Point Howard Paradise

During the recent and extensive refurbishment of this 1970s Ian Athfield designed home, the owners meticulously retained the distinctive character they love. The result is an immaculate blend of architectural creativity and conventional, modern comfort. Across 3/4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a series of living rooms, there is always a perfect spot to suit your mood, the weather and occasion. And always a stunning view. The third bedroom (ensuite) is in a spacious studio above the garage, and is perfect for teenagers, guests or airbnb. Set amid native bush and established gardens, there is a brilliant workshop, masses of storage space and a double garage just steps from the front door. After 16 years in this multi-dimensional home, our vendors are reluctantly leaving to move north. This is your chance to wake up every day with these incredible views. Call me asap to view - this exciting home will make your heart sing! For Sale By Negotiation From $1,400,000.

Drive to your double garage, which is beside the welcoming front door.

This light, bright room is the main hub of the home and is open plan to the kitchen and dining area. Its five double glazed windows and French doors to the deck maximise a dramatic harbour outlook. Each is adorned with Italian linen blinds. A room full of character, with a sloping ceiling, French Oak timber floorboards and built-in cupboards. A heat pump, gas fire and 4 skylights ensure the most pleasurable environment year round.

The hexagonal form of the turreted sun room has 5 floor-to-ceiling windows, an immaculate terrazzo tiled floor and doors that open to the rear brick paved patio and gardens. The perfect foil to a sunny but windy day - bring a book and a beverage to suit the time of day!

Extended in 2010, the open plan kitchen has everything needed to create great food while remaining in touch with the view, family and friends. The benchtops are made from NZ Elm and the already generous cabinetry is supplemented by a walk-in pantry.

1. Lazy weekends begin here - enjoy the views and morning sunshine from the comfort of your bed. With bi-folding doors to the deck and two walk-in-wardrobes this will become your private haven. There is a heat pump and the floor is carpeted. Connected to the main bedroom is one of the hexagonal turret rooms. Currently used as an office for its spectacular outlook, it has a wall radiator, Victorian tiled fireplace (not in use) and a lockable door providing separate external access. This could also be a perfect, private living room for the master bedroom.

2. The recent refurbishments included restoration of the original stained glass and sash windows in this double room. The ensuite shower room, timber cathedral ceiling, door to the rear patio and stunning sea views make this a truly gorgeous room to wake up in. A radiator and smoke detector are installed. The adjoining sauna, with doors to the garden, is understood to require a new control box to function.

A cathedral ceiling fits with the character of the home. There is a double fitted wardrobe, hot water cupboard, kitchenette (with bar fridge) and a lovely ensuite bathroom with stained glass window.
