RESIDING in the heart of Newport, 'Magnolia Manor' offers luxurious living and is set on 1277sqm of estate like grounds.

The home presents grand dimensions, 12 foot ceilings, Tasman oak herringbone floors and custom French doors with the primary living areas spilling out to the shady sandstone verandahs, gorgeous gardens and heated pool.

Bearing the graceful lines of a colonial highlander, this much-admired residence noted for its classic Australian architectural themes, has been reimagined from the ground up.

Current owners Suzi and Rob Bryden said the renovations had been a labour of love.

"This was supposed to be our forever home," Suzi said. "We wanted glamour, luxury and comfort with a great location. So the renovations have been finished to a really high end spec. Every conceivable thing has been done, it is walk-in ready."

Spanning one sublime level there are five bedrooms including the deluxe master suite featuring dual robes, an elegant en-suite with dual showers and rear garden access.

The gorgeous new designer kitchen has SMEG appliances and views across the pool while the alfresco terrace also has a built-in kitchen.

"We had Secret Gardens come in to do the landscaping and they have done an amazing job. We had fully grown plants craned in to give us an instant garden," Suzi said.

This divine estate has a triple lock-up garage and is gated for privacy.

It is located less than than a five-minute walk to Newport village, beach and rockpools.

"We bought this property for a sea change and we just love that we can sit out on the verandah with our morning coffee and hear the waves at the beach. You can't beat that!" Suzi said.
