Beachside home ready for next chapter

THIS home has become a local landmark on the beachfront.

For starters it's the only three-storey home that was ever allowed to be built at Mudjimba.

A holiday home in the 1980s, positioned on what was then a secluded beachfront, this property soon went on to become a full-time residence for several families in the decades to follow.

In more recent times significant work has brought the property up to date with designer kitchen/bathroom fittings, freshly polished timber floors and completely redecorated throughout. Larger works include updated roof as well as new decking and paint.

The layout is very specific here too. Most likely the second and third floors would have had sea views in the days before the dune reserve was protected.

The lower floor is virtually self-contained with a kitchenette, bathroom and open living area. First floor comprises of three bedrooms and the main bathroom.

Top level is reserved for expansive open living, kitchen and separate sunroom/sleep out. Wrap-around verandas on the north and east sides of the property provide plenty of outdoor space over the middle and top floors.

Even though the ocean views might have disappeared in the 1990s, the sea breeze and sound of the surf crashing onto the beach has to be experienced to fully understand why someone would go to the trouble of building a three storey home.

The footprint of the existing building on the block is quite small, and the land is zoned medium density providing plenty of potential now and in the future. There's room for a future pool/additional dwelling or simply a large yard to store you boat or caravan.

Separate double garage for outdoor storage and the yard is fenced on this side of the property too.

Even though the house really is something to behold and very different to anything else in the market, the location here is still a stand-out feature. Less than a minute's walk to the beach entry and local cafes and positioned one street back from the esplanade.

This means all the action is right there, yet you're far enough away to enjoy unrivalled peace and privacy.

Whether you're looking for a stand-out beach house, or are interested in holding a prime development site for the future it's well worth coming to see one of Mudjimba's most well-known properties for yourself.
