Appealing Colonial Character in Sought after River Location
Close to the river and impressively located on one of Barwon Heads’ most sought-after streets, this delightful 3-bedroom family home ticks all the boxes. Built in 1967, the home displays some appealing colonial character and is enhanced by a lovely established garden (back and front) that boasts some interesting trees - including a Florida Fiddlewood, a Lemon-scented Myrtle and a spectacular Floribunda Crabapple. The home’s handsome east-facing front has a verandah with climbing Wisteria, and timber shutters on all the windows. Beyond the kitchen, the dining choices begin. There’s a cosy formal dining room which then leads through double glass doors to a huge, gable-roofed, casual dining annexe - perfect for long, lazy lunches or extended evening dinners. A central ceiling fan and sliding screen doors to catch the sea breezes keep things cool in the warmer months. There’s a paved courtyard on one side and a barbecue/garden area on the other. The master bedroom, with views of the garden, has built-in robes and a ceiling fan, plus an ensuite with walk-in shower, period bath and basin, heated towel rail and separate WC. The two other bedrooms share a second bathroom, and a second WC. There’s also a laundry, a study/office with plenty of desk space and built-in bookshelves. Incorporated into the double carport/garage/man-cave area is a small bungalow, or possible rumpus room. An invigorating walk will take you to parks, sporting facilities, the river, and the main street’s cafes and shops. Or it’s just a couple of minutes by car. This welcoming home offers a wonderful coastal lifestyle for a lucky family who’ll feel like they’re on holidays - 365 days a year.
