This estuary-front cottage has been expertly reconstructed to meet modern building codes, complete with an elevated foundation for durability and assurance. Designed with a chic coastal flair, and fully architecturally restored by W2, this residence offers a distinctive and future-proofed two-bedroom, two-bathroom home, and a tranquil, secluded waterfront living experience.
Discreetly clad in classic weatherboard with a brand new oversize single garage providing both privacy from the street and ample storage, the home inside is simply sensational.
Basking in sunshine and revelling in an unparalleled sense of waterfront alfresco living, the central open-plan kitchen by Lume and dining area offer engineered timber flooring, discreet tongue-and-groove detailing on the ceiling and connect to the outdoor space through sliding doors opening up for outdoor entertaining. Here, exquisite landscaped space delights the senses and leads mesmerisingly from the hardwood deck to the flat lawn and elevated boardwalk and sunken sitting area - all with sensational views overlooking Moncks Bay and the not-too-distant South Shore spit.
Accommodation is two spacious and superbly appointed light-filled bedrooms that enjoy the luxury of their own fully-tiled ensuite bathrooms with glass-doored showers, luxury American brushed nickel and bronze fittings and a resort-style aesthetic. Never mind overseas escapes; with this cottage, you’ll holiday at home every day.
No expense has been spared in the reconstruction of this character home, and while the charm has been retained, this home is future proofed on an elevated site, with full insulation and Low E double glazing throughout alongside a wood-burner, heat pump, and under-tile heating ensuring climate comfort the year round.
Buyers looking for a seaside home or beachside retreat in the city should act swiftly to avoid disappointment.
