You want views with that?
Situated on a quiet country lane with spectacular views of the coast, Illawarra Escarpment and the catchment land toward Sydney, is the stunning single level 4 bed, 3 bath, 2 car story book home, ‘Beaumont’.
Meander up the 350 metre tar-sealed driveway through the park-like garden with a mix of established European and native trees and shrubs, stone walls, hedges and pond with water lilies, to the gorgeous rendered brick home set high on 5 acres just below the summit of Mount Murray, one of the highest points in the Illawarra escarpment.
Boasting uninterrupted 230 degree views over catchment and coast this is a stunning example of modern, tasteful living with superbly proportioned rooms designed to ensure light, warmth and views in equal measure. Entertaining is easy with a terrace to the north, a paved courtyard and outdoor dining area on the south side adjacent to the built-in gas barbeque and raised beds with herb garden and citrus trees, and a large covered terrace to the east that captures views across the escarpment, down to Shellharbour and to the horizon beyond.
Inside is beautiful. The polished blackbutt floors that extend throughout the home are accentuated by a neutral palate, an abundance of natural light, clever lighting and coffered ceilings. The smart floorplan ensures the bespoke kitchen with gas cooktop, electric oven, walk in pantry and custom cabinetry is the focal point of the house and the dining space that adjoins the kitchen opens through a glass door to the eastern terrace. Built in cabinets, a slow combustion fire and internally wired speakers make this the perfect entertaining area.
Turn left from the entry hall with it’s unique circular framed picture window, sculpture display niche and hall cloak storage into a living room with gas fire, built-in book cases and cabinetry. The substantial views to the east and north provide the perfect outlook.
Beyond the kitchen is a large and very tasteful library complete with built-in bookcases, custom cabinets and gas fire. This large and welcoming room with a northerly aspect is wired for sound and includes a large screen TV. The separate NBN & Foxtel satellite connections ensure you can easily work from home and access all your favourite shows and online information.
The three to four bedrooms (fourth currently a 2nd office & comes complete with custom cabinets) all have built-in robes and are all good size. The master bedroom with access to the eastern terrace includes a very large modern ensuite with freestanding bath, toilet, bidet, and shower. An additional large and very smart walk-in robe includes ample overhead storage.
Other significant features include a large second bathroom with shower, bath, a separate WC and a powder room. The laundry has been designed with cabinetry concealing the washing machine and dryer, has a built-in ironing station and includes plenty of additional storage. Double glazed windows, revere cycle ducted air conditioning, gas fire and a slow combustion wood fire ensures year round comfort.
Separate to the house is a large double garage that includes high lift remote controlled roller doors to accommodate 4WD or SUV vehicles, a good sized wine cellar, storage cupboards and stairs to a loft room (the perfect teenage retreat).
Outbuildings include two double garage-sized steel sheds, one with power and a separate wood shed, and there are four 5000 gallon water tanks (90,000 litres storage).
This is a truly stunning, peaceful and private sanctuary. Beautifully designed and set amongst an expansive garden that allows plenty of wildlife including wallabies, king parrots, rosellas, black and white cockatoos, bower birds, wrens and kookaburras, ‘Beaumont’ is the perfect lifestyle property.
