About this listing
"Lucaya" is in the heart of Mt Martha. Less than a minutes walk to beach via your own private path to the esplanade, the house is an ultimate family beach house. Open plan, rambling garden, sun-decks and outdoor eating areas. Short stroll to village.
The old section was built in 1933 and a dozen years ago we added a new section which features double-glazing and plenty of insulation. It's a new and old take on an Australian beach side property. Designed around out-dorr living with plenty of decks and access to a native garden.
All parts of the main house is accessible. The garage is not available during rental periods.

Other things to note

This is our home and only property. We've spent a lot of time and effort to create an environment that, now are children have largely moved on, we are delighted to be able to share. We feel sure visitors will appreciate the personal touches and will be respectful of it's importance in our lives.

We moved to Australia 30+ years ago from the UK and have loved living on the Mornington Peninsula for 25 years of that time. We love being in the quieter part of Mt Martha with a secluded, low maintenance native garden, walking and swimming on the beach for as many days of the year as we can, eating al fresco and using as much of our outdoors area as inside. For days when the weather is less hospitable we have hydronic heating and a great wood burning fire place in the main living room. The recently renovated kitchen is designed to be worked hard so if you enjoy cooking and eating at home there will be no shortage of anything to make your time enjoyable and easy! Mt Martha village is a short walk away and the wineries in Red Hill are a short 20 min drive as are the surf beaches on the other side of the bay. We think this is a pretty perfect spot and hope you will find it as relaxing and peaceful as we do!
