It’s in the prized Rifle Range estate, but this double-storey residence has the additional cachet of direct parkland access via a gate in the back garden. The parkland links with the wonderful Jawbone Reserve and wetlands, as well as the bay beyond. The restful vistas are best experienced from a large rear balcony off the main living domain.

The distinctive roofline comes into play internally, with the tall ceiling in the upper-level living hub replicating its arc, while square clerestory windows and bulkheads supplement architectural character. Wall paint is white, carpet is grey, hardwood floorboards are matte and windows come with streamlined rollerblinds.

Up top, there’s an expansive family-meals space, and – behind double doors – a lounge room with french doors to the front balcony. The family room’s split-system and contemporary gas log fire provide a retreat from the variables of a seaside climate.

The kitchen is a sleek affair, with charcoal-toned seamless cabinetry and stone benches. It’s equipped with top-notch Miele appliances.

The fourth fitted bedroom (with split-system) is also up here – across the way from a powder room and walk-in storage area.

The remaining three fitted bedrooms, including the main, are downstairs, as are the laundry and the main bathroom with enclosed toilet.

The expansive main bedroom at the back has a walk-in robe behind an island wall, as well as a smart dual-basin en suite with stone-topped vanity, white subway tiling, and a tub and shower in the walk-in wet area.

Underscoring the main bedroom’s haven feel, a glass slider opens to a north-facing timber deck nestled within a pristine garden setting.

Also in the frame are ducted heating and cooling and a double garage that adjoins a storage room.

Surrounded by parklands in all directions, the property is four minutes by car from Bayside P-12 College, Woolworths and the train station, with the swimming beach just a little farther.
