Beachside hideaway in Old Shoreham
Set on almost 1 acre (approx) in old Shoreham beside the Buxton Woodland Reserve and so close to the surf breaks of Honeysuckle Point you can walk there in your wetsuit, this historic five-bedroom plus study home with separate studio marries timeless period charm with modern refurbishments for the ultimate seaside escape. Built in 1914 and relocated to the site in 1926 when it was part of the Buxton Camp, original Federation windows, leadlighting and polished timber floors lend an eternal elegance to the home, which boasts two spacious living areas and a modern gourmet kitchen with stone and stainless-steel countertops and Asko/Ilve appliances. Three comfortable bedrooms in the main house are serviced by a modern ensuite and family bathroom – both with under tile heating, while the semi-self-contained two-bedroom flat with separate entry offers another living space and third bathroom, ideal for in-laws or very lucky teens. An enormous entertainer’s deck and sun patio provide ample room for the largest of summer soirees – while there is also a detached studio with fourth toilet beside the rustic bungalow with potbelly stove and shower facilities. Loaded with charm and limitless lifestyle appeal, this self-sustaining surfer’s sanctuary includes hybrid wood/gas hydronic heating, 12kW solar panels with battery backup, fireplace, ceiling fans, chook run, fruit orchard, raintank, outdoor shower, triple carport with powered/plumbed lock-up workshop.
