On the Road with a view to the spectacula­r

Home site guarantees uninterrup­ted looks out over Bass Strait and Victoria’s legendary tourist route, writes Alanah Frost


Wake up to the warmth of the sun and views of the world renowned Great Ocean Road at this dreamy seaside abode.

Perched atop the southernmo­st point at Wye River, the striking two-storey “glass house” has an uninterrup­ted outlook across one of Victoria’s most soughtafte­r coastal locations.

Windows fill every spare inch of wall, framing the panoramic sea view like a painting. And an expansive balcony juts out over the undulating hills of the Great Otway National Park.

Only a short drive to the beach, the Wye River township and the pub, the property’s breathtaki­ng location has been dubbed “one of the best” on the coast.

Great Ocean Road Real Estate director Michael Coutts said the home was “not big, but perfect” for those seeking a slice of beachside paradise.

“It’s positioned right out on the point of Wye River — as far out as you can go,” Mr Coutts said. “It’s really private and literally has 360-degree views — it’s the only one on that point that looks in every direction, because the height of the property allows it to sit above the ridge line.

“The whole living area is totally wrapped in glass, it’s really light. It’s one of the best views on the coast, easy.”

Visitors to the compact modern home first step into the main living area, where a sleek kitchen and a dining and leisure space can be found.

They can then sit and watch the waves from the couch or a built-in window seat, or take in the tranquilli­ty from the balcony, which runs the length of the home.

Downstairs, light fills each of the three bedrooms, including a large main with an ensuite and a built-in wardrobe. A second bathroom and laundry are also tucked away on the lower level.

Outside, native shrubs surround a paved two-car driveway, while two large rainwater tanks capitalise on the area’s natural supply.

“It’s a low maintenanc­e, walk-in-walk-out property,” Mr Coutts said. “The view is really unique — and with crown land abutting the two boundaries, you’re only ever going to have one neighbour.”

The property was also only a 20-minute drive to Lorne, 30 minutes to Apollo Bay and easily accessible from Geelong and Melbourne.

He said the home, which was finished in 2018, would “be there for decades” given its sturdy build, comprising fireproofi­ng and weatherres­istant materials.
