House for sale
28 Keel Retreat,
4 3 2
Heart and soul...when the wait is overIt's been more than a couple of years since a much-coveted waterfront north view aspect over the marina has come on the market complete with floating jetty for your boat. And, suffice to say, worth waiting for! Yes, a house built with heart and soul by a family of quality builders for themselves; custom designed for the purpose of fun seaside family gatherings. Yet also purpose built for caravan getaways. Like the character of the family builders, the home has a deceiving humble disposition from first appearance, mainly from the road. This was due to it being built for privacy, easy care and lock n' leave. Hence the private front enclosure wall complete with its own remote gate and plenty of hardstand parking inside for cars, boats and caravans. A huge double garage workshop also accommodates plenty of room for tools and the 4-wheel drive/s.
When you actually walk inside the property there is nothing humble about it at all! You are struck yet welcomed by nothing, but quality and shimmering character highlighted by rare polished tuart timber flooring. This seductively draws you to the masterpiece. Reminiscent of a massively upscaled version of the character and homeliness of a holiday log cabin, the feel is strategically enhanced by eloquent timber finishes throughout making your marina and water views a perfectly spectacular back drop. There is so much space for big family gatherings, yet it holds that feel for cosy intimacy.
The kitchen itself is the dream of all chefs and home makers located in the hub of the open entertainment living area, even complete with calming water views and so much bench space and storage. Featuring top of the range appliances, in-built stainless-steel coffee machine and one of the biggest L-shaped island breakfast bench ever to cater for most numbers of guests or stay over family. And speaking of which, there is so much room for extended family or guests with an extra main bedroom that is downstairs with ensuite and huge walk-in robe (perfect also for a main if you don't like stairs) and two double size rooms big enough for two beds each also featuring built-in robes. Upstairs you can escape to your very own office/easily big enough for a 5th bedroom. The separate lounge or retreat complete with kitchenette has astounding views of the marina and some ocean views. The main bedroom upstairs with the same marina views, or it could be for guests and you could live downstairs, has a Hollywood size and style ensuite complete with spa and a walk-in robe fit for any Hollywood celebrity to fit their extensive wardrobe of clothes. All areas and rooms are also completely reverse-cycle ducted air-conditioned.
There is a multitude of outdoor areas including back deck alfresco and expansive upstairs balcony perfect to host multitudes of sundowner guests while you watch the sunset over the water as the kids catch crabs or fish from the jetty right in front of your eyes. A third private patio tucked away in the middle of the home is a clever design for privacy but allows plenty of shelter for all weather and takes in the glorious morning sun. But this write-up and photos don't do the home justice!
Yes, if you really are craving that rare home, location and marine lifestyle that will touch your heart, don't just read this or look at photos or drive right on by. Pick up the phone and book a viewing as only a look inside will surely be booking a chance for that waterfront dream that only literally comes up once in a LONG while for a price well below replacement.
