2 TITLES, 2 HOMESall on offer to be sold as a whole!
Set in a picture-perfect locale, this substantial estate is a tale of two beautiful residences ideally positioned for a privileged seaside lifestyle and comfortable living. Together, they offer a rare opportunity on the market for a family to enjoy private moments of retreat and public areas of entertainment on the superb 3.5-acre (approx.) grounds, spread across two titles. At the heart of both residences are the breathtaking ocean views, an uninterrupted panorama of deep blue lapping waves dotted by white surf breaks, far across the Bass Strait horizon. Timber-lined walls and ceilings, original Victorian period details, and a wraparound verandah, add a relaxed warmth and cosiness to the main residence, which houses four bedrooms, formal and informal living zones, a charming kitchen and a billiards room. Close by, yet retaining its own privacy, the newer, two-storey guesthouse, with three bedrooms, has an alluring contemporary crispness, which opens out to the thoughtfully landscaped gardens and ocean vista beyond. Inviting as the interior spaces are, the star attractions - all, too, with expansive ocean views - are outside. A lawn tennis court, fringed by manicured hedges and striking succulents, is great for practising your serve; while a swimming pool is cut out for summer fun. A Victorian-style folly is a perfect vantage point to both these spots, as it steps down to a peaceful, picturesque ornamental lake. Driving to Melbourne, over two hours' away, will be hugely enjoyable on the scenic Great Ocean Road, and Apollo Bay township amenities are even nearer at a mere 10 kilometres away. But with the sun glinting on the beckoning surf just across the road, there's plenty to lure the resident back home soon.
