Inspired by traditional African safari houses, the original cottage was built with sandstone “convict” bricks and sits on a solid concrete slab. The rear elevation captures never-to-be-built out views, with a north east aspect ideal for year-round living.
“The house has soaring 3.5 metre ceilings, parquetry floors and wood-burning fireplaces,” Mr. Bertram says.
“Two living areas, a formal dining room and sunroom make the house entirely liveable as is.
“It’s a magical place that needs a new family to love it, and with four bedrooms, two bathrooms and an internal laundry there is room for everyone.”
He says there is also an entertaining verandah, level lawn, courtyard and stairs down to the beach.
