This distinctive four-bedroom sandstone home sits slightly apart yet remains comfortably connected to the coastal architecture of the neighbourhood only 350 metres from the beach. The tiled entry way leads you past the two downstairs bedrooms with their walk-in robes, that share a bathroom. There’s an all-weather entry from the large single garage to the laundry, and a direct door into the foyer. Then there’s the large rumpus/sun-room, come family room, come pool room, come hobby centre that faces north west and opens directly to the private garden area. The well equipped kitchen with its large pantry, presides over a delightful family space with a north facing balcony for the sounds and breezes of the ocean. Dining and living areas (with ocean glimpses) adjoin making for a feeling of welcome and luxury accentuated by the high ceilings. Privacy is the watchword for the two upstairs bedrooms (or one of them a large study), of which the master boasts an ensuite and walk-in robe. The other could work as a study.

Originally built as an operations centre and office for a tourism accommodation business, this building, constructed in neutral tones of color-bond is fully lined and currently used for storage. Whilst it has a kitchenette and a one-bathroom area including toilet already in situ, it would not take a great deal of mostly internal work to create a very spacious two-bedroom cottage, with income earning potential, subject to council approval. It is 115 sqm or 13 squares in size and is set on a leasehold site of 500 sqm (with corresponding shares in the freehold title), surrounded by common areas totalling 36 acres of bush and cleared land. The building is at least 100 metres from the nearest other cottage, which is not visible from this site. Encircled by the beautiful Great Otway National Park, this potential dwelling has views over extensive pockets of eucalypt forest, delightful natural bush-land and rolling grassland areas. With an expansive vista of the Otway Ranges and majestic sand dunes behind the heritage listed Aire River estuary, it really is quite stunning. With no lease fees to pay in perpetuity, this property is on a 399 year leasehold title, overlaid to a freehold 'company share title'. Company directors are, and can only be, the owners of each of the properties. There are eight titles, spread over 60 acres of forest and grasslands, each with their own land attached, the rest being 36 acres of common areas comprising natural bush and open recreational land. Think of it as a ‘body corporate’ style of ownership, as this is how the structure works. The closest thing to freehold title possible in this zoning. The ‘Rural Conservation Zone’ came into being in 2006 and does not allow subdivision of land below 100 acres or 40 ha, hence this title set up. With excellent access, mains power, fresh water and septic tank, most of the expensive stuff is done, maybe this is the bargain of a lifetime.

One of the only historic homes left in Apollo Bay is ready to be taken to the next level. On a massive 1222 sqm north facing block, this Circa 1908 ex ‘Butter Factory Managers’ home is a standout. It can’t be demolished, but the possibilities of extension and further development are endless, especially with how much land there is around it.

It retains many of its original features in there original condition, including the fret work in the entrance, two original fire places, and beautifully maintained ‘Brush Box’ polished floors boards. Even the IXL wood stove is still in the kitchen. The garden is full of stately trees including two superb Date Palms that can be seen from almost anywhere in Apollo Bay.
