A rustic, charming and character filled house, built in 1927 as the original Balnarring farmhouse. Despite this old-world allure it has every modern convenience, from pool to table tennis pavilion to the best equipped kitchen and is the perfect destination for family groups, with three separate sleeping wings. The beach is only metres away down a private path and the enormous verandah has spectacular views of Westernport Bay and Balnarring Beach.
It has hydronic heating in all rooms, airconditioning in the upstairs area and fans in the lower rooms. There are large fire places in the lounge and dining rooms. The kitchen is a large farm style with granite benchtops and the latest appliances, including a Nespresso machine.
The swimming pool is solar heated and 1.8m to 1m in depth, with a shade sail in summer. Alongside the pool is a large grass strip perfect for cricket and soccer games.
The house has its own private path to the beach. The beach is very safe and ideal for young children. 300 metres around the corner, Merricks offers good surfing and Point Leo (10 min drive) is rated the safest of the top ten surf beaches in Victoria. Balnarring Beach has won the "cleanest beach" in Victoria many times. It has a combination of rocks (ideal for fish and snorkeling) and safe swimming. Western Port Bay is a large tidal bay in southern Victoria, opening into Bass Strait. It is the second largest bay in Victoria.
Palmers Hill is the perfect location for family gatherings. It is not appropriate for parties and we do not accept bookings for weddings, parties, schoolies, etc. All guests are asked to be considerate of our neighbours and noise and music must be kept to a minimum in the evening.
