Like with all lighthouses perched atop cliffs with a guiding light to keep ship travellers safe, the Avalon Lighthouse is perched atop Bangalley Head and as its name suggests, this abundantly light home makes you feel safe as you watch the waves crash against the renowned Avalon Headland profile and look to the ocean beyond.
The approach to this home fills you with a sense of arriving somewhere that is very far away from the northern beaches with its accents of Africa, Morocco and Greece. Architect designed with heated concrete floors and a curved light filled stair well, this home is simply stunning in every way. Upon entering this beautiful and worldy space you are greeted by a sense of calm and feel immediately welcome.
The kitchen is the epicentre which has eye lines to the pool, dining/living area, covered outdoor area with wood fired pizza oven, garden and dramatic cliffs that greet the pacific ocean. A rumpus room with tv onlooks the pool and provides a separate area to watch tv.
There are 4 x bedrooms and 3 x bathrooms. The master bedroom has a completely private bath set in a glass window overlooking Bangalley Head. The three other bedrooms are on this level, one with ensuite and the others share a bathroom.
An outdoor shower is on hand if you choose to go for a swim at nearby Avalon Beach which is only a 5 minute walk away. So too are the North Avalon shops if you feel like a morning breakfast out at cafe Relish.
Although feeling miles away from anywhere yet close to Avalon, you will feel you have been guided through a delightful stay where you felt you were safely at sea or at the very least in an amazing home on the edge of a very beautiful world.
Wi-Fi + BBQ
Home quirks: the pool is heated in summer via solar but not during winter, the pizza oven takes a little while to heat fully and the home has no airconditioning as its position captures the delightful ocean breezes.
