Adults-only holiday home in Portland North
This 1970's elevated, retro holiday home is a wonderful mix of homely accommodation and stunning water views from the living areas, kitchen and bedrooms. Two sides of the house have floor-to-ceiling windows so the changes in the weather make visitors feel part of nature. At night, the lights of the wharf and the town of Portland shine in the windows and the quiet street makes you feel relaxed when you wake up to a sunrise over Portland Bay.
It is great to cook in this functional kitchen with good bench space flowing into an open living area. The view here extends to Cape Bridgewater 25 km away. The 2 bedrooms have great water views and queen-sized beds for a total of 4 guests .
At the end of the street, just 6 houses down, there is a picturesque 200 step walkway leading down to the beach for lovers of fishing, swimming, ocean strolls and a dog-friendly beach.
Downstairs, there is a gas BBQ, gas heater and table setting, with a second toilet, and adjacent is the separate garage in the rear yard set up with a pool table, table tennis and a pot belly heater.
The wide driveway can hold up to 4 vehicles or boats, and there is an additional parking space out front, so there is no need to move the Kingswood to get the Ford out. This street location ensures very little traffic so manoeuvring boats out is an easy task. The boat ramp is a leisurely 5-minute drive. as is the Main Street in town.
The rear yard is fenced and gated, and suitable for children and dogs alike.
