Owners Pat and Penelope McCarthy said the large house had been the perfect property for them and their five children.
“When we first moved in, about 14 years ago, we entirely rebuilt it,” Mr McCarthy said.
“What we were aiming for was a really relaxed, open feel with a lot of entertaining areas and generous and ample living spaces. We didn’t compromise on anything.” “It’s definitely a lifestyle property with a beautiful coastal feel.”
The expat Americans aimed for a Long Island and Hamptons vibe when building the house and also started the US tradition of Halloween on the street.
“We were taken by the neighbourhood feel of the street, it’s a very private and homely place to live,” he said.
Mr McCarthy said his favourite room was the living room where the family gathered together most nights.
“It’s hard to pick from there between the wine cellar or my workshop down in the boat shed,” he said.
“The home has a room for everyone to do what they enjoy doing.”
The expressions of interest campaign for the six-bedroom house at 64-66 Charolais Cres, Benowa Waters, closes on March 18.
