ON the very tip of the peninsula, this house is one in a million.
With absolute and never to be built out views over Lake Macquarie to the east, south and west, from the water it is the land marker for boaties.
A level walk from the street frontage, inside it steps down over four gradual floors to the water, where a jetty awaits.
Owners Bill and Maggie Bell bought the bush block 20 years ago and built the house to straddle the cliff face.
The design and the choice of materials at that time were aimed at taking full advantage of the views and keeping the building’s weight under control.
They achieved both, creating a beautiful house with the feel of a home.
Two decades on, it could easily be mistaken for a new coastal build, given the choice of modern lightweight materials.
Ideal for aspirationals looking for that combination of prestige and high-quality finishes, it would equally suit a family with children old enough for adventure.
The top level is dedicated completely to an outstanding master suite.
With water views on three sides, the large bedroom is complemented by a spacious ensuite with a spa bath and a walk-in robe.
Street level has a double garage, private foyer, a laundry, a powder room and one large bedroom.
A lounge room, dining room, kitchen, wet bar and sitting room comprise the next level down, again all with water views.
A wraparound deck on this level, high ceilings and beautiful appointments such as Caesarstone benchtops in the kitchen and wet bar make this a relaxing, elegant space.
One final level down there are two bedrooms, a large bathroom, a small office space and a rumpus room. A wraparound deck on this level mirrors the one above.
Handcut sandstone steps lead down the side of the block and provide access around the point and to the waterline.
