Direct access to the beach, 150m from the front door!
Located on a quarter acre block, this two storey home is positioned on a no through road, easy and safe for young children to race back and forth from the beach, the general store and fish n chips is only just around the corner too! In the evening, take a seat on the upstairs balcony and watch the sun set over Rivoli Bay! With plenty of room and cooking facilities to entertain in the shed as well as store the boat and van and all the paddle boards and beach toys, this property will be a hit with families! On the ground level, a front and rear decked verandah are wide enough for outdoor furniture and enjoyment of the garden. Inside, the living space has polished pine floorboards, a reverse cycle air conditioner and plenty of room for casual dining. Beneath the carpeted stair case, double doors open to a storage cupboard and while on the subject of doors, the lower level rooms all have gorgeous cedar doors. The warmth of timber features in the kitchen too with Tasmanian Oak cabinetry, tough Corian benchtops and a Miele dishwasher, the laundry is adjacent as is a formal dining room which could be utilised as a fourth bedroom or guest room, a second bathroom is also on the ground level. Upstairs are three large carpeted bedrooms, two with sea views and one with a wall length built in robe. There is a large two way bathroom of a corner shower, vanity, claw foot cast iron bath, toilet and the convenience of a laundry chute. The top level has a door directly onto the balcony which offers magic sea views to the west as well as views of the natural scrub to the east and south. Most fisherman will be delighted with the 15m x 7.5m shed which doubles as a terrific entertaining space, a freestanding slow combustion wood heater, rangehood, plenty of sink space for preparation and washing up and a plumbed cray cooker. A recently installed 6.6kW solar system is on the roof and there is a huge amount of space in front of the shed for extra parking or more shedding if desired. In addition there is a 3m x 3m garden shed. The property has a generous supply of water with 3 tanks, a capacity of 5600 gal each and an equipped bore. Three phase power is connected to the house and shed. If you are interested in securing a coastal lifestyle in close proximity to one of the best beaches on the Limestone Coast or a great holiday residence, I recommend booking an appointment to visualise the possibility!
