In an elevated position offering spectacular panoramic views, this Great Ocean Road Beach House is nestled on hectares of beautiful gardens & paddocks, surrounded by birds, wild life and a fresh spring-fed creek. Light the fire & relax to the sounds of the coast.
Old Tuxion Cottage offers 4 bedrooms plus a small spare room/games room with a fold down sofa bed. It comfortably sleeps 8-12 people (2 queen beds, 1 double, 1 set of bunks, all with electric blankets, and 1 double sofa bed1) and is ideal for large families, more than one family, large groups of friends or couples sharing.
There are two (2) bathrooms, both with old style deep baths, showers and toilet. The house is child friendly and accessible by wheelchair, although please note that it is not equipped with hand rails in bathrooms etc.
For meals and entertaining there is an expansive deck (partly covered) with an outdoor table setting for 8 people, as well as two garden settings for 8 people – take your pick: the coastal outlook or the garden. There is also a meals area adjacent to the “cottage kitchen" and a gas BBQ.
The living room is also spacious and has large windows/sliding doors opening onto the deck. There is a fireplace for winter comfort and a large TV, as well as a VCR/DVD player ad an iphone dock. A difficult choice: sit back and watch the weather roll in, the coastal views and action, the fire burning, or the TV – all within 180'!
The fully self-contained kitchen combines old and new. There are modern appliances such as an electric stove/oven, microwave and sandwich maker, as well as an old wood burner stove that is terrific in the colder months for heating, and for cooking homemade bread, roasts or pizzas!
Guests are welcome to explore the whole property.
