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.

Meanwhile - I wanted to share the latest update provided by Real Estate.com's chief Economists, Nerida Conisbee:-
"Amid the unprecedented impacts of coronavirus, Perth agents say it’s yet to impact the local housing market, with an influx of sales including a Dalkeith mansion that sold for $14 million last week.
realestate.com.au’s chief economist, Nerida Conisbee says despite the community unease and precarious economic conditions, the Australian property market has experienced little impact from the global pandemic.
“Right now, the Australian property market is taking COVID-19 in its stride,” Conisbee says.
“Search activity on realestate.com.au is still well up on last year. We may be experiencing some of the toughest economic conditions for some time but for property it is still better than what was happening last March when buyers and sellers were showing strong concern about the Federal election result and the fallout from the Royal Commission.
“While the outlook is still extremely uncertain, there continues to be high levels of economic stimulus in Australia and around the world.
“Ideally this will help cushion any economic challenges we have over coming months. Once concerns about COVID-19 abate and productivity returns to the Australian economy, this stimulus will help drive property demand.”
'A year of recovery': Perth house prices edge up again
House prices in Perth have increased for two consecutive quarters for the first time since 2014, prompting cautious optimism from property experts....Perth’s subdued property market is seeing a glimmer of hope as house prices rebound for the second quarter in a row for the first time since 2014, a new report shows.
House prices edged up by 0.7 per cent to a median $537,013 in the December quarter, the Domain House Price Report, released on Thursday, reveals....
...Real Estate Institute of WA president Damian Collins said there were fewer properties on the market than there were this time last year, creating more demand from buyers.
“There are lots of buyers out there, and they’ve come out early this year,” Mr Collins said. “Agents are certainly optimistic.”
Property Bounce Back: Perth house prices experience first gain in 18 months
Property prices rose at a breakneck pace in November as record-low interest rates and looser lending standards fuelled demand in a sector that has gone from bust to boom since mid-year.
It was the fifth straight month of gains and a potential boom for consumer spending power after a two-year downturn chipped away at household wealth and confidence.
The sector has been the clearest winner from the Reserve Bank of Australia's easing campaign, having cut rates three times since June to a historic low of 0.75 per cent.
The central bank holds its December policy meeting on Tuesday and is widely expected to hold steady as it gauges the full impact of its past stimulus.
Monday's data from property consultant CoreLogic showed home prices across the country rose 1.7 per cent in November from October, when they climbed 1.2 per cent. It was the largest monthly gain since 2003.
Prices were up 0.1 per cent on a year ago, the first positive reading since April of last year.
Values across the state and territorial capital cities rose 2.0 per cent in November, led by a 2.7 per cent surge in Sydney and a 2.2 per cent jump in Melbourne.
Prices in the combined capitals were up 0.4 per cent on a year earlier, with Sydney rising 1.6 per cent and Melbourne 2.2 per cent.
That was a world away from the double-digit pace of declines experienced earlier this year.
"We're seeing advertised stock levels persistently low, creating a sense of urgency in the market as buyer demand picks up," said CoreLogic research director Tim Lawless.
"There's also the prospect that interest rates are likely to fall further over the coming months and an improvement in housing affordability following the recent downturn are other factors supporting a lift in values."
Financial markets have already fully priced in one more cut by the RBA to 0.5 per cent and some chance of a move to 0.25 per cent.
A sustained rebound in prices could prove a saviour for the construction sector, which has seen a severe downturn in new home approvals, particularly for the once red-hot apartment sector.
It would also be a windfall for consumer wealth and spending power, given that the housing stock in Australia is valued at $6.6 trillion, more than three times the country's annual economic output.
The recovery even stretched to the hard-hit Western Australian capital, Perth, where prices boasted the first monthly gain since early 2018.
