It would be hard to find a property with more heart and character than this home at 181 Pacific Highway, Charmhaven.
Bathed in blue, with the front fence made from surfboards and combi van murals painted on the garage door, the property is so distinctive that it was on the Hot Rod treasure hunt circuit.
“We looked out the front one day and there were these people in Hot Rod cars counting the surfboards,” owner Charn Cook said.

“Everyone knows the house – I’ve been to Queensland and people knew about it. The fence started off with a few of our boards, then people started donating more.”
Having purchased the property nine years ago, the vendors have changed it completely painting the walls in turquoise, blue, white and sandy yellow.
