St. Cloud is not your standard beach house... Enjoy uninterrupted views of Port Phillip Bay, cook up a storm in the beautifully appointed kitchen, make pizzas on the second story deck, lounge in the luxurious bath tub, play some backyard cricket on the lush rear lawn, or walk down to stunning McCrae beach. Architecturally designed, St. Cloud is a stunning property - equally perfect for a romantic weekend for two, or an extended family getaway for ten!
St. Cloud is a truly unique home. Architecturally designed to enhance the bay views, afternoon sunshine and lovely peninsula breeze, this five bedroom beach house will take your breath away with every turn. Using specially made louvered windows, floor to ceiling glass, plus an electric awning, air conditioning, ducted heating and a fireplace, you never have to forsake the view for comfort. Within the home are three separate living areas.
The main lounge is a stunning glass filled space on the top floor that opens onto a large deck with uninterrupted views of Port Phillip Bay, the perfect spot to watch the ships languidly move across the horizon while the iconic lighthouse gently glows in the night sky. Downstairs is a cozy and more tranquil space, perfect for some alone time which is why we’ve furnished it with comfortable couches, a selection of New Yorker and Monocle magazines, and a carefully curated selection of books. To the rear of the bottom floor is a more informal lounge, perfect for rowdy children with giant beanbags, a selection of games and a second television. This lounge leads onto the back rear deck, and through there onto the expansive yard.
The kitchen has everything a serious cook needs to make some serious food (and given the produce of the peninsula, why wouldn’t you!), a five burner gas stove, large family sized fridge, a coffee machine, walk in pantry (with microwave) and plenty of boards for the cheese platters you’ll be whipping up. There is plastic plates and cutlery for little ones, and lovely glasswear and knifes for big ones. If you like to cook to an audience, there are eight stools nestle into the large marble counter top, and a small corner with two large black leather chairs for a smaller gathering. The dining table seats eight (and eight can eat at the kitchen bench), while the outside deck sits another eight beside the Gasmate Di Gusto five burner barbecue with pizza oven! The lower rear deck has more informal seating for a more casual evening meal.
