A beachfront escape just 15-minutes from the CBD
THE chance to buy a house in this little stretch of waterfront at Howrah is a rarity.
This property is positioned just beyond the bustling section of Howrah Beach. From No.27 on around to Howrah Point there is barely a handful of houses on the water side of the street. And how often do they hit the market? A couple changed hands in 2014, a super-rare block sold in 2015, and a couple more houses were sold in the mid-1990s. That’s it.
Set upon the shore, No.31 is home to a fantastic 1960s-built weatherboard house that has the relaxed look of a beach getaway outside with modern luxuries inside.
The location is outstanding, just a hop, skip and a jump from the water in summertime or for a leisurely stroll on the sand year-round.
A position such as this affords the owner uninterrupted views across the water to the mountain and city.
It is also close to local shops and eateries.
Upstairs, the home’s floor plan offers an expansive living and dining room.
From the kitchen the family chef will be able to gaze out at the water while cooking up a storm. And when it’s time to feast, the living zone opens to a spacious deck that will clearly be the No.1 place to be at any time of year.
Also on this level, there are two bedrooms — one with built-in wardrobes — plus a study nook, a spacious bathroom with a tub and a shower, plus a separate toilet.
A large third bedroom is located downstairs and boasts an open-plan ensuite.
The laundry, a storage/workshop space and a balcony are also on this level.
An impressive feature that sits just above the water level is the purpose-built entertaining area with a bar, and a storage shed for water sports and barbecue equipment.
Covered by a shade sail for those balmy summer days, this is an absolute must-see for those who dream of entertaining friends or family by the water.
There is off-street parking for two vehicles.
