61 Cabarita Road, Avalon

 

This family home in Avalon is defined by two things: views and stairs. It’s built on a steep block and takes advantage of the Careel Bay views by incorporating levels. Each level has a water outlook, making for a pretty ideal northern beaches vibe.

 

 

The design aesthetic is mostly contemporary, and multiple timber decks ensure that the home takes full advantage of the outlook. One of the best parts of the home, though, is its quirky details, which can be perceived both in the décor and in the architecture. An example of this is the top floor of the house, a hidey-hole study at the home’s tip that, again, presents a glorious view.

 

 

The home is on the market, and I can see how it’s a pretty appealing package for home-buyers; views, architectural interest and a price around $1.325 million that seems spot on. The stairs up to the home also make a pretty decent exercise option, if you’re the kind of person who’s into running stairs (I am, and always seem to be identifying new stair-run locations…).

 

I love this wall sticker. Plus, I am significantly taller than the tallest height on it, which, even though it's intended for children, I take as an achievement.

 

Quirkiness rarely goes astray in my books. This children's bedroom also had an interesting second level/deck.

 

 

Light and space is well-incorporated into the master bedroom, which has this sitting area.
