This is certainly one of City Beach's largest landholdings. Not only that it is one of the suburb's very best locations. A short stroll to the all-new City Beach Waterfront, this home is mere footsteps to the water's edge for your morning swim, the primary school for school drop off or the Empire Village for an evening meal/drink/ catchup with friends and 24-hour convenience shopping, this is one of the most walkable precincts in the entire suburb allowing you to park the car on the weekends and experience all that this wonderful suburb has to offer on foot.
Absolutely pancake flat, this landholding is not only large, the entire site is completely usable. A corner site, it has two expansive street verges doubling its verge appeal and street presence, one of which is northern bathing the home in winter sunshine.
Situated in one of the suburbs most sought after precincts "West of Kapinara", where getting to the beach track through the dunes is as simple as following the ocean views to the end of your whisper quiet local-traffic-only street. There would surely be no more premium site in the suburb for you to build a grand contemporary home that you will enjoy forever.
The existing home is immaculately maintained and ready to live now. "Ranch Style" it is an expansive single level home and sprawls effortlessly across the breadth of the large coastal paddock on which it sits. At the formal end of the home there is a large lounge and dining area warmed by a traditional feature open fireplace, as well as a big master bedroom, en-suite, guest powder room and study. At the other end the children's wing consists of four large minor bedrooms, a bathroom and a games room. In the center, connecting these two zones, is a third family and informal meals area and generous kitchen. All living areas open to undercover surround verandahs and adjacent lawns and gardens, which envelop the below ground pool on the sun drenched northern side of the home.
Whilst beautiful as is, this home's outstanding "bones", floorplan and orientation in respect to the natural elements make it a wonderful contender for a contemporary makeover and re-imagining into a crisp and sharp modern beach home of whatever mood and styling your heart desires. Solid double brick construction, wonderfully high ceilings, and excellent family design and separation provide it with endless possibilities in this regard.
A second storey redevelopment would harvest a wonderful ocean view, capturing the vivid orange sun sinking into the Indian Ocean at the end of the street at the end of each day. The flexibility of corner site choice of setbacks allows you to embrace the available views to the west more than the other homes on the street.
Not big enough for a standard subdivision at the current time, the home may however be eligible for an over 55's subdivision with the development bonuses this would provide. (Space Real Estate make no representations in this regard and buyers should make all enquiries of this nature directly to the Town of Cambridge).
