Some plots of land are best used by harnessing the powers of an architect to maximise the best views and aspects of the site. The home at 244 George Bass Drive in Lilli Pilli is a perfect example.
It has been architecturally designed to take advantage of the best features of the site, and provide a home with fantastic views, outdoor living on the encompassing decks, and plenty of room for the family, with a self-contained one-bedroom flat on the ground floor.
The first things you notice about the home are the elevated position, and the colourful interior and exterior. The home is set into the hillside, surrounded by established gardens which require virtually no maintenance.
The home is set over two levels, with the foyer entrance leading into the self-contained one-bedroom flat with a kitchenette, and a staircase to the upper level, which has three bedrooms, open plan living, a separate media room and a separate living room, kitchen, laundry, family bathroom and access to the outdoor living on the decks.
The arched corrugated iron roof provides plenty of height in the living areas, allowing cool air to circulate with the assistance of overhead fans. The room is light and spacious, providing a family zone for living and dining, and it opens onto the surrounding deck which has beautiful views, and alfresco dining and living.
The kitchen is well equipped with a bay window overlooking the garden and ample storage. It has stainless steel appliances, a European 900 mm oven and dishwasher.
The kitchen adjoins the open plan dining and family room, and a separate dining room separates the master bedroom from the family room.
The master bedroom suite has a walk-in robe, and a fully equipped ensuite with a shower and a luxurious spa bath, with a round feature window framing a view of the treetops.
The two other bedrooms on the upper floor are very spacious and have access to the family bathroom with its striking combination of black and white floor tiles and a glass vanity unit with exposed stainless steel piping.
The wonderful deck surrounding the ocean side of the home enhances and expands the already ample living space in this home. The view from the decks stretches towards the ocean over the treetops from the elevated site, and shade is provided by trees and a covered area for alfresco dining.
My Agent sales agent Megan Goucher said the home has a great position, and the self-contained flat below is a flexible space with plenty of potential uses.
“The lower level can be used as a self-contained flat, or a guest suite, or a holiday rental,” said Ms Goucher, “or if you have teenagers it makes a great self-sufficient space for them.
“The lower level has a bedroom, bathroom, living space and its own outdoor living areas,” she said.
“I can see the new owners living on the deck in the summertime with a cool breeze coming off the ocean, sipping iced tea and reading, while the kids enjoy the media room and the teenagers sleep in their own self-contained accommodation,” said Ms Goucher.
“This home is one where everyone has their own zone, and there’s plenty of room to either have separate activities or spend time together.”
The home is a two-minute drive to Lilli Pilli beach, around five minutes to Batemans Bay, and just 10 minutes by road to Mogo and Tomakin.
