THE TONIC, Wamberal Beach
This luxury Hamptons-inspired home with beachfront access to Wamberal Beach has been designed to comfortably accommodate a family holiday or reunion for up to 12 people.
The furnishings and decor create a home away from home mood with calming, soft neutral tones. You can catch the sunrise and watch the ocean from the main living space with its large expanse of glass. Beyond, the indoor–outdoor ambience extends to a 180-degree, wrap around deck and terrace.
There are six peacefully styled bedrooms, four spa-like bathrooms (two of them ensuite) finished in a neutral palette of soft greys with black and bronze accents.
The kitchen features a large modern timber shaker design centred with a stone island benchtop, and comes complete with all the appliances to cook anything and everything for a family.
After a day at the beach, there is fine dining nearby, as well as in neighbouring Terrigal with its restaurants, trendy bars, cafes, and boutique shops, not to mention the new Terrigal Boardwalk to Terrigal Haven and the Skillion lookout.
