9 Blue Bay Crescent, Macleay Island QLD 4184 View on map

Type: House

Calling all boaties and nautical enthusiasts… This waterfront, ‘super-yacht’ category home is sure to appeal and offers many features only found on quality vessels.

The moment you arrive a 9 Blue Bay Crescent, you know you’ve found something special. The calm location; views beyond the street, stretching out to North Stradbroke Island; the unusual structure and combination of Colorbond, Kwila and veneer finishes, all vie for your attention.

Designed by a boat-builder, nothing has been left to chance with every nook and cranny utilised and only top quality materials and finishes used.

This home certainly has some unique features:

  • Sandy beachfront among the mangroves
  • Meandering timber ‘jetty’ to waterside, with integrated seating for rest-stops
  • Totally soundproofed home
  • Ramp to front entry through ‘cold-room slider’ concealed in the timber wall
  • Tiled floors throughout
  • Open plan with decadent voids, bridge-deck, mezzanine & tons of glass
  • Wide entertaining decks on both levels
  • Galley-style kitchen (of course!)
  • Oversized bedrooms—all with insulated built-ins & large windows for light
  • Timber veneer ceilings
  • Integrated feature lighting in living
  • Views from master bedroom & bathroom through cut-out ‘windows’

Step aboard and be prepared to be impressed.

The entry simply takes your breath away with the open space and visible gang-plank floating, above. Sunlight bounces off glass and the warmth from the timber ceilings wraps you in a blanket of love.

The living can be used in so many ways, but you’ll want to sit facing the view, for the best vantage point. The adjoining kitchen has a huge island-bench with black-stone benchtop and breakfast bar, acting like a galley to the service area behind, with glossy-white cabinetry, open shelving and black appliances.

Both the living and kitchen flow to the lower-deck overlooking the water, complete with timber-slab bar at stool-height, perfect for breakfast of afternoon sundowners. The internal bannisters on the stairs and mezzanine-deck have stainless steel rigging which disappears, creating a spacious and openness akin to the seas.

Living on the coastal fringe of Southern Moreton Bay, here’s just some of the natural attractions you’ll encounter when exploring this 1002m2 block:

  • Colin, the resident Curlew
  • Abundant birdlife, fauna & marine-life (including turtles & dolphins)
  • Sunrises over Straddie
  • Privacy & shade from interspersed she-oaks & gums
  • Fishing on your doorstep
  • Direct water-access for kayaking, boating & jet-skiing (kayaks included)
  • Bushwalks & waterways of Perulpa Bay
  • Golf course around the corner (man-made, but lots of old trees)
  • Tranquil lull of lapping water
  • Front-yard with massive olive tree for Winter picnics
  • Fresh sea-air

This home is a true work of passion and craftsmanship.

A clever laundry is stationed under the stairs and is adjacent to the guestroom, at ground-level. There’s space for all the crew in the three bedrooms upstairs and plenty more for friends and family to bunk in downstairs, in the combined rumpus/study. This oversized room could be converted to a fifth bedroom (already has built-ins) by inserting a stud-wall between it and the rumpus, as both rooms have individual doors.

Modern bathrooms on each floor take care of the daily rituals, with the main bathroom upstairs, offering a spa-experience with a free-standing bath and sparkling views to the water. All 4-bedrooms are large and two are enormous. They all have built-ins and curtains or timber venetians. There’s extra storage with mirrored robes at the top of the stairs and below, reflecting the views and making sure nothing is ever out of place.

Upstairs, a meditation loft leads to another private deck, from ‘the bridge’. But why not use this open area for a study or telescope viewing zone? It overlooks the living below and offers separation from the goings-on in the galley, offering quiet-time and a peaceful escape from life.

Outside, there’s two sets of double entry gates: one leading to a double-garage with remote roller-doors; and the other to a fully-fenced and secure front-lawn area, screened from the main house. There’s enough parking for boats, caravan and all the toys you acquire in life and the gravel prevents bogging and muddy feet in wet-weather.

Some cost-saving extras and external bonuses:

  • Water tank
  • Low voltage LED lighting
  • Gas hot water
  • Fully-insulated for optimum passive cooling & heating
  • Established Fruit trees
  • 5-degree pitch on roofline (no gutters required)
  • Double lock-up garage with windows & rear-door (convert to granny-flat?)
  • Gravel driveways & parking bays
  • Fibre-cement floors on decks (low maintenance)
  • Steel construction
  • Marine-grade finish on stairs to upper-deck, connecting berths & saloon

This amazing build would make a great family home with many entertaining options and an overflow of accommodation for extra guests. The position on Perulpa is excellent for water-sports and you have the calming views available all year, showcasing the seasons.

You can expect years of fulfilled dreams when you purchase this masterpiece. Being inside this structure makes you think of living on a boat, with all the trimmings and skill of a sailor at the helm.

You’ll never tire of the joy it brings or the possibilities at hand—create a passive income by converting the garage to a granny-flat; or let the in-laws trade rooms with independent teenagers as they make cool digs of the space. Put in veggie gardens to complement the fruit trees and lone olive; extend the outdoor entertaining zone by the waterside to include a BBQ and fire-pit, with an outdoor shower and cabana.

Endless options. But be quick, before this ship sails.

If you’re after a well-built waterfront home, call Chris McGregor on 0420 555 997 and make the co-ordinates of 9 Blue Bay Crescent, your new island address.
