Inspired by its natural rustic surrounds, and uniquely designed to suit the rarity of its elevated position, this showstopping tri-level Rye home offers breathtaking panoramic bay views and tranquil native moonah outlooks.
Perched atop Rye's highest hill, the captivating features of this unique coastal haven begin to unfold at ground level, where hand-carved double French doors open to the light-filled entry with an ornate vintage French iron chandelier adorning the soaring ceilings. Glass walls of full-height windows and sliding doors to silvery decks are designed to emphasise the beauty and ease of relaxed indoor/outdoor living. Steps up and down define the spaces here which includes two bedrooms and a living area with a concealed kitchenette. The middle level is home to a unique mezzanine bathroom with built-in sunken bath and private garden outlook. Upstairs, enjoy 270 degree views that stretch from the Heads, across the sweep of the Bay to Arthur's Seat and around to the Back Beach sand dunes. The views are accessible from every corner of this top level that includes open plan living, dining, a well-equipped kitchen and the master bedroom suite, with built-in robes and a stylish ensuite. The wraparound deck is wide enough for alfresco dining, entertaining, or simply soaking in the mesmerising north-facing coastal views.
The home, (with heating and cooling S/S A/C) is on a 672 sqm (approx.) allotment, and includes off-street parking for up to 4 cars. Fully landscaped and fenced, and set behind a high retaining wall, there is a private outdoor shower and enough usable space for a potential swimming pool. In a peaceful, coastal neighbourhood, the home is walking distance to a popular local cafe, and equally close to Rye's front and back beaches.
