Eyre Peninsula now has yet another world class jewel to add to its crown. This time its in the form of an amazing new property aptly named “Colebrook” in Charlton Gully, just out of the seafood capital of Australia, Port Lincoln.
Designed by owners Shane and Rebecca Cole, Colebrook is an outstanding rural retreat that offers a relaxed country experience without foregoing the small luxuries of everyday life. The Cole’s youthful exubarance and passion to the property is shown immediately as you enter through an impressive stone entrance, then the gently sloping landscape of ‘Colebrook’ envelopes you within the 10 acres of its unique natural setting!
Featuring two spring fed lakes stocked with rainbow trout, murray cod and yabbies, and surrounded by mature stands of native eucalypts, Colebrook has been purpose designed to enhance that special country getaway feeling.
Perfectly complimenting its beautiful natural setting, the lodge has been intentionally designed to replicate the luxury log homes and lodges of rural Canada. The expansive 4 bedroom lodge easily accommodates 10 people, and incorporates a number of entertaining areas that would suit almost any situation.
Built over three levels, the entry and living level features a gourmet kitchen that opens onto a central ‘Great Room’ that is the heart of the lodge. Featuring 5m high cathedral ceilings, recycled timber flooring and a huge stacked stone fireplace, the ‘Great Room’ in turn opens through French doors onto a vast entertaining deck overlooking the main lake.
Two adjacent wings include a private retreat with walk-in-robe and ensuite, and a family guest wing with two double bedrooms and a bathroom that features a clawfoot bath and reclaimed timber vanity. The self contained lower level comprises a central walk out basement, with a bunk room, sauna and central recreation room that features an open fireplace, piano and a large wet bar with two bar fridges. The adjacent terrace includes a 6 person spa whilst an upper level mezzanine office opens out over the ‘Great Room’.
