This character filled, recently renovated three bedroomed beach house is surrounded by native bush set high on a ridge in Mount Martha with glimpses of the ocean through the trees. It is surrounded by rolling hillside and only a stones throw from Mount Martha golf course.
LIVING ZONE - INDOORS
Decorated with exceptional attention to detail there is a strong influence of artefacts and artworks from Melanesia which gives the property a distinctive stylish beach feel, but it has all the modern comforts and space for a large family or group of friends.
As you walk into the house, you'll see the separate downstairs lounge with cosy log fire and TV. The lounge has an L-shaped sofa for relaxing. Going up the stairs, the area opens out into the open plan kitchen, dining and second lounge area. The lounge and dining has a relaxed beach feel with asian influenced furniture. A flatscreen TV with surround sound, iPod docking station and wifi gives you all the mod cons. There is a recently renovated gourmet kitchen with everything the modern cook could want.
Remotely controlled newly installed windows can let in the breeze in summer but there is also an air conditioner in this room and sliding doors take you out to a recently installed expansive deck.
LIVING ZONE - OUTDOORS
It is outside that this house really shines, with a marvellous upper outdoor deck with lounge and dining for entertaining with your own little stairway leading to the garden with outdoor pool area. Perfect for those evenings listening to the sound of the stunning birdlife that surrounds the property (lots of kookaburras, lorikeets and cockatoos love to perch on the balconied deck and eat out of your hand if you invite them) and drinking your favourite tipple while relaxing on the deck with glimpses of the Melbourne's city lights in the distance.
The lovely pool has secure fencing, deck chairs to relax on and a small outdoor table and chairs. Have a snack while lazing by the pool to go with a cocktail or glass of wine on a hot Summers day.
The three bedrooms are spacious and can accommodate up to seven guests with queens beds in two of the rooms and a double/single bunk combination in the third. All rooms have built in wardrobes and one has its own ensuite. All linen included.
There is a family bathroom with shower and bath along with an ensuite to the master bedroom. All towels and basic toiletries are provided. Please note that the bathrooms have not yet been renovated but they are immaculate and showcase original design tiles which just adds to the character of this beautiful house.
Set in an idyllic location with natural bushland on two sides there is opportunity to walk with the dog, the road down to the beach and the lovely Mt Martha village takes only 3 minutes in the car but would take you a good 30 - 40 minutes to walk down the hill to the most gorgeous of beaches and Mt Martha village with cafes, restaurants, shops, art gallery, antiques shop, playground, medical centre and vet. The golf course is a stones throw (literally) and the wineries of dromana including Dromana Estate, Hickinbotham and Crittendens are minutes drive away. You are on the foot of Arthurs Seat and all the Red Hill gourmet producers and only a short drive to the market town of Morningon!
