Wye River house description

Tottie's Place is an idyllic bush-meets-beach retreat that celebrates its natural surroundings. Perched high above the seaside village of Wye River, it has been designed to integrate with the trees around it, even if that means angling some walls a little creatively. The house itself is an inspired confluence of bold colours and natural tones that ooze contemporary class and fun – especially in its inventive use of an Australian staple: corrugated iron.

Inside this lofty modern home are all the necessities for a relaxing escape for up to three couples or a family of six. High ceilings and large windows bestow an airy ambience on the split-level living area, and most windows and the decking off the lounge command a breathtaking view down to the Wye River beach.

For outdoor types, grab a paddle board and head to Wye River's safe swimming and surf beach, go bushwalking in the surrounding hills or try spotting koalas in the trees. Wye River's culinary repertoire includes the Wye Beach Hotel and The General Cafe & General Store, and the larger towns of Apollo Bay (west) or Lorne (east) are an easy 20 minutes away by car.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About the owner: Owner, Mark Strachan, is a renowned photographer, having worked in over 20 countries for many clients and lecturing to industry leaders world-wide. He and his wife, Karen, created Totties Place to cater for their family's requirement for a simple yet exciting retreat for their 3 children. Frequent overseas travel and running 5 different companies (including a Plastic Surgery and 2 busy Photography studios!) has meant that they are unable to holiday at the coast as much as they used to. Hence this beautiful property is now available to others wanting a relaxing getaway.

                  Why the Owner Chose Wye River:
                  Both Mark and his wife holidayed at the camp ground in Wye River as kids with their own parents well before even meeting each other! Back in those days, we could only DREAM of staying in a beautiful Holiday Home overlooking the beach!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Great Views intercepted by frequent views of Koalas out the windows, eating eucalyptus leaves.
