A quintessential Port Fairy home bathed in 150 years of history, character and charm and sitting on an impressively large private block moments from the glorious East Beach, this is a truly unique opportunity for discerning buyers.
Once a simple, solid-stone, four room cottage built in 1853, this sun-drenched seaside property now boasts a tasteful timber and bluestone extension in keeping with its heritage, with the older building retaining original floorboards and time-worn bluestone doorstep.
With two surprisingly large living spaces, an extra-large second-storey parents' retreat with balcony and office space, two bathrooms, two further spacious bedrooms and a kitchen with granite bench tops, this enchanting property in its attractive beachside setting is a must-see for those seeking an exceptional family home or an escape from the city.
Other features include:
Large laundry leading to a separate garden
Two large wood heaters
Three reverse cycle A/Cs
Electric kitchen ceiling skylight
Osmosis water filtration systems
Newly-installed eco hot water system
Infinity HWS for the guesthouse
The property comes with a separate, two storey, self- contained, stylish garden apartment with private entrance, which the current owners rent to visitors as an inviting East beach getaway. This newly renovated residence can be retained as a lucrative guesthouse or to be utilised as a spacious teenagers' retreat or granny flat. The options are endless.
Set in pretty, established gardens with a large lawn and stone entertaining terrace separating the two properties, there is a storage shed, private off-street parking for several vehicles, boat or caravan at the rear, plus super-fast, work-from-home NBN broadband in both buildings.
Perfectly positioned just minutes away form the centre of sought-after Port Fairy and its enviable, relaxed lifestyle, 175 Griffiths Street exudes a delightful and comfortable warmth, together with an alluring sense of times past.
