Remember those childhood summers where you spent all day in the surf and sand, eating Icy Poles and Red Frogs from the beach kiosk, before traipsing back to a holiday home of cool timber floors and wide shady verandahs? Well, Bells Beach House captures the essence of those wonderful holidays in all their sandy-footed glory.
The Bells Beach House & Bungalow (formerly John Singleton Beach House) is now fully managed by the Bells at Killcare team.
One of the most beautiful beach homes on the East Coast of Australia, Bells Beach House was built for advertising guru, John Singleton. ‘Singo’ as he is affectionately known, who has decided to throw open the doors and share the experience with others.
The 4-bedroom house was designed by the critically acclaimed local architect, Karen Burke, to make the most of the unsurpassed Killcare beachfront location and who knows the ebbs and flow of the ocean breezes better than most. The floorplan is such that most rooms enjoy widesweeping vistas of the Pacific Ocean. Skillion roofs and extensive glazing, frame the dramatic sandstone cliffs of the adjoining National Park. The house interiors have been designed by Chrissie Jeffery (of No Chintz fame), to capture the essence of the quintessential Australian beachside holiday home. On the upper level, the master suite comprising study, dressing room, bathroom and a private deck, overlooks a small waterfall and landscaped bushland. On the lower level there are two more double bedrooms, both with views of the beach and one with ensuite. Also on this level is a kids room with 4 bunks and another bathroom with a bath.
Comparable in style and amenities to any of the super premium properties of Sydney’s playground to the rich and famous, Palm Beach (a mere 20 minutes ferry ride), the Beach House has the added advantage of its beachfront location right next door to the Killcare Surf Club, making it a haven for young families and groups of friends.
This is the quintessential laid back, luxurious beach house that everyone aspires to, but few can realise.
