Contemporary Haven in Heart of Point Lonsdale
Epitomising the ultimate in contemporary coastal architecture, this luxurious four-bedroom, three-bathroom residence is set in private, low-maintenance gardens with expansive deck and pool. Stunning ocean views can be observed from the upper-level of this statement home with the ocean only steps away. Built to exacting standards by the award-winning O’Dowd Builders and positioned in a tightly-held, blue-chip pocket of Point Lonsdale. Designed for optimum energy-efficiency and seamless indoor-outdoor coastal living, the intuitive floor plan incorporates multiple living spaces connected by timber-framed glass sliding doors. A wide central hallway with soaring ceiling void and expansive double-glazed windows leads from the light-filled entry, with louvred blinds regulating light, air flow and temperature. Polished terrazzo concrete runs throughout the ground floor, with custom-built timber staircase leading upstairs to natural oak boards. There are two built-in wood fireplaces with floating polished concrete hearths and hydronic heating, which can be controlled remotely via an app, although it’s use is minimal due to passive solar design principles and low-energy fittings. A sleek central kitchen overlooks the open-plan living and dining spaces and incorporates marble benchtops with panelled oak cabinetry, Siemens cooking appliances and butler’s pantry with additional storage and bench space.
An inviting library area with built-in bookshelves at the top of the stairs leads to a series of bedrooms with built in robes including the master bedroom with balcony, walk in robe and opulent ensuite, comprising of double vanity and rain-head shower.
