BELLS Beach is a very special place to many, especially to those who call Bells home, there are only a very lucky few that can claim this exclusive address as home.
Local celebrities Murray Bingham and Nicky Buckley are part of that lucky group, making their iconic Bells Beach address in Jarosite Road, home for the past 15 years.
After raising three boys in their beautiful home that has undergone two extensions and renovations, their home at 205 Jarosite Road Bells Beach now hits the market with McCartney Real Estate.
Located on 10 acres of pristine Bells Beach hinterland, the splendid home is nestled in this spectacular environment that bustles with native wildlife and the occasional fallow deer, and it’s these natural elements that have made the property so special, Murray and Nicky explained.
“We just loved bringing up our family here in such a quiet natural setting so close to Bells and the surf,” they said.
“Whether the sun is shining or its pouring with rain, the whole place is just so pretty and peaceful.”
Originally purchasing the property in the late 1990’s after a detour down Jarosite Road on the way back from an afternoon in Lorne and spotting the “for sale” sign, Murray and Nicky have never looked back.
“We originally got a feel for the area when we rented in Jan Juc for a while where our whole family just loved being down here.
“So, seeing the McCartney “for sale” sign on an afternoon drive was just perfect timing for us,” they said.
“The property contained a small shack that quickly became a weekender for us and our families, but it wasn’t long before we knew this was going to be our permanent home.
“At the end of the day, we never tire of our meandering driveway through the bush to our home.
“After making this our home for what seems a lifetime, it’s the right time and right moment to move onto our next journey now that the boys are all grown up.”
McCartney Real Estate director Tim Carson said that it was a great honour to be entrusted to sell the iconic Bells Beach property.
“This is just something that doesn’t come along very often, it’s just an exceptional home in an exceptional location,” Mr Carson said.
Surrounded by mature gums and wildlife, with beautiful established gardens, the astute purchaser is guaranteed a relaxed and elegant rural lifestyle of the grandest proportions.
The house’s superb orientation maximises the sunlight and captures the bush setting through beautiful picture windows as well as the stunning ocean views of Bells Beach and the Mornington Peninsula.
Built by renowned local builder Steve Dunstan, the house offers five bedrooms with built-in robes, with a spacious private master bedroom including en suite, walk-in robe and private balcony.
A modern, stylish open-plan kitchen with stone bench tops, quality appliances and walk-in pantry adjoins the dining and living area that features sliding doors opening onto the expansive outdoor veranda.
The split-level extensive separate living area/rumpus room is the perfect zone for family members to enjoy their own space or to study peacefully.
A separate bungalow providing excellent storage and built in man cave or office/studio along with a synthetic grass tennis court add to the properties many additional features.
