'Stella Maris' Inspect via Registration Saturday 18th Jan 11.00am - 12.00pm
Auction Location: Watt Street Commercial Centre register 5:30PM.
Rarely does a home so easily capture the imagination as this stunning family retreat, where Art Deco character and contemporary finesse converge against a mesmeric coastal and city backdrop.
Built c.1926 as a boarding house for merchant seamen, ‘Stella Maris’ later became four flats until an architectural renovation and extension by John Webber was completed in 2016. The owners’ brief was to create a spacious multi-level home for their large family that could also be reconfigured into two separate dwellings later with ease. The design also had to champion the Spanish Art Deco features of the existing building while also incorporating contemporary elements in line with today’s lifestyle expectations.
The home is one of graceful lines, exquisite proportions and superior quality fixtures and fittings. Multiple arched windows, gently curved walls, high ceilings, mixed wood parquetry flooring and elegant light fittings add tremendous character and warmth, while ducted air-conditioning, bathroom under-floor heating, an internal lift, wine cellar, gas fire elevate the level of luxury throughout.
Three storeys allow the residence to be compartmented into 5-bedroom and 2-bathroom accommodation for the family on the ground floor, along with a sixth bedroom or office with its own separate entrance. The lowest floor is reserved for the laundry, storage, third bathroom, internal access from the double garage and a rumpus area.
The voluminous open plan living area stretches out on the upper floor connecting with an alfresco terrace. Abundant glass allows you to interact with the ocean and beach views, while as night falls, the surrounding city comes alive with sparkling lights.
The bespoke chef’s kitchen is the home’s heart with Neff and Gaggenau cooking appliances, integrated Liebherr fridge/freezer and a stone island with integrated timber dining bench.
Also, on the upper level, an executive home office with its own powder room and the magnificent master bedroom with a dressing room, luxe ensuite bathroom and endless ocean views.
Keeping excellent company amongst a select group of trophy homes, from this premium setting, you can stroll to The Junction’s vibrant eateries, trendy boutiques and highly sought-after schools as well as Bar Beach bowling club and tennis club. And, with the beach on the doorstep, an early morning swim or surf or stroll along the Anzac Memorial walk comes as part of the package.
