A great first home, quality holiday living or investment, 46 Riverside Drive offers close proximity to Torquay’s best assets. Easy access to the Deep Creek Reserve nature and walking trails, or a gentle walk down the street, will have you on the sand in 10 minutes. Peaceful, quiet and lauded as one of most idyllic locations in Old Torquay, you will be surrounded by mature gardens, trees and abundant birdlife that are synonymous with this covetable neighbourhood.

Originally built in the late 1950’s, the home is imbued with a sense of history and connection to its seaside locale. Subsequent extensions and renovations have enlarged the floorplan and modern living comforts, without the loss of characteristic details like paneled walls, art deco internal doors and handles, and timber lining boards. This tapestry of era’s makes for a unique residence that is perfectly livable from day one, or presents opportunities for further renovation and extension on the 585sqm allotment (STCA).

A triangular kitchen window frames the outlook over a flourishing Loquat tree. With views like this, cooking in the newly upgraded kitchen will always be a pleasure. The u-shaped kitchen has new Tassie Oak bench tops, Westinghouse and LG appliances, leading to a comfortable and well laid out open plan meals and generous living area with a gas log fire and brand-new split system reverse cycle unit. Garden views are framed through the north and west windows, inviting you outside to relax on the veranda under the dappled light of the passionfruit vine.

The beautifully maintained backyard offers a picturesque private site to soak up the sunshine. Zoned with native trees, productive edible species, and an abundant vegie patch, you will be harvesting your own olives, nectarines, apples and pears, or picking rhubarb, berries and baby figs for homecooked delights. Nestled into this halcyon setting is a garden shed for all the tools and toys, plus a studio that’s currently set up as an artist’s quarters, but ready to accommodate your needs.

All three bedrooms have Noirot electric heaters and are located at the front of the home, with lovely garden outlooks over the Weeping Myrtle, Giant Lillies and colourful garden beds. The bathroom offers serviceable amenities, including a bath, shower and vanity, while the toilet is situated off the laundry.
Arriving home every day at Riverside Drive, your eyes are drawn to an iconic ocean glimpse of Zeally Bay as you collect the mail. Maximising the available space, the driveway offers great caravan or boat parking, plus room for the car. This position has many advantages for those seeking the peace and tranquility of a coastal lifestyle in a lovely tree-lined street.
