Charming Victorian in the heart of Drysdale

July 1, 2021 BY

1/21 Princess Street in Drysdale is a standout property that complements the town’s built heritage and turns heads.

When we explore our coastal and regional towns there is always that one house which reflects the traditional character of the town that has grown around it.

These properties are rare gems and highly sought-after, as they are not only eye-catching but also capture a snapshot of yesteryear.

Hayeswinckle’s recent listing at 1/21 Princess Street, Drysdale, is a standout example of a head-turning property which complements the town’s heritage.

Timeless elegance is captured effortlessly in this fusion of old world meets new and is one of the few remaining Victorian cottages left in Drysdale.

Selling agent Michaela Miller says this home has to be one of the most unique opportunities on the Bellarine market today.

“This is one of the last remaining Victorian Cottages in the centre of Drysdale,” Ms Miller explained.

“The home effortlessly blends old world charm with modern day living.

“As neat as a pin, cute as a button, there’s nothing to do but move in and enjoy the period charm.

“The home is a true standout on the Drysdale market, and that’s not even delving into how convenient the locale is.

“In the heart of town, you have all amenities within a short stroll away; supermarkets, cafes, medical facilities, public transport and schools.

“This home is your chance to secure a slice of Bellarine history.”

Situated on a 511sqm parcel and instantly tugging at the heart strings, you’re welcomed by the beautiful Victorian frontage, complete with iron lacework, verandah and picket fence.

Soaring 10-foot ceilings and central hallway greet you upon entry, where the period features are evident.

One foot skirtings, ceiling roses, detailed feature cornicing and the warmth of timber floors offer the most inviting of welcomes.

Two bedrooms are positioned at the front of the home, both hosting built-in-robes, with a versatile third bedroom or second living and central family bathroom with shower, bathtub and toilet completing the front section of the home.

Effortlessly free-flowing through the central hallway, a fourth bedroom offers built-in-robes and ensuite with shower, vanity and toilet.This room also offers sliding door external access, so could be used also as a consulting room or office space.

The heart of the home features a renovated kitchen with stainless steel cooking appliances, dishwasher, island bench, built-in-pantry and a plethora of storage and preparation space.

The kitchen overlooks an open dining area and expansive living, which comprises a cosy log fire and feature brick mantel.

Sliding doors from the open living space provide access to the back garden, which is fully enclosed and shaded by established foliage.An undercover pergola with louver roof offers the best of both worlds – all completed by a grassed area.

In the heart of it all, this home will put its new owner within a minute’s walk to all major amenities, schools, public transport, medical facilities and cafes – you simply cannot get any closer.

With the rest of the beautiful Bellarine on your door step, this is an opportunity not to be missed.
