Beachy Beacy

THERE’S a beachy feel to this Beaconsfield home. 

Maybe it’s the pale blues and whites on the roof, gazebo and facade, or the large deck out the front, or maybe a combination of all of the above.

But there’s definitely a relaxed ocean vibe as you walk up the double driveway to this three bedroom two bathroom abode.

The north-facing deck out the front is huge and there’s a large setback from the street, so it’s a great spot to hang out with family and friends or to chill on your own with a book and glass of vino.

There’s a nice front garden with a mix of succulents, bushes and mature fruit trees, creating a lush backdrop to your afternoon siesta.

The inside lives up to the initial promise with jarrah floorboards, patterned ceilings and plenty of natural light flooding through the timber hopper windows.

The open plan living/dining/kitchen area is bright and spacious with lots of room for the family to relax and enjoy each other’s company.

There’s two living areas with a couch in the lounge and another beside the dining area, giving you flexibility as the kids get older. 

The kitchen is absolutely huge with masses of storage space. The natural wood-style fascia on the cupboards and drawers might not be to everyone’s taste, but they can easily be replaced for a more contemporary feel.

More importantly you have heaps of space and lots of light from the window above the wide long benchtop.

All three bedrooms are bright and airy with ceiling fans. There are two bathrooms nearby, ensuring you will never have to queue for the toilet again.

There’s plenty of storage in this home including a massive utility room and a big laundry.

You have a choice of two alfresco dining areas with another large undercover deck out the back.

It overlooks a low-maintenance and stylish  courtyard with a pergola and extra seating off to the side.

It’s a pleasant spot to socialise with family and friends.

Built in the mid-1960s, the house is sold “as is” and there’s a few bits and bobs that will need updating like the decor in one of the bathrooms and the old-school gas fire in the lounge.

But the vast majority of the home looks gorgeous with a contemporary feel.

Situated on a slightly elevated 470sqm survey strata block on Martha Street, with little through traffic, this home has double car parking and it’s a short walk to all the cafes, shops and restaurants on South Terrace and come summer, South Beach.
