Motor enthusiasts can sit back and admire their “showpiece car from the lounge” at this new Sorrento pad.
The modern marvel at 190 Ocean Beach Rd has an integrated, carpeted turntable garage within its family room.
Whitefox sales agent James Hallahan said the house was jaw-dropping at first sight, but it was the finer details that were drawing the interest.
“’Wow’ is the first response we get,” he said.
“The carpeted set-up allows car lovers to view their showpiece car or collectable from the couch.”
The turntable means buyers won’t have to reverse down the long driveway, which runs beside the house on the 950sq m block.
The five-bedroom, four-bathroom house has a $4.5 million price tag and is just metres from Sorrento’s main drag a short stroll to the beach.
Mr Hallahan said the owner-builder had a vision to create “something different in the area”.
“He wanted to steer away from the beach bungalow style that we see time and time again around the peninsula,” he said.
“They have gone to town on every detail and left no stone unturned.
“There is a seamless flow from the entry to the living areas; the kitchen, dining and outdoor entertainment area merge as one big space.”
The brand new home is decked out with bluestone tiles, marble benchtops, solid timber floors,
soaring high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows.
Wide stacker doors open to the ultimate outdoor entertainment area, complete with a full service bar, pool and spa.
A contemporary in-built gas fireplace, hydronic heating, gas ducted heating and refrigerated cooling are just a few added extras.
Mr Hallahan said the property was a “one of a kind” in the area.
“There are a few spec builds across Sorrento but this property is an absolute stand out,” he said.
“There is a beautiful street presence, but at the same time (it) offers ultimate privacy.”
