Melding into the coastal landscape of a half-acre allotment (approx) to capture broad views of the bay, ‘Somers’ is an iconic 1950s beach house spectacularly reimagined into a private beachside paradise of grand proportions with an infinity-edged heated swimming pool and deluxe new pool house.
Within exclusive Yamala Estate atop Olivers Hill and just a leisurely 300-metre downhill stroll to the sand, the residence celebrates seaside living with sundrenched spaces, blackbutt hardwood floors and banks of sliding glass and French doors throughout fostering a seamless unity between indoors and out.
A gourmand’s kitchen with cascading stone benchtop, 900mm Smeg oven with gas cooktop, integrated Miele dishwasher and a farmhouse sink is complemented by a butler’s pantry, while the expansive free-flowing floorplan provides three living areas, a dining zone and vast entry foyer-come-gallery with crackling open fireplace.
Modernised in sympathetic accord with the original character of the mid-century home, the residence delights with a contemporary ensuite with floor-to-ceiling tile and dressing room in the master, a full modern family bathroom with soaker tub and two powder rooms.
A wall of sliding glass off the dining zone peels open to the barbecue deck and jaw-dropping pool house with a full second kitchen, bathroom, polished concrete floors and a vergola ceiling for exceptional poolside entertaining, while the slate alfresco terrace on the north-westerly side provides an idyllic setting for an afternoon cocktail as the sun sinks into the bay.
Close to Toorak College, Yamala Bowls/Tennis Club, Mt Eliza village and Frankston’s vibrant entertainment precinct, this elite property comes with a gym with sauna and additional shower, built-in study nook, two fireplaces, ducted heating and cooling, 5kW solar panels, cubby house and veggie beds behind electronic gated entry amid parklike gardens.
