Adelaide. 31 Wood Street, Millswood. $3.5m-$3.7m
Kelly and Fraser Ainsworth knew exactly what they wanted from their family home: it should be light, bright and with lots of space for entertaining. “We built it for fun and it always has been fun,” says Kelly. Set on a 1779sq m block, their six-bedroom home has a north-south tennis court, swimming pool and large, covered alfresco dining area.

Perth. 88 Flora Terrace, North Beach. $2.5m+
North Beach is a short walk from this much-loved family home and there is plenty of space to watch the ocean. Nick Mylonas built his five-bedroom home 15 years ago, attracted by the “forever views” from this elevated 1012sq m block. “The views are magnificent and ever-changing,” he says. Large balconies wrap around the upper level of the home and an alfresco dining area downstairs overlooks the garden.

83 Burgess Road, Forster. $1.795m
This holiday home sits high on a cliff overlooking Burgess Beach and neighbouring Booti Booti National Park. Designed by a local architect and lovingly maintained by vendor Grant Muller, the four-bedroom home has been a favourite coastal retreat. Large windows let light flood the living space and a sheltered pool is protected by a curved wall that mimics the lines of the rock face and ocean below.

Jane and Chris Jamieson used to holiday on beautiful Bruny Island and decided to retire
here three years ago. Their four-bedroom home overlooks Nebraska Beach with a French Provincial-inspired dining room that frames water views. “It’s so peaceful and the views from our deck are breathtaking,” says Jane. “You get off the ferry and you can just feel yourself relaxing.”
