Raw, natural elements enhance the coastal appeal of this renovated
3 bedroom house, in a tranquil setting, just steps to the dunes of Rye Ocean Beach.
The rustic feel is evident on arrival as the sliding Corten gate opens to reveal the single-level residence clad in dark timber and skirted with a contrasting deck. Inside, blackbutt timber floors sweep through the living areas while the beamed ceilings, textured panelled walls and brick woodfire surrounds are cloaked in calming white. The stunning, light-filled kitchen is generous in size, includes S/S appliances, and has masses of bench and cupboard space.
From the central hallway, three bedrooms have built-in robes and are newly painted and carpeted. The main bedroom looks out to the naturalist landscaped garden with a timber retaining wall providing privacy.
The rear deck has a covered lounge and dining area. Lush lawns sprawl to a built-in fire-pit and U-shaped timber seating. A large shed has been converted to provide studio accommodation, ideal for a teenager or weekend guest, while ample storage for surfboards has been retained.
This property is in a tightly held area just a few minutes' stroll down bushy beach tracks to the shore and the Back Beach shops. Hot springs, golf courses and bay beaches are a short drive away.
