Big property close to beach and town
Charming home appealing for holidays or sea change. By NATALIE HORDOV
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. ■
