Traditional vertical board outside with the style of an architect designed and inspired interior fit out. Comprehensive renovation completed in February 2014 which includes decks on 3 sides, outdoor hot and cold shower and large BBQ for sunny meals on the stunning raised deck area. Completely new internal renovation includes new kitchen and beautiful bathroom. Main living space easily dividable via glass sliding screens to form separate rooms if privacy is required or to make the space more cosy on cold winter nights. The internal layout is fully open planned. There is a permanent queen sized bed and a permanent single bed. Both can be screened from the main living area. Sofa bed is easy to make up and comfortable and can sleep 2. Lie in the luxurious bed with memory foam topper, silky sheets and watch the sun rise across the bay through the Eastern windows. Look up and see the stars through the double glazed window above the bed and sleep to the gentle sounds of the waves on the beach, only 15 metres from your door. Relax on the day bed with views to the west over Pipeclay Lagoon to Mt Wellington. To the east you can dream away the hours birdwatching or checking the activity of the boats as they come and go from the lagoon to fish the abundant waters of Frederick Henry Bay.
After a day of enjoying the perfect peace of the sandtemple watch the sun set with a glass of wine on the Western deck. Once you arrive you will find it hard to leave.
