage.
Enjoy pillow views of the waterway from the ground-floor bedroom. It has a walk-in dressing area plus an ensuite with travertine-look tiling and corner shower.
Tiled stairs with timber treads and risers lead up to a tiled living area on the upper floor. Another king-size bedroom with French doors and wrought iron rails open to give long water views. Again, there is a walk-in dressing area plus ensuite.
The middle bedroom comes with casement windows looking to the water while the third bedroom also has french doors to give water views over the pool. A vanity is at the end of the hallway while a separate bathroom has a corner spa, vanity and separate shower.
The home is fitted with a ducted vacuum system and back-to-base alarm.
