A WONDERFUL island lifestyle, cutting-edge design and an absolute beachfront position – what else could a homeowner ask for?
With the rare benefit of title to the high-water mark, this outstanding contemporary building makes a unique and appealing addition to the suite of holiday homes that enjoy an exclusive location above the sandy stretch of Nebraska Beach.
Clad in oiled vertical hardwood and designed as an offset pair of connected pavilions, the building’s rear door opens to an entrance hallway that links the two, with a large picture window at the end hinting at the expansive panoramas to come.
Turning to the right from the hallway is the bedroom pavilion, with three bedrooms and a bright bathroom/toilet with glass-enclosed rainhead shower.
The master bedroom, with its window framing the view, is at the front of this pavilion.
Full-height glass sliders give access from the master bedroom to the spacious deck at the north west-facing front of the house. To the left of the hallway is the heart of the building – the kitchen, dining and living area, which opens to the deck.
There is a practical galley kitchen and an island bench with sink.
This space flows through to the living area, with a pair of comfortable lounges, a huge feature window at the front and stacking sliding glass doors that completely open the side of the living space to the outside.
The fourth bedroom is at the rear of this pavilion.
There is ample rainwater storage and a modern wastewater treatment system. The rear driveway area has parking for three cars.
Adjacent is a gravelled outdoor living area with timber screens protecting dryland plantings and a firepit.
From the deck, a path alongside a stone retaining wall leads down on timber steps through native poa grasses to reach the beach.
As a final bonus, this unique property has its own boat shed on the title.
Completed in 2019 and operated successfully since then as short-term accommodation as well as the owners’ personal weekend retreat, the home looks out across the D’Entrecasteaux Channel with sweeping and uninterrupted views of the mountains beyond North West Bay, the hills of Tinderbox and Mt Wellington.
The Jetty Cafe and gallery are a kilometre or so away and it’s a 20-minute drive to the ferry terminal at Roberts Point.
Properties with an absolute waterfront location on Nebraska Beach come on the market very rarely and tend to attract wide interest.
