How cute is this happy home perched on a sunny, North-facing 1012m2 block at the quiet end of Eastbourne Terrace? Even the carport makes you smile, with its nautical porthole-windows standing to attention on approach.
This freshly-painted 3-bedroom Hardiplank cottage is reminiscent of yesteryear, with its breezy balcony, French doors and crisp Eau-de-Nil palette complementing the calming, evergreen outlook. Dual driveways lead you through country farm-gates to either the carport, adjacent to the house; or for oversized vehicles—boat, jet-ski, motorhome or 4WD—a wider gate allows off-street parking in your secure backyard.
Once home, take the winding ramp or few stairs to the private covered deck. Let your eyes behold the established gardens that frame this magnificent property and the rolling lawn that extends to the rear, scattered with fruit trees and a giant privacy-hedge to the East.
Step inside and feel the spaciousness afforded by the wide central-hallway, connecting the three bedrooms and clever 2-way bathroom to the open-plan living. Timber-look floors and ceiling fans create a cool environment, while natural light floods the home through its abundant windows and glass doors.
The electric kitchen with white cabinetry, stone benchtops and Euromaid dishwasher, features a massive picture-window overlooking the backyard (allowing a watchful-eye over the children or pets at play, while enjoying your morning coffee). With so much extra space to utilise at both ends of the double-bank of cupboards (think wide galley), you’ll be amazed at what more you could fit in here.
A separate dining area abuts the kitchen and the built-in pantry acts as a buffer to the adjoining laundry, tucked discretely behind. The side-door entry from the carport to the laundry also provides a handy spot for dropping shopping or removing muddy shoes, while granting direct access to the bathroom from outdoors.
Two of the three bedrooms are queen-size and face North for all-day sunshine, both with built-ins and ceiling fans. The third bedroom is opposite the bathroom (shower, loo and vanity) and perfect for young children sharing, or the independent teenager or house-guest.
An enormous linen cupboard in the expansive central hallway could be opened-up to provide a study nook and then closed-up again, when not in use. If a dedicated office is more your style, there’s a wonderful sunroom off the living with its own toilet and hand-basin, plus direct-access to the deck—could double as a private treatment-room or art/music studio, or simply open the French doors to expand the already generous living zone.
Bonus features include:
• Solar panels
• Kelvinator split air-con
• Easy-care floor surfaces
• Ceiling fans
• Fully-fenced with vehicle access to backyard
• Sunroom with private entry from deck—home business opportunity
• Close to all amenities and walk to ferry

Already a perfect home, but with so many possibilities to inject your signature design, this property is sure to impress. Imagine a deck linking the backyard from the kitchen or sunroom, to experience the wonderful island climate all-year. Or even raise the roof and go up another level to double the floor-space.
With so much land on offer and walking distance to shops, school, waterfront and ferry, this is your best chance to secure a coastal cottage in a country setting, on magnificent Macleay Island.
