A complete makeover has transformed this Newport beauty into a luxurious family retreat.
Situated on one of the suburb’s sought-after cul-de-sacs, and with its own pontoon, it offers an unparalleled waterfront lifestyle.
Selling agent Andrew Reibelt says the current owners’ attention to detail is reflected in the stylish living areas and outdoor amenities, starting with a stunning entry capped by a cascading light fixture spilling from the second floor void.
“The entertainment area is the focal point - there’s a built-in bar and it has its own beer on tap.”
The centrepiece of the home is a spacious kitchen, which overlooks the rumpus, family and covered outdoor entertaining area.
“The kitchen overlooks where the kids would be – the expanse of the garden across to the pontoon,” Mr Reibelt says.
Rounding out the ground floor are a dedicated home theatre, fifth bedroom, and laundry with generous storage and bathroom.
A drop-down fire pit anchors a vast entertainment area overlooking the pool, with views across the canal.
Mr Reibelt says another feature of the property is its two driveways – one to service cars and the other suitable for a caravan or boat.
Upstairs is home to a parents’ retreat with large ensuite and walk-in robe, two bedrooms with built-in robes and a third with its own walk-in rob, as well as a central bathroom and separate toilet.
Other features of the property include blackwood flooring, automatic gates, electric internal blinds, a zoned speaker system and heated towel racks.
The home is for sale by negotiation.
