Spectacular artworks claim the spotlight in an idyllic beach house, seducing escapes to a 'salty' life three minutes away from toes-in-the-sand. Add a romantic, relaxed vibe, beautiful curtains flowing with the ocean breezes and a monochromatic palette, all evocative of when the hustle stops, and summer begins ... every day ... at Sunshine Beach.
Looking for more enticements? The main talking point is undoubtedly nirvana for chic albeit casual entertaining with two dining areas, three living areas and a green tranquil backdrop visible from every aspect.
A massive northeast-facing undercover front deck runs the width of the house plus there's a bar for sundowners with nature's soundtrack of waves breaking on the beach the perfect accompaniment. The bespoke dining table and benches by House of Orange comfortably seats up to ten and when it comes to sumptuous sofas credit goes to Cosh Living.
Except for the ingenious addition of a built-in gas 2-way fireplace by Lopi taking centre stage, the lines have been blurred between outdoors and in.
Clever options also apply to the open plan main living area with oak floors. VJ-profile walls and stunning kitchen with stone benchtops, high-end Smeg appliances, trough basin and double French-door fridge. In addition to the large island bench being a prep area and breakfast bar, it has been designed as a modish dining 'table' seating eight.
The on-trend monochrome palette of white, black and grey with splashes of brass and natural timbers continues in the bedrooms and bathrooms. The master bedroom with ensuite, has French doors out to the back terrace and pool deck, two additional bedrooms have Rockcote-finished robes and bathrooms feature Italian stone tiles, a statement Concrete Nation over-sized deep round basin also brass tap ware.
Downstairs with stone flooring, is a possible media room, another living space, perhaps a retreat for teens or a bunk room, plus a bathroom, full laundry, wet room for all the beach equipment and access to the garage. Just outside the entrance is a shower for those returning from the beach.
Boat storage is accessed by a double gate on the western side and the grassed area behind it, leads to a large flat fully landscaped back garden, with sun deck and gorgeous fully-tiled plunge pool, easily voted by kids and pets as their favourite place to hang out.
"It's so easy to see why the owners of this breezy former 80's classic beach house, fell for its location," effuses Tom Offermann Real Estate agent Rebekah Offermann.
"Wake up to the sound of the surf, grab the board and be on the beach in a 3-minute flat walk. Alternatively stroll to the Sunshine Beach village with its plethora of bars, cafes and restaurants, also the totally revamped Sunshine Beach Surf Club in 5-minutes."
