As Advertised or by Appointment
Cannes Drive, just behind Riviera Avenue.. Someone around here was getting a bit wistful for the South of France weren't they? Capri Close around the corner might suggest some confusion.
Well, you can get great baguettes, decent croissants and fab quiche at the 'La Banette' bakery in Avalon, and 'Bistro Boulevard' is a favourite local french restaurant. So maybe they had a point.
So, what have we got here?
A solid brick veneer, 1970's built house, recently converted into 2 separate apartments. It's a walk down, through trees and plants on solid steps and timber boardwalks to the front door. The living areas on both levels are facing north, the larger, upstairs one, including both bedrooms opens to a sunny covered deck, plus kitchen, bathroom and separate loo. The huge entertaining deck open to all points of the compass, under which is a cavernous carport.
Downstairs, it's smaller, but still 2 beds, one opening to a deck, as does the living room, plus a kitchenette and bathroom.
This offers a heap of potential, live upstairs, rent out downstairs to help with the mortgage? You could eventually put it back together as one house, or split the purchase between you and your parents. Or entrust downstairs to your teenagers (actually, no, sorry, that's a bad idea!) or guests, paying or otherwise. Or just live between the whole place...
The good news is that the original staircase is still in situ, so joining it all back together is a matter of choice.
Either way, the vibe is good. Lots of light, white floorboards, tidy kitchens, updated 'on trend' bathrooms, and 'real retro' slate floors in the kitchen, with easy access to Avalon, village, beaches, schools and buses.
Voila! C'est tres bien!
