You surely will with this one!
A lot of great stuff came out of the '60s...granted, some of it is best left there! (Coffeemate, anyone? No thanks!). But in this case, "60s" has been reinvented. Now, it's Hamptons meets Hideaway, and the result is a happening home that you'll just have to have.
Sitting on the high side of the street, a level walk to Avalon Beach, this private light-filled timber cottage is bigger than it looks.
Here's how it rolls: The feelgood factor starts at the kerb. Take a look and breathe it in - the crisp black and white colour palate. It sets off the lush green garden all around. The sleek tin roof and weatherboard - it simply couldn't look any better!
Up the steps and across the lawn to a wide beautifully weathered timber deck, perfect for breakfast and dinner. A pair of glazed French doors and a wall of bi-folds enable you to open up the whole of the front...to Inside.
Ahead of you is the galley kitchen and dining. Timber tops and stainless steel appliances, and stacks of storage. To the left, there's family living, in a double height room with a cathedral ceiling, just oozing atmosphere. There's another wall of storage, and a fresh new family bathroom.
A timber and steel spiral staircase rises to a loft bedroom. There's a sliding barn door to another bedroom or study. This area is really interesting; if you don't need them as bedrooms, they can be re-purposed.
The living area opens to a rear, shaded, timber deck, from which steps rise to a flag-stoned sunny terrace, and to a separate laundry.
Seen enough? You want it, don't you..!? But wait, there's more...
Back inside, head to the stairs. There's a hideaway study behind doors, and a short set of stairs to the master bedroom, bright, light, en-suite and walk-in-wardrobe. Another short staircase to another bedroom, with a ladder to an open attic, fabulous for kids or short guests.
Walk around again. Make sure you've got it all...then head outside. There's a single garage...and under the front deck is garden shed heaven, storage for all your gear with easy access from the lawn.
Walk down the street to the beach or head down a lane and you're in the heart of Avalon in 5 minutes! If you're church-y, there's one at the end of the road. There's two primary schools walk-able distance from the house, along with express city transport.
This one will put a smile on your dial and wind in your sails, but be quick!
