BELLMORE ON THE BAY
Bellmore on the Bay is a beautiful family home situated on the end of a small peninsula on the north coast of Kangaroo Island.
At almost 250 square metres, not including the outdoor entertainment precinct, Bellmore offers plenty of room to relax. The four-bedroom home caters for up to 10 guests, with two rooms having Queen beds, one a double, and the fourth has two double bunks perfect for little travellers. The Master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, and there is an additional bathroom with a bath and shower. The house has a laundry equipped with a tub and a front-loading washing machine.
The kitchen and dining room space is open-plan and is warmed by a slow combustion wood fire making it an excellent option for visits during cooler months. The home has all of the equipment needed for self-catering, but we can also provide dining options so that everyone gets a break. There is a separate family room with a television, and all rooms have expansive views across the landscape or the adjacent coastline.
There is an extensive lawn and gardens, a paved area with a fire pit, and a well-designed entertainment space partially enclosed by glass, encouraging year-round outdoor relaxing. Overhead space heaters provide luxurious warmth in cooler conditions. This space has another television for keeping up with an all-important game.
Moving out of the fenced garden space surrounding the home, you have full access to the extensive property with a low limestone cliff providing views to the east across the Bay of Shoals. To the north is an attractive estuary which is home to many birds. The adjacent Sanctuary Zone, part of the Encounter Marine Park, protects the habitat of a range of fish, dolphins and other marine creatures.
The location feels remote – panoramic sea views, no close neighbours, open space, yet you are only minutes from Kingscote. A range of cellar doors, a micro-brewery, lavender farm, a honey farm-gate experience, a boutique gin and whisky distillery, and Emu Bay, one of the Island’s finest beaches, are all within ten minutes drive.
