Enjoy the best of both worlds at this mid-century marvel a few metres from the water in Brighton.
A cocktail bar, slate-surrounded open fireplace, exposed timber and copper beams and horse wallpaper create a modernist dream at 3 Keith Court.
The mid-century home is heading to auction on November 10 with price hopes of $3.5-$3.7 million.
However, selling agent Nick Johnstone said the position of the home was attracting more potential buyers to the property than the style of it.
“You could renovate the house or pull it down and build something new (subject to council approval),” Mr Johnstone said.
“It is in an amazing spot across the road from the beach and it is in a dead-end court, this type of property is very rare to come across.”
He said the home was really well maintained and had a terrific Port Phillip Bay view from the living area upstairs.
The house has a flexible floorplan with four bedrooms serviced by three bathrooms on the ground floor.
There is also an open-plan kitchen, meals and living area on this level as well as access outside to the swimming pool and slate-tiled courtyards.
Upstairs will take you back in time with two walls of windows, an open fireplace and a corner bar ideal for entertaining. This space flows outside to a terrace that captures sail boats gliding across the bay.
The 582sq m property is across the road from the white sand and iconic bathing boxes of Middle Brighton Beach.
Mr Johnstone said the market was strong for good family homes in the area.
