Eleanora Gerroa, 2 hours south of Sydney ,is a waterfront property, unique in that you can watch both the sun rise and the sun set over the ocean. Panoramic, breathtaking, uninterrupted ocean views surround the house. The rear of the house overlooks Shelley Beach and farmland. Whales, dolphins, sea and birdlife abound. When present, the cows on the farm are a special treat. The front view takes in Seven Mile Beach, Black Head, the Crooked River and Berry Escarpment. The moon, stars and storms at sea, provide spectacular light shows over the ocean. The perfect place for relaxation.
We regularly receive texts from guests on arrival, with the common theme of being "blown away" by the views and location as well as the Guests Welcome pack. Most guests leave us a note on departure, saying..."amazing, stunning, refreshed, inspired, thanks so much, can't wait till we come back...."
Not only is the view and location stunning but the house is contemporary stylish and architecturally designed to bring the light, countryside and ocean to the inside. Every room has spectacular water views. The upstairs open planned kitchen/ dining/ sitting room is a very spacious room with 2 lounges ( one for TV viewing and one to watch the ocean) and a dining room table for 10. A gas log fireplace overlooking the ocean is a perfect retreat for colder weather. The kitchen has European appliances and a 4 metre stone benchtop. From this bench you can cook gourmet meals while taking in the views over 7 Mile Beach , the Crooked River and Shelley Beach.
Frameless glass balustrades enclose the rear and front upper decks to give uninterrupted views.The north facing rear windows bathe the house in light and warmth in winter. Downstairs the flooring is polished concrete, while upstairs is tallow wood. Three large luxurious bedrooms, each with water views and ensuite make this a perfect retreat for 3 couples.
