Dream family home hits bayside market
This stunning coastal home has hit the market in Manly.
Owners Darren and Kerri-Anne Bridge purchased the property 135 Gordon Pde more than a decade ago and have transformed it into a luxury three-storey home designed to make the most of the sea views.
The couple enlisted the help of IMC Constructions and PDT Architects to create their dream home.
“The house was completed in 2014. We only kept two walls from the original house. It was an old Queenslander and now it is a contemporary beach home with five bedrooms, a lift and (multiple) decks,” Mrs Bridge said.
“We did a lot of the designing ourselves and we had the architect make sure it all flowed.
“The home is quite unique in how it sits on the block as we have the wraparound view and we don’t have neighbours at the back.”
Within the last year the couple also added an inground pool, with sea views, and a pizza oven.
Set over three levels, the home has floor to ceilings windows and louvres, as well as a series of decks that take in the water views.
Entry to the home in on the middle level, where there is also a family room, media room, two bedrooms, study, laundry, deck, balcony and veranda.
Upstairs, the open-plan living, dining and kitchen area flows out to another deck while the master bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite. There are two more bedrooms on this level, along with a bathroom and separate toilet.
Downstairs there is a double garage, gym, bathroom, wine cellar and storage space. This level leads out to the lower deck and inground swimming pool.
“My favourite parts of the home are probably the decks and the kitchen, dining and living area where you can cook and look out to the views across the harbour,” Mrs Bridge said.
The property is being marketed by Murray Mercer or LJ Hooker Wynnum and is for sale by tender.
