Australia's coastline is dotted with incredible properties overlooking the ocean and boasting 'coastal relaxation' at it's best. If you're along the well worn tourist path of the Great Ocean Road in between Fairhaven and Lorne, Ocean House is absolutely the one for you. Just 100m from the shore of North Lorne's secluded beach, Ocean House is an architectural beauty with four levels and five bedrooms, perfect for a luxurious couples getaway or a group celebration.

The most striking parts of this home are the combination of earthy, raw materials together with sophisticated warm accents. The raw concrete walls are matched by weathered polished timber on the ceiling and cabintry. The carefully chosen furniture and accessories however elevate these materials with their soft, plush fabrics and finishes. The floor to ceiling windows of the property bring the beauty of the Australian bush inside, adding the unexpected element of colour in a predominantly monotone interior.

We can't forget to mention the view. There's something so zen about being able to see the ocean from every angle; when you're drinking your morning tea, toasting a celebration at dinner or sitting down to relax before bed. It's one of the most relaxing and reliable traditions of the Australian getaway, and Ocean House delivers on this through much more than just it's name.
