This renovated home across the road from the beach is like a tropical hidden haven that you will never want to leave.
With fresh, neutral tones throughout, the coastal feel is perfect for this corner of the world, which is renowned for its natural, underdeveloped beauty.
Owner Lynette Wooley and her husband Darryn are long-term Bateau Bay residents, and like many in the area, have a passion for renovating.
“We love the house, but we’re ready for another project,” she said.
Driving up to the house at 22 Point St, there is immediate street appeal with the double-storey family home surrounded in lush, tropical gardens.
Step inside the formal tiled entry foyer to arrive at an expansive lower level living area that flows to an undercover entertainment deck and rear yard.
The main bedroom with ensuite and walk-in wardrobe is on ground floor, as well as a second bedroom, bathroom, laundry and large storage space.
Upstairs is where all the living happens and it is Mrs Wooley’s favourite part of the house.
It is not hard to understand why — the open plan living, dining and entertaining space opens to a beautiful outdoor entertainment deck that overlooks the pool and leafy green surrounding landscape.
Imagine summer afternoons lazing by the pool with natural stone surrounds, water features and Balinese style landscaped gardens.
There would be no need to go on a holiday — everything is just so peaceful and relaxing.
Other highlight features include a Quantum Quartz kitchen with gas cooktop, two pyrolytic ovens and a Bosch dishwasher, plantation shutters throughout, wooden accents and privacy screens.
The house is positioned in an area that has become known as Bateau Bay’s ‘golden triangle’ due to rising property prices.
Several suburb records have been broken within the space of a year, with the highest sale going to 2 Altona Ave, which sold for $1.835 million.
Mrs Wooley said that they were regulars at Cafe Mocha, which is just a few minutes walk down the street.
