This charming 4-bedroom home sits in a wide and graceful street that transects Queenscliff’s historic town centre from bay to beach. The convenient position, just 1 block from Hesse Street and a short stroll from the bay, beach and impressive harbour, is a major lifestyle asset!
Boasting a quintessential Queenscliff vintage facade, the rear has been transformed to deliver a light-filled open plan sought-after today. The eras meld perfectly – the product a vibrant home with contemporary kitchen, wet areas and indoor-outdoor living, and characterful, romantic bedrooms.
Baltic floors, tall ceilings and the wide central hallway are charming on entry. The traditional 4-room arrangement in the original footprint has been modified to include a walk-through robe and sleek en suite to the master bedroom. A powder room and bathroom, each presented with 5-star style, are handy to the 2 queen-sized bedrooms across the hall.
Further in, the new design flows seamlessly to the north. Polished concrete floors and wide banks of glazing ensure a sleek modern aesthetic filled with natural light. Open plan living, dining and a sundrenched entertaining deck align end to end. Living boasts surround sound and a built-in gas log fire flanked by inset shelving. A versatile 4th bedroom, office or play space buds off the living area, privatised by bi-fold doors. An internal deck and courtyard provide a protected outdoor nook for quiet contemplation. Dining is proportioned for a family. A split system AC assists comfort throughout.
The streamlined kitchen boasts quality touches including Caesarstone benches, a suite of Miele cooking appliances and F&P dishwasher. The bulk of the catering workspace is cleverly concealed in the butler’s pantry, which also houses a Euro-style laundry.
A synthetic lawn adjoins the entertaining deck providing a private space for sunworshipper’s and putting practise. Rear laneway access makes garden maintenance a breeze. Solar hot water.
This exceptional home presents as a gorgeous downsize for those expecting house guests, or a high-end holiday retreat with demonstrated rental potential.
