A dual level, luxury waterfront home on the Bellarine Peninsula will go to auction on January 22 with 100 per cent of its expected $1.35 million profits going to underprivileged children through an initiative with not-for-profit
‘Cottages by the Sea’.
Created in partnership with Victorian developer Moremac and local builder Boutique Homes on land at Moremac’s award-winning Point Lonsdale estate, the four-bedroom, two bathroom high-end home features freestanding baths, designer kitchen and two living spaces set across an elaborate and open-plan format.
A clean coastal palette guides the interiors, where abundant natural light, high raked ceilings and timber flooring set the tone across an expansive dining and entertainment hub featuring Ilve appliances, beer and wine
fridges, plenty of cabinetry and high-end finishes.
Set on a 540 square metre corner block with glistening waters of The Point’s winding canals to the West and park views to the South, the home enjoys a North facing backyard by TNLA Landscape Architects with outdoor patio and an in-built fireplace to enjoy during the cooler months.
Providing disadvantaged and under-priviledged children with exciting, inspiring and memorable holidays, Cottages by the Sea is the second oldest charity in Australia and offers camp programs at its coastal location to enhance the lives and opportunities of young people.
Cottages by the Sea CEO, Adam Wake said due to the impact of COVID lockdowns over the past two years, there has never been a greater need for programs to support children of disadvantaged backgrounds.
“Since the last lockdown in Victoria, we’ve had more children through our business than any other equivalent period in our 131 year history – with the divide between the ‘haves’ and ‘have hots’ ever growing,” said Adam.
“Currently within our Riptide building in Queenscliff, we can host ten children at a time. When we redevelop the place off the back of these incredible donations, we will have the capacity to have 500 to 700 more children through the program each year with the adequate funding.”
“We’re pinching ourselves! The home is nothing short of spectacular and its position within The Point, a stone’s throw from our main operations in Queenscliff, is just perfect.”
With hundreds of hours, over half a million dollars donated towards the project and over 45 supporting partners,Moremac Director Duncan McLellan said Moremac are proud to be part of a multifaceted team of professionals who all put in to support the charity’s mission.
“A lot of the children who go through the Cottages by the Sea are from the neighbouring Bellarine area and have had difficult circumstances fall upon them,” said Duncan
“24 Coquina Drive has come about from a collective of professionals coming together doing their bit, and has culminated in a home built on very optimistic, hopeful and well intended foundations. It’s our wish that both the
buyer and the charity reap the rewards of this.”
Aidan Hooper, Managing Director of ABN Group Victoria (of which Boutique Homes is part of), said the company is proud to have reached the milestone for the charity home and assisting Cottage by the Sea to provide a
long-lasting and positive impact on Victorian children and families.
“Boutique Homes builds hundreds of homes each year in the Geelong and Bellarine area, but we are especially delighted to see this beautiful family home come to life and to welcome prospective buyers through its doors,”
24 Coquina Drive is listed with James Gladman at Fletchers Bellarine and has a price guide of $1.35 – $1.45million. It is now open for inspection and is scheduled to go to auction on January 22 at 12:30pm, with kids’ activities and light refreshments available from 11.00am.
