Located in one of Portsea’s most coveted streets, this elegant coastal home — designed by legendary Australian architect, Guildford Bell — is privately set back from the street with farm gates and a white pebble drive giving nothing away.

Beyond the Moonah trees, atop the cliff, appears the 5-bedroom, 5-bathroom, 2-car garage home, built upon approximately 2965sqm of land only minutes’ walk to Shelley Beach.

The inspiring entrance — with an internal courtyard — provides a sense of arrival for what is a meticulously presented single level home, with a classic coastal getaway feel.

The property features the main house, complete with 4-bedrooms and 4-bathrooms, and boasts light-timber floors and panelling on the walls, with a vaulted ceiling in the living room further adding to the home’s coastal allure.

Here, the home’s airy design — courtesy of the light palette of white and blonde — hosts a luxurious entertaining space dominated by the kitchen, which features a combination of blonde timbers and stone veneers. Also here, the living space sees a fireplace for chillier nights while sliding glass doors allow for seamless access to the outdoor entertaining area.

Elsewhere, the home’s accommodation is broken up into wings, with one flank of the house holding three bedrooms, two of which hold their own ensuites. The opposite side of the house sees the master suite complete built-in robes, expansive coastal themed ensuite and private study.

Outside is a scene from a Mediterranean village, with the alfresco entertaining area adorned by bougainvillea and a stretch of rolling green turf.

Beyond the immediate outdoor area, the property is privy to its very own, resort-style pool house. Completely equipped and self-contained, the pavilion sees its own sunken lounge —ideal for relaxing with a Mai Tai — alongside the pool itself. The accommodation features its own open living space with fireplace, galley style kitchenette and bedroom with ensuite.

Further features offered by the property include the double lock up garage, with off-street parking for four additional cars, CCTV, fully irrigated garden with bore water, garden lighting, wired in audio system and more.

The listing is with Patrick Skin (+61 418 378 759) and Rob Curtain (+61 418 310 870) of Peninsula Sotheby’s International Realty. Price guide; $8.75 million – $9.5 million.

On the Market for the First Time, This Hamptons Beach House Is Listed for Nearly $26 Million

The home in the village of Sagaponack has plenty of balconies to take in the surrounding water views

A waterfront home in the Hamptons village of Sagaponack, New York, is on the market for the very first time.

Asking $25.95 million, the gray shingle-style home was built in 2008 by the seller and has since been available as a summer rental, but it’s never been up for sale.

Designed by architect Faruk Yorgancioglu, the “waterfront home offers privacy and panoramic beauty that cannot be duplicated under today’s zoning laws,” said co-listing agent Marilyn Clark of Sotheby’s International Realty – Bridgehampton Brokerage.

The seller bought the property, which at the time had two small structures, at auction in 2005 for approximately $2 million, according to co-listing agent Deborah Pirro of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty. Mansion Global could not contact the seller.

The home hit the market Thursday, and in addition to Clark and Pirro, it is co-listed by Raquel Lopez of Sotheby’s International Realty – Bridgehampton Brokerage and Diane Anderson of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty.

Spanning 6,000 square feet, the home is filled with bright interiors, which were designed by New York-based interior designer Steven Gambrel. The open gourmet kitchen flows into a casual dining area and a living space with a fireplace, which is one of two double-sided fireplaces in the home, Pirro said.

“The placement and scale of fireplaces throughout the home is perfection,” she added.

A separate dining room has French doors that open onto a deck, listing photos show.

There are six en-suite bedrooms, including two primary bedrooms. The larger of the two is its own private retreat, outfitted with a fireplace, a sunroom and a large balcony, offering a space to watch the sun set over Sagaponack Pond, according to Sotheby’s.

The home sits on a little more than an acre of waterfront land, bordering Sagaponack Pond, where there’s a private dock, and looking out at the Atlantic Ocean in the distance.

“The location on the pond with the view of the ocean waves breaking is spectacular and unique,” Clark said. “You are close to beaches and the Sagaponack General Store. It is a quick paddle to the famous Sagg Main Beach.”

Other outside amenities include a gunite swimming pool and a hot tub, which are surrounded by a spacious deck, as well as a pool cabana, which has a full bathroom, changing rooms and a sauna. There’s also multiple balconies, decks and a screened porch overlooking the pool, striking a balance between indoor and outdoor living.
