Shearwater Haven is an oasis of excellence overlooking the Great Ocean Road. One of the hinterland’s finest properties, this striking home sits within a magnificent acre of gardens including a large orchard and enjoys uninterrupted northerly valley views from all the main rooms. Less than 1.5 kilometres from the foreshore, it is ideal for anyone wishing for a sea change or planning to work from home.
Architecturally designed and craftsman-built as a beautiful B&B, Shearwater Haven is a wonderful family home, capable of accommodating the wider family on holidays. It rests on the limestone cliff and the cultivated garden merges into native bushland.
The entry immediately showcases the expansive views. There is a spiral staircase to the mezzanine loft, as well as a wide hallway and spacious open plan living dining area. Superb cathedral ceilings add to the air of spaciousness. Large windows encapsulate the views in this light filled house and the cosy wood heater adds atmosphere.
Easy to live in due to superb functionality, the home offers four generous bedrooms with built in robes, three of which have ensuite bathrooms, plus the family bathroom. The conservatory is enjoyed all year round and makes the perfect breakfast room. A guest wing includes a private, fully self-contained living area opening on to a terrace. The loft is a multipurpose room, currently used as a fifth bedroom and office. There is a large attic storage area and under floor heating throughout the home.
Other enviable appointments include:
Floors tiled or carpeted throughout.
Dual purpose laundry with large purpose built craft section.
Spacious double garage with extra built in storage and direct access to the house.
