Eyrie House

Eyrie House, Skenes Creek North

Eyrie House is a beautifully presented holiday property with amazing views, located high up in the Otway Ranges, yet only 5 minutes away from the Great Ocean Road and the beach.

This split-level home is the perfect retreat for a couple, family or group of friends. Overlooking the Southern Ocean with refreshing sea breezes, it offers spectacular views from every room.

The open plan living area is located on the lower level, with floor to ceiling windows bathing this space in natural light and providing great views.

The well equipped kitchen features beautiful blackwood timber benches and doors. It includes everything you need including a gas cooktop, electric oven, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, fridge/freezer and dishwasher.

From the dining area, a glass door leads out onto a huge deck with an outdoor setting. From here you can see the land below drop away steeply into a deep gully and then out to the coast and ocean. A second outdoor area is located at the back of the home. This north-facing patio catches lots of sun and has a 6 burner gas BBQ with a side burner, a picnic table and seating.
