A fabulous light-filled family home - with pool and great backyard - perfectly positioned within an easy stroll of the local village and beaches, by Melbourne's Port Phillip Bay.
Charming Black Rock village, a mere stroll down to the end of the street, is small and vibrant, bustling with cafes, restaurants, hair and nail salons, and shops filled with local goodies. The world-renowned Royal Melbourne Golf Course is less than 500 metres away!
As for the beach, choose to walk to Black Rock's main beach - complete with fantastic foreshore park for the kids (including BBQ areas, perfect for picnics or fish'n'chips by the Bay!) - or Half Moon Bay - with aquatic life for snorkeling, and where the last surviving monitor warship in the world, the HMVS Cerberus, acts as a breakwater! A very short car trip away, Ricketts Point Beach and Marine Sanctuary is the perfect place to introduce kids to the wonder of Victoria's underwater marine life, with its rockpools close to the shore.
The home itself includes 4 bedrooms downstairs, with the main bedroom upstairs - great as a parent's retreat! Set up with king size bed (with heavenly Tempur mattress) in the main bedroom (as well as a cot if needed upstairs), and the 4 downstairs bedrooms with a queen size bed, 2 x single beds and 1 x cot. This home features a sunny formal lounge, meals area beside a euro appliance kitchen and a spot for the kids to get together inside and out with a relaxed family-room opening to a wraparound decked terrace - with new Weber BBQ - ideal for outdoor living.
A further bonus is a multi-functional outdoor room as a separate space for the kids - or parents! - when needed.
Contemporary comforts include ducted heating, air-conditioning, alarm system and video-intercom secure entry. With automated gates, generous family-friendly grounds including big gumtree, a dual heated pool and spa, carport and a kids' paradise backyard complete with fantastic cubby, slide, sandpit and basketball system, this home ticks every box for a relaxed family summer lifestyle.
