Some owners on this golden North facing stretch of Ilford Avenue spend years waiting for an opportunity to buy knowing the gently undulating blocks leading calmly down to the water’s edge offer some of the best waterfront features available. Other people stumble across it by chance. Whatever your position, trust that you have found a location here that will afford you the balance of natural sunlight, a protected bay and road to water vehicle access.
A modern extension to this home has doubled the size, but more importantly created a relaxed spacious indoor and outdoor living area that frames the water outlook perfectly. Offering separate living areas, the stringy-bark timber floors have recently been re-sanded, with the shine from the flooring offset by the crisp white tones of the kitchen and smoky haze glass splash back. Built by Art Form Kitchens with Caesar stone bench tops, island bench, soft close draws, walk in pantry, two appliances cupboards and induction cook top, this is the hub of the home overlooking the family / dining room and large private entertaining deck, that makes entertaining friends and family a dream.
Beautiful inside and out, with 3 spacious bedrooms all with built ins and main bedroom with en-suite, walk in robe and stunning views of Lake Macquarie looking out to Buttaba and Fishing Point. The raked ceilings in the bedrooms give an added spacious feel.
There is a large sitting room as you enter the home which could be used as a home office or a children’s play area, a separate lounge room, ducted reverse cycle air conditioning with 4 zones through the home & a split system unit to ensure you stay comfortable all year round. Plus the lovely north easterly breezes make summer a delight. Both electricity and hot water are powered by solar panels.
Generous side access to the backyard & waterfront is a huge bonus, which leads to the 10.2 x 6m garage/workshop situated underneath the rear of the home and is extremely spacious with additional under home storage. The yard is fully fenced with remote control gate access and plenty of off street parking for those who may have several vehicles, boats, caravans or just like the extra space.
The waterfront amenities include private jetty, slipway & large boatshed. This is a practical style waterfront, appealing to all ages of the family.
