'Castaway Cottage' Marine Parade, Arcadia

A rare opportunity to purchase one of the original 'bank cottages', right on Geoffrey Bay, just 2 minutes' walk to Alma Bay, arguably the best beach on Magnetic Island. 

Immaculately maintained, the home has been renovated to retain its classic charm, with the comforts of modern living.

On entering the living area, the feeling of light and air abounds, with raked ceilings complemented by high louvres, and the classic casement windows showcasing the water views to the front, while timber french doors open up across the back for seamless flow from indoor to outdoor living. 

The two original bedrooms open off the living area and are generous in size with built-in-robes, the front offering beautiful beautiful beach views and the back garden views. Split system air cons have been installed throughout to keep you cool whatever the weather. 

The kitchen has been sensitively modernised to suit the character home, with beautiful Tasmanian Blackwood benchtops, quality appliances, soft-close cabinetry and is open-plan to the living area and study, which occupies the front corner of the home, where you could spend more time watching boats sail by than working! 

The main bathroom features walk-in shower, stone-top vanity and semi-private WC, whilst an ensuite bathroom, also with shower, vanity & WC is part of a recent extension to add a 3rd bedroom, ideal for guests, with separate entry off the also new covered back deck. 

The large 1635m2 lot is a rarity for beachfront house lots and could potentially be further developed as it's one of very few properties in Arcadia that is connected to mains sewerage. Almost completely fenced, there's room to add a pool (but who needs it with Alma Bay right there!), a shed for all your toys, a granny flat or more - subject as always to council approval. 

There's a lockable carport for one vehicle plus driveway parking and side access if you want to hide your boat or caravan in the back yard when you're not using it. A small garden shed holds all the regular gardener needs and with the garden fully irrigated, it's an easy care property. 

One of just three original 'bank cottages', 'Castaway Cottage' holds many special memories for holiday-makers over the years and is likely to be snapped up quickly. Contact Alex to arrange a private inspection by appointment. If you're stuck in Victoria and don't want to miss out, Facetime inspections can also be arranged.
