Completed in 2014, this 2 storey, contemporary townhouse sits at the front of a boutique development right in Merewethers heart. Surrounded by some of Newcastles best assets, this sophisticated private retreat is designed for leisurely, cosmopolitan living at its best.

Quality of the build and its enviable location are major drawcards for this property. The exterior reveals little of the surprisingly large space contained within. External features such as the laser cut corten steel screens and constrained palette hints to the designer influence. Your expectations will not go underwhelmed.

Accessible via either the front facing door into the open plan lower living area, or slip casually around the side, via the courtyard, especially on your way back from the beach, when the outdoor shower proves priceless.

A raised L shaped timber deck wraps around the front and side of the building. Concertina Bi-fold doors along the North side of the open plan living room pull back to create the perfect blend of seamless indoor-outdoor space. In addition to maximising the area and the favourable northern orientation, cooling north-east sea breezes naturally ventilate the whole lower level. Enjoy entertaining, relaxing or sharing an alfresco meal; year round, this private space is a delight to occupy.

Internally, crisp white walls, high ceilings and practical large floor tiles in a neutral stone texture make for a timeless base on which to build your own style with ease.

The contemporary kitchen is as functional as it is appealing. White stone topped benches and glossy white cabinetry visually open-up the area. Complete with top of the range stainless steel Smeg appliances, such as the compact steam oven for health conscious meal preparation above the Pyrolytic wall oven. The gas cooktop is well ventilated by a 900 undermount exhaust plus there is a built-in smeg microwave and fully integrated dishwasher that emphasize clean lines and flush finishes.

A long benchtop doubling as a breakfast bar divides the kitchen and meals area while providing abundant preparation and conveniently central serving space. Two designer pendant lights in a polished copper finish emphasize a modern simplicity that underpins this home.

Off the meals area, a laundry extends beyond the screening wall concealing a toilet, servicing the lower level.

Considerately reducing noise, a carpeted staircase leads to the upper, carpeted level. Private bedrooms, a central bathroom and a versatile retreat, activity or guest room complete the level.

The grand master bedroom across one end is king sized, providing abundant space to unwind privately. A set of his and her triple door built-ins along one side are an extension of a similar sized set at the opposite end of the upper level for additional storage.

The adjacent ensuite displays an impressive use of space floor to ceiling tiled walls in a natural stone texture accommodate a dual basin floating vanity with his and her frameless mirrors. To one side is the wet area where both the bath and shower are behind the semi-frameless screen. A large square rain showerhead soaks the immediate area and an adjustable showerhead can extend over to the bath, where a water sheet spout enhances the free flowing lines of running water.

There are two more bedrooms, both generously sized with built-ins opposite the huge main bathroom, where a large, walk-in frameless shower and single floating vanity seem to use little space.

Matching designer tapware and fittings of bold geometric shapes in shiny chrome maintain a consistently sleek finish in the bathrooms, kitchen and laundry.

The property is completely secure and pet friendly, fenced along all boundaries plus a security gate across the double driveway restricts vehicle access.

The double garage has a remote opening panel lift door and internal access conveniently into the kitchen making arriving and departing easy when there is a load to move.
