Spanning three spectacular levels embracing the regional park, this six-bedroom, five-bathroom Long Bay residence was designed for family living at its finest. The extraordinary proportions and thoughtful 450m2 layout present ample space for multi-generational living and large-scale entertaining, plus showcase great sun and views.

Remuremu Street’s sought-after cul-de-sac is located at the quieter, more established side of Long Bay, yet is still within easy walking distance from the village’s shopping and dining precinct. The CBD is a 30-minute drive for commuters, who can also utilise the excellent public transport options available. Decile 10 school zoning for the neighbourhood includes Long Bay Primary, Northcross Intermediate and Long Bay College.

Built for the current owner and his family six years ago, the vision was to create an expansive family home that offered plenty of flexibility. Maximising the outlook was another key element, so the very wide frontage ensures that magnificent sunrises over the ocean are enjoyed every morning, along with views over the lush reserve and wetlands below. Extensive areas of Kwila decking also create many places to relax and enjoy coastal life and the views will never be built out. Little expense was spared in the finish of the home, with lavish fittings, features and appliances creating an opulent, elegant aesthetic and making the lifestyle a truly luxurious one.

The 934m2 property is tucked away from the road and protected by an electric security gate. Towering stone pillars at the front set the scene for the scale and drama to follow inside, with the double-height entry foyer opening into the second level. This is dedicated to the key living spaces, where the open-plan family room, dining and kitchen areas have American Oak floors and walls of sliding glass doors connecting to the decks outside. The well-equipped kitchen is functional and well-designed, featuring Blum cabinetry, Gaggenau appliances (including a built-in coffee machine) a thick stone island and gas cooking.

A unique design feature sees a mezzanine bridge cross over the top floor, with glass balustrades either side enhancing space and the sense of connection between levels. This means the formal lounge boasts a soaring double-height ceiling stud, plus has a gas fireplace for winter ambiance. There’s just one bedroom on this level, which has an ensuite and opens out to a private covered deck.

A wide staircase arrives up to the top floor, where two bedrooms at one end share a bathroom, while another ensuited bedroom is located off the lounge. The master suite is particularly luxurious and enjoys ocean views, plus has a deck, walk-in wardrobe and large fully-tiled bathroom, complete with two vanities, a bath and rainhead shower. Downstairs, the lowest level offers another bedroom, bathroom and living area, which flows out to covered decking. This space could be utilised as ideal extended family accommodation, or as a home theatre/ entertainment space, with the kitchenette doubling as a bar.

All the hard work has been done to create a park-like atmosphere outside. Professional landscape design has meant the grounds and gardens have evolved into a lush, well-established setting, with plenty of space to enjoy, exercise and entertain. The boardwalk along the front is a nod to the walkway that runs through the wetlands beyond and the area also enjoys a water feature, platform of flat lawn, vegetable gardens and
space for a spa and trampoline.

The extraordinary amounts of space and sheer luxury of this property will appeal to discerning buyers who seek the very best in large-scale living.
