THIS PROP­ERTY IS A SHORE THING

Geelong Advertiser - - NEWS - TESSAT HAY­WARD

THROW a line in or pad­dle on to Swan Bay from the com­fort of your own home at this Queen­scliff prop­erty that has just hit the mar­ket. The sprawl­ing 3.64ha prop­erty at 4 McDon­ald Rd is po­si­tioned in a tightly held pocket of Queen­scliff and has its own lake with di­rect wa­ter ac­cess to Swan Bay. RT Edgar, Point Lons­dale agent Felix Hakins said you could glide through the mouth of the lake on to Swan Bay on a kayak or stand up pad­dle­board and en­joy the peace and quiet.

“It is one of the only dwellings that has wa­ter ac­cess to Swan Bay from the prop­erty,” Mr Hakins said.

“Peo­ple also do look at catch­ing some bream off there. It is re­ally nice there, es­pe­cially at sun­set.”

Mr Hakins said there were not many prop­er­ties of that size so close to town. “It is a ter­rific lo­ca­tion and a unique prop­erty,” he said.

As well as its own lake, the prop­erty also has a three-be­d­room weath­er­board cot­tage.

The house, which is used as a hol­i­day rental, has an open-plan liv­ing area with gal­ley kitchen, three bed­rooms that share the up­dated main bath­room plus a laun­dry with sec­ond toi­let that is ac­cessed from the cov­ered out­door en­ter­tain­ment area.

There is also a dou­ble garage, stone pizza oven and cubby house on stilts that hides in the trees.

Mr Hakins said buy­ers could ex­tend the home or leave it as it is and have a great lit­tle beach home that cap­tures views from ev­ery win­dow.

The lux­ury home next door on a sim­i­lar land size sold for $3.225 mil­lion in 2016, ac­cord­ing to CoreLogic.

An ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est cam­paign for the wa­ter­front prop­erty will close on Mon­day, Novem­ber 12, at 5pm. Price hopes are $2.7 mil­lion to $2.95 mil­lion.
