This brilliantly positioned Edithvale home is a rare treasure offering beachfront living with a touch of Hamptons luxury.
The 3 Esplanade Lane property just metres from the water commands uninterrupted vistas and lavish family living on two levels.
Both floors are linked by a glass-door lift and the floorplan is ideal for the indoor-outdoor coastal lifestyle.
“It is one of the best homes on offer in Edithvale, where beachfront blocks are rarely listed,” Buxton Mentone director Wesley Belt said.
“The main attractions are the location, views and quality of the home.”
The 630sq m property has a $4.5-$4.7 million price guide with expressions of interest closing May 2.
Mr Belt noted that beachfront blocks in the suburb could fetch $3.3 million for land value.
The suburb’s residential price record is $3.55 million, fetched by 2 Somme Pde in 2017.
A home on a much larger block at 185 Nepean Highway in nearby Aspendale sold for $6.01 million in 2017.
The Esplanade Lane home, which the vendors have owned for five years, has been extended and renovated as a stylish family entertainer.
The main outdoor attraction is the glass-fenced pool and spa that form a seamless link to the beach without sand dunes or beach boxes to interrupt the views.
Inside, it is well-appointed with a casual, Hamptons style with the ground floor hosting the main living and dining zone, a gourmet kitchen with a long island bench, and three bedrooms with an ensuite and bathroom.
The parents’ bedroom is zoned upstairs and boasts a dressing area and ensuite; it shares this level with a family living zone, dining area, kitchenette and patio.
The home has been finished with rich Marie Antoinette parquetry, Carrera marble benchtops and floor-to-ceiling Italian imported bathroom tiles.
Comfort is assured with reverse-cycle climate-control to every room and gas fireplaces for each zone, complemented with airy plantation shutters and double-glazing for many windows.
And the location is quiet, tucked in a secluded lane and yet close to the shops, train station and Lifesaving Club.
