49 Old Bittern Dromana Road Merricks North


Gorgeous Period Cottage, Blue Chip Residential Setting

Character filled and ambient with an internal grace that carries well into the modern age, this renovated 1930s cottage was originally the manager's residence for the neighbouring Old Coolstore. Today, the property offers a serene place of residence in a quiet country lane on a rare 1,641sqm (approx.) residential block with the convenience of dual street frontages and separate home office with private driveway.

The timeless perfection of the cottage façade gives way to beautifully renovated interiors perfect for modern life with elevated views across the manageable gardens shaded beneath a magnificent ancient Oak tree and peaceful surrounding countryside.

Retaining Baltic floorboards, the home is welcoming, cosy, light-filled and peaceful providing the perfect surroundings for permanent living or lovely weekend retreat within an hour's drive of Melbourne. A north-facing living and dining room with open fireplace complements a second north-facing living room set beneath a vaulted ceiling and opening to a sunny balcony where you can sit back and relax in perfect peace and privacy. The renovated kitchen with a freestanding stainless-steel oven and dishwasher combines functionality with stylish finishes.

Two double bedrooms each with built-in robes and split-system air conditioning accompany a renovated bathroom with separate toilet and large separate fitted laundry.

The quaint weatherboard home office with data cabling complements a fully fenced front garden, second driveway access from Bittern Dromana Road, ample off-street parking including a double garage with huge workshop and even a chook house so fresh eggs are always on hand.

Live a country life while enjoying the convenience of being within a five-minute drive of Balnarring Shopping Village, Le Bouchon restaurant, Port Phillip Estate, Polpero Winery and farm gates and within ten minutes of beautiful beaches including iconic Point Leo surf beach and secluded Merricks beach, and Merricks General Wine Store and Red Hill's Epicurean and village. The Peninsula's broad offerings from golf courses to schools and Peninsula Link are all easily accessible making this a wonderful lifestyle property for those who crave the peace of the country but desire convenience.
