It’s injected with all the features that make up a dream home but for the current owners, it’s now time to move on.

The home at 3 Sanctuary Forest Place in Long Beach was built in 2016 and is three minutes from the golden sands of Long Beach or Maloneys Beach, 10 minutes from the bustling hub that is Batemans Bay, and two hours from Canberra.

The three-bedroom and three-bathroom country mansion, with its glistening timber floors and extravagant details, goes to auction next month, and is expected to fetch more than $1.6 million.

Real estate agent for LJ Hooker Batemans Bay Karen Van Der Stelt says that circumstances have changed for the current owners, “so a lucky purchaser has the opportunity to enjoy all this unique home offers”.

“Every now and then a special home presents to the market and when you walk in it feels just right. You can feel and see the exceptional features the owners have put into their dream home,” Karen explains.

It’s a home built for entertaining and large family gatherings. From the solid hardwood floors to the generous dimensions and sprawling ceiling height, it feels wide and spacious with a relaxing ambience.

The kitchen is a chef’s delight from the large walk-in pantry to the modern pyrotechnic oven, inbuilt microwave, induction cooktop and – for a real touch of class – the classic wood oven and slab-cut red gum benchtops.

There is a large slow-combustion heater ensuring a toasty atmosphere no matter the cold. The billiard table in the massive open-plan living area adds to the entertaining feel and is included as part of the sale.

There are three bedrooms all up, including a master bedroom that comes equipped with a spacious ensuite and walk-in wardrobe,

There is also potential for extra accommodation (or granny flat) in the triple garage as it’s fully lined and has a shower and toilet. A deck connects it to the pool area and house.

The original development approval (DA) has approval (with all fees paid) for an additional semi-detached two-bedroom villa on the property, so there is the option for even more residences if you are looking for in-law accommodation or extra income as an Airbnb (subject to council approval).

The stunning in-ground pool will be a hit with family and friends alike with the external entertaining space and the undercover north-facing balcony an extension of internal living and entertaining space. The deck looks out over the escarpment of lush green lawn.

The picturesque block is a nature lover’s delight and with established fruit trees, vegetables and herbs in a large netted area to create your self-sufficient and unique garden.

There is even something for the car enthusiast or budding handyperson: 22 by 8.5 metres of under-floor garaging and a further 22 by 3.1 meters of undercover storage. The garage can easily accommodate 10 or more vehicles.

Council rates work out at $1,485.64 per annum.

The home at 3 Sanctuary Forest Place, Long Beach is going to auction onsite and online on Saturday, 12 February, at 1 pm.
