The perfect beach house *
Did you have an idea in mind for your perfect beach house on the Mornington Peninsula, so close to the beach you can hear the waves breaking at night and smell the sea air on the deck in summer?
Plenty of room for your family, extended family and friends?

Welcome to Sandy Shores!
Immaculately presented, this beach house is only 500 metres walk to the Rye Ocean Beach and the Mornington Peninsula National Park. This fully fenced large leafy green block is a secluded coastal haven. Grab your surfboard and stroll up the road to the surf beach.
You will need to walk up a number of steps to the front entrance (it's not for the faint-hearted or infirm!) and the front deck as the house is situated high on a sand dune. However, the front garden has a beautiful gazebo with chairs around a firepit, great at any time of the year.
The beach retreat is set on three levels and comprises of six bedrooms (yep we said six), 3 bathrooms and 2 living areas.
Walk into the property on the upper level from the front deck with outdoor entertaining and BBQ and you will appreciate the attention to detail.
