Main Homestead | 4 bed | 2 bath | 4 car | Cottage | 2 bed | 1 bath | 2 car |
‘Baroonga’ has a driveway that beckons you forward revealing a vista so spectacular, you have to remind yourself to keep your eyes on the road. The South Pacific Ocean looms before you while native bushland stands beside you. Somehow, you’re looking out above the treetops, marvelling at how that stunning blue sea manages to meet that sky blue horizon with such perfect grace. The Main Homestead stands almost to the side of this beautiful view, as though it’s politely waiting for an introduction.
Baroonga is a property with personality. Each area adds to the sense of character and you find yourself wanting to linger, just as you would when you meet a new friend. It’s a property that has been carefully designed to maximise the beautiful views and thoughtfully built to accommodate the changing seasons. A generous wrap-around timber deck gives the place a homestead-feel and provides beautiful outdoor sanctuaries to be enjoyed ‘whatever the weather’.
Stepping inside, there’s a generous galley style kitchen that appears ready to serve your every need. Cross-flow ventilation (a design feature of this home) makes the kitchen a comfortable space to work within. It’s perfect for entertaining, for accommodating the family, for turning your hand to the latest creation featured on Master Chef!
Adjoining the kitchen is a spacious, light-filled lounge/dining area with large windows that bring the view of Short Point into the room. It’s a space that feels like summer and you can easily imagine the cricket on the tele while the beach quietly beckons...
Beyond the kitchen is a family room - a stately kind of room that speaks to the integrity of this property. The inbuilt centerpiece is an authentic, ducted Norwegian JØtul fireplace. Bespoke, cabinetry created from Sydney blue-gum frames the JØtul, creating a space to showcase your treasures and shelve your books. The JØtul has the capacity to heat the entire house and you will find yourself longing for a winter evening when you can sit by the fire and read.
Beyond these gorgeous rooms downstairs, you’ll also find two large bedrooms both with built in robes and doors leading out to the deck. There’s a tuck-away laundry, office nook, bathroom with separate toilet and plenty of storage.
Upstairs, the property reveals a quieter side to its personality. There is a parents’ retreat with master bedroom, Juliet balcony, ensuite and views. And then, there’s another room, a calm sort of space that seems to be Baroonga’s way of encouraging you to dream; is it a Library? A study? A sitting room? The possibilities are yours to contemplate.
Moving outdoors, Baroonga becomes the friend that encourages you to find yourself in Mother Nature! There’s a lawn so green and lush you’ll feel inspired to kick off your shoes and consider dancing. Lorikeets, rosellas and echidnas come and go from the garden where almost all the plants have been grown from clippings. There are shaded nooks, flower beds and vegie patches. There’s a compelling ambience to this outdoor area that adds another layer of character to this beautiful property.
Beyond the homestead and a little further down the driveway, Baroonga reveals a quaint little secret. There’s a cottage; two-bedrooms with a wood-fire, timber floors and filtered ocean views. There’s a timber deck and a beautiful garden with a pergola and a large leafy tree that was grown from a seedling and now has branches for climbing and shade for hot days.
This expansive property, set on 5.75 acres (with the potential to sub-divide), is a place for dreaming and imagining. Baroonga invites you to consider what life might be like... is this the opportunity for dual family living that you’ve talked with your folks about? Could you downsize your own work and rent out the cottage? Is Baroonga the place where your dreams of a health retreat will finally come to life?
Of course, when your friends meet Baroonga they’re going to be asking you about the property name. As legend has it, the name is a nod to an older property. There’s a yarn that’s told about the brothers “Onga” who frequented the “Bar” too often, drinking “Ouzo” to excess; hence “Bar-O-Onga”. Whatever the tale may be, you can be certain that Baroonga will quickly mean ‘home’ to you.
