Revamped rural rusticity
It’s easy to overuse the phrase ‘get away from it all’, but for Scrubby Bay – a rustic, cedar-clad bungalow on an isolated stretch of the Annandale estate – the description seems more than fitting. Nestled between rolling hills at the mouth of a private bay with views for miles across the Pacific, this farm-style refuge feels authentic and homespun, but has all the mod cons you’d expect of a luxury stay: a heated pool, chrome-accented kitchen and thumping sound system (in case you’d like a change from nature’s soundtrack of twittering birds and lapping waves). Contemporary interiors are cast in natural, untreated wood, and flickering flames – both in the huge stone chimney and outdoor fire pit – add warmth and cosiness. When the views are like this, you’d hate to miss them for a second; floor-to-ceiling windows across the sea-facing side of the house (including the bathrooms – wave-gazing soak, anyone?) mean you won’t have to.
