Australian Traveller Magazine’s 100 Great Australian Holiday Homes
This chic three-bedroom property in Port Elliot wouldn’t be out of place in the Hamptons, Long Island’s playground for America’s rich and famous.
The interior decor is monotone and modish, a calm oasis of neutral colours, crisp white linens, sleek black plasmas, sparkling silver appliances and cool marble work surfaces.
In summer there’s a vast spotted gum deck for entertainment, plus several nearby surf beaches, bike trails and coastal walks with stunning views of the Encounter Coast.
During the colder months, guests have the whole of the historic Port Elliot area to explore, with its picturesque Horseshoe Bay waterfront and every kind of dining establishment on hand, from bakeries to gourmet restaurants.
Or, if you’re feeling less adventurous, there’s always the option to just sink into one of the designer sofas in front of the remote-operated fireplace and catch up on all those movies you haven’t seen from the house’s extensive DVD library.
