Superb lifestyle plus effortless income!
Sheltered in the lee of Karbeethong Hill and enjoying 3000 plus sqm of maintained gardens, this architect designed North facing home comes with a view that is unsurpassed in Mallacoota. Panoramic views, extending from Gabo Island, across the bottom lake, around to the Narrows with the Howe Ranges forming a beautiful backdrop, are complimented by the ever-changing colors and moods of the sea and sky.
The house is divided into two separate living sections, the main house completed in 2008 features all-round, double-glazed sliding doors, all steel framing and cladding, offset with sandstone concrete reinforced blocks. Polished hardwood floors throughout the upper floor, fully carpeted below.
The smaller section (The Studio) is a rustic, mudbrick and glass self-contained apartment, with bathroom renovations completed in 2018.
Both sections of the house are centred over the land title covering 34-36 Karbeethong Avenue, Mallacoota. 32 Karbeethong Avenue, Mallacoota is a separate title which includes a workshop and shed, with utilities connected. The orchard offers over 10 varieties of fruit and citrus trees.
The 'wow' factor in the main house is immediately apparent on entering the front door. Looking across the large open plan entrance with celestial windows, lounge with Jetmaster Quandra-fire and and dining area, through to a full length balcony with uninterrupted water views.
Around to your left is the open plan master bedroom , providing unbelievable sunrises and sunsets. Concertina opaque glass doors close off the area, should the occasion need. A large walk-in-wardrobe is concealed behind the bedhead and main bathroom with large bathtub and separate shower. Close by is a powder room with rough edged iron bark bench and hand basin.
The kitchen boasts magnificent granite benches and all the best modern conveniences, including Bosche dishwasher, Delonghi upright gas top dual electric ovens and Westinghouse two door fridge/freezer. Soft closing drawers and cupboards, walk in pantry providing ample storage. The double opening glass doors onto the balcony provide another entertaining area, superb for enjoying breakfast, lunch, dinner or just cocktails! 'Gin & Tonics' on the balcony!!
Below the elegant timber and iron circular staircase are two large bedrooms, a large rumpus room/office room and a separate bathroom/laundry, opening onto a full-length verandah bordered by gardenia bushes. Another magical place for morning teas or casual brunches.
Outside, adjacent to the main house is a lower-level sun-catching deck with a 6000 litre heated Signature Bull Frog Swim Spa. A wonderful entertainment area with almost all year-round sun, protected from the breeze by large glass panels. 'A glass of bubbles amongst the bubbles overlooking the lake is about as good as it gets!' The deck opens onto a fully caged vegetable garden with raised irrigated beds and espaliered white nectarines and peach trees. Adjacent to the pool area is a large airconditioned room with hot water and outdoor shower, currently used as a picture framing and painting workshop. This area offers many potential uses - gym, pool room or home office.
