The four-bedroom home was inspired by Italian design. It is on a 897sq m block in the Riviera Estate.The foyer entry has a high ceiling void with an Italian chandelier. There is a formal lounge and dining room with a marble fireplace as well as an informal living room, next to the kitchen. Outside is the all weather patio with plantation shutters which concertina open. This area overlooks the pool house dining pavilion which has a kitchen and powder room and overlooks the 12m x 4m swimming pool. The home was designed by architect Paul Ziukelis. The area the couple spend the most time enjoying is actually outside of the house. There are two back patios where they enjoy sitting and overlooking the pool house and pool. “The patios are facing north so the aspect is gorgeous, it is beautiful in the summer and it is beautiful in the winter.’’Mrs Kennedy said they were selling because with four grandchildren living overseas, they were doing more travelling.“We do travel to see them and we worry about the house the whole time we are away, we worry about the gardens mainly. So we have decided that we are going to go back to Main Beach which is where we came from originally and get something that we can just lock up and leave and not have to worry about it while we are away and therefore we can stay longer.’’ ON THE MARKET Dine poolside.last_img read more
