Easy Living in Casuarina
The small town of Casuarina is home to less than 3,000 residents and sits about halfway between the Cudgen Headland at Kingscliff and Norries Head. That’s an unbroken stretch of soft white sand that makes the Tweed Coast a fantastic place to go if you like taking long walks on the beach. You won’t find the crowds that flock to the beaches located just a little further to the north and will be amazed at just how pristine things look in this part of the world.
People come from overseas and all parts of Australia to experience the famous sun, sand and surf of the country’s iconic Gold Coast. The beaches along the Tweed Coast, just a few miles to the south, are wide, clean and often almost barren. Grab your morning coffee and head for the water to watch the waves break in a show you’ll feel was put on just for you. The Hastings Point Lookout is the place to go if you want to spot dolphins or pods of whales, and there are some lovely places to stop for lunch in Cabarita on the way home. Heading the other way, Kingscliff has a small shopping complex and you can always catch a film at the cineplex on a rainy day.
If you enjoy an active lifestyle, Casuarina is the perfect base for outdoor adventures. Cycle the length of the coast from Kingscliff to Pottsville, golf at one of dozens of world-class courses on the Gold Coast or explore the magnificent rainforests of the hinterland. You’ll find that all the local attractions, fine dining, fresh fruit stands, markets and cozy cafés are within easy reach of your new beachfront home.
Your Home in Casuarina
The immaculate prize home is located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, surrounded by leafy trees and steps from the path to the beach. It’s been designed with a distinctive maritime flair that begins with the marine-blue accents on the crisp white exterior. Entering the front door, you’ll be struck by how bright and breezy the home feels, an ambiance that’s helped along by high ceilings and extra windows that let in masses of natural light.
The open plan living area has a comfy lounge, a dining table that easily seats eight and a gleaming white kitchen with a double-wide island. There’s even a casual nook with benches and throw cushions where you can work on a hobby or enjoy a game of cards. Between the dining and living areas, wide doors open onto a side patio with a fire pit in the spacious fenced yard. Across from the kitchen, two sets of right-angled doors open fully to integrate the alfresco and outdoor lounge with the main living area. Deep couches look onto the T-shaped swimming pool that gives you a lovely place to cool off on a hot day.
One of the bedrooms sits near the ground level entry and is the perfect place for guests as it boasts its own ensuite. The master bedroom, also with ensuite, is at the top of the landing on the second level. Two more bedrooms, each with a walk-in robe, are at the rear beyond the open media room. A full bathroom is also at level with both a soaking tub and walk-in shower. There’s a large flat-screen television in the media room and another on the wall in the master suite.
The décor of the home can best be described as casual-chic with lots of rattan, timbered accent pieces, cushions and area rugs. The dominant white motif is softened with muted greys, teal and deep marine-blue touches. It all adds up to a home that has a wonderful central area for entertaining, plenty of outdoor living space, and well-proportioned bedrooms that will make your family and guests feel right at home.
