Making the most of its front and rear views, a striking Encounter Bay home features a “selfish” floorplan that’s all about the owner.

The unique home at 64 Wishart Cres, complete with its dark weatherboard facade and timber sash windows, is reminiscent of a beachhouse and certainly stands out within the residential estate, which features more traditional-style properties.

It is for sale through Raine & Horne Victor Harbor with a price guide of $420,000.

Built in 2019, it was created for a vendor who wanted to make the most of the natural surrounds, says selling agent Paul Dean.

“It is an absolute unique floorplan, and it’s a very personal floorplan,” Mr Dean says.

“It was designed for a vendor with a unique mindset.”

A long, narrow design, the home was created and custom built by renowned local craftsman builder Jim Dart and features a large master bedroom at the front to take in the panoramic sea and Bluff views.

“It’s a selfish build because you’ve got the master at the front and the living area is at the rear,” Mr Dean says.

“But the vendor wanted to enjoy the ocean views and it’s all about the master bedroom, which opens on to a large balcony.

“The home was built totally for her and her alone.”

But a sprawling, elevated 3267sqm allotment means the living area, which opens to a covered alfresco entertainment space, still enjoys picturesque vistas of the expansive backyard and offers a blank canvas for buyers, including the ability to add extensive shedding for those with boats or caravans.

“The outside is about 10 per cent started, but preparations have been made for a mass native planting and to create a mini woodland, which would become home to wildlife,” Mr Dean says.

“You can basically have a nature reserve as your backyard.”

The home also has up to two additional bedrooms, a large walk-in wardrobe, a luxe two-way bathroom, a guest toilet accessed via a spacious laundry, and a custom-made kitchen with Smeg appliances.

Mr Dean also suggests, subject to approvals, that the home lends itself to further additions.

“The building will take another storey on top, subject to council consents,” he says.

“I would whack a staircase in the current master bedroom and build a master upstairs and use downstairs as another living area.”

Mr Dean says the home would suit a couple, retirees or semi-retirees.

“Someone that aspires for that size allotment and is willing to do the work, and like the vendor, someone with the same aspirations.

“It’s a unique property, there’s nothing else like it around.”
