Builder and designer team, Chris and Jane Howell, built their first Bayside home in Sandringham around 15 years ago. Living at 56 Ardoyne St, Black Rock, for the past two years, they’ve decided to sell. Working full time in the Black Rock building and design industry, this state-of-the-art home showcases their clear eye for detail and superior craftsmanship.

With four bedrooms and three bathrooms, and timber, polished concrete and glass throughout, this spacious home exudes a timeless, yet modern, Palm Springs feel. Large bi-fold doors open to the expansive rear garden with ornamental pear trees. It’s perfect for entertaining family and friends with in-ground trampoline, modern cubby, pool and Jacuzzi.

“From waking up in this naturally light filled home with the feel of oak under your feet as you make your way to the kitchen, there is not a window you pass by which is not framing a garden view.”

Relax in the master suite that comes with built in robes and an ensuite that opens to a private Japanese maple garden. Details include Miele appliances, American oak vanities, stone bench tops, extensive storage, Sonos integrated sound system, solar power, three metre ceilings and balconies.

Set in Black Rock, close to schools and five minutes walk to the village, Ardoyne Street is set for Auction through Hocking Stuart on the 23rd of March.
