If you are still wondering what to give dad this Father’s Day, here is an idea right out of the box.
It will especially suit the dad who’s hard to buy for – although it will cost more than a pair of socks or jocks.
Meet 50 Flinders Ave, St Ives. A standout home, with just about every feature you could ever need – and then some you didn’t even know you wanted.
Like the showroom-style, five-car garage with luxury man cave that would be right up there as one of the best Father’s Day gifts ever.
There is room for all the toys and a stylish side room ideal for a couple of lounges and a big TV – or turn it into an up-market workshop.
And that’s just the beginning at this one-year-old Homestead Homes-built property.
A remote-controlled lift takes you from the garage to each of the home’s two upper levels.
Set on the high side of the road with a north-to-rear aspect, the home has impressive street appeal and easy access.
James Levy, of Ray White Upper North Shore, said the home was exceptional in every way, from the design to the level of luxury finishes throughout.
Soaring ceilings and open plan living and dining areas enhance the feeling of space, and walls of bifolds and sliders stack away to bring the outside in.
The home accommodates every season with ease – a gas fireplace in the family room keeps the winter out, and the outdoor living spaces, level lawn and tiled pool bring the summer in.
Another great feature of the home are the two main bedrooms – one on each floor.
Mr Levy said this was creating plenty of interest from families looking for enough space for multi-generational living.
“This is a very unique home, not only from the accommodation point of view,” he said.
“It’s also one of the best streets in St Ives and close to everything.
“This is not a standard home, it’s not a home you’re going to walk into have seen anywhere before. It’s a standout.”
The property is scheduled to go to auction on September 19, with a price guide of $4.5 million to $4.95 million.
