DO you remember when the South-West was a known mainly as a casual coastal holiday destination?
You would pack up the car, take the long drive down Bussell Highway and spend some time relaxing in a beach shack right on the coast.
It was a simple and pleasant lifestyle, walking down to the beach, enjoying a surf or swim, coming home for a barbecue dinner, and falling asleep listening to the sound of the waves rolling up on the shore or the wind through the trees.
Now the South-West is a thriving area, a great place to live and work as well as visit for a holiday, but there are still opportunities to relive those good old days.
This neat and tidy home is one of the last of the old-style beach shacks and is in a prime location.
Selling agent Paul Wyndham said until the 1970’s surfers visiting the area would camp under the melaleuca trees, with houses and cabins springing up after this time.
“Naturally the ‘front row’, closest to the beach, was the most popular,” he said.
“This is now one of the last simple holiday homes left and is right opposite the main access to Yallingup Beach.”
The three-bedroom, one-bathroom home is protected from the prevailing winds and there are ocean glimpses from ground level.
You can still enjoy the easy living vibe of yesteryear or, as the home is on an 826sq m block, there is the opportunity to build your dream holiday home or permanent sea-change residence in walking distance of the beach – a two-storey home will have great ocean views.
Mr Wyndham said it was a once in a lifetime opportunity.
