The Point | Wye River offers the ultimate in luxury getaways along the Great Ocean Road in stunning Wye River, just 20 mins past Lorne.
The Point is a brand new and beautifully designed house with a modern, contemporary feel and stylish open plan living. A two year project by renowned architect 'Peter Winkler', The Point was completed in 2015. The house has expansive elevated views of the magnificent coast and surrounding Otways forest; in fact guests can enjoy spectacular ocean and native bush views from all rooms!
The living spaces have been designed to be elevated into the tree canopy, with views from the Living and Dining spaces of ‘The Point’. A central deck opens to a wet fern-filled gully separating the Master Bedroom and Ensuite from the main wing while also providing magnificent views. The home features 2 additional Bedrooms and central Bathroom, with Laundry and formal Entry below.
Features include low and high level windows within the Living, Dining and Master Bedroom spaces which allow East light to fill these spaces while providing a view into the base of the forest, and foliage above, the perfect backdrop for a relaxing getaway.
The property has a concrete sealed driveway to the front door entrance and a Dumb Waiter Lift to easily transport luggage and groceries to the upper level, a truly unique feature of the property. Private and tranquil, the house is situated right next to a creek which runs in winter - keep an eye out for glow worms along the banks at night time! The area itself boasts an abundance of local wildlife – some will even come to the front deck for a visit. Look out for koalas, kookaburras, king parrots and kangaroos to name a few. Southern Right whales visit the region from May to October with regular sightings along the coast.
The Point is only a short 10-15 min walk to the beach and popular Wye River General Store, serving beautiful coffee and food all year round.
