'Few and far between': rare 1930s bungalow on offer minutes from the beach

This could be your chance to own a slice of Narooma history right in the town centre. The 1930s home features wonderful craftsmanship, ornate styling and is unique to the Narooma area.

Set on a 1091sqm block, 10 Tilba Street, Narooma, comes with four bedrooms, two bathrooms, period-style detailing and fantastic outdoor spaces.


Ben Bate Real Estate principal Ben Bate describes the home as "one-of-a-kind for the area".

“Around here, we have a lot of 1960s, 70s and 90s brick and tile homes, and recently we've been seeing the more modern contemporary-style homes, but period styles like this one are few and far between,” Ben says.

“The home has a lot of ornate detailing throughout, which has been popular among people inspecting the home.”


A white picket fence and beautiful front garden lead you to the front porch and welcome you into the home.

Soaring high ceilings greet you as soon as you step inside, with the original pressed metal finish on the ceilings, gorgeous timber flooring and leadlight windows highlights of the living areas.

The huge lounge room has a bay window and open fireplace, with french doors leading out onto the eastern side verandah.


A rustic-style kitchen comes with timber cabinetry, an original fireplace, gas cooking, a dishwasher and a huge pantry to provide all the cooking essentials.

Not far from the kitchen is a separate dining area with a stunning curved leadlight feature window.

Ben says the home has so many incredible features it's hard to choose a favourite.

“The stained-glass windows are stunning, the solid timber floors are beautiful, the home’s pressed metal high ceilings have been a favourite of those that have come through the home and the verandahs for outdoor living are outstanding.”


The home has four bedrooms (master with its own toilet and vanity) and a modern main bathroom. A study and office complete the inside of the property, while a massive rear verandah offers plenty of open space for entertaining. The well-maintained gardens are beautiful.

The fully fenced home offers rear yard access for cars or a boat/caravan, alongside a 2kW solar system to help with power costs.
