Flinders Bay House:
Where the living is easy
Rarely is the opportunity so richly appreciated as with the Flinders Bay House. The reason is simple – the Augusta home is focused on living well and does it on a scale almost unrivalled. Here’s why.
The $10 million Augusta home is located within walking distance of Flinders Bay with whale watching views from the upper floors. The sun-drenched house is designed in the classic style of a Hampton’s beach house with plenty of white woodwork, plantation shutters and sophisticated but comfortable furnishings. It’s a home designed for entertaining and the leisurely pursuits best enjoyed in the company of others – talking, eating, playing games and listening to music.
The chef-quality kitchen allows guests to create meals big enough to cater for the 16-seat dining table or small enough for a cosy meal in the kitchen. It’s kitted out better than most restaurants with multiple fridges, different kinds of ovens, a magnificent cooker, and even a separate cheese ‘cave’, to ensure every morsel of food and drop of liquid is perfectly prepared. The kitchen has the added bonus of a huge selection of cookbooks if you’re looking for culinary inspiration.
Two separate lounges are designed for comfort and pay homage to American culture. Bruce Springsteen fans are treated to memorabilia and books throughout, an indication of the easy style of the house. Four fireplaces – three indoors, one outdoors – ensure a warm reception no matter the weather.
The house has five luxurious bedrooms, all with ensuite bathrooms. The master bedroom boasts his and hers ensuites to ensure selfish indulgence in your morning or evening routines. A mermaid mosaic in the shower of the children’s bathroom creates a whimsical welcome for even the youngest guests.
Attention to detail is the name of the game at Flinders Bay House and guests benefit from extreme comfort. The home was purpose-built for entertaining and family holidays and the owners have left everything in the property to ensure you have the same experience they do. Whether you want to curl up with a good book, watch the sun set over the ocean or pull up a chair to a fabulous meal, this is the place to bring your favourite people and indulge in the good life.
For a truly memorable holiday in a picture-perfect setting, check out Flinders Bay House to discover a remarkable home for a fun and relaxing break.
