Stunning Island Home with Ocean Views

This historic and beautiful home was built in the late 1940s and has been lovingly renovated, whilst still maintaining the stunning character features found in that era of building - such as high ceilings, timber floorboards, large fireplace, casement multi-paned windows and timber french doors. It is these details which, sensitively restored, provide so much character to the home and set it apart from so many properties on the market.

The home comprises a wide entrance hall which leads to two double bedrooms both with large windows looking out to lovely gardens. A neatly renovated bathroom enjoys a new pedestal basin and walk in shower - all tiled in white subway for maximum impact and period finish. A 12m long sunroom/sleep-out has been re-purposed as bedroom at one end and office space at the other, however the options are endless with a versatile floor plan like this home.

The lounge room has the original feature fireplace and high quality furniture and fittings, including newly installed ceiling fans in matte black - which make this a room to be enjoyed, all year round. A spacious deck is accessed through large glass doors, enabling real indoor/outdoor living. The deck boasts views out to the ocean across green valleys. A country style kitchen with stainless steel appliances, including a new stove and stylish kitchen sink, tie the new and the old styles together seamlessly. From the kitchen there is access to a light-filled breakfast room and separate dining area.

This home comes completely furnished with teak bedroom furniture, suede leather chaise and chair in the lounge, lovely mango wood dining table with high-backed chairs, cane day bed and tub chairs … the list goes on. Fisher and Paykel white goods purchased new in 2016 will also be included. This property will be left with everything you need … right down to bed linen, knives and forks, kettle, toaster …and lawn mower, garden tools … you name it! 

A brand new garage has been built on the property which matches nicely with the home and adds considerable convenience. In addition to this, a high quality Jakmat/gravel driveway extends from the road to the home, There are two water tanks on the property, water purifying system and solar hot water system.

Set in beautiful grounds with English style country gardens, the fully-fenced land comprises over a hectare and has many avocado trees, an orange tree and red and yellow guava trees. The property has been extensively cleared to the south-east, opening up panoramic views to the ocean. There is also an historic and rustic 3-room shed on the property (dating back to the early 1900s) which, though not renovated, has power, has been re-roofed and recently been used as an artist’s studio. As an existing building under the Norfolk Island Plan, this shed could be further renovated to comprise a lettable cottage, also with views to the ocean. This home is a delight and would be a perfect down sizer property, or classy holiday home.
