Sweeping ocean views from Port Phillip Heads to Jan Juc greet you from this elevated and totally private position. Set on just under 4 acres of park land type rolling green lawns, this stunning four-bedroom residence is finished to the highest levels, fully air-conditioned and will impress the most discerning guests. Designed to maximise its northern aspect and allow every room to have scenic outlooks, the property takes full advantage of the views with a spectacular north-facing sun deck.

The space
This stunning 4-bedroom home offers an unparalleled lifestyle experience. Occupying a commanding position with views across Jan Juc bushland to the ocean, you will feel on top of the world. Set amongst beautiful green lawns and coastal gardens, the private bush surrounds are tranquil, with the convenience of close proximity to world-famous Bells Beach and the Jan Juc Village shops and cafés. The main Torquay shopping and dining precinct is a short 10-minute drive away.

A bank of floor-to-ceiling windows flood the stylish interiors with warm natural light and unobstructed views, so you can gaze upon the silhouettes of Pt Nepean and Cape Schanck on the distant East Coast. The upper level incorporates a large open plan living, kitchen and dining area, plus an adjoining enclosed entertaining area so you can BBQ and dine outside without flies or insects ‘bugging’ you. This place has it all - every space is practical and sublime, elevating your every day.

Beautifully decorated and fully air-conditioned, the spacious floorplan boasts high ceilings throughout with accommodation for up to 8 guests (4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms). Two living areas over 2 levels make this the ideal setting for a memorable family holiday, groups of friends or executive travellers.

Entertainers will appreciate the well-stocked chef’s kitchen, with high quality amenities. There is a wall oven, cooktop, dishwasher and double fridge, combined with world-class views to make meal preparation a delight. Distinctive stone benches and a brekky bar will be the site for sharing food and conversation, adjoining a sizeable dining area. Kids are catered to, with plastic tableware, stairgates, toys, games and a playroom, plus a full-size cot available by request (BYO cot linen).

There is space for everyone, both for lively communal gatherings and quiet retreat. The main living room has comfortable lounge suites, a Smart TV (Netflix connectivity), and a woodfire. Curl up and relax with a great book, and be mesmerised by breathtaking views of the bush and beyond.
Direct flow to the deck provides even more opportunities to enjoy expansive ocean and coastline views. Downstairs is a 2nd living/rumpus room with free to air TV, and a pool table (please take great care, any damage to felt surface must be paid for).

Landscaped green spaces give the kids heaps of room to play on the sweeping lawns and native gardens, plus a basketball ring and trampoline. Pick your own seasonal fruit from the orchard (apples, cherries, apricots, pears, plums) and vegies from the garden.
With a King-size master bedroom (with ensuite), study and powder room on the top level it is quite self-contained for two people. If the whole family or other guests are coming, the three large bedrooms, two bathrooms and substantial second living area on the ground level can all be utilised.

All four bedrooms have SSAC and ceiling fans, embracing beautiful views. They are beautifully appointed with luxury hotel quality sheets and bath towels, making your stay as pleasurable as possible. The Master bedroom features a private balcony with awe-inspiring sea views. Downstairs the three spacious bedrooms include a Queen, Double and a Twin Single with en suite.

Master bedroom – King Bed with ensuite
Bedroom 2 – Twin Single Beds with ensuite
Bedroom 3 –Double Bed
Bedroom 4 – Queen Bed
**Full-size cot available by request (BYO cot linen).

A central bathroom downstairs has a bath, Tastic heater, large shower and vanity, with a separate toilet. There is also an additional powder room conveniently located upstairs.

Other features of this spectacular secluded retreat include Wifi, hydrogenated/double-filtered water filter tap, remote-controlled sun awnings upstairs and solar power.

Connected to nature via commanding views of bush, sea and sky, we hope your visit to ‘Rip View Retreat’ offers a unique opportunity to live the idyllic coastal dream during your time on Victoria’s Surf Coast, at the start of The Great Ocean Road.
