Gnarabup offers the very best of the Margaret River coastal lifestyle. Up for grabs is a cool contemporary living concept that captures the essence of free-flow coastal living. Conveniently located within a very short walk to some of the quietest pristine swimming beaches and world class surf breaks, not to mention the surf side café and resort dining. An easy three hour’s drive south of Perth with Margaret River wineries, vineyards, breweries and restaurants minutes from your front door. This is an envious beachside location and makes the perfect long term lifestyle investment.
Two stand-alone footprints provide a combination of four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and multiple living areas with a number of private outdoor zones. Initially built as a studio, more recently the owners added a modern, two storey, solar passive, three bedroom extension. The versatility and matrix of uses for this well presented property are obvious.
The generously sized studio is light and bright with high white-washed timber ceilings and exposed beams. Two sets of sliders open to the north facing end of the living area to create a spacious free-flow design. Stainless steel kitchen tops combine with timber features to ooze beachside character. The studio offers a single bedroom with raised built-in bunk beds so a double can be placed below to accommodate parents and kids if need be. The bathroom, wet area and separate WC have polished concrete floors and can all be discretely closed off from the main open plan living area if you are entertaining extended family or guests. Heating is a mood setting slow combustion wood fire and cooling is with the summer sea breeze delivered directly from the beach just 450m from your front door!
Drop the towel at the front door and shake the sand off your feet still dripping from a swim at the beach. The smell of salty spray wafting through the air constantly reminds you of just how close you are to the beach here.
Open the large sliders onto the north facing alfresco area of the studio and soak in the northern sunshine out of the prevailing winds. Landscaped with liquid limestone paving, featuring a dragon tree, well established avocado, mandarin, lemon, lime and orange trees. Discreetly privatised from the main road by indigenous coastal vegetation with separate parking to the two storey addition. This studio accommodation will be sought after by all who have been invited to stay.
The more recently added modern two storey addition is a totally separate footprint. Accommodating three more generous bedrooms, master bathroom and separate WC upstairs. Downstairs comprises a large open plan quasi double garage with laundry wet area and a huge floor space suitable for the ultimate games room, music dance studio, storage for boat, surfboards, ping pong championships… the list goes on.
Enter the front door of the two storey addition into a light filled foyer, take the polished concrete stairway up to a sundrenched landing which would be the perfect place to set up as a study or a quiet sitting area. The panoramic views from here and the master bedroom capture the sweeping coastal ridge views and are north facing solar passive, drenching you in morning light. Open the two sliding doors of the master bedroom, take your breakfast on the undercover deck and soak up the views. High ceilings throughout the bedrooms and bath, white-wash timbers and polished concrete floors with underfloor heating to each bedroom complement the smart design and northern orientation. The new addition has all the hallmarks of a modern beach home.
The two generous minor bedrooms are located either side of the main bathroom which features floor to ceiling tiling, soaker head shower and full-sized bath tub.
The elevation at the rear of the block privatises you from the neighbours. The terraced landscaping features liquid limestone paving to the private outdoor retreat off the master bedroom which is sheltered from the prevailing south wester and drenched in morning sunshine. The secluded backyard is retained with terraced limestone garden beds, has reticulated lawn, fig tree, small vegie patch with the scope to plant more natives or productive plants if you wish. Otherwise keep it as a low maintenance property.
The new addition has been engineered to take another kitchen and living area above the garage area, which would add to the top storey of the property and would take in northerly light and sweeping ridge views in case you needed any more floor space down the track or wanted to extend the useability of the existing two footprints.
Marmaduke Point Drive is a very quiet cul-de-sac located with beach access between the houses on the other side of the road just beyond the neighbouring property, so you won’t need the car to go for a surf, swim or enjoy the many pristine coastal walks, cafés or restaurants.
Load the fridge and release the kids, check them back in at dinner time, everything is accessible by foot from this convenient location. Invest in your lifestyle today and keep the generations happy for summers to come.
