Sprawling outdoor living at sought-after coastal address
Designed by architect Peter Doggett, this Watermans Bay home combines the best of high-quality finishings, expert craftsmanship and attention to detail to create a stunning beachside abode.
The four-bedroom, three-bathroom home sits on a tranquil 808sqm corner block and exudes a timeless Hamptons style, which fits in perfectly with the laid-back coastal lifestyle the suburb offers.
“The design of the home is fantastic,” Realmark Coastal Director and Sales Associate Sean Hughes said. “Peter Doggett, who is an award-winning architect, did the design – and Peter never misses a button, he does an extremely good job.
“The natural light, the airflow in the home and the configuration and layout are exceptional.
“The way you would live in the home has really been thought out with a great deal of detail. The level of finish is phenomenal, as are the products that have been used inside the home.”
The outdoor setting is really the headline aspect of the abode, with a spacious alfresco and a built-in bar and barbecue looking over the gorgeous below-ground pool and its neighbouring gazebo deck, all raising the bar for outdoor living.
“It is a fantastic entertaining area, nice and protected from the wind, whole lot of northern sun and it flows and connects to the inside of the house quite well,” Mr Hughes said.
Another standout feature of the home is the wine cellar, which is right next to a commodious downstairs games room with ample space and its own built-in bar.
The lower level of the home has a stunning kitchen with plenty of storage and sits between the sunken meals area and sunken family room, keeping each section separate yet connected to the rest of the home.
A rear verandah can be accessed not just via the family room, but the powder room, laundry and a fourth bedroom which, with its own private bathroom, can operate as the guest bedroom or a place for an older child.
Located upstairs, an expansive balcony continues the outdoor living theme, offering up gorgeous views up Beach Road and towards the coast.
This balcony can be accessed via the master bedroom and sitting room through two separate sets of double doors.
The master suite is something to behold, with a massive walk-in robe and a splendid ensuite with a freestanding tub and double stone vanities.
“The Watermans Bay precinct is a really sought-after address,” Mr Hughes said.
“There is a diverse mix of people who are all aspiring to live in that suburb.
“It is one of the smaller coastal suburbs, only really consisting of about eight streets, and you have the bush and natural Class-A reserve at one end and beautiful Watermans Bay on the other.”
