Built five years ago on a 506 square metre block, the property at 16 Selwyn Street features a four-bedroom house and versatile self-contained two-bedroom apartment separated by a plunge pool.

Designed around entertaining, the home has an all-weather 47 square metre outdoor covered area with a built-in barbecue. Sliding stacker doors allow for seamless indoor-outdoor living transitions.

A chef’s kitchen has two ovens and butler’s pantry. There is a sound-proof media room and study on ground level and all four bedrooms are upstairs, including a master suite.

Other features include ducted air conditioning, security system and a double garage with internal access.

But the property’s point of difference is the self-contained apartment at the rear of the property, which can be used as a home office, family accommodation or potential Airbnb income. It has its own kitchen, bathroom, two bedrooms and verandah.

The owners told the Newcastle Herald they have loved the ease of living, being able to entertain at home and walk or cycle to the beach, schools, shops, cafes and restaurants.

Street Property’s Damon Sellis is marketing the property, which he said offers “a lot of value for your money in that location”.

A guide has not been set but expectations are believed to be above $2 million.
