A spectacular secluded sanctuary awaits….

Picture yourself holidaying in one of Jan Juc’s most prized positions, in close proximity to the Bells Beach surfing reserve. The sound of crashing waves marks the Surf Coast’s best waves, just a short stroll away, where clifftop tracks lead you to Bells or Torquay. Take in ocean & treetop views from private bush surrounds, where entertaining & relaxing take place with north living & decks, that features a large outdoor fireplace.

The space
This high-calibre 5 bedroom home offers a supreme lifestyle experience. In harmony with the bush and the beach, this location offers you the tranquillity and privacy of the bush, coupled with close proximity to the world-famous Bells Beach . The Jan Juc Village shops & cafes are nearby, with the main shopping & dining precinct a short drive or protected bike ride along the cliff path away in Torquay.

Be inspired by this oasis, set within a 5218m2 allotment of landscaped grounds & Australian bush, with facilities and amenities that complement the natural setting. Picture yourself taking in sweeping views across Jan Juc bushland & the ocean, with silhouettes of landforms on the distant East Coast including Pt Nepean & Cape Schanck. A wealth of floor-to-ceiling windows flood the stylish interiors with warm natural light all day long, with no shortage of vantage points to relax and admire the spectacular views.

Beautifully decorated, the spacious floorplan boasts high ceilings throughout with accommodation for up to 11 guests in 5 bedrooms, plus 2.5 bathrooms. Multiple living areas over 2 stunning levels make this the ideal setting for a memorable family holiday, groups of friends or executive travellers.

Entertainers will appreciate the well-stocked chef’s kitchen, with high quality amenities. The 900mm oven, gas cooktop and coffee machine, combined with world-class views, make meal preparation a delight. A distinctive island bench will be the site for sharing food and conversation, adjoining a sizeable dining area.

There is space for everyone, both for lively communal gatherings and quiet retreat. Both of the ground floor living rooms have comfortable lounge suites, the main open place area complete with a 65” Smart TV, split system heating & cooling, & direct flow to the outdoor entertaining zone with dining for 10. Alternatively, in the second downstairs living light the open fire, curl up and relax with a great book, and be mesmerized by the views of the pool, bush & beyond.

Upstairs, the third living zone provides a tranquil retreat, perched up high 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 lounges, a 50 inch TV, DVD, and gaming console, this space flows straight onto an expansive covered upper deck, with outdoor lounge to take in the breathtaking 270’ views.

This place has it all for entertaining and relaxing! The north-facing alfresco entertaining area includes a built-in BBQ and sink for convenient holiday entertaining. In the summertime, recline on sun lounges by the pool and spa. As the sun goes down, make the most of being in the great outdoors by toasting marshmallows in the large outdoor fireplace.
