House Buy – $590,000

Set high on the escarpment in Surfside, and offering commanding panoramic coastline views over Bass Strait, Point Lonsdale and Queenscliff, Furness is a proud original in Capella Road. Built by a ship builder with a passion for timber, this well-constructed split-level home has a peaceful aura, with a welcoming interior warmed by a variety of reclaimed, eclectic and rare timber features.
Entry is into the middle level, via timber stairs to a tiled entry porch. The entrance hall has a historic and romantic feel, with curved wooden ceiling and brick feature wall. Two bedrooms (one with large built-in robes), a toilet and bathroom bud off the entrance hall. The bathroom has seafaring appeal and offers; shower with glass screen over a hip bath, full size bath and an aged Oregon vanity. Polished timber stairs lead up and down.
On the upper level, its all about the views. The expansive lounge/dining space boasts cathedral ceilings and is wrapped in glass to the south and east, maximising the impact of the ocean surrounds. Point out Mount Martha and Cape Schanck to friends and family, and be entertained by ships navigating the Rip. Double French doors open to a spectacular deck that extends the length of the south and east faade, capturing cool southerlies and enabling seamless indoor/outdoor entertaining. Reverse cycle AC, gas heater and a ceiling fan control the climate. The large kitchen is suitable for grand scale catering. Abundant cupboard, draw and bench space insures order. A bright skylight and sliding door to the deck enhance the liveability. The servery to the living/dining space is practical in function and form, but most importantly, indulges the chef in the breathtaking east facing ocean vistas. Appliances include gas oven with cooktop and dishwasher. A versatile third room, currently used as an office/sitting room, could function well as a day nursery, playroom or fourth bedroom.
The lower level houses a terrific rumpus space with sea glimpses and garden views through French doors to a backyard patio. Connecting steps to the carport make this is an ideal teenage retreat, with potential for indoor/outdoor entertaining removed from the adult living zone upstairs. A spacious bedroom, combined wet area (with laundry, shower and toilet), cellar and garage access complete this floor. The lower level is heated by a powerful gas Rinnai heater which has the potential to heat the whole home.
The front and rear gardens are well maintained and supported by tank water irrigation. The garden shed has power and makes a fantastic workshop. There is a single carport, single garage with remote access, paved driveway providing off street parking for three cars, and a double parking bay behind high gates on the front fence line.
Breathtaking views, space and history – what more could you want?
