Features in depth

Architectural Simplicity

Escarpment House is compact, simple, and yet suprising spacious. Full-height ceilings echo the pitched roof and reflect the elegant geometry and pared-back aesthetic. Natural materials throughout connect you to the landscape. Living room frames a picture-perfect view of the pastoral landscape: dairy cows, farmhouses and the mountains beyond. Large copper shutters fully close to direct sunlight and create a more intimate space. The lounge features designer furniture, Ergofocus fireplace and TV with streaming. A fully appointed kitchen with oven, dishwasher and Nespresso machine means you can nest, while the large table provides room for friends and family. The shared bathroom features a rain shower and luxury bath with ocean views.

Panoramic Outdoors

Indoor-outdoor living takes on a whole new meaning. With decks on both sides of the kitchen-living space, and glass doors that completely slide away, Escarpment House doubles in size on summer days. The north deck takes in views of the mountains and pastoral landscape. The south deck captures the ocean and features bench seating and a plunge pool with glass edge. Plus, bedrooms and bathroom all open up onto the south deck – step out first thing in the morning, watch the sunrise and take a dip. From sunrise to sunset there is an outdoor space waiting for you.

Relax and Revive

Slip into the luxurious bathtub and watch the waves crashing on the shore, or plunge into the pool with a loved-one. The fireplace and intimate setting are perfect for a couples getaway or small gathering. Escarpment House is simple and cosy, with the right amount of space to unwind and go ‘off-grid’.


Dovecote is yours for the duration of your stay. Explore the property, seek out hidden rock pools and swimming holes, walk the pastures, and meet the dairy cows. For the surfers and swimmers, Werri Beach is a short walk down the hill, while nearby Werri Lagoon is a stand-up paddleboard adventure waiting to happen. Climb the hill at sunrise and experience panoramic views from the mountains down to the ocean. Or for the homebody, the outdoor living spaces and framed views mean you can spend all day in the pastoral landscape without setting foot beyond the threshold.
