Great Ocean Properties, Aireys Inlet agent Marty Maher said the buyers would be using it as a holiday house.

The property last sold for $720,000 in June, 2017. At the time there was a lot of natural timber and exposed brickwork on show.

Now, with fresh paint on every wall inside and out, a new kitchen and bathroom, the three-bedroom house has been given a new lease on life.

There was previously also a self-contained unit that has now been connected to the house and turned into the main bedroom with ensuite.

The makeover also preserved the home’s original charm and infused every aspect with contemporary beach house chic.
