DREAM HOMES

Ride the wave of seaside living

7 Seahaven Place, Jan Juc 

STORY: PRUE MILLER

There’s a line of great Victorian surf beaches whose names stir images of crispy, scalding sand during long, hot summers and dramatically grey, windswept winter days on deserted stretches of shoreline.

Torquay, Jan Juc, Bells Beach: You can almost hear the roar of the waves from here. A property that takes full advantage of the ocean’s daily dance, with enough space to make a dramatic design come to life, can be found at 7 Seahaven Place, Jan Juc.

The living area, isolated from two wings of bedrooms, is what some would call a ‘see-through’ creation. From outside in the pool, you can see through two walls of glass, through the 140sqm living room zone, to the ocean. From the centre of the living area you can see through to the outside world on either side, without the hindrance of walls or architectural diversion.

Enhanced by the elevation of the 1673sqm block, the sense of freedom is breathtaking and rather organic. Polished concrete floors, contemporary timber accents, seaside landscaping, even the stacked stone pool edging, create a strong sense of place.

This property takes full advantage of the ocean’s daily dance, with enough space to make a dramatic design come to life.

Where the speckled concrete floor of the dining and kitchen zone ends, the cosiness of the carpeted lounge area completed by a large gas fireplace begins. The kitchen is gorgeous, open and sleek.

From this end of the living zone, a wooden staircase leads to the elevated main bedroom suite. The top of the castle. From the bed, you can take in sweeping views from surrounding windows. There’s also a large window seat (that would accommodate Sunday afternoon book reading like no other) a very generous dressing area and a large ensuite. Beyond the bedroom, a study and retreat zone, are cleverly positioned away from a potentially slumbering partner.

Four large bedrooms take up the space on the opposite wing, gently staggered up the slope of the block. The lowest floor has room for eight cars, a large workspace and if you absolutely had to, room for a gym.

Here is a property that seems to move with the grace of a wave against a rugged shoreline. Advancing and retreating, but always protected from greater forces. The excitement of nature, enhanced by the brilliance of this built environment.
