Welcome to Blue Salt, a beautiful Gerroa hideaway, gracing an enviable hillside position, encompassing spectacular panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, the Seven Mile Beach and the Crooked River. This 180 degree view can be observed from the elevated decks and living areas of Blue Salt and from the bedrooms. Adjacent to the house is the view over the National Park, the mountains and green rolling hills which stretch out to two magnificent headlands, Beecroft Peninsula and Black Head. Beecroft Peninsula cliffs can be seen clearly from the house and the iconic Mount Coolangatta forms a significant part of the view. At night Point Perpendicular Lighthouse can be seen flashing it's light on the horizon. The house is located very near to the Seven Mile Beach and it is only a short walk to the beach.
Blue Salt is a private, spacious and luxurious home . It is contemporary and elegant in style, having versatile, multi-level living areas. Most rooms enjoy postcard views through a 16 metre glass frontage, with sliding doors opening onto two large entertaining decks. A major feature of the house is the massive upstairs open plan living area and deck directly overlooking the Seven Mile Beach and large separate living/lounge room with garden views. There are four bedrooms two of which are master bedrooms with queen sized beds, ensuite bathrooms, balconies and water views. The third bedroom has a queen sized bed and bathroom next door and the fourth bedroom has two single beds and water views.
The house has a north-south aspect with the major living area and three bedrooms with the water views facing south. This aspect and ocean breezes make the house cool in summer. The wood burner creates warmth and atmosphere in winter. The house is equipped for all seasons.
The house is set amongst trees and greenery. Rainforest Hill, a natural sub- tropical rainforest, can been seen directly through the kitchen window. Sub-tropical vegetation appears near the house attracting a varied and colourful bird life.
From the upper deck colourful sunsets can be seen to the west behind Mount Coolangatta. You can also watch an electric storm that hits the coast with all it's drama, sight migrating whales and dolphins or observe a lone surfer tackling the waves or a fisherman throwing a net from his boat in the early morning. Or you can simply watch the ocean and enjoy the sight and sound of the waves thrashing against the beach.
Try taking a leisurely swim or windsurf at Seven Mile Beach or paddle your canoe along scenic Crooked River. You can fly a huge kite on the beach tossed to and fro in the wind or visit the many fishing sites. Take a long walk as far as you wish along Seven Mile Beach-surrounded only by National Park and beach. Enjoy the eateries and wineries of the South Coast whilst visiting the nearby historic townships of Kiama, Gerringong and Berry. If you wish to eat very locally you can walk to the well known Gerroa Boat Fisherman's Club or walk to the Blue Swimmer Restaurant and Café, outstanding eatery, overlooking the river and surf, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The General Store is also only a short walk away. Go bushwalking in the National Park or coast walking to Gerringong or Kiama. Sir Kingsford Smith Lookout and Tribute is almost next door and details an important event in the history of Gerroa. Gerringong Golf Club and Boat Ramp for fishing and surfing are nearby. Enjoy cycling on roads or tracks or go sailing. Collect shells at the atmospheric Black Head where waves thrash against the solid rock platform and cliffs and fishermen dodge high tide.
