    Once upon a time, this delightful coastal dwelling was known as the Seabreeze Motel, and many special holiday memories were created within its walls. Located in the idyllic coastal town of Newhaven on Phillip Island, this unique lodging consists of six self-contained units, all with en suites, and two that have kitchenettes.

    Located metres away from the Newhaven foreshore, with views extending from French Island to the north and Coronet Bay to the east, this historical gem offers infinite potential as a residence, investment or holiday accommodation. Build upwards and watch the sky turn crimson over the bay as the sun rises over the Woolamai hills. Alternatively, convert the units into a single residential dwelling or cozy two bedroom units with living room. The spacious driveway also provides ample parking for the caravan or boat. There is unlimited potential for creative development.

    The residence sits on an approx. 511 sqm allotment. Beautiful camellias and hibiscus adorn the rear of the property, and a hidden fern garden at the front complements the peace and tranquillity that characterises this peaceful coastal town. Just a short stroll will take you to the Newhaven marina, jetty and local shops, including a grocery store, newsagent, bakery and the popular health spa, Island Healing. Access to the bridge is also located just off the main road, and if you fancy a quick jaunt on foot, you can take the pedestrian path to San Remo, with its unique shops, cafes, pubs, restaurants, an IGA and the San Remo Fisherman’s Co-op.

    For the nature lover, there are many opportunities for wildlife encounters. Just off the Newhaven jetty, find the resident seal sunbathing on the reef at low tide. Numerous shore birds and waders, including majestic pelicans, grace the beach and wetlands. The jetty also provides an ideal location for the fishing enthusiast.

    The Phillip Island Chocolate Factory and Churchill Island Heritage Farm are also only a short drive down the road, as well as the famous surf and bay beaches of Cape Woolamai. Public bus transport to Cowes is also available from the main road, as well as the V-Line service to Melbourne.

    A location that offers convenience and tranquillity at the same time is hard to find, and such a unique opportunity will not remain long on the market. Either as an investment opportunity, residence or holiday accommodation, this property has so much to offer for the creative visionary.
