Originally built in the 1950's with a later extension, this house is on a great corner block, with a self-contained studio and opposite little shops that include a general store and a super cafe. It's an easy walk to North Avalon Beach and an easy cycle down the hill to Avalon Village proper.
The original entry is up sandstone steps to an enclosed east-facing sun room and the combined living and dining area. Walk through to two ground floor bedrooms with high ceilings and narrow tallow wood floors overlooking the garden, plus a shared bathroom.
A staircase at the other end of the living room leads to two large upstairs bedrooms with lots of natural light, a small washroom in between, and a wide balcony overlooking the rear/side garden.
Back downstairs, head into the kitchen - a good-sized room with marble floors and a super high ceiling that could easily be combined with the living room.
Out through the back door, turn left and there's a large laundry, carry on ahead and you're in the back garden. Through the laundry is what was originally a large garage below the two upstairs bedrooms. It's currently let out as a private studio with a soaring ceiling, loft bed, bright bathroom and kitchenette, and also has its own courtyard and private entrance. It makes a great office, studio, or granny flat as is, or could be reinstated as a garage or integrated into the main house to connect the living area and garden. The possibilities are endless.
The back garden is also full of potential – add a carport (driveway's already paved) or rip up the concrete, plant a few trees for privacy, get some turf and you've got a lovely back yard for the kids and entertaining. There's even space, level ground, and easy access to add a pool. The front could be opened up for space and light by removing a few of the larger trees, or left as is for privacy. The choice (and vision) is yours.
It's true, the layout is a bit quirky...but it works! And you can certainly feel the love!
