'Treetop Escape'

When you think of an escape to the Mornington Peninsula you think of those classic weatherboard beach houses, painted in hues of the surrounding sand dunes.

The Nest is just that, a beautiful weatherboard beach house elevated among the treetops, recently repainted and newly furnished it is immaculately presented. Located within a 15 minute walk to Whitecliffs Beach, this property is hidden away in a quiet area of Rye but close enough for a walk to the bayside beach .Drive to the centre of bustling Rye within a few minutes where you will find shops, restaurants and the funfair in summer or 5 mins drive in the opposite direction is the smaller village of Blairgowrie with its classy cafes and the yacht club. Its also only a 15 minute walk to the popular Peninsula Pantry, a hidden treasure, the best little café for coffee, breakfast and lunch. Walk the high steps up to the front north facing verandah with seating, perfect for drinks in the late afternoon or if the steps prove difficult for you there is a pathway at the side of the house that is a gentler climb to enter from the rear.

Inside you have a three bedroomed house beautifully decorated with great attention to detail. Once inside the property its light and airy and safe and secure for small children and pets alike. The front security door and rear bifold doors when open create airflow and a sense of the outdoors coming in making this property seem vast. This is a perfect entertaining house for summer and winter alike. Nestled at the front of the house is the elegant lounge with log fire and with plenty of comfy seating and glimpses of the trees through the many windows, there is a 42" Flatscreen TV and DVD for modern entertainment with FOXTEL. With an eclectic mix of furniture this house has a unique style. There are nods to the name of the property with little birds nests in jars dotted around and a beautiful Kingfisher bird taking pride of place on the wall.

A large kitchen in the centre of the house makes this the heart of the property, with bench dining here to chat to the chef as he/she works or sit in the second sitting area with library of beautiful books - a perfect nook for reading. The bifold doors at the rear are star of this property and push back to completely to reveal the deck and garden extending the smaller second lounge into a vast entertaining area beautifully connected to the central kitchen. A seamless space for all the family to enjoy. The outdoor deck has a four burner bbq and seating around a table for 6 guests plus extra. The garden is secure for pets with a view is to a small copse of native ti-tree but there is plenty of room for the kids to play and there are badminton raquets and net, cricket, coits and balls for the kids to play to their hearts content. The copse of native ti-tree makes a great adventure for small children.


There are three beautiful bedrooms. To one side of the house is the beautiful master with King bed, ensuite and walk in robe. On the opposite side of the house are two further bedrooms, one King that can be split into singles and a lovely Queen Bedroom at the front of the house overlooking the trees. These two bedrooms share a central bathroom and separate toilet. All the bedrooms have beautifully installed double blinds for complete blackout for lazy mornings.
