HOUSE OF THE WEEK: Family home tucked away in hinterland
LIVE in the best of both worlds from this picturesque property with ocean and hinterland views.
Hidden on just under half a hectare with a 4,000m2 land size, the home is nestled in the back of Howes Road at Farnborough.
The location provides stunning coastal views amongst the bush hinterland.
The home has been built keeping these views in mind with large banks of glass and louvre windows throughout, capturing that scenery and allowing for the gentle flow of sea breezes.
It has open plan living with two living areas and high ceilings while the flooring is bamboo.
A major focal point is the high quality kitchen with 900mm gas cooking, island bench with waterfall edges, and space for bar stools.
Top of the line stainless-steel appliances, including an extra large oven and drawer cabinetry, have been installed.
The kitchen cupboards are white with light coloured tiled splash back, creating a beachy yet chic home feel.
The upstairs hosts the sleeping quarters with three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The main bedroom opens up to a balcony with more views via two glass sliding doors.
White tiles have been used in the master ensuite with a grainy pebble tile on the floor.
The other bedrooms also have glass sliding doors leading to the garden or deck.
Downstairs, there is a huge rumpus room that can be used as another fourth bedroom, a granny flat, or teenager's retreat.
For car security there is a double lock-up garage plus a fully-insulated two-bay shed.
The shed is currently used as a business showroom and workshop, opening the space up to many opportunities.
It can also be converted back to be used as extra storage for big toys.
