Our home has been described as "very pretty"; we are on a hill amongst the trees overlooking the ocean. The house is across three levels, the entrance and carport on the ground level; living, kitchen, pool and television room on the second level and bedrooms and a second living area on the third. The house has recently been renovated and has new bathrooms and a new kitchen. I would describe the style as a modern beach family home.
Summer is amazing in our house! On a hot day you can choose one of the many beaches within a 5 minute drive from the house or you can just take a dip in our pool. The beaches are picturesque and all have rock pools for swimming that are perfect for an early morning or late afternoon dip. We live on a peninsula so on the opposite side to the beaches is an amazing bay perfect for watching the sun go down and for activities like sailing, fishing, kayaking or stand up paddle.
On a balmy afternoon you can open the large servery window in the kitchen that overlooks the pool for an alfresco bbq dinner or sip a cool drink on the balcony overlooking the ocean as the sun goes down. Because we are perched high on a hill we catch the natural sea breeze at the end of a hot day.
Two of the bedrooms have ocean views and it is just magical to open the windows in the morning to read the paper in bed watching the sunlight glistening on the water. You will of course be woken by the many kookaburras that will start laughing at first light, its an amazing sound to hear so many of them! If you prefer to have a coffee or breakfast out you can choose from the many cafe in Avalon or Newport (and do some shopping at the same time).
As we have young children ourselves the house would be well suited to another young family - we have a trampoline and toys and the pool is completely fenced. The fourth bedroom is actually a nursery and has a cot/toddler bed in it. We do have a Queen air mattress which we use for guests in the living room if you needed to sleep another person.
