MERRICKS BEACH – GENTLE WATERS – YACHT CLUB – EVEN A BIT OF SURF

Merricks Beach is a somewhat forgotten part of the peninsula and that’s just the way the locals like it.  Dirt roads screened by Manna Gums and pine trees keeps the anonymity ensuring the small number of homes maintain their privacy and seclusion. 

Property here is tight, and not cheap.  The attraction of a gentle beach; safe for all and the option of a wave closer to the cliff top is a rare Westernport find.  For the yachty types the sailing is excellent, and the Merricks Beach Yacht Club has a local prestige, that would impress even Judge Elihu Smails.  

Homes don’t come on the market too often, in fact data indicates that not a single home has changed hands so far this year.  Well that may change.  The dapper Tom Barr Smith of Kay & Burton real estate; Flinders office gave me the tour of 79 Bayview Road, and what an impressive piece of design and build quality the property offers. 

Designed by Adie Courtney and only 9 years old, it has the aura of a Merricks Beach landmark.  A mix of materials including reclaimed timbers from the Botany Bay wharf, extra wide spotted gum timber flooring, natural stone  feature walls and a Philippe Cheminee French fireplace; sets the home up for an all seasons experience. 

The orientation has been astutely considered.  Positioned at the back of the block; the front yard is generous, opening through a set of gates, where you’ll find such intricacies as a designed letter box and front shed from award winning sculptor Ben Carrol.  Built to maximise protection from the south winds, the outdoor entertaining areas face the afternoon sun and the wonder of kids playing in the front yard adds that little extra spice to the imagination. 

All the mods cons are here.  A delightful and modern kitchen with open plan living and dining.  Mains water, sewerage and gas, NBN and Foxtel connected and an outlet for mains gas to connect your bbq is in place.  The internal footprint includes three large bedrooms, the upstairs master has an ensuite and desired disconnect from the main living areas when needed.

Originally built as a holiday retreat, the owners soon fell head over heels with the area, and the property became the family home. Impressed by the schooling options for their young ones, the ease of movement and excellent surrounding infrastructure, not only did they stay but have bought a larger plot in the area to build another masterpiece and keep their family relationship within the tight boundaries of a Merricks Beach lifestyle.

The only property currently for sale in Merricks Beach, she is an outstanding piece of local architecture and lifestyle.  Considering the size of the block, the delicious quality of the build and taking into account the rarity the price point adds up.

Give Tom a call 0438 368 020 and experience it for yourself.
