Old time charm in a classic sandstone and weatherboard home...and the scene is set, for a relaxed beachside lifestyle. An easy, level, 600m walk to the popular north Avalon Beach with no roads to cross! And the shops, cafes, schools and restaurants of the village are only minutes away via the walking track at the rear. At present, the house is discretely divided for use as a main residence and a rental wing, but it's true potential is seen when viewed as one.
Entering via a shaded front garden across a large terracotta tiled terrace, the front door opens to a large living space with east-facing french doors. Along the bedroom wing, a light filled corridor leads to three generous bedrooms, two with built-ins and window box seats, and all with original double hung windows. There's a shared, large, bathroom, with bath and separate shower.
In the main wing of the house and on a level of its own, is a romantic master bedroom with en-suite and wardrobes charmingly built into the roof space. French doors lead to a timber deck overlooking the private rear garden offering the perfect spot for a coffee and the Sunday papers...
Downstairs, and into the main living room is a fabulous multi-functional space. There's a beautiful wood-burning fireplace for chilly nights, a bright living space and a large country kitchen, leading through to an over-sized laundry with generous storage...it doubles as a butler's pantry for the dedicated cook! All this opens onto a wide timber deck, stepping down to a sweeping level lush lawn, with mature gardens and a separate guest bedroom with outdoor hot & cold shower. With lime washed floors and period features throughout, the home exudes warmth and character.
And across the garden….an architect designed fully self-contained studio with the feeling of a tropical tree-house. With lime washed cathedral ceilings and bi-fold doors welcoming in northerly sun, the studio has its own outdoor shower and undercover storage area. Winding through established gardens and along a leafy lane way, the house offers direct access to the famous 'yellow brick road' without ever having to cross a road to reach the beach.
It simply doesn't get better than that!
