Relax in this enchanting mud brick cottage, cut deep into a lime stone hill, surrounded by parkland, set amongst the natural beauty of its coastal location. The whole house is yours to enjoy.
A sustainable home built in the 70's, it's here you will discover a beautiful mixture of natural and recycled materials from rammed earth walls, to exposed wooden beams, to vintage Telecom Phone box doors.
On a winter's night, indulge in a book, in-front of the pot belly fire, where the smell of soup simmers and the sound of the tea pot whistles. The unique handmade lights, switched by a pull cord creates an array of moods, from the orange Indian bracelet pendants draped by the fire place, to the wagon wheel light suspended above the 10 seater canteen dinner table.
The master bedroom has a queen size bed and TV/DVD, adjoined by a rumpus room featuring a day bed, TV/DVD, where the kids can retreat to. Further down the hall, opposite the laundry, you'll discover another bedroom with hand-made Queen Size Bunk Beds.
The fully equipped kitchen includes peculated coffee grains and a coffee plunger, basic pantry items and a split system. It adjoins a stylishly furnished open plan living and dining area. The roof conceals a loft ladder, which pulls down to reveal a fourth white ambient bedroom, featuring a queen size bed and TV/DVD.
A 15min -30min stroll will lead you to many local attractions in Ocean Grove, including the Surf Beach, River, Lake, Golf Course and the Main Street filled with award winning cafés and restaurants. Bikes and boogie boards are supplied, so peddle your way around, catch a wave, stumble on a winery or two, visit the local berry farms. Who knows what you'll discover.
After a day of exploring the endless attractions, come back and fire up the Pizza Oven, whilst the kids explore the playground. Or simply relax in the hammock listening to the birds and the sounds of the waves.
