About This Listing
SECLUDED, SUPERBLY LOCATED & STYLISH - 1.5 hrs from Sydney, this beautifully restored and renovated iconic 60's Australian beach house has all you could wish for. With everything supplied for a truly luxurious & relaxing stay, simply lie back and drink in the beautiful surrounds, or be as active as you choose. Only 1 minute stroll from dog-friendly Werri Beach and its beautiful headland walks to the north & south, this fabulously styled & designer-decorated 3-bedroom rambling bungalow backs onto serene Werri Lagoon, with its abundant birdlife and views of rolling green hills and distant mountains.
Large yard, fully fenced for your pets' safety, and moments away from leash-free area of the beach - dog heaven!!
With a north-easterly aspect, Salt Cottage enjoys cool cross-ventilation in summer, catching the sea-breezes from its many louvred windows, sliding doors and French doors, whilst also capturing the warm winter sun. Large decks on 3 sides of the house look onto lush gardens and the lagoon at the rear, which may be explored with the canoe from the house's private pontoon. Fall asleep to the sound of waves breaking on the nearby beach...
2 separate indoor lounge rooms, each with flat-screen TV/DVD player Netflix too, one outdoor lounge area, plus various other outdoor seating and alfresco dining options on the wrap-around verandahs and in the gardens, allow for both happy socialising or quiet contemplation.
