2A Bell Street Barwon Heads, VicThey sure don’t make them like they used to! Don’t miss the perfect renovation, in the perfect sea-change location. This enchanting 1960’s brick home has been cleverly renovated to offer a flexible, up to four bedroom, two bathroom floor-plan graced with every glorious period detail….and streamlined contemporary design.

Set on an enormous 730m2 corner block with dual access to the prized Ewing Blythe Drive and Bell Street, this beachside home is only a short stroll to the wonderful river, beaches, shops and restaurants that Barwon Heads is renowned for.

The kitchen is set overlooking the rear garden and has a sweet ’60s retro feel in a fresh white and aqua palette, rounded, laminex countertops and upright oven. A wide hutch opens to the adjacent dining room, so, tie your frilly apron strings, set up the fondue and throw yourself a cocktail party! Or just enjoy it in 2012 style instead!

Retro mashed with modern functionality wins again in the two bathrooms with charming upright sinks and luxurious colours. There are three double-sized bedrooms, the main with an elevated, tranquil view over the front garden.

There is plenty of living space for everyone to spread out and enjoy themselves. A sun-room at the rear opens through French doors to a large vestibule. There is a long balcony at the front bordering the delightful lounge area. The centrepiece of this room is the impressive stone fireplace and a huge floor-to-ceiling window celebrates the home’s excellent location. Need to get away from the rabble to read that page turner!! A bright sitting room with wide views is also adjacent to the lounge. This room could easily convert to a fourth bedroom.

The home is immaculately maintained with original polished floor boards throughout, oodles of storage, warmed by ducted heating, lit with down-lights and cooled with reverse-cycle air-conditioning. What more could you want, you may ask!! Well! Under the house is a veritable treasure trove of extra delights not often found. Two huge storage areas (one ideal for cellaring and with a winch to transport firewood to the wood box in the lounge upstairs), a large laundry, toilet and shower (great for sandy beach goers), carpeted rumpus room/guest bedroom and a big single lock-up-garage. The generously sized front garden with feature stone walling and majestic gums provides ample set-back from the road to give the home a secluded atmosphere.

It needs to be said: location, location, location! This home is special.
