With its charming sandstone and brick facade highlighted by brightly painted timber features, this landmark cottage has been lovingly constructed of local, recycled and salvaged materials.
Beautifully set on a elevated block amongst native coastal Moonah trees 'Driftwood Cottage' features a private pathway winding up to one of Rye's highest points with captivating views.
Surrounded by timber decks and multiple pairs of vintage French-doors, the cottage is designed to enjoy both indoor/outdoor living in the summer, and cosy winter weekends. There is a spacious living area with polished timber floors, a robust wood-fire heater, plus split system A/C. The light-filled bedroom, which has a wall of multi-panel windows and dado detailing, and the delightful bathroom/laundry are off the central hallway which leads to the modern kitchen and dining area with polished concrete floors and a bushy outlook to an outdoor deck and dining area cocooned with natural rock retaining walls.
So many unique and quirky features include a breakfast bar constructed from an original timber-door, a re-purposed packing crate as a towel rail, gorgeous recycled timber dresser vanity and a hanging tree branch providing additional clothes' hanging space in the bedroom. Perfectly located close to Rye's beautiful beaches and a short stroll to Peninsula Pantry cafe, this cottage has been successfully run as guest accommodation, or would provide an ideal permanent home or a romantic Peninsula getaway.
