The first breath of sea air, when you step out of the car, is so invigorating and the beach is only 100 steps away with your own private access. It is semi-private as the property is set on 1 hectare of beachfront, with a safe swimming environment and beautiful, golden sand. Surrounded by native Banksia, extensive lawn area and garden, it is a bird’s haven, with a resident owl. Welcome to Uringah (Bird of the Sea), with a family history going back to 1897, a magical place.
Uringah is a set of 3 modern houses which are joined by a generous wooden deck. Each House has its own privacy with screens that separate the houses along the decking. Each house has its own unique features and is all filled with treasured memories from the original cottage which maintains the old world charm in the modern world.
Uringah 1 has 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and can sleep up to 7 guests. You can relax on the outdoor banana lounge, read a book, catch some rays or just snooze. Even in winter it catches the sun with the northerly aspect. When you enter the spacious living area through the large, glass sliding doors bringing the beachy feel inside with you, it will leave you feeling relaxed.
There are two seating areas which allow you to all have your own space in the open plan kitchen, dining and living areas. The kitchen is very easy to utilise with a great bench area, wall oven, glass cooktop and microwave. The best place to eat on a balmy night is outside on the deck and to cook up a feast on the barbeque.
There are a number of comfy lounges which face the gardens, where you can sit back and relax whilst watching a movie or playing one of the many board games. We also offer free NBN Wi-Fi. You can snuggle up on the couch in front of the log heater whilst sipping red wine from the region. Firewood is supplied. A split system is installed to help maintain a comfortable temperature inside if required as well as ceiling fans in the bedrooms. There are double glazed windows and roman blinds throughout.
The Master bedroom is upstairs and has a queen-sized bed facing the most stunning filtered views of Westernport Bay. Enjoy the sea view from the comfort of your bed or sit on the private balcony. A comfortable en suite is adjacent, with spacious shower, heat lamps, and extensive bench space with a long mirror. The second bedroom is very roomy with a king and single bed. The third bedroom with queen bed also has a wooden cot, change table and high chair available.
We hope that you enjoy your stay and find some magic during your time here as many have over the lifetime of this wonderful land. If you are lucky you may even see the resident owl.
