This holiday house has been in the same family since it was a vacant block of land in 1967. A labour of love, the original beach cottage has been expanded over time into a spacious, light-filled home. Situated in sought-after Lake View Drive, the home is opposite the lake and a leisurely flat stroll or bike ride to the IGA, newsagent, cafes, popular fish & chip shop and Bottle-o. The beach is a 1.2km walk away through Burrill Lake Lions Park with its fishing platforms, picnic areas and paths made for dog-walking.
View the stunning sunsets through the large living room windows or glimpse Pigeon House Mountain from the front porch. Listen to the laughter of kids/grandkids as they climb the mulberry tree or run through the sprinklers in summer in the private back yard. Or join them for picnics on the grass beneath the canopy of the majestic birch. At night, the easterly breezes carrying the sounds of waves crashing at Dolphin Point beach will lull you to sleep.
Double blinds (sunscreen and block out) cover all windows which were replaced a few years ago with smart glass. Multiple ceiling fans and reverse cycle air-conditioners provide year-round comfort. The house has two bathrooms in addition to a powder room off the main bedroom. The well-appointed kitchen has ample storage space with a walk-in pantry plus a bench seat for chatting while the chef whips up a masterpiece. The dining room also has built-in bench seats which can be used as extra bedding as one has been built to single bed dimensions.
The home is fully fenced with gardens designed to be water-conscious, low-maintenance and offer privacy. The side access is 3x30m, more than long enough for caravan, boats and cars. There is existing DA approval for a carport. In the back yard sits a spacious (3.5 x 9m) studio fully insulated with power and water. At the back of the studio is a separate storage shed. Both studio and shed are blank canvases to fit out how you please or leave as is for a roomy work shed or comfortable yoga/art space.
