You will love this large family home close to lakes and ocean, with excellent views. The white colorbond steel roof is double insulated and the walls are also insulated. It has 4 or 5 bedrooms, 3 with large robes, 2 bathrooms, ducted air conditioning, a double garage/workshop with remote door control and carport. There is an undercover drying area facing North.
The foyer with garden and glass wall rises to a 4.2 metre ceiling large lounge and continues to the kitchen and dining rooms at this height giving a feeling of spaciousness.
Illumination is from 3 huge 1200 x1200 mm skylights which also contain the fluro lighting for economy. A large chandelier hangs in the lounge and a smaller one in the dining room, both with dimmers.
The kitchen has dishwasher, double sink, ceramic halogen cook tops and fan-forced oven. It also has a semi-walk-in pantry and open fridge area to accommodate a really large fridge and freezer. The sink is hidden from guests by a raised servery counter.
Adjoining in open plan is a rumpus area with walk-in cupboard. Alongside is a closed verandah play/gym area with large shelves and garage access. There is also an intimate open verandah deck for coffee or BBQ with lake view.
The large master bedroom has a bay window, ensuite and walk-in robe with mirrored doors. A hallway bypasses the main living area to connect 2 bedrooms, which have large built-in robes, to the bath and toilet. The hall has an external sink/mirror at one end to reduce 'waiting times.' The main bath is a self heating spa and has an adjacent shower. Both showers are large with flexible variable heads.
The hallway leads into the laundry with an external undercover drying area, 5 steps from the washing machine. The air conditioner fan blows around the clotheslines. It faces north for maximum sun.
Upstairs is a large bedroom and a huge utility room with good lake views. It could also be a fifth bedroom. It is also ideal as a separate living area for a family member or two.
There is a full ducted air-conditioner which is aided by the white steel roof with double roof insulation and also insulated walls and the slab floor. The house maintains a good constant temperature with minimum air conditioning. With 47 degrees outside, the house held 32 degrees inside with no air conditioner on. Internal windows strategically placed conduct light to garage, wardrobe, passageway and sink without requiring lighting, which is still available of course. Locking doors access air conditioner and ceiling areas.
The large garage has a small workshop area and access to foyer while the roof has a good storage space. The double door is remote controlled. At front is a large driveway with side parking for boat/trailer and a good sized lawn. The kids will love 80 sq mtr of flat driveway for skateboards and pedal cars, etc
The steel frame rates the house at 200 km/hour continuous winds and it resists insect attack. The North facing large roof would accommodate a big solar panel array.
There are a high school and primary school 4 streets away and a Coles shopping centre 1 km away. At the top of the street is a walking/cycling path and also at the bottom of the street is several kilometres of walking/cycling path beside the Budgewoi Lake. There are also 3 boat launch-ramps into this 3 lake system, which has great fishing.
Quick access to the F3 and north to Newcastle is a great feature and 12 minutes drive to the ocean beach, without the damp and rust problems of living beside it. At night the Norah Head lighthouse flashes in the Southern windows. This is a big family home in a great location where hundreds come for their holidays.
