A combination of thoughtful design and a bush setting make this home a standout for anyone looking for a coastal retreat.

The McGoldrick’s Agency sales agent says this light-filled, architect-designed home at 9 Stapleton Street in Falls Creek is proving popular with prospective buyers.

“Everyone who has contacted us about this property has raved about how they’ve utilised only the internal walls,” she says.

“The rest is double-glazed glass, meaning the house is absolutely full of natural light.”

The home, set on around 1.28 acres, is the second venture between the current owner and an architect after a project in New Zealand and has hit the market for the first time.

“They’ve put a lot of thought into the design – the wood panelling looks amazing and brings nature inside,” Jayde Closs-Webb says.

“It’s a home that is very open and spacious, but it also feels welcoming and inviting,” she says.

“It’s really hard to achieve that, and they’ve done a great job.”

The home has been designed to take advantage of long lines, giving a wonderful sense of scale.

“We don’t see a lot of properties built like that,” Jayde says.

“The ceilings are really high, and the curtains are built into the ceiling, so it draws the eye seamlessly through the rooms and to the view outside.”

Across the main home and separate guest accommodation, there are five bedrooms and three bathrooms.

The main house has two wings, with the master bedroom suite on one side and the remaining bedrooms on the other, maximising privacy.

This entertainer’s home comes into its own with a fully functional outdoor kitchen, with a sink, fridge, separate bar fridge and built-in barbeque.

A self-contained granny flat is another highlight, thanks to its amenities: a kitchen, bathroom, main bedroom and two entertainment decks.

“It is detached, which provides privacy for whoever lives there, making it ideal for families looking into dual living,” Jayde says.

Unlike other properties, the main house is set at an angle on the block to take in as much of the green surroundings as possible.

“This house backs right onto the bush,” Jayde says.

“When you wake up, you can see this beautiful view of established trees straight away. You’re living right in nature.

“This is rural living on the coast, which is a lifestyle that I’ve seen grow in demand in recent times. But it doesn’t come around too often!

“The block is not too much to manage – if you wanted to go on holiday, you wouldn’t have to worry about its upkeep.”
