Home Sweet Home
Set between the Barwon River and the Blue Waters Lake, this original weatherboard home presents a chance for a young family or investor to enter the lucrative coastal market of Ocean Grove. This is a casual home, well suited to a laid-back beach lifestyle. It is in excellent condition with neat and tidy wet areas, fabulous storage and a westerly aspect that fills the living spaces with beautiful afternoon sunshine. The full-length verandah links with ease to the interior and it is shaped to offer an alfresco setting for entertaining. The verandah has great appeal for an extension of the deck into the garden, expanding the footprint of the house. The new owners can begin with comfortable living while planning the next chapter of this property. This interim will be enjoyed with three generously proportioned bedrooms, including an ensuite master and the main bathroom. The kitchen and dining are placed together and flow through to the inviting living room. This relaxing L-shaped room is a key element to the floorplan. It is very spacious, and with furniture grouping clever zoning can be designed while retaining the openness. On the northern elevation there is also scope to reach the deck to the adjacent wall and create an alluring indoor-outdoor nook. Climate comfort will be snug with the solid fuel heater, and warmer days will make use of the split air-con. The garden is very simple and easy to maintain, with the established natives shielding the house from the street, and parking is roomy under the oversized double carport. The locale is zoned for the renowned Ocean Grove Primary School, and a quick drive will take you to the Old Grove village shops. Your morning coffee will be a cinch with rear access to Groove cafe at the end of the street. Then your daily walk can be a choice along the river’s edge or around the lake, it really is a brilliant spot. If you are looking for an affordable breath of fresh air on the Coast - this is it!
