Slotted between the coast and parkland, this privately positioned North Beach home combines sand between your toes with trees over your head, allowing you to be fully immersed in nature.

The architecturally designed home near the Indian Ocean and Star Swamp Reserve guarantees sustainability without compromising on form and function.

Boasting four bedrooms and two bathrooms to allow space for the whole family to enjoy, Realty Lane Director and Property Consultant Daniel Gonzalez said the property was up-to-date with smart building design.

“This contemporary residence offers solar-passive design combined with leading-edge building techniques, achieving an eight-star energy rating,” he said.

Welcoming guests with a feature staircase and pendant lighting in the grand entry, the property oozes luxury and class with the contrast of crisp white finishes and stunning bamboo timber flooring.

The ground floor plays host to the master bedroom, study, store room, laundry and the open-plan living area with designer kitchen, dining and sunken lounge.

The huge carpeted master bedroom is equipped with a walk-in wardrobe and feature bedside pendant lighting, as well as an ensuite.

The large, luxurious ensuite with a shower, double vanity and a separate toilet continues with the style of the home and combines white finishes with feature travertine, while the expansive kitchen provides beauty and functionality for the chef of the family with its gloss-white cabinetry, soft-closing drawers and ample storage options.

“The kitchen is designer and comes with sparkling stone benchtops, a glass splashback and quality appliances,” Mr Gonzalez said.

Setting the scene for a spectacular indoor-outdoor experience, the sunken lounge leads to the alfresco entertaining area which overlooks beautiful private gardens.

“The entertaining area is surrounded by fully reticulated native gardens that have been designed by an Apace landscape architect for a sustainable and easy-care lifestyle,” Mr Gonzalez said.

Upstairs features the sleeping quarters, with two dedicated secondary bedrooms and another versatile option, as well as a main bathroom with full-height tiling, a shower, vanity and a bathtub with a separate powder room.

Bedroom four overlooks the picturesque Star Swamp Reserve treetops and, with its double doors, can be shut off and used as a home theatre, activity space or even a gym/yoga room.

An extra-large double garage ensures there is plenty of room for both parking and storage and boasts a convenient shopper’s entrance and an access door to the rear of the property.

With its convenient location, Mr Gonzalez said the property offered an ideal lifestyle with local amenities at your doorstep.

“It provides a relaxed coastal lifestyle,” he said. “It is a short walk to the bushland reserve, the beach and also walking distance to popular cafes.”

Other features throughout the home include ducted reverse-cycle air-conditioning, a security alarm system and quality window furnishings.

The low-energy lighting combined with the solar-passive design ensures energy efficiency throughout the home.
