If you've ever dreamed of making the often talked about sea change, then this property really does have it all. Imagine waking up to the sound of birdsong in the treetops and the gentle beat of waves lapping against the shoreline. Imaging further, donning your wetsuit, grabbing your favourite board from the rack and taking a leisurely stroll across the street to your own patrolled surf beach and catching a wave.
Conserving just enough energy to make it home, surf board under arm, you hop under the perfectly placed outdoor shower to remove the salt and sand before plunging into a steaming spa to ease your aching muscles with a glass of red, maybe a Dirty Three Aldo Shiraz. We're speculating of course but perfect days like these will come easy living at 62 Lohr Avenue.
Aside from the absolutely amazing Lohr Avenue location the design and "flow" of this home truly is spectacular. Everything here is top of the line from the beautiful polished concrete floors to the well thought out and oh so useable outdoor spaces.
