House of the Week | 5 The Shores Way, Belmont

Positioned in one of Belmont’s most exclusive locations, this dual level residence is on the market for the first time in 17 years and interest is expected to be around the $2 million mark.

It enjoys an elevated position and floor-to-ceiling glass has been extensively used to take full advantage of the expansive water views on offer - from Lake Macquarie across to the ocean.

Space and family function were also key design elements when the residence was built on its 803 square metre block within walking distance of Green Point Reserve.

On the main level light-filled open plan living and a modern kitchen take advantage of the views. There is also a formal lounge, study, separate dining room and two bedrooms with their own bathrooms.

Downstairs is a large rumpus or billiard room plus a further three bedrooms and bathroom.

Both floors of the house have well-appointed decks and there is a triple lock-up garage on the main level.

The home is being marketed by David Marshall of Marshall Property Belmont.

“It’s in a fabulous, exclusive location,” Mr Marshall said. “It’s a big home and is really good quality all of the way through, and it’s been well maintained.

“One of the advantages is you can live all on the top floor, with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, living, dining and a study, then downstairs is another three bedrooms, bathroom and a billiards room.

“If you have family, or teenagers, they can be downstairs doing their own thing.”

It has a guide of $1.9 million to $2.1 million and is open Saturday at 1pm.
