A truly unique offering - one of Werri Beach's original homesteads built in the 1930's, this charming beach house has been lovingly restored and improved upon by the current owners with great care to preserve its rich history and reflect the surrounding scenery. Originally a pair of flats built for railway workers and later converted into a cottage, this beautiful residence has been enriched by the skills of an expert craftsman over the past two decades.
This sunny north-facing block is positioned at the prestigious north end of Werri Beach, just 100 metres from the beach and lagoon. Spend your days swimming, surfing, fishing, kayaking, taking the dogs for a morning walk or enjoying a peaceful afternoon bike ride.
Everywhere you look in this beautiful home you will see authentic bespoke craftsmanship: hand-made louvres, ornate fencing with traditional joinery; lovingly restored timber floorboards; an intricate raked ceiling - twenty years of incremental improvements by a true artisan with painstaking attentiveness to preserve the original beach house atmosphere.
At every opportunity, the history of the surrounding area has been embraced and incorporated into this lovely residence: saloon doors from the local hotel dating back to the 1920's with iconic local landmarks etched in custom-made glass panels; timber and fittings preserved from original neighbouring cottages; a stylish barn door constructed from the dwelling's original timber fascia - the special connection between home and township is evident from the moment you step through the door.
In the backyard, the original outbuildings have been updated and expanded over the years and are now fitted out as two separate studios. The gardens have been lovingly tended to and offer a wealth of joy: an abundance of gorgeous flowers, plentiful fruit trees and fresh vegetables, a private covered gazebo, a spacious swim spa, a fire pit, sunny patio and more still!
The main residence features aircon, renovated bathroom with luxurious free-standing tub, and a brand new 6.8kW solar system. The property has been updated with new cladding, new insulation and new wiring - so you can move in with nothing to do but soak up the relaxing lifestyle on offer. Located just 90 minutes south of Sydney, you'll adore the local markets and cafes, picturesque coastal walk, local wineries and stunning seaside golf course. This is a very tightly held location, and a home of this style and rich history is particularly rare!
