A heritage listed two story federation home, Eleura was completed in 1907. The Guest room is upstairs with access to a separate bathroom, exclusive use of the upstairs former billiard room which is a large open area with fridge, couch, spare bed and Foxtel TV. You can press the working original butler's bell but sadly he is no longer with us! Use of the downstairs lounge room with piano and views of the garden. Eleura is part of the original Dendy estate subdivision. We have a large garden with private areas, a BBQ and side patio, and large rear garden with views of one of the original Brighton tower houses behind our home.
Enjoy our garden, and also we will give you a key to use our Brighton Bathing box as a house guest. Note the bathing box cannot be separately rented but is available for you to enjoy while you are booked to stay with us.
Guests can do their own thing but we have helped create the atmosphere for special occasions for guests staying with us such as a proposal (successful!) with champagne and strawberries at the Bathing Box. The Bathing box can be used as part of your stay for a special romantic occasion, or just set the bathing box up for a day at the beach with friends while you are staying with us.
We are part of the historic central Brighton surrouned on all sides by other heritage properties with large established gardens. You can sometimes smell the sea air from the garden and it is a short walk to Dendy Street Beach and the heritage listed Brighton Bathing Boxes. While you are our guest you can use our box which is right in amongst the historic bathing boxes and very close to our home. We walk to the beach each day to do our morning yoga. The neighbourhood is safe and friendly and there is no need for a car as everything is so close including public transport with a bus to St Kilda in front of our house and the train to the city just five minutes away in Church street.
Middle Brighton Station is less than five minutes away.
Bus to St Kilda (600)with a stop in front of the house.
Apart from English, we also speak Japanese (fluent ), Mandarin social only and Turkish (fluent) and are quiet a multicultural and well travelled family.
