It was hard for us to tell where the landscape ended and the house began! The breathtaking views and majestic location, the private beach and stunning architecture and design made us never want to leave.
A remarkable achievement in glass, light and space, this one of a kind home sits on a bluff overlooking Great Oyster Bay with unobstructed “forever” views. Surrounded by ocean and national parkland, this is a once in a lifetime spot that takes full advantage of the secluded location while creating both a contrasting and harmonious residence.
The bold, spare, metal post and beam construction paired with the endless walls of glass is an exhilarating living experience. The carefully selected decor and modern art barely interrupt the space but are just as bold with contemporary silhouettes and spirited use of color and animal print. The fireplace and heated stone floors bring warmth and relaxation while the outdoor decks and lounge areas take you away with the endless views.
Serene and modern, the home features three bedrooms all with handmade Stuart Houghton Tasmanian oak beds and floor to ceiling windows. One of the three baths features a truly unique, deep Huon pine tub, all with an abundance of natural light.
The fully equipped modern kitchen features all updated appliances where you can create memorable meals using the ‘Wursthaus’ gourmet mini bar provisions including delicious steaks, cheeses, olives, crusty bread, pasta and sauces and various breakfast provisions, or explore selections from the amazing range of local foods.
Equipped with everything you’ll need to feel at home, the Coastal Glass House provides every amenity including Wifi throughout, HDTV, Bose stereo system with surround sound, an interesting collection of DVDs and books from the library, personal care bath items and luxury linens with snugly robes and slippers.
There are numerous added items that you can use to enjoy the ocean and outdoor sports including backpacks, boogie boards and wetsuits while walking and tour maps will help you get there.
The two spacious decks and gardens include a BBQ and seating for eight to enjoy the amazing views. Full laundry facilities are also included.
The home can also be booked for events.
With just a short walk to your own secluded beach at the bottom of the path, this is a location that’s all about nature with direct access to hiking, fishing and roaming. Head to Swansea to enjoy the splendor of the east coast and be sure to visit Coles Bay, Bay of Fires, Freycinet National Parks and Maria Island. The Spikey Bridge, Kelvedon Beach and Kabuki By the Sea are all along the way on the Tasman Hwy.
Located on the eastern coast of the island of Tasmania along the Great Oyster Bay. Nearest Airport: Hobart International (2 hrs)
