This comfortable beach home is your perfect holiday getaway to leave the hustle and bustle of Sydney behind. It’s a 300m level stroll away from beautiful Pearl Beach and also backs on to natural bushland.
The home consists of a traditional old original 50’s beach home plus a quaint self-contained ex fisherman’s cabin (see floor plan in photos).
It’s filled with considered touches and beautiful, interesting things – artwork I’ve collected and done myself, favourite magazines and books, junk shop finds, fresh flowers and foliage from my garden, scented candles, loads of votives and bric a brac.
THE HOUSE + CABIN
The house features:-
Master bedroom (queen bed) plus sleep-out (double bed) with leafy outlook.
See floor plan in photos - layout is open plan and may not suit all.
Sunroom with leafy outlook furnished with a comfy chair to read the paper or that book that you’ve been saving for the holidays.
Living room - snuggle up on the modular sofa and watch a movie on the 50inch tv, or play some of your favourite music (by using the bluetooth portable speaker).
For the kids – an undercover area on the verandah if it rains or it’s too hot for delicate young skin.
Private courtyard - Indoors and out blend with the living area spilling out to the private courtyard featuring a BBQ, dining setting for 6 and various seating areas.
Bathroom features a deep bath if you wish to light a scented candle and soak for a while.
Separated from the house (by half a metre) is a quaint self-contained guest cabin, perfect for another couple or teenage children, with complete privacy and bathroom facilities. It feature a sleeping area (queen bed), a seating area, a bathroom with laundry, TV, DVD player and bluethooth portable speaker.
Other important details:-
All windows in the house and cabin are screened, but not the doors.
The house does not have air conditioning or dishwasher
I love the tree-house feel of the house which is achieved via many windows. I have chosen to not use window dressings on all windows (only master bed and lounge area) – if you love complete darkness when sleeping the house will disappoint. Privacy is gained due to the house being up off the street. The cabin can be made completely dark (all windows dressed).
How the house works
Perfect for couples or friends – can comfortably have three couples or six guests (please check the floor plan though as the house is fairly open plan)
Families – the house is perfect for a mum, dad and kids. The cabin is perfect for teenagers.
Extended families – the house and cabin perfectly accommodates parents, grandparents and kids. Grandparents can be accommodated in the cabin.
