This big family home is on two elevated lots within walking distance of Queens Beach.
Owners Scott and Shelly Morcombe had the Planation Homes property built at 17 Mein St, Scarborough in 2007 to make the most of the elevated 1,068sq m block and sea breezes.
“I love the space, the light and the breezes that (come) through. We get beautiful sea breezes all summer,” Ms Morcombe said.
There is a swimming pool in the big backyard. Picture: supplied.
“And because of big windows and how we placed the gardens, it feels like the gardens are inside.
“I also love the size of the yard. The kids never went to the park because we had one in our yard.”
Downstairs the home has an open-plan living, dining and kitchen area with stacker doors opening to an entertaining area.
There is also a rumpus room, lounge room, guest room, powder room and laundry on this level.
Upstairs, the master bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe, balcony access and ensuite with double spa bath, shower and dual basins.

The remaining three bedrooms have built-in wardrobes and there is a family bathroom, separate toilet and a TV area opening to the upstairs balcony.
Outside there is an inground swimming pool, with spa and water feature, established gardens and side access with concreted space for the boat or trailer.
Ms Morcombe said she and her husband were selling to downsize but they would miss how easy it was to entertain in their big family home.

“I’ll miss the parties and big Christmas dinners,” she said.
“We could have 27 for a sit down dinner and the kitchen is so big it coped beautifully.”
Ms Morcome said the home would suit a big family wanting a home in a “beautiful, quiet, welcoming” community.
“Everything is handy. You can walk to the schools and the beach is just a wander away,” she said.
The property is being marketed by Stephan Siegfried of One Agency.
