Enjoy sea views at this contemporary coastal boathouse in Rothesay Bay

This recently constructed home is located on an expansive 809m2 property on Garadice Road, one of Rothesay Bay’s sought-after streets.

Rothesay Bay is widely regarded as one of the East Coast Bays’ best kept secrets – a quiet locals beach with no through traffic. It has a large reserve, kids’ playground and safe swimming bay – all just an easy stroll from number 8. The local shops provide a good selection of stores and eateries and school zoning includes Rangitoto College, Browns Bays School and both Murrays Bay and Northcross Intermediate.

Spanning a colossal floor area, perfectly embracing and maximising the elevated freehold site, the immaculate residence has been crafted in a ‘coastal boathouse’ theme. Laidback yet incredibly chic interiors see warm solid timber floors and accents offset with a white wall palette and soaring peaked ceilings. Multi-level living creates excellent separation, with up to five bedrooms, four bathrooms and a generous, practical floorplan catering to large or growing families with ease.

Natural light, sun and panoramic sea views have been beautifully captured from all angles and numerous alfresco living areas create a seamless indoor/ outdoor connection. It’s safe to say the fittings and fixtures throughout match the exemplary quality of the construction and design, creating a comfortable, contemporary living environment.

An impressive street-side presence is a good indication of the dynamic design drama to follow – with stylish cedar, weatherboard and rendered block construction ideal for the conditions. The entry hall steps up to the voluminous living, dining and chef’s kitchen space, where a soaring stud enhances the feeling of space and a profusion of glass showcases the north-facing sea views. A choice of two decks create excellent summer entertaining options, while the wood fire creates a warm and cosy atmosphere during the colder months.

There’s internal access to the double garage and one bedroom on this level, with the remaining accommodation located on both upper and lower floors. Upstairs, two double bedrooms are serviced by the main bathroom, while the decadent master has a walk-in wardrobe, ensuite and floor-to-ceiling windows looking straight out to sea.

There’s another huge bedroom or lounge located on the ground floor, along with a bathroom and separate laundry. This room flows out to a choice of covered outdoor living areas and sprawling lawn. Vast grounds can be freely enjoyed by children and pets as is, or presents the perfect blank canvas for a pool and garden complex or development site (subject to council approval – zoned mixed housing suburban.

This immaculately-presented property is incredibly stylish, functional and family-friendly – a sterling example of high-quality, contemporary coastal living.
