40 Ozone Road Barwon Heads, VicThis is a charming, iconic, older style Barwon Heads family holiday home smack-bang in the centre of Barwon Heads. The home is set on a deep block among a lovingly maintained garden and offers great POTENTIAL. That’s potential in ALL CAPS.

There are hydrangeas in the front and a Hills Hoist out back. Treasured memories of days gone by, sunny holidays and fun times emanate from this pleasing, original home.

Classic fibro beach houses like this are the iconic Australian holiday home and are fast becoming rare and in-demand – especially those with ‘shed’ and ‘butterfly’ style roofs. They hold retro appeal and display many characteristics of Modernist design such as open-plan living areas, large windows and modest proportions. According to one website they have become popular among creative types who partake in unofficial contests to see who can do the best fibro retro-kitsch or sophisticated designer makeover.

Undeniably, its other major feature is its sensational location. It is positioned in the sought-after ‘old’ precinct of Barwon Heads and is very central to all of Barwon Heads’ many attractions. For example, you are 400m to the primary school and village centre, 500m to fifty-four acres of recreational parkland, 550m to the Barwon Heads Golf Club, 600m to the river and a little over 1 km to the surf beach. Whether holidaying or living here you are close to all the action but far enough from the main street to enjoy peace and quiet.

Behind the quaint rectangular frontage of this vintage beach house the residence comprises of three bedrooms – two with pioneering built in robes; an original central bathroom with bath; a separate WC; a comfy open-plan lounge from which double glass doors lead to a sunroom; and an original utilitarian kitchen. Original floorboards lie beneath and the lounge also has heating and a split system air conditioner.

There is plenty of driveway for off-street parking and also a large lock-up garage with a workshop area in the rear garden. Luxuriating trees line the well-tended back garden and there is plenty of space for backyard cricket, some entertaining or perhaps an extension to the original home. And that is where the potential comes in: This home is from the era that gave modern Barwon Heads its beginnings. Now it provides potential for your future.
