Overview

About the property

100m to beach, undercover deck overlooking beautiful gardens and retro caravan

SISTER TO "LUCY'S ESCAPE"

Welcome to the new and excitingly exuberant beach house 'Portsea'! Sister to the extremely sought after 'Lucy's Escape' at Culburra. Named and designed with the famous beach boxes of Portsea Victoria in mind this newly renovated and custom built home has been painstakingly crafted with the holiday guest at the fore. Only 50m from direct access to beautiful Culburra Beach and situated in a street that is a member of the "Golden Mile" stretch, this delightful home awaits for you to make it your beach house!

'Portsea' is a wildly different home that has at its heart an enormous outdoor entertaining area that needs to be seen to be believed, 140 square metres of timber decking awaits you, facing north and receiving beautiful sun no matter what the season. Following the vibrant colours and designs of the beach boxes the rear elevation of the property is a replica of those boxes and each gable has been individually mastered with its own individual design and colour palate.

The first level of decking is completely undercover and is "all weather". It boasts a feature wall that is a handcrafted work of art using timber, colour and glass tiles, an enormous timber dining table, lounge area for coffee or breakfast, a BBQ with two gas bottles (always available), and a sink with running hot and cold water. Access to main living area is via huge glass sliding doors. Lighting can also be of your choice, 'SCG" lighting, romantic soft lighting or bunker lighting. Dining will be an exceptional experience no matter what the weather or time of day!

On the second level of decking you will find two by two sunbeds, just perfect for those lazy days in the sun or that "cheeky" afternoon nap. It is also where you will find the most amazing outdoor shower with privacy screen and an explosion of colour that will have you showering outside under the 'Milky Way' and with the fireplace roaring.

Speaking of the fireplace a bespoke, hand crafted open fireplace stands proudly on the third and final level. Built from 150 year old reclaimed bricks and with an outdoor bespoke dining table at its hearth many nights will be spent by the fire enjoying a quiet drink all watched over by 'Pete the Pelican'! (Small amount of complimentary timber and kindling supplied). This level also includes a 'Retro' caravan fully decked out with TV, bar sink, fridge and beanbags for simply "chilling" or a place for the kids to play.

All this is surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens and manicured lawns including your own orchard. Dog owners will also rest easy knowing that the rear garden is fully enclosed by brand new six foot fences and full length lockable side gates. No escapees! (Conditions apply to pets). (PLEASE NOTE: Any form of camping, tents, plastic inflatable pools, tarps, 'SLIP n SLIDES' etc are not allowed in garden under any circumstance due to possible lawn damage)

Internally the house evolves around a combined living/dining area that flows seamlessly onto the outside undercover entertaining area. It has quirky inclusions such as lead light feature windows and a feature wall lit by portrait lighting. A large comfy sofa, TV, Blu-Ray, DVD's and a stereo that is iPod and Blu Tooth compatible are supplied for your enjoyment, reverse cycle aircon for your comfort. A new and extensively supplied kitchen is part of this great space. Inclusions are full fan forced oven, induction cook top, microwave and dishwasher.

Sleeping arrangements for up to 8 have been catered for by one large master bedroom with its own gorgeous ensuite shower room and TV. Tastefully decorated this space flows effortlessly onto the undercover deck via a large sliding glass door, bringing the outside in. Reverse cycle air conditioning is also fitted in this room. A second queen room exists along with a bedroom that contains two low line bunk beds (Australian Standards) sleeping four.

All additional bedrooms are serviced by a generous shower room that also houses the integrated laundry. This includes washing machine and sink. All pegs, laundry detergent, basket, iron/ironing board and cleaning equipment are supplied.

'Portsea' has been meticulously crafted to enhance the stay of our guests. We take exceptional pride in our homes and what they offer including cleanliness and upkeep (see Reviews Lucy's Escape). The proximity to the beach and the local village, which includes Woolworths, is exceptional. We hope you choose to visit and possibly return!

An Incredible Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely, and the location was quite accessible to multiple beaches in Shoalhaven. We had board games to keep us entertained, and excellent utensils to cook our meals with. Ridiculously close to Culburra beach, our furry friends really enjoyed their stay as well. 10/10 would stay again!

Our family loved this property

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved this property, the small touches make all the difference! Our kids loved playing in the caravan and exploring the surrounding beaches. Our dogs enjoyed the spacious yard and swimming in the beach each morning. The owners are a pleasure to deal with, we will be back.

Perfect house! Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend away! Such a gorgeous house beautifully decorated and so clean! The owners have really thought of everything, kitchen fully stocked with everything you need. The huge deck was great, the kids had a fabulous time running around in the yard and enjoying watching movies in the caravan. Very pet friendly secure yard and plenty of room for our dog to run around. The location is perfect so close to the beach we could hear the waves from the house, we will definitely be going back. Thank you!
