Whatmans - everything you expect from a modern beach house...
It's holiday time, so leave your worries behind and switch off.... have a drink on the deck or perhaps take a wander across to the sandy shores of Geographe Bay for a dip. Find some time to explore the nearby Margaret River wine region, or pop into town for a meal or coffee.
This custom designed North facing home is built right on the waterfront on Western Australia's magnificent Cape Naturaliste / Geographe Bay. It is just 2.5 hours south of Perth and a short drive to the famous Margaret River Wine Region. The bay at your doorstep is quite shallow and features crystal clear water and is perfect for families. At times of the year the beach will be entirely yours.
