Dust off your flares, grab a pina colada and crank up the Bee Gees … a gem of a 1970s retro home has hit the market – providing the perfect space for beach parties.
Located just a short walk from the pristine Victor Harbor coastline, 11 Heggerton St McCracken is set on a spacious 910sqm block that takes in every inch of the views available.
A large living/dining/kitchen area, perfect for entertaining (fondue parties anyone?), has elevated views over the ocean to Granite Island and The Bluff.

SUBURBS TO WATCH IN 2019
Toop & Toop Real Estate agent Matt Kenny said the circa 1970s three-bedroom home was proving popular with potential buyers due to its stunning original condition.
“We had a good turn out for the home’s first inspection on the weekend,” he said.
“People thought that it was a really nice example for its era, it’s the sort of place you might modernise but you’d want to be in keeping with the style.”
Mr Kenny said although the property had redevelopment potential, buyers were mainly interested in keeping the retro feel of the home.
“There’s potential for subdivision, you could fit two properties,” he said.
However, Mr Kenny has an inkling someone will fall in love with the property and keep it as is.
A classic example of 1970s architecture and styling. Features include wood panelling, retro terracotta-toned kitchen tiles, a quirky built-in breakfast bar and exposed beams.
The floorplan includes a dedicated games room attached to an informal family room in addition to the open-plan living space. There are also three bedrooms, the main with an ensuite, a walk-in wardrobe and ocean views. There is also a dedicated storage space and a partially enclosed alfresco area.
Interested buyers will need to get their (roller) skates on though – the home is set to go to auction on Sunday, January 20 at 11am.
Mr Kenny said the vendors elected to hold a short marketing campaign in the hope of attracting a cash in hand buyer.
It is being advertised with a price guide of $1 million to $1.1 million.
