A one-storey, three-bedroom home in an Adelaide beachside suburb has taken the crown as the most-viewed property on realestate.com.au this week, new data has revealed.

The 2 Rio Vista Avenue, West Beach house sits on 704 square metres of land and looks unassuming from the outside.

Built in the 1960s but renovated recently, stepping indoors takes you into an airy, well-lit modern oasis that combines white walls and benches with exposed red brick.

The dining room space also blends into the living room, which features a suspended fireplace.

“Arriving in the open plan living, set behind a chic sliding barn door, the Adult's retreat is perfectly decadent; from sleek pendant lighting, to a magazine-worthy ensuite and generous robe, and garden views, what more could you ask for?” the listing states.

The floor plan indicates the house has three bedrooms, one with an ensuite, as well as a study space.

Entering the bedroom through the sliding barn doors takes you into a room with exposed brick walls and features in-built bauble-like bedside lights that dangle from the ceiling.

The living room’s balcony doors compactly fold to open up to the outside deck, which features a large covered area that comfortably covers a table of six, perfect for barbeques outside in the summer months.

Crossing the roomy backyard takes you to the outdoor wood-fired pizza oven.

While the lengthy driveway can comfortably accommodate two cars, there is also a car space to protect vehicles from the elements.

“Homes like this certainly don't come around everyday,” the listing states.

The house will go to auction at 9am today, with the final inspection right before that, at 8:30am.

While the average house in West Beach is worth $902,000, hopeful buyers can expect to pay upwards of this price for “a truly unique modern home finessed to perfection”.
