We had no intention of selling, until recently, and earlier this year gave the ‘shed’ a makeover with …
– new venetians, entry and pull-down curtains
– floating floor in the kitchen
– new shiplap stained wall
– clothes line
– wall-mounted 42-inch TV
– replaced the barbecue with a 4-burner improved model.
– outside power access
Other features of ‘Sharpee’s Shed’ includes …
– covered outdoor cement-floor entertainment / dining / barbecue area w/ lighting
– carpeted bedroom area and downstairs annexe
– top-of-the-range reverse-cycle Actron air-conditioner
– futon that converts to a double-bed and 2 beanbags
– 4-seater dining table
– inside storage options and outside lock-up storage box
The van is a 23ft ‘Argonaut’ model with 7metre x 3.5metre steel annexe permanently attached on a 55.5 square-metre powered site. The van has been refitted to accommodate a stand-alone double bed (linen included), kitchen bench, cupboards, traditional caravan sink and gas cooking stove (crockery and cutlery included). The van space also has a medium-size fridge, microwave, kettle, toaster and other kitchen utensils (included).
‘Sharpee’s Shed’ is …
– 32 steps from the boat canal off Sussex Inlet. That means once you put your boat in the water, you can leave it tied up during your stays.
– 50 metres to the boat ramp and adjacent car park.
– a wedge from the Pelican Shores Cafe & Marina that sits on the water and serves first-class coffee, morning teas and lunches. You can also hire boats.
– the same distance to Jim’s Takeaway, offering daily newspapers and the best fish’n’chips, burgers and takeaway food in Sussex. Joan bakes dangerously delicious cakes and treats every day – and there’s an old-fashion lolly shop.
– it’s a 400-metre walk south along the riverbank to Sussex Inlet Bowling Club for more hospitality, including the TAB and traditional club restaurant.
– another 100 metres along you find a bigger boat ramp with fishing pontoon, car parking and RSL Park with playground.
From the pictures you can see that we were going to do more work to the outside area, but that’s now up to the new owner(s).
It’s a 5-minute drive, 10-minute ride, or 30-minute walk along the cycleway into Sussex township where there’s an IGA, RSL Club, hotel, churches, bakery, cinema, pizza restaurant, surf shop, bottle shop and well-stocked hardware store.
Now for the ‘big sell’ finish … if you are not a boat owner and would like to enjoy the fishing and swimming in the Inlet, I will throw in my 4-metre, flat-bottom tinnie, 2-stroke Yamaha motor, along with life jackets, fuel container, 2-stroke oil, padded seats, new oars, anchors and anything else that goes in / with the boat. It’s on the boat rack – 3 metres from the water – so all you do is throw it in and chug off to the fish. It’s no art union prize, but it will take you anywhere you want to go – as long as you are not in a hurry …
There’s NO shower & toilet because the facilities are 50 metres away, are always open, clean and easy.
Site fees – without electricity usage – are $1,290 per quarter.
Apart from our family photos, the van / annexe comes with everything listed in the price. We want $20,000 for the lot, but we are happy to discuss offers with serious buyers.
