Grand and welcoming and moments from the ocean, this Edwardian property is so close to the beach you see the water clearly at the end of the street.

The deep triple-pitched roofline is part of an extension that combined two smaller Edwardian properties at least more than 20 years ago but you wouldn’t spot it. It is a perfectly integrated design. The result, together with more recent high-quality renovations, combine to create a large family residence that harnesses light and space.

The established gardens, wide frontage and deep side paths on either side of the property create a perfectly-proportioned first impression.

Enter through a leadlight door to chestnut hardwood flooring and a stately carpeted front sitting room with a refurbished fireplace including its Edwardian timber surround. Soaring ceilings, plantation shutters and high skirting boards set a mood replicated throughout.

The main bedroom opposite the hall has similar period features. Its en suite has floor-to-ceiling matte marble tiling and a walk-in robe to the side. The subtle deep matte plum cabinetry matches the bespoke vanity with twin bowl-style basins.

Pass the two-flight stairwell to the main living areas.

A generous formal dining with an original restored fireplace opens to a sprawling open-plan kitchen, meals and living area, with no-less than 16 sash windows, flooding the area with light.

The kitchen has all the usual high-end specifications such as Caesarstone benches, walk-in pantry, high-end appliances and plenty of Blum

soft-closing cabinetry.

The casual meals area is set within a large bay window and looks out to the deep undercover deck and lawn.

Brick paving in the front yard complements the brick and picket front fence, entry path and side-way, and leads to the solar-heated pool with its pavilion-cum-garage with integrated storage shed, all period-sensitive of course.

Four further bedrooms are upstairs, two with study nooks and all but one with built-in robes.

Split-system units downstairs are complemented by ducted refrigerated cooling upstairs and hydronic heating is in every room.
