4 Waterview Cres, Sorrento is on the market through an expressions of interest campaign.
IT was the location which initially drew Jennifer and Noel Kennedy to their Sorrento property.
The couple bought a block of land at 4 Waterview Cres almost ten years ago and then set about building their dream home.
From the street.
Cook up a storm in this kitchen.
“We actually bought the land and amalgamated the block with another one behind it and we built the house,’’ Mrs Kennedy said.
“So what we were drawn to was the area, we really we love the central location of it, the standard of housing, it is just a genuinely nice suburb to live in, one of the best.’’
Known, as Casa Bianca, the finished property exceeded their expectations.
“When you go from drawing up the plans, and we spent a lot of time getting the plans right to make sure it was as we wanted it to be, but when you see it actually rise out of the ground it was just fabulous,’’ Mrs Kennedy said.
Style at every turn.
One of the bedrooms.
The area the couple spend the most time enjoying is actually outside of the house. There are two back patios where they enjoy sitting and overlooking the pool house and pool.
“The patios are facing north so the aspect is gorgeous, it is beautiful in the summer and it is beautiful in the winter.’’
Mrs Kennedy said they were selling because with four grandchildren living overseas, they were doing more travelling.
“We do travel to see them and we worry about the house the whole time we are away, we worry about the gardens mainly. So we have decided that we are going to go back to Main Beach which is where we came from originally and get something that we can just lock up and leave and not have to worry about it while we are away and therefore we can stay longer.’’
