There is a certain magic surrounding The White House. A once tired 1950s weatherboard home, considered by many as a knock down, now the holiday home people drive past and slow down to look at, witnessing an opportunity taken, rather than one lost.
Keeping alive the traditional Australian outdoor lifestyle of sun, surf and sand, The White House is much more than a renovated beach home, it is a commitment to space and recreation. The house sits on one of the most expansive parcels of ocean view property in South Lorne. Undulating from tall gums through luscious grassed zones and landscaped gardens to land finally on the most impressive tennis court. Its elevation and Northern alignment affords spectacular vistas from every corner of the property.
Not only does The White House nurture its original charm, it also showcases coastal interior styling at its best. From the pale watery palettes of sea green and shades of sand, to the earthy timbers, every last detail has been carefully considered. In every aspect of living the sort of quality you would expect in your own home is provided.Three bedrooms upstairs flank the main lounge and kitchen dining area, all casting eyes over the impressive 4 x 12 metre silver ash deck. Separately accessed downstairs is a 4th bedroom, main bathroom and laundry. Key features include suspended fireplace, top of the range beds and high comfort mattresses with luxurious bedlinen. Outdoors for your enjoyment are queen sized hammocks, recreational equipment, and an outdoor shower with a view.
A decision was made at The White House to reignite beauty rather than taking a far easier path towards building the next big thing. Hand in hand was a commitment to choose green space over footprint. Combined, these choices have resulted in much more than a spectacular holiday home, they have kept alive a Lorne tradition.

AmazingNici - 30th September 2019
We had an amazing time at the White House I would think it is nearly the perfect holiday house for us. The care and consideration taken to bring this house back to a family holiday retreat is evident everywhere. The quality of the fixtures and fittings beautiful linen and extremely comfortable beds feather pillows on the couches plenty of soft towels and high quality hand soap - a fabulous kitchen to cook in and a great space for the whole family to chill out inside or out. For the children the wonderful outdoor space, which gave them a sense of total freedom, the tennis court and all the other outside games that were on hand. It was a delight to see them outside all the time and barely going near the electronic screens. Then there is that amazing view I do not think you could ever get sick of the wonder that is mother nature. There is already talk of a return trip. Thanks again to you and your team for the fantastic service.

Sympathetically renovatedTony - 19th March 2019
We count ourselves fortunate to have spent time in this wonderful property. Ideally we would have liked to have kept its existence a secret. Sympathetically renovated it is at once both effortlessly stylish with its suspended fireplace , tasteful colour pallet , soft furnishings and also relaxing and homely. It is a testament to the owners that they have thought of every little detail to make the guests stay more enjoyable. From the fragrant soaps, soft bath towels ,luxurious linen and bed spreads right down to the bluetooth speaker, hammocks and tennis equipment this place has everything you need and nothing that you dont. The property is situated in the Lorne hinterland overlooking a well-manicured lawn a newly surfaced tennis court and views of Lorne beach. It is a fantastic place for summer and winter. And we will definitely be back again!
