Written by The ReReport


THE creative duo behind homewares brand Mr Pinchy & Co have sold their stylish Torquay house.

Michael and Louisa Beer put their own touch on the three-bedroom house at 10 Druids Glen that was snapped up by a Melbourne buyer.

One Agency, Torquay agent Shaun O’Callaghan sold the property after an extended seven-week campaign. Price hopes were $860,000-$895,000.

“The buyers are Melbourne based, they had friends in the area and a pretty strong connection to Torquay so they will be making the sea-change,” Mr O’Callaghan said.

The vendors, that have their homewares stocked throughout Australia and internationally, added their own touches to the house after they bought it six years ago.

In an interview with The Block Shop the couple said the house was a blank canvas when they moved in so they added wood panelling features in the loungeroom and kitchen.

Entry to the house is via a private courtyard that leads to the middle of the house.

At the front of the house are three bedrooms, including the main bedroom with ensuite and walk-in wardrobe.

The open-plan kitchen, meals area and loungeroom are at the rear of the house along with a study or fourth bedroom.

Mr O’Callaghan said the land size of 785sq m was a big plus as blocks that size were harder and harder to come by.

The median house price in Torquay has increased 11.1 per cent in the past year to $797,500, according to CoreLogic.
