The Avalon Lighthouse is perched atop Bangalley Head, located between Avalon Beach and Whale Beach on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. It’s not exactly a lighthouse, but the amply-lit home is a restful sanctuary for the weary soul.
The Avalon Lighthouse: A Restful Beacon For The Tired Soul
Overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the home features floor-to-ceiling glazings that allow as much light in during daytime as it does out at night. An architect-designed interior littered with accents of Morocco and Greece welcomes guests to a space reminiscent of calm vantages from the Santorini and vibrant character of the Blue City. Equipped with heated concrete floors, the space is even more welcoming as guests may find a curved stairwell where sunlight pours in during the day, winding up to the rest areas on the above floor.
At the center of the space lies a kitchen complete with an island for guests to whip up a storm, or just to gather around for little sit-downs. The kitchen eye-lines the private pool and living area which expands to a sea-breezy outdoor terrace with a wood-fired pizza oven and garden patio for those perfect sunset gatherings.
The house offers four bedrooms, with a Master Suite from which a panoramic view of Bangalley Head can be taken in from both the King bed and en-suite bath.
An outdoor shower adds a touch of convenience and hygiene after a swim at Avalon Beach, which is a mere 5 minute walk away. The North Avalon shops are also along the way, where a local favourite cafe Relish is a delightful brunch spot. With the Bangalley Head Walking Track at the doorstep, the more adventurous can take a little hike up the headland which offers a spectacular view at the ascend.
Incidentally, the pool is heated in summer via solar energy but not during winter. Air-conditioning is absent in the home that captures the ocean breeze. It is available at a default nightly rate of $2,000.
