Scribbly Gums has been our much loved family home for the last eight years. As the name suggests, beautiful scribbly gums surround the house and we've spent many hours watching the local birdlife and wildlife play among them.

You'll find our home on a very quiet little corner of Berrara next to Conjola National Park and just a short stroll to Cudmirrah Beach at the end of the street.

The space
Scribbly Gums started it's life as a 1950's beach shack that was built by the father of the lady we purchased it from some 10 years ago. We needed more room to accommodate our family but loved the original shack and wanted to keep the feel of the original home. We kept the shack which is now the kitchen, living and dining and added three spacious bedrooms, a study, two bathrooms and a laundry.

Bedroom one has a Queen bed and it's own ensuite with separate bath and rain shower. Bedroom two has a queen bed also. Luxury bedding from Microcloud and linen sheets make it hard to get up for those early morning beach walks... Bedroom three has two long singles and there is a bathroom right next to bedroom two for guests in bedrooms two and three to share which has a bath with overhead shower.

The living and dining areas have french doors that open out to the north and to a covered patio with outdoor setting off the living area. We've spent a lot of time out here, reading the newspaper, enjoying meals with family and friends, drawing and painting and just watching the birds and the world go by.

The kitchen is fully equipped and has everything you'll need to prepare beautiful meals including a Smeg freestanding oven and a dishwasher. Or if you find the washing up therapeutic, look out the window while washing up in the double ceramic farmhouse sink.

The living area has a comfy lounge and there is ducted air conditioning throughout the house although you'll rarely need it. Recycled brick walls provide thermal mass that keeps the house cool in Summer and warm in Winter.

One of the things we love most about the house is that you can see green from every window. You'll really feel immersed in nature not only looking outside the house but inside too with lots of nature inspired artwork to enjoy.
