Walk to the Beach
Welcome to a beautifully preserved 1960s house with stunning architectural features. At the north facing front there is a dining area for six and a quiet spot to sit on the verandah.
With the waters edge so close ,it is a great family and pet friendly beach home. Comfortable and large enough to accommodate a family or two but still cosy enough for couples, groups or a single family. This unique property is a rare gem hidden amongst the beachside houses at Capel Sound which sits only 200 metres from the bayside beach at Capel Sound Foreshore. Here you will find beautiful sandy beaches and quintessential bathing boxes (a hidden gem) and a few minutes walk to shops and restaurants.
The house is nestled into a well established garden block with towering gum trees and native foliage. Once you enter the garden entrance you are transformed into your own private world. Located in a quiet street, the sound of birdlife will sooth you for much of the day and watch the stars through the trees at night.
Open the door and enter a beautiful entranceway with stone floor and floor to ceiling windows. Light and bright it is the centre of the house that is designed in a H layout. There is also a built in laundry in here behind the double doors. To your left there is a large lounge and dining with full length windows and vaulted ceiling and a beautiful original stone wall feature and parquetry floor. A large TV and U-shaped lounge is the ultimate location. A gas log fire gives you cosiness for winter stays. There is a modern dining table for 8 with low lighting overhead to give you the ambient mood you require and a server from the original kitchen. The kitchen is original in its design with beautifully preserved wooden cupboard from floor to ceiling. The electric hob is in pristine condition for its age and so is the cooker. This is a fully equipped kitchen with everything you need for a self catering escape.
There are two bedrooms and bathroom. A Queen Size bedroom beautifully decorated to match the feel of the house with floor to ceiling robes. A second bedroom has two single beds (plus a trundle bed if you need a 7th guest) and both bedrooms have stainless steel overhead fans.
- Bedroom 1: Queen Bed
- Bedroom 2: Twin Singles plus Trundle
- Bedroom 3: Queen Bed
- Main House: A central bathroom with retro tiling in a calming blue with stainless steel finishes is perfect for the house.
- Martini Lounge: Ensuite Bathroom with shower
There is still more to this wonderful property. Open the door to the internal garden and take a step left and you are at the door of a studio - which has always been known as the Martini Lounge. This studio space has a small kitchen with microwave, a bathroom and queen bedroom and small private lounge with TV, complete with Netflix . This is a great private space and although it is so close to the house (in fact it is attached) you do need to take a step outside to get to it but its perfect for an extended family or group. You could safely pop the kids in here with a movie while you drank your cocktails in the main lounge.
The internal courtyard garden has bench dining and is completely secluded for private evenings al fresco, the BBQ is here too hidden away for aesthetics but close enough to cook and enjoy a chat with the diners. Just behind a black bamboo fence is a sunny spot with chairs again completely private for sunning yourself during the day.
