A Stones throw to the beach
This unique property is a rare gem hidden amongst the beachside cottages at Capel Sound . An architecturally designed house with mid century modern features and which sits only 200 metres from the bayside beach at Capel Sound Foreshore. Here you will find sandy beaches and quintessential bathing boxes (a hidden gem) and a few minutes walk to shops and restaurants at Capel Sound. 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.
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. The sound of birdlife will sooth you for much of the day and watch the stars through the trees at night. 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.
Open the door and enter a beautiful entranceway with flagged floor and floor to ceiling windows. You don't see entrance halls like this very often. Light and bright it is the centre of the house that is designed around a central courtyard. 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 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.
Back out to the hallway and across to the other side of the H-Block 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 and both bedrooms have stainless steel overhead fans.
- Bedroom 1 - Queen Bed
- Bedroom 2 - Twin Singles (plus Trundle Bed)
A central bathroom with retro tiling in a calming blue with stainless steel finishes is perfect for the house.
