10 Telford Street, Marengo is a perfect retro beach shack in top-notch condition with a massive front yard that offers endless summer fun.

Just off the Great Ocean Road, Marengo is a picturesque location with the beautiful beaches of Mount Bay spanning the coastline back to Apollo Bay, and the pristine Marengo Reefs Marine Sanctuary just off the point.

Many families have made this place both home and holiday haven with a lot of owners holding on tightly to their favored spot for over 50 years.

Great Ocean Road Real Estate have recently listed a perfect retro beach shack in top notch condition with a massive front yard that offers endless summer fun at Marengo.

This much-loved and impeccably preserved 1960’s family beach shack is situated at the rear of a huge 1541 sqm block just a short stroll to popular Marengo beach and the famous Great Ocean Walk with tracks to the Apollo Bay township and along the coast.

The block at 10 Telford Street Marengo is elevated to the rear and provides beautiful views of the Otway Ranges.

Well-built and impeccably maintained and presented, this dwelling was made to last, the cottage is light and bright with large windows to the north and polished timber floors throughout.

Great Ocean Road Real Estate director Darren Brimacombe said this property had been in the current family for more than five decades, generations have enjoyed family holidays with many a beach days and backyard cricket matches over the years, but the vendors are keen to give this special property a new chapter.

“It’s very liveable at the moment, an easy stroll to sandy shores of Marengo Beach, the Great Ocean Walk and a pleasant walk or bike ride to the town centre of Apollo Bay, it doesn’t get much better than this.

“Furthermore, the substantial size of the land, approximately 1,542sqm, opens up exciting possibilities to subdivide and build one or multiple new dwellings to the front subject to council approval, whilst still retaining the original cottage as a permanent home, holiday rental or granny flat for guests.”

Accommodation consists of two robed bedrooms with a central lounge and an adjacent dining area.

The cute pink kitchen even includes a servery to the dining area adding to the retro vibe and the property is serviced by a spacious laundry with plenty of room for a washing machine/dryer and storage.

Off the laundry is a shower room and separate toilet and access to the back garden.

This endearing cottage has an established fenced back garden complete with garden shed.

The backyard has plenty of room to sit and relax and provides an oasis to the local birdlife amongst its beautiful trees.

At the front of the cottage, a magnificent gum stretches its low limbs across the garden at the perfect height for a hammock or two in the shade.
