The SpaceWelcome to Heatherly c. 1905, a 100 year old former fisherman's cottage, in a perfect beach-side location. With its attractive streetscape, our Edwardian home has the period charm of open fire places, fretwork and pressed metal ceilings along with modern comforts such as hydronic heating, retro SMEG dishwasher & fridge.
Located just three houses from the beach, around the corner from Sandringham shopping village (supermarket, fruit shop and bakeries) and 200 metres to Sandringham train station, it is a wonderful location we have enjoyed for the last 17 years of living here.
Join the thousands of cyclists each day who ride along Beach Road (Melbourne is bike mad and we are a cycling family), or walk across the road to the beach and enjoy the beautiful coastal walks north to Brighton or south to Beaumaris.
Sandringham beach is just across Beach Road; a sandy, clean, safe beach (bay not surf) and even has its own life-saving club. Our outside deck is the perfect place to relax and even has a outdoor shower to wash off all the sand when returning after a day at the beach.
We are around the corner from Sandringham shopping village with its numerous cafe's, restaurants and novelty shops. Just a few steps to enjoy the shops, or for dinner out, but far enough away for peace and quiet at night.
200 metres to Sandringham train station, where the train takes less than 30 minutes into Melbourne city or a short bus trip to Southland Shopping Centre with its 120 shops.
Upstairs is the master bedroom (queen bed) with full ensuite and walk-in robe, along with a own separate lounge/study area with water and sunset views.
The 2nd bedroom (downstairs) is freshly painted, with built in robes, gorgeous white furniture, and polished floor boards. The third bedroom (downstairs) has built in robes, TV and couch which has the option of becoming an additional double bed for extra guests if you wish (to be discussed with host regarding cost).
Our home has two bathrooms with the upstairs ensuite (complete with bath) and downstairs bathroom which excellent hot water. Bathroom towels are provided along with bed linen, pillows and even beach towels.
Breakfast is included - cereal, orange juice, tea, coffee and toast. This can be eaten in the dining room or out on the patio enjoying our lovely Melbourne weather.
There is even a laundry and clothes line available to catch up on all that washing.
On street car parking is available and we can help you with all day car parking if needed. But with wonderful public transport (train and bus) around the corner and Beach Road and it's bike path all the way into the city, who needs a car?
