Introducing 2 Peninsula Street, Hastings Point. Only once in a generation, does an extraordinary oceanfront residence of this calibre come to market. It might be a one-time chance to make it yours.
In the mid-1960s, this Hastings Point residence was a simple beach shack poised on a prime block with 38 metres of beach frontage only a heartbeat away from one of Australia's best surf beaches. Almost 45 years later, this highly sought-after oceanfront 1,644sqm (17,696sq.ft) land parcel found its match with a masterpiece designed home winning an RAIA Architectural Award for Excellence.
Designed by acclaimed architect, Scott Carpenter, the 382sqm (4,111sq.ft) home is buffered by native vegetation from the white-sand beach while holding a front-row seat to the Pacific Ocean panoramas to the east, Mount Warning to the west and Cudgen Creek to the south. In the architect's words, 'the connection to the beach, river and mountains transcends the visual. It's the salty and banksias aromas, sounds of the surf and rainbow lorikeets, the warmth of the sunlight, and coolness of the evening sea breezes that captivates the spirit of this remarkable home'.
Celebrating the entry to the home is a two-storey foyer and Blackbutt timber-tread staircase connecting the two levels of living. By situating the main living areas, kitchen and parents' retreat on the second level, the design layout maximises the dramatic ocean views, light and breezes. Three bedrooms - each with a covered and louvered portico for privacy, a family-style bathroom, second living area, laundry and anteroom are on the ground level. Walk out the door and it's literally seconds to the beach - walk, surf, bodyboard, or simply dip your toes in the water - the choice is yours.
The owner fittingly describes the Hastings Point beachfront lifestyle, 'Grab a surfboard for a surf taking the direct path to the beach, then back home - rinse off under the outdoor shower, the bar fridge is always stocked with cold drinks to sip, then into the plunge pool. If you ask me, living doesn't get much better'.
