Scarborough sanctuary just a short stroll to the Beach.What we love
The commanding, elevated, tri-level design and the cul-de-sac seclusion of this sublime 3 bedroom 3 bathroom residence that, despite its hidden location, still sits only walking distance away from the revamped Scarborough Beach foreshore and its array of café, restaurant and entertainment options. At entry level, a feature front door reveals the spacious open-plan living, dining and kitchen area, warmed by solid timber floorboards and extending outside to a lovely north-facing “sea breeze” front balcony for sitting and relaxing on. There is also access from here, out to a central courtyard entertaining deck with a lined verandah, reachable via a carpeted third or “guest” bedroom suite as well – the latter boasting a walk-in wardrobe and a large shower and stone vanity to its private ensuite bathroom.
A powder room with a stone vanity can also be found on the middle floor, as can a handy internal shopper’s entry door that leads down the an extra-large remote-controlled under-croft double lock-up garage with recessed storage areas. Upstairs, the main zones are all carpeted for complete comfort – inclusive of a huge master suite that is light, bright, has both regular built-in and full-height mirrored built-in wardrobes, opens out to its own front balcony with a tree-lined northern aspect and plays host to a quality ensuite – shower, separate bathtub, granite vanity, frosted-glass toilet door and all. A king-sized second bedroom with a walk-in robe can also be found up here, as can a versatile lounge, parent’s retreat, study, nursery or even fourth bedroom with double doors that ensure peace and quiet. Impressive is an understatement.
What to know
While a striking feature wall graces the main living space, the sleek and stylish kitchen is itself well-equipped with sparkling stone bench tops, glass splashbacks, a breakfast bar for casual meals, double sinks, a double storage pantry and high-end Bosch gas-cooktop, oven and stainless-steel dishwasher appliances. The main upstairs bathroom has a shower and stone vanity, with the separate toilet next door. On the same level is a practical laundry with a linen press, extra storage and outdoor access to the rear drying courtyard and garden.
Extras include ducted reverse-cycle air-conditioning, a security-alarm system, feature shadow-line and stepped ceiling cornices, skirting boards, a Rinnai instantaneous gas hot-water system (with temperature controls), low-maintenance gardens and a side-access gate to the back of the property. Stroll to community sporting facilities at the sprawling Abbett Park complex, with public transport, shopping and top public and private schools also nearby and within arm’s reach. An enviable coastal lifestyle awaits.
