Historic seaside home a family wonderland
WHEN it comes to location, a buyer would be hard-pressed to find a more impressive spot than right by the sand at Kingston Beach.
This family-sized house is an absolute beauty.
As well as incredible water views, it offers generous living zones, a sunny and open-plan kitchen/dining area and a separate lounge with craftsman-built bi-fold doors that lead to a timber deck.
The luxury of a large, stylish spa bath is another ground-floor highlight.
There is a bedroom on this level that, if not needed for sleeping, could be used as an office or studio with its own entry point.
Head upstairs and three more large bedrooms will be revealed, as well as a handy bathroom with a delightful porthole window.
A reverse-cycle heat pump is located in the family living area. Accompanied by a toasty wood heater, there is also a pellet fire that warms the formal lounge, allowing the heat to rise to the upstairs bedrooms.
The property offers loads of storage under the stairs, and a large laundry.
The property dates back to the 1880s.
The stunning ceiling roses, wide skirting boards, original timber panel doors, Baltic polished floorboards and ornate fireplaces surrounded by mantelpieces create a glimpse of yesteryear and a warm ambience that enhances the overall character and appeal of this family home.
Set on level, low-maintenance grounds, the gardens feature several raised garden beds. There is also a double-sized shed or workshop.
The Kingston Beach Golf and yacht club, adult playground and Browns River will give the next owner of this property plenty of things to explore.
Not enough can be said about the enviable location that affords the homeowner glistening water views from its virtual waterfront position — only the esplanade is between it and the beach. Homes in this street tend to be tightly held.
In the 12 months to the end of July, CoreLogic recorded 35 house sales in Kingston Beach. In that period the suburbs’s average time to sell a house was 15 days.
Listed with Fall Real Estate, No.35 Osborne Esplanade, Kingston Beach, is priced between $1.2 million and $1.5 million.
