Retro Tree House Overlooking Careel Bay
Built high on the block, with lovely filtered North-facing views across Careel Bay, this wonderfully retro, 1960's architect designed timber home will inspire you to embrace nature and get creative!
With a beautiful sandstone base and a solid timber structure above, there's a wide deck, perfect for entertaining, and inside - soaring raked ceilings, all authentically timber stained and loads of glass designed to showcase the beautiful surroundings. This house offers natural inspiration and highlights a unique symbiosis throughout the design. There's a lot to love in this beach house classic!
At ground level there's a robust double garage whose substantial size offers handy additional storage space. Entry is via the path alongside the garage, which leads up through the flourishing native garden to a timber deck at entry level.
The deep roof-line offers a part-covered deck, with entry directly to the combined living/dining/kitchen. High vaulted ceilings and timber floors run throughout, and a feature sandstone wall separates the kitchen from a sunken dining room - with floor to ceiling glass - overlooking the garden. The combined effect is that it feels like a tree house - and you really do feel part of the landscape.
Steps up from the living room lead to a 'runway' hall, the length of the house, providing access to 4 bedrooms, all with built-in-robes and large windows, a bathroom, separate toilet and laundry. The master really is just that. With a study, a sitting room, a bedroom and ensuite.
There's a lot of room and plenty of scope to reconfigure and update, but the house - just as it is - is strong, and the ambiance is wonderful.
Outside, there's a door through the laundry to the rear, where steps take you up to the essential Hills Hoist, sitting just where it should - to get maximum sun, catch the summer breeze and glimpse the best view! The front offers the same potential, where some planting and landscaping could deliver great results.
Below the house is a neat wine cellar.
At the front, the roof of the garage, offers the base for further potential, perhaps for a separate built space for storage, a home office, teenagers or in-laws...
This place is one of a kind. It's instantly feels like home, yet it is full of possibilities to make it your own. Set in a quiet cul-de-sac, it's just moments to the village, beach, schools and transport.
