Make your beach house dreams come true

November 28, 2017 BY

WITH Lorne being the jewel of the Great Ocean Road, and a town where most wish to have their own dream holiday home, it’s timely that Smyth Real Estate has two great Lorne beach houses coming to auction just prior to summer.

First to auction on November 4 is 10 Lorne Avenue, which is perched on a high point in the town, offering glorious ocean views in a prime location

The house is in need of a modern make over, or the land could be an ideal new house site.

Smyth Real Estate’s Grant Powell said that with the views on offer from 10 Lorne Avenue, a buyer would be in a dream position to create a new holiday home, or just make the most of the beach house already there and renovate.

“These views are the envy of many, and the location ensures you cannot be built out.

“This is a rare opportunity to get into the Lorne property market and start enjoying the best of what Lorne has to offer.”

Facing north, the two-storey home comprises open-plan living areas with kitchens both upstairs and downstairs, two bathrooms and five bedrooms.

Located in a quiet cul de sac and only 500 metres from the Lorne Hotel and main shopping and entertainment strip, the position makes this property a rare offering.

With an estimated price range of $1 million to $1.1 million, 10 Lorne Avenue will be auctioned on November 4 at noon.

At 2pm on the same day, Smythe Real Estate will auction 14 Otway Street, another classic original timber beach house that has been immaculately maintained and is in an outstanding central location – a 200-metre stroll from the supermarket, the main street and just another few steps to the beach.

Mr Powell said that this home was ready set go for some wonderful holiday moments, without the need to spend anything further on the property.

“The perfectly positioned property is just far enough away from the bustling main street to enjoy relaxed and private holiday time, but close enough to all Lorne has to offer without needing to take the car.

“The owners have done a fantastic job in presenting this home in such an immaculate fashion. There’s nothing more to be done other than move in.

“Alternately, if you were looking to build a new home, the site offers the room to entertain the many options of a new build.”

The house which was built in the early 1970s, has been lovingly cared for and comprises an open-plan living area with modernish kitchen, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a laundry.

Polished hardwood timber flooring is throughout the house and a balcony spanning the front of the house provides a pleasant outlook to the ocean.

Views of the ocean can be seen from the balcony, living area and two of the bedrooms.

Smyth Real Estate estimates the property will realise a sale price in the range of $760,000 to $840,000, based on recent sales in the area.
