Perched atop Dover Heights’ romantic cliffs, this ocean-facing retreat whispers tranquility.
Enjoy breathtaking ocean views from almost every vantage point, whether over morning coffee at the breakfast bar, enjoying dinner on the sunken deck, winding down with a glass of wine on the alfresco top deck or luxuriating in the Japanese spa as the day fades before your eyes.
Architecture by the renowned Walter Barda, inspired by the Byron at Byron Health retreat, the home captures the essence of the location, as polished dark hardwood floors are offset by sleek white furnishings with waves of neutral colour, combining the finest in nature and luxury. The contemporary Australian motif is completed with artworks by Max Dupain and the late artist Brett Whiteley, whose intricate surrealism was influenced by his mentor Francis Bacon.
Guests will love the outdoor meditation retreat, the stone-fenced hidden garden resplendent with honeysuckle, fig, ginger, flowers and herbs, along with the rumpus room and studio lounge room with open deck backlit by the eastern facing ocean vista. Upstairs the Master bedroom features an open en-suite with freestanding bath that also looks out across the Pacific, and three smaller bedrooms share the second bathroom. The Queen bedroom is situated downstairs with its own separate bathroom.
What the Owners Love
Watching the whales migrate up and down coast, relaxing in the Japanese spa and enjoying a massage/treatment to the sound of the ocean. You could cook up a storm with state-of-the-art kitchen appliances and a sound system to match- but if you’re not in the mood, eat out, or dine in. Only a short ride to some of eastern Sydney’s finest restaurants, such as Catalina Rose Bay and Bondi Icebergs or if you can’t pull yourself away from the view, have our concierge arrange for a top Sydney chef to create a personal experience for you without leaving the house.
