Charming ‘70s beach house with abundant garden
Tucked discreetly away behind an assortment of trees and shrubs, this classic, ‘70s, O’Dowd-built beach house is the ideal holiday getaway. A driveway delivers you to a double carport and paved courtyard, with the east/west home displaying a full-length, north-facing verandah that takes advantage of the coastal sunshine. Entry is to a bright open-plan family/dining/kitchen area featuring a timber ceiling with exposed beams, cork floor tiles and an air-conditioner. The kitchen has a servery bench, a Belling double electric oven with four hotplates, and a generous pantry. Two bedrooms both have built-in robes, and one has two built-in bunks. Next to the laundry, the neat bathroom has a shower and vanity, and a separate WC. At the eastern end, the master bedroom enjoys a delightful view of the back garden, and ensuite access to the bathroom. Adjacent is the main sitting room with a gas pot-belly heater and a split system for year-round comfort - plus direct access to the paved verandah. The large rear garden has numerous new and mature trees, fruit trees, mature shrubs, and a garden shed - and is an ideal spot for outdoor dining and entertaining. Situated on the edge of “Old Lonsdale”, you can choose to walk or drive to the front beach and the shopping centre. While the home and garden are in fine condition, there is also excellent scope for renovation or extension. Or alternatively, with smart design and planning, redevelopment could take advantage of a great block with a delightful established garden STCA.
