This week’s House of the Week – 7 Ivy St, Riverton


WITH 180-degree views of Riverton’s coastline, sun-drenched living quarters, an adjoining bed and breakfast below, this ocean haven boasts endless possibilities.

Positioned on the hill and overlooking all Riverton has to offer, this two-storey home has more than just the appeal of stunning beach scenery.

From the street entrance to the property, a single garage is all that is visible – but what lies beyond the privately fenced section is where the real appeal can be discovered.

A gate leads to the back lawn of the property, where well-established gardens, raised beds and a paved courtyard provide the ideal space for entertaining.

Upon entry through the front door is a neat laundry area with plenty of storage space.

The adjoining doorway opens on to a spacious living room, which reaps the benefits of sun and spectacular views.

Off the lounge are three tidy double bedrooms, all with wardrobes and tidy finishings.

One of the double bedrooms, which is being used as a walk-in wardrobe, has an exposed wall closet fitted with clothing racks and shelves.

On the other side of the main living area is a bathroom with a shower, basin, storage cupboards and a separate single toilet.

An open-plan kitchen and dining area is home to a bar-style wraparound bench top, with a double-draw dishwasher, double oven, gas hob, extractor fan, sink, and generous pantry storage.

Looping back around the front of the home, the dining area leads to cosy sun room – one of the property’s biggest gems.

Tiled and spacious enough for lounge chairs, the area offers picturesque views of the ocean and leads out to a deck.

Stairs leading from the deck act as the buffer between the upstairs family quarters and two separate, self-contained living areas.

Both units come fully furnished, with a tea and coffee perch, a mini-fridge and toaster – all the amenities needed to host guests or a possible bed and breakfast.

With a double bed in each, one of the units also has a single bed in the adjoining room.

Each have bathrooms which are home to a luxurious spa bath, shower, sink, and toilet.

A veranda shelters the shared decked area just outside the units and direct access to the beach via a private walkway is an added feature of this versatile property. Sportswear DesignAir Jordan
