Hidden down a quiet coastal road within footsteps of Shoreham Beach, this long-held and surprisingly spacious four-bedroom beach house harmoniously melds timeless mid-century design with laidback coastal living in one of the Mornington Peninsula’s favourite beachside pockets.
Beyond a meandering garden trail and canopy of trees, the brick-veneered hideaway sits amid tranquil gardens with a variety of fruit trees and shaded alcoves to dine outdoors or relax with a G&T after the beach on balmy afternoons.
Defined by lofty ceilings, hardwood flooring, dado panelling and picture rails indicative of the era, the interior reveals an expansive open-concept living area with a toasty lounge with fireplace and built-in padded window bench, sizeable dining area and a sensational entertainer’s zone with an original 1950s cocktail bar and ample room for a billiards table.
The well-appointed kitchen is fitted with a stainless-steel Fisher & Paykel oven, Bosch dishwasher, a glass ceramic cooktop and timeless woodgrain cabinetry, while sliding glass doors open to a vast barbecue deck overlooking the enchanting gardens, providing a heavenly setting to host friends backdropped by the tussle of the trees, gently crash of the surf and birdsong.
The floorplan boasts two bathrooms and oversized bedrooms, one of which through double doors could easily be utilised as a second living area or playroom for the kids in this flexible floorplan, which also offers ample under-house storage for surfboards and beach toys.
