You will probably even choose a bedroom in case a vacancy arises.
The popular interior designer and her husband Sean bought the property a few years ago, after selling another house in Collaroy Basin & # 39; s Beach Rd.
She started a large-scale renovation of No. 4 and the result is a masterpiece. It is difficult to put the style in a box. It is classic Dita Nicholls genre, a mix of French provincial, Hamptons and Australian beach house.
She said that the design was all about embracing all the styles she loved and making the most of the privacy and space.
"It's a nice house with an element of elegance," Nicholls said. "When you walk into a house and it makes you happy, you've got the job, I laugh every time I walk through the front door."
There are also many practical issues here – double street access, self-contained, one bedroom apartment, air conditioning and an outdoor shower – ideal after a walk to the beach, which is only 220 meters away.

Every square centimeter of the block block of 697m² has been used, with lush gardens that offer absolute privacy.
The 18-meter glass-fronted swimming pool is heated by solar energy and the spa is heated on gas all year round. And, of course, there is a wine cellar.
The kitchen is an absolute feast of luxury and practicality and is a central gathering place for the couple and their two children. It opens to a terrace and an outdoor kitchen with fireplace and barbecue.
"It really is a great entertaining home," Nicholls said.

Although this was intended as the home of the family forever, it seems that Nicholls is not quite ready to go laurels to rest, so they are looking for another project.
"I love doing this," she said. "One day we will settle down."
The property is being sold through a campaign with expressions of interest with Belle Property Dee Why, closing on 6 September at 14.00. Inspection is by appointment and the price guide is $ 5,000,000.
