WELL SUITED: With two lounges and four bedrooms, this two-storey Ohope home is perfect for families. Photos Open2View

Families seeking a relaxed beach lifestyle will find much that appeals in this Ocean Road home.

PRIVACY and proximity to the ocean combine in this freshly refurbished family home at Ohope.

Nestled down a right-of-way, away from the sea winds but with views of the sea, this Ocean Road home has much to offer families looking for an easy beach lifestyle.

The substantial two-storey home has been recently renovated and offers a light, bright and modern space.

Freshly painted and carpeted, and with double glazing installed upstairs, the home is sitting empty making it easy for prospective buyers to walk in and imagine where their furniture and artwork might go, and how the home might work for them.

The design is one that provides multiple options.

Downstairs there is an open plan living/dining/kitchen with a predominantly neutral décor throughout, boosted with a splash of very dark blue in the kitchen. Timber ceiling beams and wood panelling are a feature of the downstairs living areas.

Flow to the outdoors is well catered for with ranchsliders and bifold doors opening the space to various parts of the garden, including a large covered deck to the east, and a sheltered paved barbeque area at the rear.

A compact laundry located behind bifolding doors, a bathroom and a bedroom with double wardrobe and ranch slider access to the front deck complete the downstairs.

Upstairs, the timber that served as a subtle feature below, has more of a presence making for a stylish ceiling that accentuates the angles of the roofline.

There is a second lounge up here along with another three bedrooms – or two bedrooms and an office – the choice is yours. There is also a second bathroom, essential for families.

With plenty of north-facing windows, the upstairs is a warm, sunny zone that comes with the bonus of another deck, and views to the sea.

The house sits on a 987 square metre section that has been well developed.

Out front the large cobbled driveway provides masses of parking for vehicles, motorhomes and boats with secure lock-up for the beach toys in the double internal access garage.

The gardens are well-established and easy care with a tropical vibe appropriate to the seaside location.

Inspect this week, bid at the auction and this home could be yours for summer.
