Tropical holiday at home

A move to the northern part of Western Australia may not have crossed buyers’ minds previously, however, thanks to border closures, places like Broome have been exposed for their incredible beauty and all they have to offer.

Located in a perfect beachside location overlooking Roebuck Bay, 1 Scott Street is an impressive holiday home with the perfect outdoor pool area.

One thing the home is not short of is water features. A unique wow factor, immediately visible when first stepping into the home, the entrance way is bordered by two feature ponds.

“It’s architecturally designed and is probably something you would see more in Cottesloe or something like that – it’s not a classic Broome home, but it really does make the best of the location, flooded with natural light and amazing views,” Ray White Broome Sales Consultant Giles Tipping said.

The standout feature of the home, however, is the stunning extra-wide pool and entertaining area at the rear.

“The property has got an amazing 17m lap pool, an extensive undercover entertaining area and an outdoor kitchen,” Mr Tipping said.

The pool can be appreciated from every level of the home – while an abundance of downlights means the area is just as impressive at night when lounging and listening to the sounds of the trickling water feature.

The entertainer’s delights don’t stop there, with two balconies – one perfect for an outdoor dining area and the other as an upper observation deck – making it easy to take in Broome’s purple sunsets.

“There are really wonderful views, but it only gets better as you go up a staircase from the alfresco area onto the observation deck – they’re just some of the best views in Broome from there,” Mr Tipping said.

“So, it is really quite a great spot for a gin and tonic or a glass of champagne in the evenings.”

Inside, the home boasts elegant Tasmanian oak floors, which bring a natural warmth to each room, and is kept simple and appealing with cream walls throughout, creating a consistent, warm, neutral colour scheme.

A simple and modern white kitchen makes for a clean design and incorporates an island bench to look over the ocean view while using the sink.

“In the kitchen and dining area you get access out onto the first-floor alfresco area where you’ve got a beautiful Ferguson outdoor kitchen,” Mr Tipping said.

The master bedroom also resides on the first floor and is both unique and impressive, with high ceilings and a doorless divide between the bedroom and ensuite, maximising its sense of space.

The ensuite contains a shower area which breaks the mould of the typical design, including twin showers and a romantic spa bath.

Whether the home is used for a family or to accommodate short holiday stays, residents are sure to be impressed with all of the features and living areas crammed under the same roof.

“When you’re in the home you don’t really need to leave it,” Mr Tipping said.

“I know people when they come and holiday here, they generally just stay in the house – you can enjoy yourself enough in the property to warrant spending your whole Broome time in the house.

“You can accommodate multiple groups in the property at one time without anyone feeling like they’re on top of each other.”
