Description

Adorable seaside cottage


Herons on the estuary will entertain you from your front porch, and you can drift off to sleep with the sounds of the sea. This enchanting seaside cottage evokes a gentler era, the place where you made lasting summer holiday memories or went to stay with your grandmother.

61 Martin Street, Monaco, is one of the treasures of this seaside community, built as a bach in the 1940s and grown since with home comforts and space without losing its nostalgic charms.

You are well elevated above the inlet, with two entrances, one each from Martin Street and Point Road, an increasingly rare benefit in this most neighbourly of locations where you live to the rhythm of the tides.

With 1506 square metres of land, there is much on offer. It's not just the cottage itself, but the gardens that make this home so special. Graceful, mature kanuka trees provide shade and there are colourful and native cottagey plantings and inviting lawn nooks. Fruit trees abound, grapes drape over pergolas and vegetables seem to thrive.

There are three bedrooms in the 130 square metre floorplan, including a master with views over estuary to eastern hills, and two lounge areas. French doors open to decks and sea breezes while in winter you have two log burners for evening cheer. The house has underfloor insulation.

At the back is a sleepout with loads of potential.

Original timber doors remain along with wooden floors.

There's a front gate and car access close to the front door off Point Road and a car port and loads of parking on the Martin Street side. There's plenty of storage space under the house, along with a workshop.

Yes, there are things to do, improvements you could make to the house but that may also be part of the appeal of this charming cottage which exudes tranquillity.

It is loveable and very liveable as is. Just come with your dreams and plans.
