Come inside and explore the renovated 33 Knights Tce, Margate.
IT’S not a waterfront property but 33 Knights Tce, Margate is bound to the bay.
The turquoise waters are captured in the colour of the front door, and the sea breezes are busy cooling every room.
A full renovation has transformed the inside of this 1960s cottage.
It is also more than meets the eye, and what at first looks like a quaint 1960s cottage, is actually a cleverly renovated four bedroom house with 119sq m of internal floor space.
The long lines of the kitchen and dining area with views to the front deck.
Dustin and Tammie Dever bought the house five years ago and have renovated it to preserve the charm and add a modern touch.
It’s a very deceptive house, it keeps going and going,” Mr Dever said.
Plenty of room to relax and enjoy Moreton Bay breezes.
“We’ve put our heart and soul into restoring it.
“We loved that the house was on the top of the hill and has a beautiful breeze because of the way it faces, and we loved its charm.”
And with the doors open, those bay breezes sweep right through the house.
The new kitchen and bathrooms have revamped the inside while modern decking and a built-in barbecue area have extended the living area to outdoors.
Looking toward the rear of the house.
The original stained glass windows have been preserved.
Light and airy bedrooms with clever storage space.
“It’s an entertainer’s delight,’’ he said.
“Private and quiet and sheltered from the heat in summer because of the trees that surround it.”

“We love it here,” he said.
“We didn’t necessarily want to be next to the water, but up on the hill is good, we have bikes and ride down to Scarborough and the lagoon at Redcliffe.

“It’s accessible for anyone with an active lifestyle and we didn’t need to spend twice as much to be close to the water.”
The lowset layout on a 405sq m block has been ideal for the Devers’ young family who have enjoyed the outdoors without feeling separated from the house.
Ray White Woody Point is opening the home for inspection this Saturday, November 3, from 10.15-10.45am.
