Charming weatherboard beach cottage c 1915
*Completely secure and private from the road, this c1915 weatherboard home exudes the character of this era in abundance. Charming, comfortable and relaxed, it is located in an enviable position - the aptly named Crown Road.
*Being a popular area, an advantage of the location of this home is the secure entry through the gated driveway through to off-street parking. The biggest decision you'll have to make is which beach to take the five minute walk to - Queenscliff or Freshwater.
*As is typical of homes of this era, the bedrooms are spacious with many of the traditional features on show. Stained glass windows, decorative ceilings and picture rails add to the ambience. Inside the home a more formal lounge area is complemented by a working fireplace. Step through to the large eat-in kitchen area off the lounge area an easy flow between the two rooms.
*The wonderful surprise of this home is the garden. The centerpiece is the delightfully named Cheese tree - located in the centre of the yard as was the practice of homes of this era. In more recent times, the gardens surrounding this have been lovingly established such that the back yard with its multi-tiered terraces is a serene and private oasis.
*Follow the path through the garden down to the new studio located at the rear. Self contained with modern and contemporary inclusions, the studio is currently used as a separate office and extra accommodation when needed. The architect designed structure is striking.
*This home offers an abundance of character and access to relaxed beachside living. There are existing DA approved plans to extend and create a striking contemporary home in the design of the existing studio. The choice is yours - and it's a nice one to have - much like which beach to go to today!
