OWNER Richie Cal­lanan bought this beach­side home 10 years ago and has en­joyed the con­ve­nient coastal lo­ca­tion.

“It backs on to Toby In­let and is just 150m from the beach,” he said.

“Duns­bor­ough Bay Yacht Club and boat ramp are nearby and there is also easy ac­cess into town by way of the foot­path and cy­cle path.”

On a 1205sq m block, and nes­tled among pep­per­mint trees, the two-storey home has a won­der­ful re­laxed, rus­tic vibe.

In fact, with its tiled roof, salmon-pink ex­te­rior walls, wooden shut­ters and juliet bal­conies, you al­most feel like you are en­joy­ing a hol­i­day in Europe.

In­side, rammed earth walls, ter­ra­cotta floor tiles, col­umns and high ceil­ings are rem­i­nis­cent of Ital­ian vil­las.

The ground floor in­cludes a wellap­pointed kitchen and open-plan fam­ily/din­ing area that opens to a cov­ered tim­ber deck.

There is also a study/me­dia zone that could be used as a fifth bed­room if needed and a self-con­tained granny flat, with bath­room and wood-fired heater, pro­vides room for friends and ex­tended fam­ily to stay when they come to visit.

The spa­cious mas­ter bed­room, with en­suite, and three other bed­rooms, all with built-in robes, a bath­room and sep­a­rate toi­let are up­stairs.

Whether you are look­ing for a hol­i­day home down south or a per­ma­nent sea change, this home is very ap­peal­ing. ■
