Instant street-appeal attracts your attention as you arrive at 13 Benowa. This fully renovated high-set beauty graces the 1012m2 block, presiding over the generous front lawn and gravelled driveway to the secure lock-up garage, below the impressive house.
Fully-fenced with added side-gates to keep pets and children from straying to the road or nature reserve beyond, you can feel secure in this forever, family home. Eight strategically-placed cameras throughout the property provide further security and intercom, which can all be activated and monitored from your phone.
From the garage, step directly into your underground playground with a fully midge-screened outdoor room (current owner has spa and gym set-up with lounge and dining zone). This large rumpus area with direct-access to the backyard is perfect for teenagers, or a great place to hold extended family functions. Co-located in this all-season space, is the oversized laundry with a convenient toilet and door to clothesline; plus, there’s a multi-function room for your home-office, crafts, or meal preparation when entertaining guests.
When you’ve had enough downstairs, take the external staircase to the main house, or ride the Handicare inclinator to arrive in comfort on the East-facing deck, complete with marine carpet and a safety-gate for pets or toddlers. Enjoy your morning rituals here, watching the island come to life and listening to birdlife in the verdant garden.
Inside, feel the cool ‘Scandi’ timber-floating-floor underfoot, as you amble through the open-plan living space to the kitchen or sleeping zone. Take your lunch or evening drink on the front deck, overlooking the tranquil conservation area with walking tracks to Coast Road Park and Sandpiper Beach.
The chef’s kitchen boasts Bosch appliances (dishwasher, induction cooktop and oven) and offers the perfect triangle work-zone. A huge window allows natural light to reflect off the glossy-white cabinetry, making it bright and cheerful all day, with task-lighting installed beneath the overhead cupboards. Warm stone benchtops span the long rows of storage cupboards and drawers with generous space between the two sides, making it an ideal 2-cook kitchen.
All three bedrooms are large and have built-ins and ceiling fans. Two of them have convenient sliding-doors which open to a deck, for that added connection to nature. They’re all serviced by a central bathroom with a full-sized bath, shower, toilet and vanity. A double-door linen cupboard flanks the wall to the separate, second toilet on this level.
Climate-control is assured with luxe fans throughout (dimmer and speed settings) and Mitsubishi air-con, all powered by your solar panels with 8Kw battery backup—so no blackouts here! There’s excellent cross-flow ventilation and black-out blinds for privacy, if required. Shutters to the western-side are controlled from indoors, providing ambient temperatures to bedrooms.
With established gardens and a beautiful hedge in-training between the neighbour, this property offers a wonderful outdoor experience, but you could add a veggie-patch and chicken coop to complete the self-sufficient lifestyle, already started.
