Three levels of luxury by the water’s edge
WATERFRONT luxury. That is the name of the game when considering life in this sleek, contemporary, three-storey riverside home.
This incredible property is something truly special. The combination of position, size, design, construction and privacy make this exquisite home sing.
The owner is a builder by trade with a wealth of experience, having built and restored properties in Sydney for decades.
A holiday to Tasmania was the first stepping stone to his move south from the big smoke — and he has never looked back.
When designing this waterside home a few years ago, he found a way to build it so that you can stand on the deck and look down at the high-tide line.
“I’ve been told that the boat shed alone could be worth $1 million because you can’t build them any more,” he said.
There are many things the owner likes about this home, but one of the first that springs to mind after showing visitors the expansive views is news of regular visitors in the river.
“We are lucky enough to see dolphins out the front window in the river every other day,” he said.
Other features of note are the home’s curves.
“Builders say ‘curves cost’, but you can see that I love them,” the homeowner said.
There are three homes at No.806 Sandy Bay Road, each built or fully renovated by the owner of Number Three.
Charlotte Peterswald for Property director Kim Morgan succinctly described Number Three in just one word: Spectacular.
“It is one of our finest homes on the market,” Kim said.
Set back from the bustle of the main road, privacy and seclusion is paramount.
Spread out over three levels, this
three-bedroom home is elegant and sophisticated.
The upper-level living zone is highlighted by floor-to-ceiling windows that bathe in natural light while drinking in the vast views of the Derwent.
Glass extends through to the living, dining room and kitchen to make the most of the magical vista. An in-built fire adds warmth and ambience.
Between the dining and living rooms there is a balcony with a radiant heater, ensuring that a cuppa or a barbecue can be enjoyed in this outdoor space at any time of the day or night.
Fine dining is a given under designer lighting, and time spent in the stylish kitchen will never be a chore while feasting on the stunning outlook.
There is a sizeable pantry and quality appliances, including a stainless-steel fridge, dishwasher, duel oven and electric stovetop and rangehood at the chef’s fingertips.
For film buffs, the home theatre will be the spot to kick back and relax. This room is also home to a bar.
Take the spiral staircase or the internal lift to the lower ground floor to find a gallery adjoined by two generous bedrooms, each boasting built-in wardrobes and water views. Both feature ensuites complete with luxurious showers and vanities. One also has a bath.
On the third level of the home there is another bedroom, this one featuring a walk-in dressing room and ensuite.
But wait, there’s more. Next door there is a large jacuzzi in the “spa room”, perfectly positioned to soak in and soak up the stunning views.
There is also room here for some home gym equipment, and the home features abundant storage options.
For someone that owns a ton of tools, there is a workshop and storeroom inside the home, plus another workshop located on the roadside of the property just beyond the garage — and even this workshop has river views.
The large garage has an automatic roller door. There is also plenty of off-street parking for additional vehicles.
Finally, completing this picture perfect property, on top of the boat house there is a rooftop terrace.
It is an impressive property that ticks every box and then a few more for good measure.
No.3/806 Sandy Bay Road in Sandy Bay is listed with Charlotte Peterswald and will be sold by expressions of interest over $2.5 million.
