About this listing
Basking in history, sun and stunning views. This iconic home in seaside Dover is special in so many ways.

This 2757m2 title is in a prime location. Perched on top of a hill, you will enjoy the stunning outlook from almost every window with the master bedroom, living space and large balcony looking over Port Esperance. A short stroll will take you to the beach for fishing, swimming and water sports or in the opposite direction for a coffee and paper at the local shops.

A gorgeous tree lined driveway winds up to this elegant 3 bedroom house, and adds to the feeling of privacy. High ceilings and original features blend with modern touches to ensure you are comfortable year round. While the house was built in 1890 and is seeped in history, there is also a young vibrant feel about the house. An open plan kitchen and dining area with study nook occupy the rear of the house while a large separate living area opens onto a sheltered entertaining deck. A separate outdoor breakfast area catches the morning sun and over looks the garden. The bathroom is central to the house plus there is a second toilet in the laundry. The king size master suite has an adjoining sunroom which would be a delightful parents retreat or presents the perfect space to transform into an ensuite.

Outside, amongst the garden beds, there is a large enclosed veggie patch and a double garage with room at the rear for hobbies or workshop space. The rear yard is nice and level for kids to play games or secure your pets. NBN internet is connected making it easy to set up up an office in an armchair on the deck watching the view.

This property offers a fulfilling lifestyle in a welcoming, friendly community, the chance to own a slice of history, and to escape from the rat-race. For more information or to inspect the property, please contact us at any time.
