Description

The Magney House is located on the pristine South Coast of NSW, 20 minutes drive south from the town of Moruya.

Completed in 1984, it is Glenn Murcutt's most famous house. Glenn Murcutt AO is recognised here and overseas as Australia's foremost architect. In 2002 he won the distinguished Pritzker Prize for architecture.

INSIDE THE HOUSE

The house comprises two distinct wings to the east and west of the communal courtyard.

In total, the residence sleeps 10 and is ideal for two families. There are 3 queen bedrooms and 2 single bunk beds sleeps 4. There are two kitchens with toasters, microwaves, electric kettles and saucepans, crockery and cutlery, and the courtyard with a gas BBQ for easy cooking.

The bunkroom is virtually a self contained kids area with table tennis and 2 bunk beds sleeps four. There is also a second large fridge.

THE SITE

The house is set on 33ha which is slowly regenerating from grazing farm land into natural bushland.

The location and design of the house exploit the northern aspect and assist in passive temperature control in summer and winter. The natural slope of the land provides protection to the south from the fierce weather brought onto the coast by the Pacific Ocean.

The roof line is iconic, as well as practical, catching the rainwater that fills the tank.

The design maximises the views of the surrounding beaches and distant mountains.

The house has been extensively viewed and photographed by architects and lovers of state-of-the-art design around the world, as well as featuring in a number of TV commercials. In 2009 it was featured on an Australian Post stamp.

The house and land are surrounded by the Eurobodalla National Park on three sides. The park is a haven for wildlife and displays diverse habitats.

Beaches: You are spoilt for choice as the area is surrounded by pristine beaches: Bingie beach on the north side of the Bingie Point headland, and Grey Rocks beach at the northern most reaches of Bingie beach are the closest beaches to the property and can be reached via a picturesque walk from the house.

Head over to Mullimburra Point take the left turn at the T-intersection for the charming Honey Moon beach with parking.

Drive to Congo beach to explore the diverse rock platform.

Nature walks: Bingie Farm property is right on the boundary of the Eurobodalla National Park. There are a variety of sign-posted walks within the Park to the north as far as Moruya Heads and to the south as far as Tuross.

Climb the hill behind the house and find a spectaular view as far as Montague Island, Mount Dromedary and Narooma to the south; to the north view Pigeon House Mountain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it We loved it. It was really interesting to see the house itself, and to get the sense of how it feels over a couple of days and how it responded to the weather - it does keep a very temperate climate inside. I found some photos of how it looked when it was new, and the Magney family has done such a lot of work on the property: it's quite different now, quite rich, and the wildlife love it too. They are very comfortable - it was very special to wake up to see kangaroos just outside the bedroom window. It is a beautiful area with stunning beaches, and we were lucky enough to see dolphins surfing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spectacular Bingie Farm How very fortunate to be able to stay in Murcutt's most iconic building, and on such a pleasant coastal property only 16kms south of Moruya. Six of us -- three adult couples -- stayed for three nights, and we felt like special guests. We quickly settled in, and could easily have stayed longer without getting bored even if it had rained. The light-filled, spacious double-layout of two well-equipped kitchens, two living areas, and two ensuites meant that we weren't in each other's faces -- a very civilized arrangement (we joined up every evening in the portico/atrium/barbecue area). One of the queen bedrooms is considerably larger than the other two and open-plan; while throughout the furnishings are attractive and comfortable. Linen/towels are an optional extra cost per couple (we opted for that), and guests need to bring their own toiletries/hairdryer etc. Local wildlife is ever-present -- think of waking up to wallabies grazing just outside, for instance, and a cheeky magpie who takes liberties -- but also watch out for ticks. All in all, we had a relaxed, happy and memorable stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent place to stay with family and friends The Magney House was the perfect location for our party of 5 adults and 4 kids. The separate living areas and games room for the kids provides lots of space for all. There are three queen sized bedrooms with games room doubling as a bunk room for the kids. The positioning of the house allows for fantastic views to be had from every room as well as the lovely outdoor entertaining area between the two wings of the house. It's an easy walk down to the beach, with many lovely walks in the area. We also loved that this property was pet friendly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic weekend away! We spent a weekend in June at The Magney House and had a fantastic time - we could not have asked for better accommodation. The house itself is incredible and sleeps 10 which is enough for our extended family - perfect to visit family in the area. And the property is spectacular - amazing views and so many kangaroos, the kids were beside themselves. We are looking forward to returning in the warmer months to enjoy the beach which is a 1min drive from the front gate (or a 10min walk for the not so lazy). Thanks to the Magney Team for making our stay so memorable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Unique Place to Stay We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this unique and iconic property. The architecture was instructive in many ways, and it was a great experience to spend a week in this building. The space worked really well for our group, and the study is a brilliant place for creative work! The kangaroos were a nice touch too. Thanks!
