THE cool mid-century style of a classic beach house in Barwon Heads is what sold it to a young family looking for something different to their everyday home.
The Melbourne family fell in love with 93B Carr St and bought it for an undisclosed price within the price guide of $740,000-$810,000.

Bellarine Property, Barwon Heads agent Peta Walter said the buyers were after an “idyllic coastal beach house”.
“They wanted something a bit different to what they have in Melbourne and this ticked a lot of boxes for them,” Ms Walter said.
“They will use it as a weekender and holiday house and it was a combination of the location and style that attracted them to it.”
The three-bedroom beach shack has been transformed into a mid-century inspired coastal retreat on 481sq m of land.
