This unique property is a rare gem hidden amongst the beachside cottages at Capel Sound (formally Rosebud West). An architecturally designed house which sits only 200 metres from the bayside beach at Capel Sound Foreshore and a few minutes walk to shops and restaurants. With the waters edge so close ,it is a great family and pet friendly beach home. Comfortable and large enough to accommodate a family or two but still cosy enough for couples, groups or a single family.
The house is nestled into a well established garden block with towering gum trees and native foliage, once you enter the garden entrance you are transformed into your own private world. The sound of birdlife will sooth you for much of the day and watch the stars through the trees at night.
Welcome to a beautifully preserved 1960s house with stunning architectural features. At the north facing front there is a dining area for six and a quiet spot to sit on the verandah.
Open the door and enter a beautiful entranceway with flagged floor and floor to ceiling windows. You don't see entrance halls like this very often. Light and bright it is the centre of the house that is designed in a H layout. There is also a built in laundry in here behind the double doors. To your left there is a large lounge and dining with full length windows and vaulted ceiling and a beautiful original stone wall feature and parquetry floor. A large TV and U-shaped lounge is the ultimate location - think "Madmen", think "Ratpack" all you need is a cocktail! Martini anyone? A gas log fire gives you cosiness for winter stays. There is a modern dining table with low lighting overhead to give you the ambient mood you require and a server from the original kitchen. The kitchen is original in its design with beautifully preserved wooden cupboard from floor to ceiling. The electric hob is in pristine condition for its age and so is the cooker. This is a fully equipped kitchen with everything you need for a self catering escape.
Back out to the hallway and across to the other side of the H-Block there are two bedrooms and bathroom. A Queen Size bedroom beautifully decorated to match the feel of the house with floor to ceiling robes. A second bedroom has two single beds (plus a trundle bed if you need a 7th guest) and both bedrooms have stainless steel overhead fans.
There is still more to this wonderful property. Open the door to the internal garden and take a step left and you are at the door of a studio - always known as the Martini Lounge. This studio space has a small kitchen with microwave, a bathroom and queen bedroom and small private lounge with TV. This is a great private space and although it is so close to the house (in fact it is attached) you do need to take a step outside to get to it but its perfect for an extended family or group. You could safely pop the kids in here with a movie while you drank your cocktails in the main lounge.
The internal courtyard garden has bench dining and is completely secluded for private evenings al fresco and just behind a black bamboo fence is a sunny spot with chairs again completely private for sunning yourself during the day. The BBQ is here too hidden away for aesthetics but close enough to cook and enjoy a chat with the diners.
This unique home away from home has free wireless internet, reverse cycle/air conditioning (in the studio), gas fire and wall heaters and overhead fans - what more could you ask for, this property has everything you need and you will be raving about it to all your friends.
Please Note - this is self catering accommodation the room is not serviced on a daily basis. However, all linen, towels, basic kitchen provisions and toiletries are supplied for your arrival. Please Note - price is based on up to 6 guests.
A short stroll from the unique beachside property will bring you to the lovely bayside beach at Capel Sound . Perfect for the kids with miles of sand and shallow wading waters. Great in winter for windsurfing and walking the dog. It is also a short walk to shops and restaurants
