AGLENELG SOUTH home close to the beach was an in­stant at­trac­tion for ven­dor Jill Keepes al­most 20 years ago and it of­fered the per­fect life­style.

‘‘We were down from Syd­ney and we were walk­ing along the fore­shore and we saw the open house,’’ she says.

‘‘We were lov­ing the beach and the ease of ac­cess to ev­ery­thing.

‘‘It is just a beau­ti­ful build­ing, we put an ex­ten­sion on the back but it was done in the same style as the rest of the house so there is a sense of con­ti­nu­ity through­out.’’

The sin­gle-storey stone-fronted home has three bed­rooms, all with car­pet.

The mas­ter is lo­cated close to the mid­dle of the home and it has a built-in wardrobe and an en­suite with a shower.

At the front of the home is a din­ing room with a fire­place and ad­ja­cent to it is a lounge­room with a gas heater.

Both the din­ing and lounge have pol­ished tim­ber floors and french doors that open out to the porch and per­gola at the front of the house.

At the back of the prop­erty is an open­plan kitchen, fam­ily and meals area, with a slate-tiled floor and french doors that open out to a per­gola in the back­yard.

The kitchen has wooden cup­boards, a break­fast bar, stain­less steel ap­pli­ances and a pantry.

‘‘The kitchen is good, the whole fam­ily cooks so it has to be good, it has plenty of stor­age, good bench space and easy ac­cess to what you need,’’ she says.

The home also has a bath­room with a bath and a shower and a laun­dry with ex­ter­nal ac­cess.

The back­yard fea­tures a paved area, na­tive plants and a garage/workshop.

‘‘It has ac­cess to the beach, easy ac­cess to Jetty Rd and shop­ping, you can swim, you can walk, and there are good schools,’’ Ms Keepes says. ‘‘It is a very flex­i­ble prop­erty and in a won­der­ful lo­ca­tion.’’
