3 Foam Street, OCEAN GROVE.

Brick on Foam... A Solid Family Home.
Deceptive from the front, this incredible Ocean Grove family home is larger than it appears. Solid, charming and full of fantastic features it's a home well worth your attention.

If the stark look and feel of rapidly-built contemporary houses -
with their paper-thin walls, polished concrete floors, boxy rooms and black/white stone gardens - is not for you, then you'll love this. Here you will find built-to-last construction, architectural character with substance and a warm, earthy ambience.

Some important history...

In architecture, Late 20th Century Modern (1965-1980) was a time during which the Environmental Design Movement came to prominence. The architects in this movement were reacting to the slick and artificial aspects of Modernist design and instead turned to natural construction materials. These included brick, slate tiling, exposed beams in cathedral ceilings and timber-framed doors that led to gardens of shrubs and trees. This home, at 3 Foam St Ocean Grove fits into this class.

Character, charm, a beautiful garden setting and sensational indoor and outdoor living spaces combine in this superb home to deliver a tranquil family oasis. The interior design highlights the use of timber, with lined cathedral ceilings, wall panelling and built in furniture radiating welcoming warmth throughout. Zoned living areas give parents and children formal and casual areas to choose from and an outdoor entertaining area is a delightful area to relax and is full of features.

The home's slate-tiled entry opens to a stately formal lounge enhanced by cathedral ceilings. Opposite this is a spectacular formal dining room with 6m high ceilings and windows. This impressive room (which could also be a study or additional bedroom) looks out to a small courtyard blessed with a glorious weeping cherry.

The master bedroom is situated towards the more formal end of the house providing it with privacy. It contains a large ensuite with a shower recess and separate spa bath along with a sizable walk in robe. The remaining accommodation (which share a second bathroom with similar features and separate WC) is located at the opposite end of the home. These bedrooms have garden outlooks, built-in-robes, a ceiling fan and an area for a student desk.

The casual lounge/family room is also at the rear of the home and is open to the kitchen. It has sufficient room for an informal meals area in addition to a breakfast bar at the kitchen bench. The slate-floored kitchen is original and contains a large walk-in pantry and dishwasher. It has bay-style windows that look onto the outdoor entertaining/dining area.

Set amongst beautiful decorative gardens and expanses of brick paving, the living areas enjoy a northern orientation opening to the spa and outdoor entertaining space. This is a beautiful outdoor area which it is covered by an incredible ornamental grapevine allowing the winter sun and warmth in while providing shade in summer. This private area boasts a sizable built-in and remodelled spa (with brand new auto-heater) which is undercover and surrounded by a small deck.

This brilliant family residence also features: an auto lock-up double garage; a large laundry/storage room with external access; a cocktail bar; a Daikin split-system air-conditioner; ducted gas central heating; an additional wall-mounted gas space heater; new window furnishings; and landscaped gardens surrounding the home with gates on either side. The elevated setting, quiet street, sunset views, proximity to the beaches, golf clubs, shops and schools are an added bonus.
