Natural Light and Expansive Living in Barwon Heads
Nestled between ancient Moonahs on the banks of the Barwon River, this stylish family home is full of texture and light, with zoned living spaces and a natural feel complemented by the surrounding native bushland. Making the most of its stunning location, this property offers plentiful living areas and room for family and friends.
The front entrance opens to the first of four living areas and takes in glorious views of the river. Ambiance and warmth are instantaneous thanks to the stone lined open fire place and the large windows which bring the landscape and gentle sunlight in. Guests could be accommodated along the hallway where two bedrooms share a central bathroom that is stylish and luxurious. On the upper level, family accommodation with a rumpus area, balcony and bathroom offers plenty of options for teenage living and on the top floor, the elegant master retreat includes a spacious walk in robe and beautifully appointed ensuite.
Downstairs, expansive open plan living takes in soaring rooflines and natural light, floor to ceiling windows and endless views to the gorgeous garden and evening sunsets. Centred around an incredible reclaimed timber kitchen island, Miele appliances including an induction cooktop and integrated dishwasher are set against a practical stainless steel preparation bench. Featuring entry to the DLUG, the butler’s pantry is a fantastic ‘backstage’ space ideal for storage and can be neatly closed off via a sliding door. Two versatile living spaces open to the garden and sliding doors connect the dining area to the covered courtyard that in turn, overlooks a solar heated 20m lap pool. With a minimalist coastal garden and cooling breeze off the river, summers here are idyllic.
Nothing has been overlooked in this stylish family residence that includes a plethora of storage, oversized double lock up garage, built in surround sound, hydronic underfloor and panel heating (and cooling), laundry chute and intercom system. Located in a secluded part of Barwon Heads, you’ll feel the serenity even though village life is a stone's throw away. Whether it’s for holidays or for a permanent life on the Bellarine, however you use this house, you’ll feel at home.
