Time stands still at '80s home

BUILT in the 1980s, this steel-frame home has stood the test of time and still offers a great lifestyle in one of the best beachside locations on the coast.

Owned by the same family who built the home, this property is a local Mudjimba icon. The house has plenty of character, from the wide veranda to the lead-light internal windows above the door ways.

The inside was modified at the time of construction to combine two smaller bedrooms into one large master suite with sliding door access to the covered deck. The second bedroom is a good size with two built-in fold-away beds.

For a house this size there is a surprising amount of living area. The combined lounge and dining area will accommodate larger furniture and the sunroom could double as an office, second living area or third bedroom.

The entire home is air-conditioned and other modifications include a dishwasher and updates to the bathroom. There are security screens to allow the sea breeze through the home. Outdoors features a water tank for the gardens, there are two workshop/garden sheds and a purpose-built gazebo.

Even though the home has plenty to offer, the real star here is the position. Just eight houses back from the beach and the end of the street lines up with the dune entry. This is the main reason homes in this street rarely become available.

Even though it's an older home there's plenty of life left in it for those interested in a simple beachside existence.
