Australia probably isn’t the first place that people think of when amazing oceanfront property comes to mind. Although Australia isn’t exactly a tropical place, there are many places on the country that have mostly warm weather all year-round. However, because Australia is located on the southern hemisphere, its seasons are opposite to those you might be familiar with. The months that people in the United States and Europe associate with summer are actually winter in Australia, and vice versa. With that being said, Australia could be the perfect vacation spot for those who want to live it up during the winter months. While most people in the United States are flocking to places like Florida during December and January, Australia could definitely be a very interesting and different option.
Surrounded by the Indian Ocean, Australia has plenty of beautiful beaches for those who like to swim or just simply kick back and enjoy the view. What better way to enjoy the water than to build a beautiful home right next to it? Well thanks to the very talented and creative people at Rolf Ockert Design, it’s clear that oceanfront residences are the way to go. The Clovelly House, which stands in Sydney, was created by Ockert and his team, and is a true representation of the word beautiful. The home overlooks the water and features some beautiful touches both inside and out. According to the house’s website, “Clovelly House is a classically designed, colonial-style sandstone home set in 2000 m2 of beautifully landscaped gardens, with full, daylong sun. Sandstone walls shelter the gardens from the street and provide quiet and secluded accommodation for guests.” You may think you have seen some incredible homes by the water, but these photos from the Clovelly House by Rolf Ockert Design will definitely blow you away.
