For those sparkling views of Wategos, make your way up the stairs to the second level or simply take the lift and you’ll find a vast open plan dining, kitchen and living area. Sink into the comfort of the multiple lounges in the living room as you enjoy uninterrupted ocean views. An outdoor kitchen, bar and stylish dining table takes care of lazy lunches and evening drinks, while the outdoor lounges cater to peaceful starry nights.

Whether it’s a peaceful walk or swim at Wategos Beach, or a relaxing meal at fabulous cafes or restaurants, you’re only a short stroll from it all.

Azure, Sunshine Beach

This luxurious, multi-award-winning home is set in the most spectacular location, with breathtaking ocean and coastal views.

With every imaginable luxury, you will love the impeccable attention to detail, as no expense has been spared in the creation of this extraordinary home, built by multi-award winning developer, Glen Watson.

The sleek architectural lines are offset with sophisticated finishes, cascading water features, lush, tropical gardens and stunning views.

Wollumbi Estate, NSW Southern Highlands

Seekers of seclusion and lovers of exceptional French provincial style will find comfort in this sprawling Southern Highlands property. Only 90-minutes from Sydney, Wollumbi Estate offers countless opportunities for rest and rejuvenation. Enjoy the luxurious charm of this grand homestead where superior design and a vast floor plan makes for an unforgettable escape.

Exposed timber beams, large open fireplaces, ornate ceilings, columns and splendid antique furniture combine for a truly opulent experience.

The authentic farmhouse kitchen houses a Carrara marble counter with gold gilded details and sits next to the main dining room. You’ll certainly have a memorable dining experience in this light-filled space with dining for up to ten guests, garden views and dramatic antique crystal chandeliers overhead.

A barn with a fire pit and a pool table will provide hours of entertainment, while there’s also olive groves and a vineyard to admire. For a fuss-free arrival and departure, the property also comes with helicopter access.

Shelly Beach, Mornington Peninsula

For a well-deserved seaside escape, complete with panoramic bay views, absolute beach front and a generous dose of Hamptons-style luxury, this multi-level Portsea beach house is the perfect destination.

The generous floor plan – which includes seven bedrooms and sun-drenched living zones – is ideal for families.

Captivating bay views will grab your attention as you step into Shelly Beach. The interior takes its cues from the coastal surrounds; deep blues, soft greys and whites and natural timbers, while the modern Hamptons-style design is warm and incredibly calming.

There are ample spaces for relaxation and the kids can enjoy hours of outdoor play. And of course, you have private access to the beach, just beyond the back gate.
