Days Bay Sensation!

This big and brilliant property nestles amid beech forest and is moments from the beach, park, tennis courts and the commuter ferry. Intended as their forever home, the owners recently completed its almost total refurbishment. With the need to relocate, they reluctantly now offer it for sale. A new roof, new drainage, argon-filled double-glazing, wall and ceiling insulation, extensive re-cladding, plumbing and wiring, new decking, kitchen, three of the four bathrooms; the list goes on. There are stunning views of the sparkling harbour throughout a versatile three level floor plan. The 4/5 bedrooms and 3/4 living rooms make this a perfect haven for families, anyone who works/consults from home, accommodating guests and Airbnb. There is so much to see, so view asap and prepare to move in soon!

The approach to this handsome home is via series of recently constructed steps. Not too many and well worth the climb. There are several access points; the present owners' favourite is via the kitchen.

With simply thrilling views across the harbour, the lounge flows from the kitchen. Cavity sliders create separation if required. French doors open to the sun drenched deck to the front and, to the rear, a coastal scene lead light window reflects this gorgeous location.

When you seek a private, casual haven away from the main hub of the house, you will be enticed to this tranquil space. On the upper floor and adjoining the master bedroom, it is the perfect place to sit with a good book. A compact kitchenette enables you to make a cuppa right there. A sun trap, with added winter warmth from a Bosca wood burning stove.

Yet another room with a sensational view. Beside the kitchen, with polished timber floor. French doors open this room to the deck and lawn..A wonderful place to dine and entertain.

The heart of the home. Crafted from Fijian kauri, the kitchen offers so many luxuries to make this a great space and for meal preparation to be simple and enjoyable.

Sun, views and resources combine. A wood fired Rayburn stove for winter warmth and cooking, a double Smeg electric oven for the warmer months, a big island bench with breakfast bar.

Watch the cruise ships come and go - you won't be envious!
