It will be unsurprising to visitors to 48 The Lookout, Thirroul that the current owner has a background in architecture and interiors.

Years of carefully thought-out “room-by-room” updates have yielded an aesthetic and feel to every corner of the home that the owner knows she’ll miss.

“I love the differing light quality based on where you are in the house. There are three different living rooms and four different outdoor spaces, so no matter what the weather is doing, what kind of view you want to look at or what mood you’re in, you’ll be able to find it in this home,” she says.

“Whether it’s grey and rainy and you want to look at the roaring ocean or it’s a cold winter morning and you want to watch the sunrise, you can.

“I’m a person who is very affected by my spacial experience, and I have loved that about this house. I think it’s a rare quality to find in a home.”

Perched high on 658 sqm of prime Thirroul real estate, this beautiful four-bedroom two-bathroom home didn’t always look this way.

When the owner arrived the beautiful Australian hardwood floors were covered in an oil-based sealant and there wasn’t a patch of white to be seen.

“We loved the outlook of the house and the fact that it sits on a corner block, it feels like you’re sitting up there in your own haven,” she says.

“So we took it room by room to ensure we loved the look and feel of every single one.

“There are rooms surrounded with such leafy, lush surrounds that you don’t even need window coverings to enjoy complete privacy, which has been really beautiful.”

Stripped back and restored, the home now boasts a contemporary, crisp and stylish aesthetic inside and out.

The recently upgraded kitchen sits central to the floorplan, and multiple living spaces flow through the home, spilling out to the entertainment decks. This arrangement caters to diverse experiences in the home, from entertaining friends to enjoying quality family time or simply unwinding with a good book and a glass of wine.

Upstairs, high-pitched ceilings and generous windows invite an abundance of natural light and beautiful cross breezes.

The spacious main bedroom has a modern ensuite and plenty of storage, with a further three bedrooms on the ground floor all with built-in wardrobes.

There’s also a new bathroom and laundry.

The lower level of the home has been converted from a double-car garage into a third living space, built to the highest standard, with ambient moody lighting, herringbone oak flooring and an abundance of storage.

While it could quite easily be converted back to a double-car garage, the separate entry and stylish setup provide potential to be used as a family games room, exercise space, studio, at-home office or a place of business.

Selling agent Vanessa Denison-Pender of McGrath says all these spaces have been cleverly arranged over three levels to promote warmth and connection throughout.

“The owner has an eye for detail and presentation, which I think has brought this already lovely house to the next level,” she says.

“It has enormous street appeal from the outside, and inside, people will love how the residence makes them feel. You step inside and it feels like you’ve come home, and you just know from the way it flows that this is a home that brings the family together.”

Located a short walk from vibrant Thirroul village, featuring popular cafes and boutique stores such as Luca Luna, Few and Far, Black Market Roasters, local bars, restaurants and Anita’s Theatre, this residence provides a rare lifestyle opportunity.
