Welcome the The Bayleys
The Bayleys beach house is all about expecting the unexpected. For example, it has an abundance of space in a location you would least expect it. It oozes character. Something that is fast disappearing in cosmopolitan Lorne. It nurtures heritage while embracing modern styling. Not too cool for school but pretty damn cool. Sounds exciting, it is.
Built in the early 1920s The Bayleys was once the manager's residence for Cora Lynn guest house. It has been part of the same family for 4 generations and has been expanded and renovated to accommodate large extended families and friends. The most recent refurbishment of the upper level of the home has allowed it to be opened to the public for the first time.
Nestled right behind the Main Street and an easy stroll to the central Lorne Beach, supermarket and restaurants you can lock the car up, forget about it, the Mexican is only one block away!
Comprising five bedrooms, five bathrooms and a variety of living zones, the home seems to meander its way on and off the surrounding built in verandah. The house has a fully equipped kitchen dining area and a unique Lorne family history room where you can sit by the wood fire and step back in time! There is a large outdoor heated spa next to a BBQ and entertainment area with 2 custom built outdoor wood heaters. The main lounge also has a monster 75' TV for your viewing pleasure.
The large grassy lawn was once a tennis court and as you wander around the garden you will see old fruit trees that were once part of a large orchard that the Cora Lynn guests enjoyed, the cockatoos seem to be the main consumers of them now!
There is an edible green garden and our girls Sunday, Mary, Ruby and Big Red are in the chook house and can lay fresh eggs for breakfast...if you're lucky!
The lower level of the house is currently not in use so your privacy, peace and quiet is assured. Adjacent to the property is an original guest house bungalow that may be occupied but is seperately acessed.
The Bayleys is a property that must be seen, experienced and enjoyed again and again.
** Sitting lounge has extra single or day bed
