With a considered and confident nod to Caribbean style, this beautifully crafted home was originally conceived by an International Sailor who loved this part of the world. Fortunately, his brother was an Architect who could bring his dream of idyllic coastal living to life. This unique and masterful home by the sea has taken advantage of its outstanding position with some of the best views available on the coast. Here time and tide pass by in one beautiful continuum with views of all the Islands and the ever-changing reef break that protects your beach at the bottom of the street.
Recently renovated and extended to provide the pinnacle of luxury and comfort, upgrades have been completed with great reverence to the original fabric of this stunning stone and timber home. On stormy days the home closes inwards to open fireplaces and cosy spaces as you shut out the weather but not the view. On sunny days the whole home opens to the outdoors where light and breeze permeate the entire home making this such a stunning place in the world.
The landholding alone sets this home apart with 1029 square metres on the corner with a dominant northern frontage, allowing you to turn your back to the breeze and enjoy the sun and the protected views to the north and west from all the main rooms.
You enter the home through a private garden courtyard with pond and raised seating perfect for larger entertaining with the ocean as your backdrop. On the upper level the abundance of timber gives a very cool visual backdrop to the bright ocean. It’s a completely successful architectural response to the coastal environment and this home’s unique location.
Upstairs is level with Avonmore Terrace, where you have magnificent elevated living high above the Indian Ocean vista. Living, dining, a capacious master suite and the rotunda’ for evening drinks or family get togethers allows single level living should you prefer it.
Downstairs there are 3-4 more bedrooms and entertaining opening to the pool deck and outdoor kitchen. Side access to Princes Street ensure you’re hitting the beach in moments and your surfboards, skis and paddles are thoughtfully stored nearby.
This really is the complete beach home in a position like no other. We can only commend your inspection of this true once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase The Anchorage’, so you can experience that same feeling as the Ship’s Captain when they return to the sanctuary of their home.
This is a very special residence that we look forward to showing you, and it will be a discerning buyer who calls this Home.
