Orange Grove sits on 3000 sqm of lake front property and was designed by local award-winning architect Ian Sercombe, to the highest standards of design and environmental living.
The main living/entertaining area has beautiful views on 3 sides with a fully equipped cooks’ kitchen, dining area and lounge. For those winter evenings you can curl up by the luxury log burner – hard to beat!
A second lounge/ chill out area provides a separate space to get together to watch a movie or for the kids to play. There are LOTS of movies of all genres plus books, board games, toys and a Play Station.
Both living areas open onto a deck that runs the length of the property with a formal dining table that seats 8 and bar stools for a more relaxed vibe - great for sundowners or beers by the BBQ.
The sunny terrace sits off the kitchen and has a fruit tree and herb garden, plus a hot and cold shower for rinsing off after a swim.
The first floor has 4 bedrooms along a central corridor bound by the rammed earth wall.
2 identical contemporary master bedrooms sit at either end of the house both with queen beds, a separate luggage/dressing area, desk and a balcony with beautiful views through the treetops.
There is a super cute bunk room which has built in wooden bunk beds with windows along their length that look out through the trees - the best spot in the house for kids to hang out nature watching.
A third bedroom has a queen bed and offers an interconnecting lockable door with the bunk room.
We are happy to provide up to 2 extra foam mattresses for additional children.
2 large family bathrooms serve the 4 bedrooms - with shower, bath and an amazing outlook it really is the loo with the view!!
A walk down steps through the rainforest garden brings you to a secluded lake front beach – great spot for fishing.
