About this listing
The classic sixties-style home is set on an exceptional corner block; the dirt road and narrow strip of foreshore reserve is all that separates the home from the stairs to the beach. Why not have a swim or catch a flatty of two? Or you could kayak the many kilometres of sheltered waters winding through conservation areas including Quail Island. Magic.
The home has a large living / dining area overlooking Rutherford Inlet where you can watch the wooden fishing boats swing on their moorings with the changing tides. Recent renovations include new cladding, roofing and wiring; also ducted evaporative cooling. An American Quadra-Fire combustion heater warms the house. Polished bamboo flooring and a neutral palette create a relaxed sense of spaciousness. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances plus a walk-in pantry/storage room; the bathroom has a corner bath.
The original bungalow with its views of the inlet, built-in bunk beds, polished wooden floors and small bathroom / laundry is evocative of family holidays of a past era. A split-system air-conditioner has been installed.
Other features of the property include a four-bay lock-up shed with access from both Irene Parade and Bluff Road, off-street driveway parking, wood shed, raised vegetable gardens and compost boxes, water storage under the front porch, north-facing paved patio and native hedging. If you like the idea of admiring your boat from your loungeroom window, an optional boat mooring can be included. Enjoy the privilege & privacy of your own 2 titled allotments, or utilise the second block (STCA) for further development. This is an idyllic lifestyle and investment opportunity by the water, yet less than 70 kms to Melbourne's CBD.
