Blue Salt Gerroa is a luxurious hillside beach house with spectacular, uninterrupted views of the ocean, beach and river. The house is very elevated and the views can be seen for miles from two large decks and internally through 16 metres of glass panels and doors. All living areas enjoy postcard views through these floor to ceiling glass doors, which open to the decks. The view of ocean, beach and river commands your attention and takes your breath away. Blue Salt is located within short walking distance of and overlooking the famous 12.5 km Seven Mile Beach. Nothing is so relaxing as watching and listening to the waves rolling in and observing the ebb and flow of the tides. The house is free standing and set back on the block so that sweeping views are maximised. As a result of being well set back from the road you do not look directly into neighbours homes and privacy from the street is maintained. This house due to it's view and elevation has been referred to as the jewel in Gerroa's crown.
Blue Salt has spectacular panoramic views specifically of the Pacific Ocean, the Seven Mile Beach and the Crooked River. Adjacent to the house is the view over the Seven Mile Beach National Park, the mountains, escarpments 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.
