Elegance on The Avenue - only minutes walk to the beach16 The Avenue, Mccrae
Built in 1925 this unique home has been sympathetically updated by the current owners in keeping with the period style to provide all modern comforts while still retaining many delightful original features, including a wonderful full-length veranda under the eaves delivering tranquil views over the front garden.
Inside a spacious and versatile floorplan over 2 levels is ideal for the larger family or guests, with a terrific self-contained area upstairs perfect as a kids or in-laws' zone or even B&B accommodation, featuring a kitchenette, 2 large robed bedrooms, bathroom and 'rotunda'-shaped lounge/rumpus.
Downstairs a sensational main living/family room has been fully renovated with a French country-style kitchen boasting an imported 'Lecanche' Aga stove, timber benchtops, butler's sink and large walk-in pantry, with gorgeous Blackbutt floorboards and exposed beams adding to the rustic character.
The large master suite, situated at the front of the house, enjoys direct views of the McCrae lighthouse and is complemented by an open fireplace, large period-style ensuite complete with clawbath, and adjacent sunroom.
Also downstairs finds a study (or sitting room) and 2nd bedroom with ensuite.
Gardeners will fall in love with the huge veggie beds at the back of the house, surrounded by an array of espaliered fruit trees including pears, nectarines, plums, apples and figs, a colourful cottage-style garden around the veranda and low-maintenance indigenous natives at the front of the property.
Extra features include a large 3-car garage + workshop, laundry, storage room, gas hydronic heating, solar panels, grey water system, 2,000L + 5,000L water tanks, and an enclosed cat run off the sunroom.
Rarely do properties with this much character come to market and coupled with a highly sought-after location so close to the beach, this is an opportunity not to be missed.
