Waterfront Luxury LivingArriving at your new home, you will approach picturesque Magnetic Island by ferry or on your own boat, which you can sail into the marina and right up to your front doorstep, mooring on your own 12m private pontoon.
This architect-designed luxury home has been built to maximise the outstanding marina, beach and ocean views. Arriving street-side, walk through the front door into an impressive entry hall which draws you through to the double-height downstairs living area with its expanse of glass opening onto the full width patio and the water beyond.
The kitchen will keep any family happy - the large island bench doubles up as a breakfast bar and is a great place to hang out and chat about the day's events. A generous quantity of drawers & cupboards allows you to keep the stylish SileStone benchtops clear along with a bar nook and handy 'comms' nook to hide away all those chargers and keys that modern life demands. Miele appliances including a steam oven, electric oven, induction cooktop, rangehood and built-in dishwasher allow you to cook up a storm and if you do choose to wash up, the deep double inset sinks are positioned perfectly with a window to the water above.
The covered patio is a fabulous spot to watch the sun set over the water or to contemplate where you might take the boat tomorrow. A 15m lap pool with spa seat enjoys the same view and has its own undercover large patio area - this house is made for entertaining!
The pool patio is open to the living area at one end and to the guest wing at the other providing direct access to a wet room guest bathroom with walk-in shower and separate WC facilities adjacent. A very spacious guest/second bedroom has lovely views across the pool to the marina on one side and to the private front courtyard garden to the other. The third bedroom is also very generous in size and the fourth bedroom, which is currently in use as a study has lovely pool views.
Also downstairs is a large media room, laundry and plenty of storage areas as well as direct access to the tiled double garage with auto door.
The central staircase draws you up to the mezzanine with its polished wood floors and luxurious parents' retreat. A lovely 'sitting room' with stunning 270 degree views across mountains and water will leave you wondering if you should share it with your guests and family or just keep it as your private sanctuary. The huge master bedroom allows you to wake up to similarly spectacular views and of course has a suitably generous walk-in-wardrobe and ensuite bathroom.
If you have been looking for a modern waterfront home anywhere on the Queensland Coast, you should seriously consider this property as it represents excellent value, is relatively low maintenance and in excellent condition, enjoying the benefits of waterfront living without being too exposed. The added bonus of the private pontoon and the close proximity to Townsville (approx 20 mins by ferry) and its airport with regular flights to most major cities is hard to beat.
