4 Richard Avenue Ocean Grove, VicRealize your Ocean Grove dreams in this newly renovated, classic beach house. The residence positively shines after a delightful refurbishment has refreshed the entire home and let the light in.

All the hard work has been done and now it’s time for this home to be enjoyed. If you’re looking for a new start in Ocean Grove and are busy at work or with your children, then this is the perfect option. Nothing needs to be done.

The house is situated in a super-quiet pocket of ‘old’ Ocean Grove very near the golf course and the river’s edge. This is an established precinct of the village where the best of Ocean Grove’s beach and recreational lifestyle is on your doorstep, while traffic, summer crowds, commercial areas and housing estates are elsewhere. Meanwhile, shops, schools and parks are never far away.

Natural light bathes all rooms which include two living areas and four sizable bedrooms. Much of this light is thanks to the addition of new French doors that lead from the lounge/dining area to a brand new, elevated deck that has been added onto the rear of the home. These changes have brightened the home, extended the living area, opened the garden to the household and allowed parents to supervise kids in the play area more easily. It’s a great lifestyle modernisation that has already been done for you.

There are many more modern improvements. New carpets have recently been laid in the lounge and all bedrooms. The kitchen, dining, hallway and entrance have also had new floors. New downlights have been fitted, fresh blinds hung and a reverse-cycle split system air-conditioner installed. The open-plan kitchen living area has also been furnished with a new slimline Braemar wall furnace.

This open-plan area is currently used as kitchen/family room. It’s a well-sized, friendly room with access to a side verandah via a sliding window and a breakfast bar at the new kitchen bench. The kitchen itself is completely new, efficiently designed and features new appliances including a double oven and dishwasher.

All four bedrooms are surprisingly large and are naturally lit thanks to large windows. These windows also help with the homes cross ventilation in the warmer months. The master bedroom has its own ensuite with a new vanity, basin and shower as well as an unexpectedly spacious walk-in-robe. The remaining three bedrooms have built-in-robes and share a central bathroom off the hall. It has a separate WC. There is also a family-sized laundry with external access.

Near the side entrance to the home is the lushly carpeted lounge. It also contains a small room originally designed as a bar that a family may now use as a compact study or computer room. A dining area sits adjacent to the lounge and looks out to the new sunny deck. Swing open the doors and the home is immediately extended to the outside… where a well-maintained bright and inspiring, green garden meets your eyes. (There is also a double car port on the home’s side and a garden shed).

This home has much to offer in terms of its renovation and features but it also has a cute, homely and beachy feel which is most appealing. Perhaps this comes from the cottage-like wood-panelled dado that runs along many of its walls. Or maybe it’s how the home’s simplicity works so well; or is it the light; or the beautiful tree in the back garden!! Whatever it is, it’s very refreshing.
