Oh, The Possibilities!
The current owners of this circa-1945 3 bedroom 1 bathroom beach shack have decided to move on to pastures new and build their "forever" family home nearby, leaving you to potentially do exactly the same thing - but only replacing the existing dwelling and taking full advantage of the elevated 503sqm (approx.) Green Title block it so comfortably sits on, boasting a generous 18.8m street frontage, an enviable position on the protected side of the hill and stunning future views, along with magical morning sunrises, overlooking the sprawling Charles Riley Memorial Reserve playing fields.
The original character property has been delightfully extended and updated over the many years since it was first constructed by returning local soldiers post-World War II. There is evidently plenty of scope to renovate it further and add some of your own personal touches throughout, while the house is more than solid enough to either live in it or rent it out "as is" before planning your next move - and more than likely the proposed layout of your new dream abode.
An enclosed front verandah deck with a burning potbelly fireplace (ideal for when those chilly winter months eventually creep up on us) and caf blinds doubles as a welcoming entry, whilst also providing access to both the third bedroom and a study/home office. Soaring high ceilings, beautiful Jarrah wooden floorboards and charming decorative cornices combine to ensure that the features of yesteryear remain nestled within the warmth of a splendid lounge room that works well as either a formal or casual living space and lies within inches of a huge master bedroom with very-similar attributes, linking through to a large carpeted walk-in dressing room - or nursery - comprising of built-in wardrobes and split-system air-conditioning for good measure.
Separating a contemporary bathroom and a functional semi-open laundry from the light and bright second bedroom is a versatile central hub of an open-plan family, dining and kitchen area that can be set up any which way you want, before spilling outside to the rear via double doors and enjoying the total privacy and tranquillity provided to you by a sunken entertaining alfresco - hidden away from the coastal elements and out of sight of your neighbours. There is an abundance of storage both inside and out, plus enough driveway parking space for at least two cars - maybe three.
