Your Private Waterfront OasisSet over an incredible 100 acres of native bushland, the main residence is a well planned 450 m2 architecturally designed passive solar home in a relaxed "Beach House" theme.
The home takes full advantage of the north east orientation and water views, with the fundamental design based on energy efficient, passive solar design which includes eave overhangs allowing winter warming and summer protection to all rooms.
Using a mixture of building materials including rendered Hebbel block, Mill Wood Weathertex boards and a Colourbond skillion roof, the result is spectacular and nearly maintenance free.
The afternoon summer breezes gently cool the home through louvered windows to the bedrooms and utility rooms. The seamless glass walls, windows and glass doors facing east provide an uninterrupted view over Warrell Creek to the Gaagal Wanggaan National Park, which is a 300 m wide strip peninsula running parallel to the Pacific Ocean from Scotts Head to Nambucca.
Low maintenance natural rock landscaping blends well with the native bushland surrounds, together with water gardens, palms and bridge work, make interesting features at the entry.
Leading off the outdoor living area is a 300 m2 lawn with an established Canary Island Date Palm making a statement against the natural bush and water views.
The main living area consists of open plan living comprising well proportioned kitchen, dining and living room, all taking advantage of the exceptional outlook. There is a modern two pack finish kitchen with granite bench tops, European stainless steel appliances and 5 m central breakfast and preparation bench. Leading off the kitchen is a 'butler's pantry' for bulk storage and additional food preparation space.
Adjoining the living area, the dining area can easily accommodate a 14 to 16 seat table and features a Lopi combustion fireplace and two 3 m wide glass sliding doors.
The light and airy feel generated in the main living area by the extensive use of glass and high raked ceiling is complimented by the earthy use of timber on the floors, a partial timber ceiling feature and exposed steel support beam above the windows. Glass sliding doors to the main living area which, when open, merge the indoor and covered outdoor living/alfresco dining areas, the home also has reverse cycle air-conditioning, adding to your comfort all year round.
The outdoor living area is a porcelain tiled area with a clear sheeting cover and positioned off the main living area where glass sliding doors open and take full advantage of the stunning water views.
There is a separate carpeted study located between the kitchen and master suite, which could be used as a crÃ¨che due to the proximity to the master suite. The study is also fitted with connections to fully integrated cable system for networking throughout the home.
The family room/home theatre room with its raked ceiling, reverse cycle air-conditioning and carpeted floor, comes complete with raised floor section and this utility room, which is close to the children's bedrooms, provides a separate living space to be enjoyed by the family.

It would easily fit a king size bed with space left for parents retreat furniture, and has a good sized walk in robe. The en suite is fitted with a double sized shower with modern glass screen, spa bath with a view over the water, quality fixtures and fittings, floor to ceiling tiles with porcelain tile features.

Activities available include bank and boat fishing, spear fishing, snorkelling, swimming, water skiing, jet skiing or general boating. Once you cross Warrell Creek from the property you reach a National Park peninsular which separates the Pacific Ocean from the creek.
From here it is approximately 250 m walk to the golden sands of Forster Beach, known locally as Big Beach, where you can enjoy surfing, swimming or fishing. Dolphins regularly pass the property in search of food and the wildlife is amazing from nesting osprey to inquisitive kangaroos.
