As Anglesea hots up for the holiday season, we are seeing some fantastic properties coming to market, with Great Ocean Road Real Estate listing a wonderful home that reflects what relaxing beach life is all about.
This modernist style home at 27 Holmwood Avenue is a creative blend of the existing 1950s property with an elaborate new extension.
Jane Millar Architects has designed and overseen the project to completion and the result is a truly unique and special coastal property that received 1,745 Instagram hits in one day when featured by @modernistaustralia.
Selling agent Kellie Saddington said the impressive property has had an incredible response due to the following that modernist homes receive.
“We had more than 100 people through the property in the first weekend of open for inspections, whilst I understand they are not all buyers, it’s wonderful to see such enthusiasm and support for the architecture.
“Jane Millar has perfected the balance of retaining the integrity of the existing 1950s home and complimenting it with a contemporary renovation and extension.
“This home certainly offers buyers the opportunity to move in and enjoy it straight away, with everything so close there is no doubt the location is also a huge factor in the interest level and popularity we have had to date.”
The home boasts four bedrooms, including master with ensuite and second bathroom, separate toilets, new entry and stair connecting the two distinct living areas to the north-facing deck, stone terrace, and garden areas.
A double carport, laundry and store are located under the living and dining addition at lower ground level to minimise visual impact as well as to provide greater opportunities for landscaping.
A refurbished kitchen sits in the driving seat of this home, with views to the north facing deck and rear garden, and up to the heavily treed Anglesea hill to the south.
Glimpses of the sea are captured and framed by windows in the main living area which create a strong sense of place.
A sustainable, comfortable beach house is revived on a handy 827sqm lot. To be auctioned on Sunday, January 27 at 1.30pm unless sold prior, the home is open for inspection Saturday and Sunday 11.30am-noon or by private appointment.
