JUST a short stroll up the river from where the Seachange series was produced in Barwon Heads is a rare opportunity to live that Seachange dream. With an absolute riverfront position, RT Edgar Bellarine’s most recent listing at 6 Carr Street is sure to excite those enchanted by the river.
“Buckaginga” is something very rare and very special. It sits in the most tightly held area of Barwon Heads, according to selling agents Peter Molloy, Andy Ingham and Candace Harrison-Smith.
Sales consultant Candace Harrison-Smith says that it’s very humbling for their agency to be entrusted to sell such a prestigious home that has produced so many memorable holiday moments for the owners.
“It’s very rare for river precinct properties to come on the market in Barwon Heads with the most recent sale in this area being 4 Paringa Lane, which sold in May last year for in excess of $4 million on a 308sqm block of land,” Ms Harrison-Smith said.
“Overall, there have only been a handful of river precinct properties sold over the past few years, so we are very grateful for the opportunity to bring this amazing property to market.”
The magnificent home is situated on a huge block of approximately 1,391sqm in a prime position. With a nod to the Cape Cod style of architecture, this superb two-storey residence offers privacy, luxury and the ultimate coastal prize – absolute water frontage.
Through tall double gates, the driveway leads to a remote-controlled double garage and a covered portico at the front door. Entry delivers an unexpected shot of adrenalin, as the view down the central, polished, timber-floor passage draws you through the lounge room and past the bay-window dining alcove, to the breathtaking panorama of the Barwon River beyond, few homes anywhere on the peninsula provide such spectacular impact.
From the spacious entry lobby, an office sits on the northern side, while a laundry and separate powder room occupy the other. Along the passage, huge glass panels reveal a north-facing deck with a slatted pergola overhead – the perfect destination for outdoor dining and entertainment.
Two large bedrooms with ceiling fans share a delightful bathroom featuring twin basins, a frameless glass shower, a heated towel rail, and a toilet. One of the bedrooms opens through double doors to an enclosed deck with river views.
Upstairs, there’s a central sitting room with a split system, two more bedrooms with ceiling fans, and a generous bathroom with bath/shower and vanity, and a separate toilet.
The east-facing river frontage has a boat ramp, private moorings and a jetty, while elsewhere there’s an open-sided boatshed, and a substantial enclosure that’s currently home to multiple vegetable garden beds and a clutch of chickens.
This is Barwon Heads living at its very best, so don’t miss this golden opportunity to inspect.
To be sold via Expressions of Interest ending on May 25 at 5pm.
