Of good bones and solid provenance; phrases that fit beautifully with this 1950s cream brick classic - the childhood home of Men at Work's singer and Australian music icon, Colin Hay, and still within the family to this day. Lived in and enjoyed by the Hay family for just shy of 50 years, this perfectly positioned Beaumaris home, sitting on approximately 636sqm, offers significant scope for a renovation, or prime possibilities for replacement (STCA) to create a fabulous double-storey bayside residence for the future. Only 400m to the beach and 5 minutes to the Concourse and local cafes, this enviably positioned 3 Bedroom home offers both formal and casual living that's complemented perfectly by a rear sunroom overlooking deep and lush private gardens that offer exciting options to further enhance. A generous bathroom has been recently renovated - the new facelift adding a brand new shower, vanity and toilet and seeing a skylight feature provide an abundance of natural light. A charming kitchen, light and bright in appearance and flowing through to an adjacent dining room, offers electric cooking, a breakfast bar and is both functional and spacious with a plentiful amount of bench and cupboard space. Without a doubt, one of the standout features of this well-built family home is the multiple access provided to the rear garden/courtyard afforded via glass doors opening from 3 separate living areas. Many family BBQs and Christmases were spent outside in the delightful alfresco courtyard that needs to be seen to truly appreciate its size, positioning, entertaining options and prospects. An exceptional opportunity to buy into a family-friendly pocket that's a short walk to both Banksia and Beaumaris Reserves, local bus stops, Beaumaris Primary School and a 5-minute drive to leading Mentone secondary schools. Positioned to take full advantage of the best a bayside lifestyle can provide, this home also features ducted heating, air-conditioning, lock-up garage with shelving plus an undercover carport and additional off-street parking.
