'Gingara' - Tranquil & stylish escape 500m to the sand
Hidden down a long private driveway on a stunning native allotment with barely a neighbour in sight, this superb home blends the chic detailing of a modern Scandinavian lodge with a very Australian seaside setting beside gums and native grasses. Just a leisurely amble across the Dodds Creek footbridge to the beach or a 15 minute stroll to the bistros, cafes, takeaways and chocolatier of Flinders town centre, the black-clad exterior and warm exposed timbers inside offer a rare calm and tranquillity perfect for holiday escapes, set on 910sqm (approx). Set beneath a soaring pitched roofline with high clerestory windows, the three-bedroom residence features a spacious galley kitchen with Miele dishwasher that overlooks a large living area with open fireplace, while sliding glass doors reveal a north-facing sundeck that makes for blissful outdoor entertaining as the koalas and kookaburras watch on from the tall native trees above. The tri-level layout amplifies the sense of space and retreat with the master bedroom located on the mezzanine level while a second living area features a treetop outlook. A tranquil escape 1.5 hours from Melbourne or peaceful permanent home, the residence includes two bathrooms, split-system airconditioning, garden patio and carport, while the low-maintenance 910sqm (approx) allotment behind gates allows for lock-and-leave security.
