It is a residence that has a commanding presence and stands out from those surrounding it in the sleepy lakeside suburb of Rathmines.
Built 16 years ago, the four-bedroom home at 23 Somersham Avenue was designed over multiple levels to take full advantage of its elevated position overlooking Lake Macquarie.
Floor-to-ceiling glass has been used in a downstairs family room, the main living upstairs and the luxurious master suite, which has a walk-in robe, ensuite and its own private balcony with water views.
Downstairs is a double, lock-up garage with internal access. On the lower level in addition to a family room is a bedroom or guest accommodation with its own bathroom.
Upstairs living flows to a stone kitchen and dining and a separate lounge extending to outdoor entertaining overlooking an in-ground swimming pool. There are two more bedrooms at the rear of the home, which both have access to the back deck.
The home is positioned on 1077 square metres of land and is being marketed by David Magin, of LJ Hooker Toronto. It is headed for auction on October 18.
“This home gets a stunning view and is very different to the homes you see around there, and different to just about anything else in that price range,” Mr Magin said.
“The address is Rathmines but it is on the Fishing Point peninsula. Bidding would start in the upper $600,000s and will possibly get to $700,000. For that price, you’re getting a quality home with lake views.”
It is open for inspection on Saturday at 12.30pm.
