The tropical entertainer - Alfresco style!
The vendors are motivated to sell this property, this is your time to pounce!
Perfect location! Walking distance to Macrossan St, with all the restaurants, cafes and boutique shopping, yet it's right on the beach!
Are you seeking a property right on the beach, that will bring high returns for holiday letting when you're not here? Add to that, this property has very low-cost ownership without Body Corporate levies, its in a very quiet, totally private neighbourhood, with nothing to spend, fully furnished and it's ready to welcome you to the tropics! This could be the one you've been looking for!
The 'Condos' in Garrick St have always been held in high regard, and for very good reason. This location is effectively 'absolute beachfront', only the densely treed beach reserve between you and the beach! This stylish, extremely well-built, architecturally designed property is within easy walking distance of Macrossan St, yet in this quiet, leafy cul-de-sac. The location really is ideal!
Immaculately presented, this elegant beachside villa offers luxurious, timeless design, natural light and an airy feeling, created by the high timber panelled ceilings and the number and size of the window openings. Perfect for our tropical climate, one whole side of the kitchen area opens completely, using ultra-high commercial grade glass sliding doors to create the ideal alfresco entertaining/living space, with a retractable electronic awning, on a timber deck. This decking also extends down the side of the villa to the rear garden and pool area.
The villa is set over two levels with an expansive, 'curved' mezzanine, adding a soft architectural feature. The accommodation offers four spacious bedrooms, each with its own large, marble-tiled ensuite. Two bedrooms are on the ground level, two are upstairs, overlooking the pool at the rear of the property. Imagine sleeping in such a quiet neighbourhood, in a location where you can actually hear the waves lapping on the sands of Fourmile Beach?
The contemporary kitchen has a butler's pantry with ample storage and the large, triple doored fridge/freezer/drinks fridge will make this the perfect entertainer! There's also a huge laundry with additional storage space and another wine fridge! With these features, the villa can cater for large groups of 8 people very comfortably!
The villa is of course fully airconditioned, but for most of the year you'll have everything open, using the cooling through-breeze, straight off the ocean. The mezzanine can lend itself to so many options. Currently a large, open office space, but could be a great kid's bedroom/playroom or separate living room.
At the rear of the property, looking into the Melaleucas in the treed reserve, the oversized pool really reflects the lavishness of the villa. The 8x4m pool is near new and invitingly lit at night with multiple colour options. Enjoy the pool all year round too, with the brand-new pool heater, perfect for the winter months, but it also cools the pool in the summer months!
Additional features include: Electronic security gates to the open carport area, 13.1kw solar panels, a fully irrigated, low maintenance landscaped garden and ambient night lighting.
Live here on a permanent basis, as do the current owners, or holiday-let for strong income, (holiday-let appraisal available on request) this villa is for the astute buyer who seeks a solid investment with high income potential, low maintenance and ownership costs, with everything beautifully maintained ready to enjoy!
