This piece of master craftsmanship is situated on the beautiful waters of the region’s blue-chip suburb of Dolphin Heads. The double block of more than a quarter of an acre of absolute waterfront land is a rarity in itself. Add to this the high-quality finish and clever combination of architectural elements and you have a truly magnificent residence; an oasis of calm has truly been created.
 
Set only meters from the beach, looking North-East towards the Coral Sea, the location of this landmark home is inspirational in its design.  Natural light flows effortlessly into the huge void created with the cathedral ceilings of the open plan living and dining space, thanks to the wide glass sliding doors, which help blend the indoor to the outdoor living and allow fresh sea breezes to float gently through the home. A chandelier emphasises the elegance of not only this space but of the entire residence.
 
The organic warmth of natural timbers contrasts perfectly with the crisp interior. 
Set over a multitude of levels, together with the clever use of glass and carefully positioned lighting, enhance the sense of space throughout the home. Whilst outside a blend of Himalayan and Indian Sandstone features complements not only the home’s ambiance but also its peaceful beachside surroundings.
 
The amazing kitchen is ideally positioned at the centre of the home and features quality appliances and an island bench. A great place to prepare food and drinks in readiness to entertain on one of the many outdoor living areas. One is spoilt for choice when it comes to taking the party outside. Entertain poolside on the rear timber deck and look out over the crystal blue waters of the ocean or have a more private gathering by the firepit on one of those rare cool evenings. There’s an outdoor alfresco area for fine dining and then there’s the hidden outdoor retreat around the back by the water where mum and dad can slip away and enjoy a drink or two whilst taking in a glorious sunset.

Spread out over levels 1, 2 and 3 is where you will find the three large secondary bedrooms, all come complete with their very bathroom nearby or ensuite. All bathrooms have a touch of class with marble benchtops and other fine finishings which complement the rest of the home. The bedroom on the third level is as good as, if not better, than most main bedrooms with its immense space, large wrap around wardrobe, own private balcony and a study.

The master suite is located on its own level, right at the top and offers the largest of walk-in robes with more than enough storage, it even has a stone top drawer island. Spacious ensuite and balcony with ocean views complete this parents retreat.

Completing the lower levels of the home are a mud room to hide all of your outdoor wear and shoes, a sitting room to read a book peacefully, a large laundry and a powder room which can be accessed from one of the many outdoor areas. 

The double bay garage includes space for car storage but also contains a workshop and a large office. Working from home would be an absolute pleasure in this well-equipped office with its custom-built cabinetry and room for more than one if need be.

Some of the many features of this masterpiece property include:

- There is more than 400 square meters under roof of this 4 Bedroom, 4 Bathroom architecturally designed home
- Luxurious 2pac kitchen comes complete with full length stone waterfall island stone bench tops and chef quality Miele appliances plus a built-in wine/beer fridge
- Multiple living areas both internal and external that seamlessly flow from inside to out
- The Master bedroom also features a huge walk-in wardrobe room with quality timber cabinetry, its own private balcony and an ensuite with marble tops with his and hers vanities
- The main bathroom caters for the family with a spacious corner bath for the young ones
- The ground floor bedroom and ensuite have been purpose built for persons with mobility issues/disabilities in mind, the room also has double-width access to the adjoining garden courtyard area
- Custom built display timber cabinetry in the living area which includes wine racks
- Integrated Bose system throughout the home
- Generously proportioned office plus a study
- Mud room located under one of the internal staircases
- Split system air-conditioning throughout
- C-Bus home control and management system
- Magnesium Infinity edge pool with waterfalls and swim jets in the lap pool
- Outdoor shower with hot and cold water
- Dual gas bbq area
- Double lock up garage plus a double carport with higher clearance for a caravan or boat
- High perimeter wall for privacy around the home
- Tranquil garden courtyard and BBQ area
- Central vacuum system - ‘Vacumaid Silent Partner’
- Security alarm system
- 1439 sqm allotment

Originally two parcels of prime land, 60 Beach Road is now one large waterfront block with ample room to build the largest of sheds on, with ample off-street parking and is situated at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac. Just another thing that makes this property both unique and highly sought after.

The lifestyle which you have been yearning for is on offer here.  Whether it be Yoga on the water’s edge, an early morning paddle board or canoe, daily exercise in the lap pool, fishing with the kids or feeling the golden sand through your toes as you take those late afternoon walks. Feel like you’re on an island holiday every day of the year.
 
No stone has been left unturned; the proud owner has restored this magnificent Dolphin Heads property beyond its original condition. There is nothing left to do but take a jacuzzi in the private pool, dine or lounge in one of the many entertainment zones or take in the point-blank views of the pristine beach and wide blue ocean. 60 Beach Road, a true masterpiece, which has an understated elegance and calm, although comes complete with every convenience one could ask for and the lifestyle everyone desires.
