Timeless home + guest house, with Merewether beach and ocean baths on the doorstep


Step into the elegant charm of one of Merewether's original architectural gems—an exquisite 1930s Californian bungalow nestled in one of the suburb's most coveted enclaves.

Designed for versatility, this beautiful three bedroom, three bathroom home, and separate guest house, is perfect for a growing family, multi-generational living, or as a home plus business.

The gorgeous abode retains the captivating hallmarks of its timeless Californian bungalow roots, while two considerate renovations, coupled with an extension to the rear and upper level seamlessly blend modernity with its cherished original charm. The property's flexible layout effortlessly transforms into a two bedroom, two bathroom haven on ground floor, and a one bedroom, one bathroom retreat upstairs.

The ground floor rooms have operated successfully as Merewether Beach House B&B for a decade, while the self-contained guest house has proven history as lucrative Airbnb accommodation. The beachside location, little more than 150m to the sand and surf, and just 300m to the iconic Merewether Ocean Baths caters brilliantly to the vibrant visitor economy of Newcastle as well as sporting and cultural events such as Surfest – the largest surfing event in the southern hemisphere.

Enveloped by a tight-knit beachside community of families and professionals, this property's enviable location is harmoniously matched with a laid-back lifestyle that resonates with many.
Start your day with a swim or dip in the Ocean Baths or join the Merewether Mackerels winter swimming club. With local cafes and the recently refurbished Beach Hotel close by, you'll seamlessly integrate into the vibrant community rhythm. Revel in the proximity of world-class surf breaks, invigorating coastal walks, and exhilarating mountain bike trails at nearby Glenrock.

Embrace the flexibility to either maintain the current status quo, enjoying the home as a thriving bed and breakfast along with an Airbnb venture, or make it your own exquisite family residence – the choice is ultimately yours!
