Looking for a sea change or need to expand your life view? Consider this stunning and light-filled four bedroom home looking over the pristine waters of Bermagui on the Sapphire Coast.
Watch the whales on their migrations and track flotillas of sailboats as they glide by. Stroll down to Bermagui’s famous Blue Pool for an invigorating swim, and walk home with a quality coffee after meeting up with friendly locals.
1 Scenic Drive, Bermagui is a short stroll from the town’ famous ocean pool, and being only minutes’ walk to local restaurants and shops, this craftsman built home is in one of the best positions in town.
On the market for $1,395,000, “this home is totally central and there’s absolutely nothing to be done”, says listing agent Julie Rutherford.
With three bathrooms and parking for four vehicles (two off street), the home can accommodate an extended family, or even incorporate a guest house for short term letting. Both ground floor bedrooms offer ensuite bathrooms, plus a kitchenette and private external access, absolute gems in the new shared life ‘style’. The ground floor can also easily be converted to create a home for one large family, or a separate home-office for busy e-communters.
Knock-out first impressions are created on entering this home, by way of an elegant hand built staircase, bringing you up into the light of the first floor.
Boasting a mix of old timber and sleek features, the home’s bright and airy spaces evoke memories of past seaside holidays. Rustic, extra-wide Tasmanian Oak floorboards enhance beautifully proportioned living spaces, that open out onto spacious hardwood decks. With views to mountains and across seas, this is a home to fall in love with.
Passionate about building and renovating homes, the owners began this project three years ago, with the intention of recreating an old beach house feel, but with state of the art fittings and features.
These creative owner-builders have been collecting beautiful timber and antique doors and pieces for many years. Features incorporated into the design are sash windows, large timber beams, etched-glass doors and antique fittings, plus every room has a weatherboard feature wall. This retro charm is incorporated seamlessly into the sleek, contemporary ‘Hamptons’ feel of the clifftop abode.
Watch over the Pacific Ocean and soak up the breeze on your ‘summer deck’, at the eastern end of the expansive and comfortable open living space.
Listing agent Julie Rutherford says “This is one of the best homes in one of the best locations on the coast. There are a million reasons for living here. With an unspoilt environment, affordable properties, Bermagui is a dynamic community, and we have the best, most temperate, climate in the world.”
The extensive kitchen includes a six burner gas cooktop and electric oven, large central island of caesar stone, plumbed double fridge with ice-maker all framed by wonderful views towards the mountains and a sunny ‘winter deck’. As well as being a pleasure to cook in, there is the addition of a butlers pantry which houses a double sink, fridge, and is ideal for wine storage, all accessed via a unique recycled door rescued from a hotel in Sydney, a real feature of the space.
Ms Rutherford says “Bermagui is a friendly, community-minded town with a lot to offer in terms of facilities, infrastructure, culture and of course beauty.”
