FOR SALE by Andrew Shue Real Estate
Lot 1000, Jalan Pantai, Bantam Village 6799, Cocos (Keeling) Islands.
Welcome to Australia's most unique seaside property - the iconic Oceania House.
Situated on the Cocos Keeling Islands, 2,750km north-west of Perth, the house represents an opportunity for you to own a piece of your very own untouched paradise.
Your chance to purchase something this exclusive only comes along once in a lifetime. Your island home and the tropical escape you thought was only possible in your dreams is now a reality.
Constructed in 1887, the former ancestral home of the Clunies-Ross family is a stunning, heritage-listed, double-storey mansion situated on the most prominent, yet most secluded, and picturesque point of Home Island. Incidentally, the 1.25-hectare property is the only freehold land available on the island; and you will become a part of the rich and intriguing history of Oceania House.
Set just meters from the edge of the water, with extensive and unrestricted views across the lagoon, Oceania House provides a touch of Colonial elegance in the busy 21st century. Arrive by plane or by yacht; your paradise is within reach, and your very own, private beach is waiting for you.
You can expect warm tropical days and balmy evenings all year round. The palm tree-lined stretches of endless white sandy beaches are heavenly, and the warm, emerald green waters beckon you to make the most from the relaxed lifestyle on offer.
You can enjoy swimming; snorkelling, fishing, and boating and, as the night sets in, you will love to spend your evenings relaxing at home enjoying a drink, while watching the sun turn the lagoon into a rainbow of colours - it really doesn't get any better.
If you crave a more invigorating experience, the Cocos Keeling Islands' lagoon comes alive during the months of July to October, when the southeast trade winds bring ideal conditions for surfing, kitesurfing, and windsurfing.
Diving tours, paddle boards, motorised canoes and kayaks are all at your fingertips as well. In recent years, fly fishing has exploded throughout the islands, with international guests chasing prized catches. The islands are also famous for migratory bird watching; and you will be sure to regularly spot the abundant protected majestic turtles that live in the Lagoon. Island hopping by short ferry or boat makes for an unforgettable day out. Head to Direction Island to drift dive or snorkel from the beach accessible reef back to your picnic spot. The choices are plentiful. You can even attend a traditional cooking class to satisfy your desire to cook the delicious local cuisine.
The Cocos Malay Australian community on Home Island are friendly and welcoming. The local culture is a blend of history, and tradition found nowhere else in the world. The opportunity to live in such a diverse group that shares life on the islands in peace, harmony and mutual respect is something that is to be cherished.
If you have ever dreamt of leaving everything stressful behind, throwing your clocks away, focusing on your health and well-being, and relaxing and enjoying a peaceful existence, regulated by the `island’ life’s pace, then Oceania House is for you. You will fall in love with it. Don't miss out.
