Welcome to Helmsman's House

Positioned to command breathtaking views over Port Cygnet Bay, this absolutely stunning 1900’s cottage sits on 5 acres of rolling green pasture and is sure to exceed both your sea and tree change expectations.
The National Award Winning ‘Helmsman's House’ is an impressive two bedroom, two bathroom federation farmhouse, re-imagined by designer Andrew Blaxland and recently renovated to become the breathtaking property it is now.
All of the charm from its vintage has been maintained with sympathetic renovations creating the perfect cohesion of traditional, romantic beginnings and the comfort and style of modern Australian architecture.
The rear of the property has been opened and expanded towards the views to provide an uninterrupted vista of lovely Cygnet Bay. Accessed via French doors from the open plan living and dining, a large, limestone flagged terrace with a gazebo provides the ideal spot to entertain or simply relax at the end of each day.
The feeling of intimate space within the open plan design has not been compromised however, thanks to the thoughtfully positioned, centrally located Chiminee Phillip double sided fireplace.
The kitchen was also revamped to suit the upgrade and now provides gas cooking, a smeg oven and Celery Top Pine benchtops.
The opulent bedrooms are both very spacious doubles with the master enjoying an ensuite. Both bathrooms provide a bath, walk in shower and underfloor heating. The interior of the house is a joy throughout all seasons. Cosy in winter with reverse cycle air-conditioning, panel heaters and double glazing and in summer the whole building opens out to the nature and the view while inviting the cool summer breezes.
The charming grounds are a clever mix of low-maintenance cottage and bird-attracting native plants, with a picking garden of herbs in the kitchen courtyard. Meandering white gravel paths lead you down to the pristine views of water, hills and sky.
The fenced pastures that accompany the home have historically been part of a larger cattle farm, so mineral rich and fertile soils can be expected; perfect for alpacas.
Helmsman's House is located just over a kilometre from the Cygnet centre with its great cafes, galleries and all necessary amenities. A perfect stroll downhill, a good uphill walk coming home.
