A valley of peace and close to golden beaches
Is this country? Is this beach? Has it been lifted from the pages of a designer magazine? The Outlook Homestead is all these and more – a truly singular experience in a magical setting.
On an 18-acre estate of parkland gardens and farmland beauty, this homestead overlooks a magnificent wet-edge pool and a valley that falls away to beautiful Avoca Beach. The pool is 11m in length, solar heated pristine blue salt water. Sundeck chairs, tables and large umbrellas add to the resort atmosphere of the property.
The architectural style has maximised use of glass and piers, making the most of the views. Inside, a sumptuous interior of coastal style offers an open-plan layout with lounges, dining areas, kitchen and elegantly-dressed king bedrooms. A wonderful en-suite completes the picture for four of the bedrooms. Glass sliding doors can retract in summer to create a pavilion open to the ocean breezes. Outdoor eating areas are located on the veranda and by the pool.
Everything about this home and its gardens is grand. There is so much space indoors and outdoors. On a level above the house, is a small orchard - producing a range of citrus fruits.
Activities for children include a ping pong table, lawn croquet and games. The opportunities for activity are boundless. You can wander down the private valley, slip into one of four kayaks and paddle to Avoca Beach for dining and shopping. Terrigal is nearby and just over the road is a delightful fresh food and gourmet barn for goodies to enjoy by the pool.
High quality fresh produce is available on the opposite side of the road - along with newspapers and magazines, cheeses and biscuits, meats, dairy products, sweets and ice blocks. A coffee van sits outside the Fruit Barn from early in the morning.
The owners are farmers who moved to the coast, bringing with them sheep, cattle and horses that graze peacefully against the ocean backdrop. Chooks lay in the morning, so eggs are ready to collect by the early riser. The ping of bell-birds will be your chorus as you relax, revive and indulge at this elegant retreat.
"The Outlook Cabana" is boutique accommodation for 2, that sits close by to this grand homestead. These guests share the pool. This shared space is not an issue, as all guests divide their time between swimming in the pool and at the many local beaches.
