The house is truly eco-friendly with a north easterly aspect on the side of a hill with solar panels, large open decks, tinted glass doors, led lights, 2 large led tv’s 42", skylights, screened louvers and extensive insulation.
Upstairs, the open plan living room with comfortable lounge suite, dining and kitchen area flows out to a huge 16m covered east and 4m north facing deck, perfect for entertaining or just enjoying the ocean and leafy views and listen to the wonderful bird life. The main bedroom has a king sized bed, opens onto the deck, private study/reading area and opens onto the side deck.
Downstairs is a similar layout but slightly smaller. Again the open plan living room with comfortable lounge suite and dining area flows onto the huge 16m covered east and 4m north facing dec.
