Built with natural materials
Thalia was built from East Coast stone. Massive weathered beams inside the house were recycled from a heritage bridge, steeped in history. A single colossal stone block crowns the living room fireplace. Black limestone floors retain the sun's warmth. The taps for the outdoor bath rise from an aged branch of Huon pine. Powered entirely by solar and wind energy, Thalia was created with attention to detail, from playful touches in fittings to antiques and folk art gathered during the owners' overseas travels.
The living area views
The living room overlooks the granite peaks of Freycinet, Schouten Island and the set of islands known as the Hen and Chickens. The wall of windows opens fully to allow the sounds and smells of the sea into the living room. Games, paints, and puzzles are there for your enjoyment. Imagine peaceful daytimes enjoying the view, and evenings sipping wine as you watch the flames leap in the massive stone fireplace.
Thalia's four bedrooms sleep up to eight people. Each bedroom has a comfy king-sized bed, Egyptian cotton sheets, and custom-made duvet. Every room offers sweeping ocean views, and the sea can be heard from every window. Thick stone walls ensure a feeling of comfort and security. Awake feeling refreshed and reinvigorated!
Bathe outdoors, overlooking the ocean
A bathtub awaits bubbles on a wooden deck outside the main pavilion, overlooking the sea. A wood-fired sauna and an outdoor shower are nearby. Steam away your cares in the evening or indulge in a hot bath after a swim - gaze out to the islands and rocks of Great Oyster Bay. Be transfixed by an endless sky full of twinkling stars. If you're lucky, the sea will be phosphorescent - unforgettable!
