Customers since 2008 "We've moved around a bit and Contact just makes it all so easy" Harbourside sanctuary with a party spirit Decked out to entertain: A significant extension of the home's living areas. Luxury lodge: The casual ambience belies its many luxuries. Property potential: 1843 square metres of parklike land may encourage development. Delightful dip: The covered and heated exercise pool. Very rarely will you find a property offering such blissful privacy as the home at 7 Wade Street in coastal Blockhouse Bay. Then again, rarely will you find a home with such a penchant for entertaining that the term open house comes immediately to mind! It all comes together in this 1843 square metre property, featuring broad decks and quiet patios, trees, lawns, gar- dens and walkways -- hidden beyond a long treelined driveway. The setting must have inspired the original builders of this stunningly original home. They set about maximising its potential by creating a natural born entertainer in its own Eden . The living areas flow one into another in an effortless flow -- from broad decks with sea views to multiple living rooms and more decks. Atthehubofitallis an extremely large, well- equipped kitchen and a dining room just made for big dinner parties. The effect is like stay- ing in a luxury lodge. And it doesn t end there. Sliding doors from the main lounge connect via a short covered walkway to a heated indoor exercise pool and internal garden! The sleeping quarters occupy a separate wing, comprising four large bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master, apart from its full ensuite including spa bath, has generous wardrobe storage and access to the tranquil patio garden. Downstairs is a single tandem garage/work- shop, a former photo- graphic darkroom, and an office or gym -- so much space! The property stretches out past wide drives, parking spaces and carports, through lovely grounds merging into trees. With the home positioned well to one side, the possibility of subdivision will occur to many. The delights of Block- house Bay beach are a gentle stroll away; it has safe swimming, walk- ways, picnic areas, a boat ramp and play- ground. A pathway from Wade St links directly to Blockhouse Bay Rd shops and school. This rare find goes to auction this Saturday February 12, onsite at 2.30pm.
