WITH all 94ha of scenic Star Swamp Reserve practically in your backyard and salty scent of the sea thick in the air, you can holiday at home with this charming beachside cottage.
A gated front entry opens to reveal a delightful courtyard with leafy gardens and a timber veranda for outdoor entertaining.
Here, large french doors from the master bedroom also link it to the courtyard.
Inside, original jarrah floorboards create a welcoming feel in the front lounge room and separate dining room.
In the renovated kitchen, buyers can expect a five-burner gas cooker, dishwasher, double porcelain sinks, timber benches, ample storage and servery windows that allow interaction with the rear alfresco deck.
There is also a generous living/family room at the back of the house with split-system airconditioning, easy-care flooring and double french doors that lead out to the main alfresco space.
On the north-facing side of the house is a saltwater pool with swim jets and a lovely poolside gazebo that can also be accessed via the secure single carport.
There are three bedrooms in total and the modern bathroom has a large bath, pressed tin ceiling and separate toilet.
Completing the home is a laundry with a separate shower – perfect for pool users – a linen/broom cupboard, a pizza oven, CCTV security, an instantaneous gas hot-water system, 5kW solar-power system, garden reticulation and a storage shed under the carport.
