Wake to awe-inspiring ocean views every day, where the light of a thousand different sunrises & sunsets plays on the limestone walls of this architecturally iconic, award-winning property. Upstairs living boasts 360’ views, while a terrace beckons you from open plan living to the outdoors, for entertaining or moments of quietude. Set on sweeping lawns in Jan Juc’s finest address, this 4BR home is the ultimate house, in the ultimate location, set on spectacular clifftops overlooking Bass Strait.

The space
This unrivalled oceanside experience must be seen to be believed.

Inspired by sails, and the recipient of ‘The Age Public Award For Architecture (Beach House), ‘Saltwater’ is all about the experience, with facilities and amenities that complement the natural setting. Picture yourself waking to the sound of crashing waves, watching surfers below at ‘Steps’ surf break, and thanking yourself for indulging in one of the most unique, iconic properties in Australia.

The expanse of land in front of you, virtually tumbling down to the sea, makes you take a deep breath and stop to admire this spectacular coastline. Your field of view is so stretched that it’s impossible to see everything at once; from the silhouettes of landforms on the distant East Coast, to the far-reaching horizon and infinite sky. The vast ocean vista invokes rejuvenation for the body, mind & soul.

Tastefully decorated, with accommodation for up to 8 guests in 4 bedrooms, with 2.5 bathrooms and 2 living zones, this is the ideal setting for a memorable family holiday, a group of friends or executive travellers.

Entertainers will appreciate the well-stocked chef’s kitchen, with high quality amenities. The double St George wall oven, cooktop and double fridge, combined with world-class views, make meal preparation a delight. A distinctive granite island bench will be the site for sharing food and conversation, overlooking the 8-seater dining table. The mood of the house is constantly changing, as the elements set the tone of light and colour through high light windows onto limestone block walls.

There is space for everyone, both for lively communal gatherings and quiet retreat. The main living room has deep, comfortable leather lounge suites that invite you to curl up and relax with a great book, be mesmerized by the sea, or light the open fire and watch the ships go by...

Upstairs, the second living zone provides a tranquil retreat and observation tower, with even more expansive ocean and coastline views. Your line of sight extends all the way to Port Phillip Heads and Cape Schanck in the east, and across the Jan Juc hamlet and bushland to the northwest. Set up with bean bags and a Smart TV with Netflix, this is a perfect teenage refuge.

Imagine cooking a BBQ on the terrace, relaxing with drinks and reflecting on long days spent at the beach or exploring the region... Recline on sun lounges or chase the sun by utilising a stone outdoor setting in the north garden. The property is fully fenced, and kids and pets (well-behaved pets only, subject to approval at time of booking enquiry) will love playing on the sweeping lawns, amongst native gardens, with a back gate that joins the Surf Coast Walk.

All four bedrooms in the east wing embrace the views, with floor to ceiling glazing framing unhindered ocean views. A King size bed in the Master is the ultimate place to wake up to sunrise over Bass Strait, or fall asleep star gazing. This room has a walk-in robe and a large en suite with frameless shower, toilet and bidet.

All rooms have an abundance of natural light, and are beautifully appointed with luxury hotel quality sheets and bath towels, making your stay as pleasurable as possible.

Features include: Wifi, 2 x Smart TV’s with Netflix connectivity, ducted heating, an open fire and 3 split system air conditioners in the dining & living areas.

Only minutes from Jan Juc’s surf beaches, village shops, cafes & restaurants, you will soon immerse yourself into a lifestyle that enjoys a relaxed slower pace and a great community vibe. A short drive in either direction will have you surfing Bells Beach or wandering Torquay’s shops and Surf City Plaza.

Seamlessly connected to nature with commanding 360’ views from upstairs, here you are at one with the sea & the sky. You will feel the energy of rolling groundswells that have marched across the ocean’s surface for days to reach the reef breaks below, wooing surfers from around the globe to ride the waves of Bells Beach, Winkipop and the waves in your own backyard. ‘Saltwater’ offers holidaymaker’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to live the idyllic coastal dream during your time on Victoria’s Surf Coast, at the start of The Great Ocean Road.
