This home is evidence of timeless architecture. This classic designed Ray Heffernan home, is both dramatic and imaginative. Constructed in 1991, is as contemporary and modern as if it were designed yesterday.
The street facing faade of this home, complete with lockable entrance gate is incredibly private and gives away no secrets to what lies beyond the front door. Step inside and be mesmerized.

For those who love a grand design, the entry into the home is a visual indulgence. The double height entry foyer has been finely crafted by the Architect. Firstly your eye is drawn upward to the views of the sky through the highlight windows, a breathtaking and uplifting experience. Next through a set of glazed internal doors,
you are invited to take in a garden view glimpsed at the end of an invitingly wide light fitted hallway. Lastly through another set of internal glazed doors your gaze is led through to the warmth of the living room. You have just been given a taste and introduction to the other luxurious and indulgent characteristics this home has to offer.

Beyond the entry foyer is the open plan living and hub of the home. This large space incorporates the kitchen, dining and lounge area. The use of crisp white walls and cupboards combined with the walls of glass opening onto the courtyard beyond is a sight to behold, creating patterns of light as the sun moves throughout the home. There are two sliding doors from the open plan living, which when opened create indoor- outdoor living into the paved courtyard.

The white laminex kitchen is classically designed and accommodates a significant amount of cupboards and drawers. There is even a nook to conceal the kettle and toaster. The kitchen has a breakfast bar, perfect for informal evenings and a leisurely weekend breakfast.

The downstairs accommodation wing of the home is accessed via a hallway with floor to ceiling glass with views to the courtyard and back towards the main living area of the home.

Downstairs there are two well proportioned double bedrooms, both with built in robes. Located away from the master suite and living area, these rooms offer great privacy, perfect for guest or teenager accommodation. The main bathroom and separate toilet with vanity are also located on this level.

The main bathroom is a sight to behold with a curved shower recess which dramatically protrudes into the hallway. The bathroom is tiled in subtle grey, incorporates a spa bath and showcases a large round double glazed skylight for natural light.

Throughout the downstairs area of the home there are a total of 7 sliding doors opening into the garden. Downstairs is warmed by a freestanding wood heater and a reverse-cycle air-conditioner. There is also the option of ducted gas heating throughout the home should the new owner desire as well as several electric panel heaters. There is also the added bonus of 8 solar panels on the roof.

Walking up the stairs invokes a feeling of the home coming to life. The highlight windows from the first floor provide light and views of the sky but as you move from the ground floor to upstairs the windows reveal views of the street, the mountain and suburb beyond.

The study with built in desk is located upstairs, cleverly positioned and complete with internal opening shutters that can be opened to take in the same external view as offered in the stairwell. This room is also positioned to take in the internal view of the stairwell and entry foyer.

Upstairs is the parents retreat; a hideaway and sanctuary from the activities of the home. The master bedroom with curved ceiling is a place of true relaxation, with ample room for a sitting chair or writing table if desired. The master has picturesque views towards Mount Wellington and attracts warming afternoon sun, creating a lovely ambiance.

The walk in robe is enormous with hanging and shelving on both sides and a choice of two entrances. The ensuite bathroom is crisp and white and in keeping with the style of the main bathroom downstairs, has its own large double-glazed round skylight. There is a second reverse cycle-air conditioner upstairs.

Other features which assist to make this home a delight to live in is the suspended concrete slab on the upper level - creating a quiet space in which to live. The windows in the open plan living area have been double glazed with Perspex acrylic - retro fitted to minimize heating loss.

This home truly captures the imagination. It offers large white walls, worthy of beautiful artwork and sculpture to showcase its beauty.

The rear yard is private from neighbours with established fruit trees (including apricot, lime, peach, 3 varieties of apple and cherry). The established vegetable garden includes grape vines, raspberries and a strawberry patch. There are lovely mountain views to be admired from the rear sun-filled garden. There is also a double garage with remote access and a separate workshop.

Located one street back from the beach, a short stroll to the caf's and eateries of Kingston Beach and a short stroll to the dog exercising beach, this home is perfectly positioned to indulge in a fabulous beach-side lifestyle.

Please do not wait for the open home to view this spectacular and individual home. It is unique, well priced and just may not last til then.
