This is the nearest you will get to beach frontage without walking straight onto the sand. No roads to cross just a grass reserve and you are on Freers Beach, Shearwater which is arguably one of Tasmania's most desirable Real Estate beach front locations.
This property is one that can be best described as a classical lifestyle property, at the beach, with a grass parkl and for recreation that you don't have to maintain, numerous entertainment areas, 4 or 5 bedrooms for family, friends and guests, sauna, elevated and sheltered decking areas to enjoy waterfront estuary views from dawn to sunset and starlight skyscapes. From a recreational and lifestyle point of view apart from the beach access for leisure and watersports, Shearwater Resort and Golf Course are only approximately 500 metres away, many great fishing sites are accessible on the coast and within the estuary from the shores or the boat ramps available in Shearwater and Port Sorell. Shops and facilities are also just approximately 500 metres away.
The home is three level brick, with three bedrooms on the ground level, master bedroom, kitchen, dining, main living areas and sun deck on the first floor, with a mezzanine bedroom or studio on the second level (or third floor). The ground floorhas the main bathroom which also features a sauna, while the first floorhas a walk through bathroom ensuite combination. There is also an outdoor shower on the decking to wash away the sand and salt when coming back in from the beach reserve, hot water is via a gas instant hot water unit to cater for extended use if a large number of showers are required during the day, and without waiting for cylinders to re-heat. An 8 kilowatt reverse cycle air conditioning unit assists with maintaining climate control in all seasons when required.
The entry to the home may be via the garage, or the security gate and terracotta tiled outdoor patio area with water feature. Both entrances access a glassed atrium foyer featuring a continuation of the terracotta tiled floor. This is an ideal reception area and with the mezzanine style access to the first floor dining and lounge areas as well as second floor studio-bedroom, even large gatherings of family and friends are never out of touch. Each floor is accessed by a wrap-around timber stair case, even the landings are a good meeting point.
The home features expansive glassed areas, particularly the atrium with tinted glass to fully utilise natural light and to allow full appreciation of the expansive coastal panorama, and these are blended with exposed beams and natural timbers featured throughout the home. The home has a range of cooking and dining options from preparation in the kitchen in more traditional fashion, to barbecue on the deck, patio or in the atrium as you would expect to be a feature in such a location, and there is also the added bonus of a purpose built wood fired pizza oven. There is a formal dining area adjacent to the kitchen on the first floor mezzanine, and a range of outdoor settings.
The lounge is a pleasant open area designed for light and to allow for the open air atmosphere, accessing the deck through sliding double doors. The deck has 'sails' installed to allow for some shade area without restricting air flow.
The bedrooms are all well above average size, all capable of accommodating King or Queen size beds. Three of the bedrooms feature walk in or built in robes. One of the three downstairs bedrooms, features an additional room that could be used as sitting room-study, or an infants room to be closed off for sleep and play, or indeed could be used as a sixth bedroom if needed.
With most residential properties it is about the home, with this property you cannot talk about the property without giving the highest attention to the lifestyle opportunity it provides, both with the design of the home, and the location and all the benefits it brings together as a package. The property has a number of security measures with remote access double garage, alarm system installed in the residence, and securely fenced yard for children and pets as well as areas simply for family privacy and visibility. The yard, paved patio and deck areas are all established to be low in maintenance to keep the emphasis on lifestyle living.
Along with the double garage there is also paved parking off road for at least two vehicles. For a purchaser wishing to have this outstanding property as a second residence there is also the option of negotiating the purchase of the home fully furnished.
