Entire home
You’ll have the house to yourself.
Seclusion and privacy with ocean views. Spacious three bedroom house hidden away on an acre of bush overlooking the Great Ocean Road. Relax on the balcony or in front of the open fire; walk in the bush or take a short drive to Lorne and the beach.

The space
Perched among the trees above the Great Ocean Road, you enter this architect designed house on the first floor from a huge north-facing deck. The first floor houses the master bedroom with en-suite and a shower "in the trees". There is a modern kitchen, a dining room (with an enormous dining table to seat twelve) opening onto the ocean-side balcony and a living room with a large jet master open fireplace.

A central staircase leads down to the ground floor and two more bedrooms - one with a queen bed and one with bunks. On the ground floor is also a second bathroom and laundry and a study. The study has a fold-out double sofa bed.

The house has floor to ceiling windows to make the most of the location, like a tree-house with ocean views. Open the large sliding doors to the balcony and deck and let the breeze cool those balmy summer days, or turn on the central heating and light the open fire after a brisk walk in winter. There are quality fittings throughout and original artwork on the walls. The property has recently been repainted throughout.

Note: We only allow a maximum of 10 guests at our property due to our limited water and septic tank considerations. Under no circumstances is 'camping' on the property permitted.

The house is ideal for one or two families with children. There is a cubby-house with toys, some kids bikes, plenty of grass and open spaces for games and running around.

Alternatively, the top floor is set up as a luxury one-bedroom retreat for a couple who want peace and tranquility with space for some guests.

There is a library of movies and lots of games.
