‘The Guest House’
13 Catalina Crescent, Avalon
Reminiscent of a country guesthouse by the sea, this lovingly restored and updated 1950's weatherboard cottage is ideally situated 500m from Avalon Beach. The Guesthouse is one of two holiday lettings available on the one prime beachside property adjacent to the semi- detached "Guesthouse Apartment" sleeping five. (Stayz Property number 182234) Each holiday letting has its own entrance and gardens.The properties may be jointly let as an entirety and this is listed as "By the Sea" about to come online shortly.
The master bedroom upstairs has an en-suite with spa bath and marble finishes, as well as french doors opening to a private balcony with views of the garden. To the east, large windows welcome in the morning sun above a small study area. At the front of the home, an informal living area is furnished with a sofa bed sleeping two, converting when required to to a semi-screened bedroom. This room features plantation shutters and, to the east, a set of long windows with french doors leading to a terracotta patio. Another bedroom featuring a queen sized bed is nestled in the back garden with it's own tiny courtyard and separate access.
The main living area, set beneath a feature light well has floor to ceiling bookcases and an open fire. This is adjoined by a dining area with a setting for up to 16. The recently renovated kitchen with granite bench-tops has an original 1950's gas stove. All open to a long semi-covered verandah overlooking an expansive lawn, ideal for afternoon cricket or volley ball. North Avalon Beach is just a five minute walk away.
*Please note the following: This property has only one bathroom, which is located upstairs adjacent to the main bedroom. There is an internal toilet and outdoors near the Garden Bedroom, a hot water outdoor shower. A caretakers cottage is located in the very back garden and barely visible from the main property and separately accessed via a rear laneway.
