BUILT in 1876, Woolamai House on Phillip Island is a significant piece of Bass Coast history, and is now up for sale.
The house has been kept in excellent original condition, and combined with the modern luxury of an award-winning extension by architect Robert Simeoni, it makes for a luxury seaside getaway that would be hard to top.
Bay windows, dark timber flooring, plantation shutters and a water well are among the immaculate heritage features of the historic house, while the modern lines of the extension have been skilfully designed to fit in with the colonial homestead, earning Simeoni the RAIA award for architecture in 2004.
Retired sea captain John Cleeland built the house with a spectacular view, so he was able to keep an eye on the ocean, and the lookout tower of the original building has carried over to an expansive rooftop viewing platform on the extension.
The 1.6ha property is less than 150 metres from the spectacular coastline of the Bass Strait, and there is little chance of missing out on the view in the light-filled extension with expansive floor to ceiling windows, polished concrete floors, high ceilings and open kitchen and living wrap around.
With six bedrooms including the magnificent master suite, four bathrooms, two kitchens and endless indoor and outdoor living areas, this is a unique Phillip Island property.
Located just 90 mins from Melbourne CBD, Woolamai House offers the purchaser a significant and unique ocean retreat.
