Perfectly proportioned 3 bedroom beach house just 50 metres from the golden sands and safe swimming and surfing at Marengo beach.
Designed and built by architect David MacDonald in the 1990s, this home sits in perfect harmony with its environment in the tightly-held enclave, on the coveted Marengo headland.
The cedar-clad house captures the sun-drenched northern aspect and is full of natural light. Recently refurbished to a high standard this property is architecturally significant and distinctive, both inside and out.
Soak up the ambience of this wonderful location, while relaxing to soothing sounds of crashing waves. Experience captivating sunrises and sunsets through floor to ceiling windows, in both upper and lower levels.
Upstairs the open plan boasts a barrel-vaulted ceiling. The overall effect is a sense of space and unique living/dining/kitchen enjoyment, in a relaxed, nautical setting. Window and deck positioning optimises magnificent views.
The main deck echoes a ship’s bow and extends across the front of the house and along the eastern external wall to take in the sweeping views, including Otway hills, Cape Patton, Bass Strait, Mounts Bay and offshore reefs. The deck is covered for all-year-round protection and easy entertaining. Its design allows for unfettered ocean views, even in the wildest of coastal weather.
The bedrooms downstairs feature angled walls and captured light. The main bathroom and separate WC have been skilfully refurbished and are aesthetically and functionally pleasing.
Inspection is by appointment or at advertised times.
