At One With The Water
16A CRAIG ROAD MILFORD
Celebrating an incredible position and true connection with the water, 16a Craig Road is one of the luxurious residential sanctuaries that embrace the Milford Marina. As one of the only properties of the enclave that possesses its own boat ramp, the sea affords endless options for activity, as well as providing a truly inspirational backdrop.
Location-wise, the owners have loved the sense of a 'walking community.' Walk along the golden sands of Milford beach just steps from the front gate, wander to the park with the kids, and stroll out for coffee or dinner in the evening to local cafes and restaurants. The relaxed atmosphere within the neighbourhood and at home lends an enviable, holiday-like feeling all year round.
Conceived by architect Peter Sargisson - the master of space and light - the residence showcases a blend innovative design and liveable, functional glamour. The theme throughout is consummate quality and unrelenting attention to detail, and those with busy, active lives will welcome the tranquil haven at home. The use of double-glazed skylights and a double height-ceiling in the foyer sets the precedence for the illumination and warmth to follow throughout. Key living and dining areas comprise the ground level, with cavity sliders available to segregate formal and informal zones and design integrity to ensure the sun is maximised as it travels all the way around the property till it sets in the evening. Walls of bifold windows and doors bring the outside in and allow the views of the marina to become an extension of the house itself. The choice of alfresco living options - an intimate, protected courtyard or the front patio and lawn overlooking the water - provide entertaining options depending on the weather. The granite kitchen is generous and functional, with contemporary appliances and a butler's pantry.
The open-plan layout across the three levels ensures a good flow and an almost constant stream of interaction - ideal for families with young children. Upstairs the gallery-style wallspaces are offset by the rich wooden floors, where three bedrooms and an all office enjoy a wonderful outlook, along with the master suite that sits alone on the top floor. Temperature control for all-year-round comfort is paramount, with both gas and open fireplaces, under-floor heating and heatpumps throughout.
The thoughtful positioning of the property ensures supreme privacy from neighbouring homes, as well providing enjoyment of the waterfront without the exposure of the beach. Those that possess an affinity with the sea will relish the lifestyle and marine activity - watch the fish jumping and the boats cruising in and out of the marina from the living room, or launch a kayak from the boat ramp and be paddling out around the coast in 10 minutes.
Inspired use of space in an inspirational setting, this property is one of a kind.
