MEREWETHER couple Matt and Robyn Hayter are selling their stunning architect-designed home at 35 Hall Street due to a move to Melbourne.
Set on a 696-square-metre block close to the beach, the Chris Tucker-designed home was constructed on the block the Hayters bought in 2008.
The architect's brief was for an eco-friendly Australian coastal family home.
The property features a unique open-plan design with five-metre raked ceilings, polished concrete flooring, floor-to-ceiling louvred windows and complete indoor-outdoor integration from the living areas to pool and alfresco zones.
Designed with families and entertaining firmly in mind, the home also offers a separate children's zone, parents' wing with home office and a family-sized backyard.
The property is listed for sale for offers over $1.79 million through Dalton Partners agent Andrew McGavin.
It will be open for inspection today, 10am to 10.45am.
MOTHER of five Toni Fricker is selling her six-bedroom family home in The Junction.
A Californian bungalow that has been completely renovated and extended, it is the ideal house for primary school-aged children, Ms Fricker said.
"All of the bedrooms are upstairs, which is good because it means we could all be together, so it is the perfect house for young children. They've had a lot of fun in that house," she said.
Listed for offers over $1.4 million through Robinson Property agent Mike Flook, the house has separate lounge, dining and family areas.
All six bedrooms have built-in wardrobes and the main has an en suite.
There are two additional modern family bathrooms, a modern kitchen with stone benchtops and gas cooking and a separate study.
There is also ducted and split cycle airconditioning, leadlight windows, high ceilings, an open fireplace, shutters, automatic gas fireplace, polished floors plus a walk-in linen space.
A rear outside entertaining deck is complemented by a tranquil water feature overlooking the large level grassed yard and landscaped gardens.
A second separate council-approved dwelling is located at the rear of the property that consists of a fully self-contained bedsitter with a study area, kitchenette and bathroom, and a double lock-up garage and carport underneath.
Unusual design for sale
THE long-term home of Dieter and Ruth Pulik at Wakefield is on the market after decades in the family.
Known locally as the Hansel and Gretel home, and not surprising given its unusual design and the owners' German background, the architect-designed home sits in the middle of tree-lined lawns on a 3.2-hectare block of land.
Offering both seclusion and relaxed living, features include a formal lounge and dining room, casual dining and a kitchen area with a walk-in pantry.
The main bedroom downstairs boasts an en suite and a walk-in wardrobe and is in close proximity to the office or a fifth bedroom.
The second level has three sizeable bedrooms with built-in robes, and an upstairs bathroom and laundry chute.
A beautiful pergola area is covered with wisteria.
The house is at 460 Miller Road, Wakefield, and is listed through Stephen Dorman of Ray White Newcastle Lake Macquarie for offers over $789,000.
It will be open today at 12.30pm.
A FEDERATION home at 97 Dumaresq Street, Hamilton, will go under the hammer next Saturday, November 29, at 10.30am.
Renovated by project management specialists Paddington Properties, which is headed by John Thomson, the four-bedroom, two-bathroom home has been enhanced by new bathrooms, a remodelled kitchen, polished floors and new carpet.
All bedrooms have built-ins and there is a huge formal lounge room and open-plan kitchen and family room that leads to a return verandah and a landscaped yard with a cottage-style workshop.
Solar panels and spear point water supply provide environmentally friendly living and there is drive access for a small car on the 540-square-metre block, as well as plans for additional garaging.
It is listed through Dalton Partners agent Anthony Merlo, who said serious bidding would commence from $980,000.
It is open today for inspection between 10am and 10.45am.
