Unique oasis

This is a unique and very private property. In the centre of 26 acres approximately, the house is nestled in 3 acres of garden, native trees and grevilleas.

The original home comprises three bedrooms, all with built-ins and floor to ceiling windows, the main bedroom with ensuite, family bathroom, and mud room and laundry. The bedrooms adjoin the downstairs living room with wood fire and sliding doors to the covered veranda.

The present owners have extended the original home to create a bespoke living space.

A curved staircase leads to the new kitchen, living rooms and dining spaces, with cathedral ceilings and exposed red beams. The extension is totally insulated with double glazed picture windows to maximise sunlight and views from sunrise to sunset with one window for moon gazing!

The space suggests many uses, the present owners having established a dining area, a coffee bar and a breakfast bar for morning sun. The kitchen, wood fuelled cooker and the walk-in pantry were the essentials when planning this extension.

The cooker has two ovens and cooktop and effectively heats the entire space. There is an induction cooktop for the warmer months, dishwasher and loads of storage.
There is a covered deck facing Betsy Island, French doors to a generous NW sundeck and a private veranda where birdsong combines with the pulse of the Southern Ocean.

Warm in winter, cool in summer, an outside area for all occasions, and in the owner's words "peace and privacy and a real sense of community".
There are many added benefits to living in South Arm including the golf course at one end and launch your kayak out the front into the sheltered waters of Ralphs Bay or go surfing or beachcombing on beautiful Hope Beach (mostly called Roaring Beach by locals).
