15 Bonnyvale Road, Ocean Grove
Seeking an affordable beach house, or as young family looking for a bit of extra room, with two living rooms across a split level, the opportunity is here. As a continued investment, in this lucrative coastal market, this low maintenance property will tick along nicely. The design of the house has interesting lines and angles, melded together with a materials palette of bagged exterior brick with an interior of timber lining boards and feature sandstone walls. The downstairs lounge is quite spacious yet cosy with the raked ceiling and gas-fired log heater, and opens to the deck to let the seabreeze in. The kitchen is separately zoned, yet still part of the open plan, and has instant access to the yard. Upstairs with the ensuite master and WIR, the second living room captures the ocean view and can be a flexible space - whether as a study or dedicated parent’s retreat. The house is surrounded by beautiful tree life that doesn’t impinge on the northern light of the interior. The neutral palette is accented with natural timber in the joinery and framing, and the solid bones with some sprucing will reward you tenfold. There is scope to upgrade the wet areas, but for now with the overall house in excellent condition, time is on your side. The front yard shields the house from the street, and the rear yard with a paved alfresco setting overlooks rural acreage. Located at the top end of Bonnyvale, you are granted immediate access to Shell Road, that links to the Bellarine Hwy via Banks Rd. With the surfboard anchored to the bike it's a 5-minute ride to the beach. A 10-minute stroll to the Marketplace shopping centre, and in the car is a quick drive to the primary and secondary schools. Come take a look.
