Absolute Water Frontage, Privacy and Luxury
“Buckaginga” is something very rare, and very special. A magnificent home on a huge block, 1391sqm approx., in a prime position. With a nod to the Cape Cod style of architecture, this superb two-storey residence offers privacy, luxury and the ultimate coastal prize - absolute water frontage. Through tall double gates, the driveway leads to a remote-controlled double garage and a covered portico at the front door. Entry delivers an unexpected shot of adrenalin, as the view down the central, polished, timber-floor passage draws you through the lounge room and past the bay-window dining alcove, to the breathtaking panorama of the Barwon River beyond. Few homes anywhere on the Peninsula provide such spectacular impact. From the spacious entry lobby, an office sits on the northern side, while a laundry and separate powder room occupy the other. Along the passage, huge glass panels reveal a north-facing deck with a slatted pergola overhead - the perfect destination for outdoor dining and entertainment. Two large bedrooms with ceiling fans share a delightful bathroom featuring twin basins, a frameless glass shower, a heated towel rail, and a WC. One of the bedrooms opens through double doors to an enclosed deck with river views. The magnificent open-plan lounge/dining/kitchen area is the focus of this enviable lifestyle experience, with high ceilings, finely-crafted cabinetry, an open fireplace, and multiple windows embracing the unparalleled river view. The brilliant kitchen offers caesarstone benches, a Falcon gas cooker with twin ovens and a five-burner top, an Asko dishwasher, and a large walk-in pantry. Upstairs, there’s a central sitting room with a split system, two more bedrooms with ceiling fans, and a generous bathroom with bath/shower and vanity, and a separate WC. The east-facing river frontage has a boat ramp, private moorings and a jetty, while elsewhere there’s an open-sided boatshed, and a substantial enclosure that’s currently home to multiple vegetable garden beds and a clutch of chickens. Additional extras include hydronic heating, a 20,000 litre tank, and 2 fig trees. This is Barwon Heads living at its very best, so don’t miss this golden opportunity to inspect.
