High ceilings, feature windows and a short walk to the beach all combine to offer something special for someone looking for a comfortable coastal change.
The appeal of 73 Sandy Place in Long Beach is clear on arrival, says Elders Real Estate Batemans Bay Principal Rebecca ‘Bec’ Shepheard.
“I think the beauty continues from the moment you walk through the front door.
“Once you’re inside the home, the beautiful cathedral ceilings and the gorgeous timber floors are stand-out elements.”
The five-bedroom and two-bathroom property has been architecturally designed with a northerly aspect.
“The aspect means the sunlight streams in and warms the house with the heat from the sun, saving on heating costs – be it winter or summer,” Bec says.
The private master bedroom wing of the home has an ensuite and corner spa, and two other bedrooms are located downstairs.
The final two bedrooms, located upstairs, are separate from the rest of the home to (potentially) serve as guest rooms, storage or home offices.
Meanwhile, the kitchen has granite bench tops and access through bifold doors to a seperate deck area.
“The whole house wraps around the outdoor entertaining space and ensures access to it from all areas,” Bec says.
“It doesn’t matter where you are in the house – you could be in the kitchen or the main living space and still have easy access to the people that you’re entertaining outside.
“You can look out onto that main deck and be involved in the conversation and festivities that are going on out there.”
The property also has a fire pit situated at the front of the home, ready to chase away the winter chill as the next owners sit with good conversation, laughter and maybe a glass of wine or two.
“That would also be great for toasting marshmallows on cool evenings with the kids, as well,” Bec says.
Outdoor types will be overjoyed to hear outside activities are a part of living in Long Beach, with its dog friendly beaches and access to nearby Murramarang National Park.
“There’s lots of natural wildlife and waterways in the area.
“In this property, you’re far enough out of town to have peace and quiet, but close enough that everything’s still at your fingertips with a short drive,” Bec says.
The property also features landscaped gardens with no lawn-mowing necessary and an outdoor bath and shower (and yes, the bath has hot water).
“If you pull yourself away from your new home, it’s also located directly across the road from the paths that go down to the beach so you have very easy access there.
“And in summer, you can have this beautiful breeze that can blow through from the front right through to the back.”
Bec says a variety of people would be happy in the home, from retirees hoping to entertain to families looking for more space.
“It’s a home that is very easy to take care of with minimal maintenance needs, built in a modern style.
“This is one that offers the full prospect of the coastal lifestyle.
“It is located in a cul-de-sac, meaning it is a bit quieter and there’s not a lot of car traffic.”
