Let the world and its worries slip further and further away as you ease down the gentle curves of North Arm Cove, and instantly feel at home as soon as you pull into the tree-lined driveway of 6 The Esplanade.

Landscaped gardens sit on either side of the shaded driveway at the front of the home, partially sheltering the gorgeous sandstone blocks from view. The double garage sits at the front of the home, though it looks more like a standalone cottage thanks to its high-quality stonework, pitched roof, and ornate windows. While you'll easily fit two cars inside and still have room for storage, there's also a modern bathroom on the ground floor and a charming living space, bedroom, and more storage in the loft above. From an expansive home office and private guest retreat to a self-contained Airbnb venture – this standalone dwelling can house far more than just the daily drivers.

Behind this versatile garage space lies the semi-wraparound deck of the expansive main residence, which creates a beautiful place to sit and enjoy listening to the abundant birdlife as the morning light filters through the treetops.

While the craftsmanship and attention to detail in these first two spaces are undoubtedly impressive, as soon as you enter through the timber and stained glass front door you'll experience the true genius of this custom build.

Polished timber floorboards and a natural palette sweep through the central hallway, gently guiding the eye through to the outstanding view that the entire floorplan has been designed around.

You'll pass three gorgeous bedrooms as you slowly move down the hall, each of which includes built-ins, roll-down blinds, and private entrances onto the front timber deck, as well as the elegant main bathroom.

Head up the timber stairs to the left of the hall, and you'll find a charming second loft area, which includes a private study nook as well as an extra-large fifth bedroom. This space could function as private guest quarters, a spacious home office, or even a teenager's retreat.

At the end of this main hall lies the final, master bedroom, which will allow you to wake up to the sights and sounds of the rippling water thanks to its wide, folding glass window. The large walk-in robe and elegant ensuite complete this space masterfully, creating a private haven for parents or hosts.

Despite how easy it may be to miss thanks to the stunning view ahead, the gourmet kitchen opposite the master is not to be overlooked. Gorgeous custom cabinetry lines the walls, capped by sleek stone benchtops and bathed in a wealth of light thanks to the high, triangular windows overhead.

The kitchen overlooks the lower floor's open plan dining/living area, with a visually complex design and seriously impressive views to the south creating a space that has been adored for years for both large-scale gatherings and quiet evenings by the fireside, watching the storms roll in over the water.

French doors open this space up to the undercover rear verandah, which provides unfettered views of the lapping water below. There's likely no better place to sit with a glass of wine in the evening, watching the colour of the water slowly change with the fading light.

An internal set of stairs provides access to a loft entertaining space, boasting another fireplace, a built-in bar, and a second balcony that offers the same views from a slightly higher vantage point, while allowing the full warmth of the sun to soak you through.

Beneath it all lies a lush, fully fenced rear lawn with access to a length of stairs that lead down to a gorgeous seating platform and pebble lined cove for easy access to the water, making daily living feel as though it's been plucked straight from your favourite holiday memory.

North Arm Cove offers residents a lifestyle that is truly hard to match with its stunning waterfronts, natural surrounds, and quiet streets, all while still benefitting from residential conveniences. Tea Gardens and Hawks Nest sit just 20 and 25 minutes away respectively, offering a good selection of amenities, facilities, and attractions, while Nelson Bay's even larger list of offerings can be accessed in under an hour.

Getting into Maitland and Newcastle CBDs takes just 45 and 55 minutes respectively, a 2.5-hour cruise down to Sydney and an under two hour drive down the M1 will have you to North Shore in a flash.

When the current residents were asked for some advice to offer any incoming North Arm Cove residents, they responded quite simply:

"Enjoy it. This is a place where you can escape from the busyness of the daily grind; a private sanctuary where you can enjoy the seclusion and privacy to its fullest, or get involved with the outstanding local community."
