Federation-era Heads’ home under hammer

By | April 15, 2015

BELLARINE Property will auction an iconic riverside home at 14 River Parade, Barwon Heads this weekend.

Positioned opposite the river, Elandra is an iconic Federation-style homestead, built circa 1910.

Set on a tranquil 854 square metre riverside allotment among spacious gardens, this four bedroom home is very charming.

You can sit back and watch the Barwon River wind on by from your stunning veranda or wander down along the river on the many nearby walking tracks.

This is a rare opportunity to purchase an iconic piece of Barwon Heads in sought after River Parade, according to Bellarine Property’s Christian Bartley.

“It’s been a long time since we have taken a property to auction in this beautiful quiet location,” Mr Bartley said.

“Barwon Heads and this home certainly deserve the opportunity of having buyers bid for it.

“Having been built in 1910, moved here to Barwon Heads 40 years ago then having an extension to the original home, it’s still in such pristine condition with an amazing northern view of the river. Located on 854 square metres of land, the word rare keeps on arising when talking about this property.

“We have had three house sales in excess of $1.45 million occur along River Parade over the past few years.
