The beautifully furnished 120-year-old school house features a gabled roof, panelled timber walls and wooden floors, all complemented by a small extension which encompasses 3 bedrooms, a dining room and bathroom/laundry.
The stylishly fitted home has a laid-back, luxurious vide. The main living area is flooded with natural light and includes a comfortable lounge, TV, DVD, Bluetooth speakers and gas heating for the cooler months.
The adjoining kitchen is fully equipped with under bench fridge and freezer, oven/stove, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, KitchenAid coffee machine and a unique Schoolhouse themed pantry catering to all of your local gourmet food and wine storage needs.
The Master and Second bedrooms and equipped with Queen sized beds and floor to ceiling sliding doors which can be opened out onto the back yard. Relax, stay in bed and enjoy the outlook across the tea tree garden, into the Cape Liptrap coastal reserve and sand dunes and listen to the native Eastern Whipbird and ocean waves.
The third bedroom has a single over double bunk plus a trundle mattress. It is a fun room to accommodate the kids and is also able to comfortably accommodate a third couple.
The bathroom/laundry provides toilet, open shower, vanity and washing machine. All basic laundry requirements such as iron, ironing board, washing baskets etc. are available there for your convenience. A cloths line is also attached to the side of the house, particularly useful to dry off those beach towels at the end of a day on the beach.
The natural back yard is home to beautiful native plants, tea trees and has a gas BBQ and outdoor shower. The rustic gate at the back fence opens out onto Cape Liptrap reserve and sand dunes. A stunning walk out that gate and you find yourself at Venus Bay Beach 1, a broad sandy ocean beach that is popular for summing and surfing and is patrolled by the Venus Bay surf lifesaving club during the summer months.
Old School Beach House is also a 10-minute stroll to the main street shops and park and a short drive to the Andersons Inlet Coastal Reserve.
