2/73-75 Dare Street Ocean Grove, VicThe Starland Vocal Band had great success with their suggestive song ‘Afternoon Delight’ after it reached number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 and picked up a Grammy Award in 1976/77.

Fast-forward to 2012 and Afternoon Delight lives on. It resides here at Unit 2, number 73-75 Dare Street, Ocean Grove.

Or should that be Ocean Groove? (It’s something of a beach-pad.)

Here is a fantastic unit with sensational ocean, river and Barwon Heads views only metres from Ocean Grove’s centre and walkable distance to the main beach. As the afternoon sun sets across the Heads, take it all in through a floor-to-ceiling window in the unit’s feature lounge. These are million dollar views.

The street number 73-75 might also represent the years of the late 20th century during which the unit was fitted out. It is unabashedly 70’s in style: perhaps a little kitsch in a collectible way; however its upkeep has been exemplary and its condition is excellent.

Being situated so close to the main street of Ocean Grove the off-street parking is a handy feature of the home. Parking is beneath the main residence in a lock-up garage from which the home can be accessed from the rear door. Alternatively, exposed-pebble steps lead from the front of the house to a raised balcony facing west towards the setting sun and the Barwon Bluff. From here, pause a few minutes to admire the view, then enter through the front door into the small entrance hall that leads to the respectably sized main living room.

The air-conditioned living/dining room is made to feel spacious by a pale exposed-brick feature wall and the aforementioned floor-to-ceiling picture window. The kitchen, a separate room adjacent to the lounge, is as-new – (literally) – true to the original version – complete with dishwasher, wall-mounted oven and tiled splashback.

Via a sky-lit hallway, two bedrooms are situated towards the rear of the home, both with in-built robes and south-west facing windows. Beyond these is a compartmentalized bathroom area with separate small rooms for a bathroom, shower area and WC. At the end of the hall is a laundry area and rear door leading down a few stairs to a quaint, protected garden.

The bottom line is this centrally-heated unit is a fantastic two bedroom apartment in the heart of Ocean Grove with great views and walkable distance to the main beach. We suggest you consider some afternoon delight yourself.
