Barwon Heads is a unique coastal village that continues to offer some amazing properties tucked away in hidden pockets of the seaside community.
Bellarine Property’s recent listing of 5 Punt Road is another example of a hidden gem just waiting for the next owner to make it their dream beach getaway.
Nestled in an inner village tree-lined street, this character-filled Californian bungalow’s past has been preserved with warmth and passion, making way for a big family home of gorgeous proportions.
You won’t get much closer to the boutique shops, cafes and restaurants on Hitchcock Avenue, making this the perfect prospect for those looking to live, or holiday in the heart of Barwon Heads.
Bellarine Property director Levi Turner said that this lovingly restored property would make the ultimate beach house.
“With five bedrooms and just a twominute walk to the closest cafe, this timeless Californian bungalow reflects exactly what beach life is about,” Mr Turner said. “Sitting perfectly with Barwon Heads coastal character, 5 Punt Road is tucked away in a quiet street in the heart of town close to the river and pristine beaches.”
With a spacious open-plan living area and generous five bedrooms, this home is perfect for family life or beach holidays with friends.
Situated on a north-facing 569sqm block in a quiet tree-lined street the property is instantly appealing with a wide freshly painted weatherboard façade and picket fence.
An enchanting leadlight door opens to a long central hall with white-washed timber floors with the original three bedrooms being well sized featuring high ceilings, built-in robes and leafy outlooks.
The original home ends and the new extension begins, with a huge open living zone and extensive windows and French doors that gift natural light and connection to the garden.
Enjoy barbecues on the covered southern deck, while kids make use of the big play space in the rear yard that features espaliered apples and plums, and a screen of tall olive trees.
If you’re looking for a home to stand the test of time, this Californian beauty will only get better with age, and with her feet firmly planted in this coastal sanctum, you’ll never want to leave.
