5 Punt Road Barwon Heads, VicThe romance and fun-times associated with a seaside holiday are elegantly captured in this gorgeous Barwon Heads family home. It’s a pure, honest-to-goodness, original beach house with a becoming extension designed to bring all your family and friends together and to share the best of times. There are plenty of bedrooms for everyone so send out the invites, pack your beachy things, buckle-up and come on down.

Sunny days, warm breezes and glorious beaches: they’re what Barwon Heads is renowned for in the summer. But for year-round residents and regular all-season visitors there are plenty of other reasons to love Barwon Heads.

This property is charming, with its wide frontage, cottage-looks, off-white weatherboards, picket fence and timber verandah there is immediate street appeal.

In recent times the home’s original floorplan has been extended. The structure of the original weatherboard home has been kept and a rear addition has substantially increased the living area and added two additional bedrooms (to the front three) and a second, central bathroom. This works well, especially for those with an attraction to original features who also enjoy the ease of a modern lifestyle.

Much of the original cottage has been retained in the renovation which adds to the appeal and character of the home. Bygone furnishings such as a glorious fire surround and an original oven (there is also a new Bosch version) remain in the kitchen, while part of the home’s original exterior creates the wall between the kitchen servery and the living room.

From the entrance it is clear the current owners have wanted to retain the important original features while bringing the home up to date. From a new timber front verandah you’ll step through a leadlight front door onto original but recently polished floorboards. Meanwhile, new louvre windows in the kitchen and bathroom modernise the home but are in keeping with its history.

The fully renovated kitchen in the centre of the home opens to the spacious communal dining and living area. This, in turn, opens through French doors onto a covered verandah, a paved entertaining area and an established rear garden with espaliered apple and plum trees. It completes the cute cottage feel.

The home also features: a sixth bedroom or study; the option of gas heating in the lounge; split-system air conditioning in the living area; a large garden shed; a chicken run; OSP and a lock-up garage with drive-through access to the rear garden.

There are many appealing elements of this house. But at the end of the day – (and at breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, aprEs-beach or beside the bbq) – it’s a home that brings people together.
