nly takes one look to know that this spectacular home perched above Whale Beach is something special. From the street level, you enter from the driveway (with one off street car space available) ascending a wooden staircase wrapped in tangled climbing plants, emerging onto a bottom level featuring a home gym and living area. This is a marvellous place to kick back on your own or work up a sweat while drinking in the Pacific Ocean panorama. Ascending another flight of greenery-clad stairs, you enter into the house proper via full length sliding doors from the front deck. You’ll immediately be struck by the tasteful design, with blonde floorboards and whitewashed cabinetry bringing to mind the tasteful seaside homes of Europe and North America. Featuring various bedrooms, an indoor/outdoor living space, magnificent views and a study nook, this level can also function as a rumpus room or kids escape. Up another set of stairs, past original artworks and mirrors reflecting the deep blue of the sea, you find yourself in the main living area. This space is designed to be opened to the sun and salty breezes, with a spacious balcony looking directly onto Whale Beach. If the weather is looking dark and stormy, you’ll be able to enjoy the sandstone fireplace. Either way, the state-of-the-art kitchen with marble benches and a huge island is ideal for preparing family meals and looks onto a unique atrium enclosing the monolithic sandstone hillside. But it doesn’t stop. There’s one more level to go: a colossal outdoor living area/deck with a full outdoor kitchen and dining area including a fire pit and terraced garden featuring succulents and sub-tropical plants. This is the space that brings everyone together, a place to appreciate the sweeping view and enjoy the best beach getaway of your life.
