Simpatico with its surrounds



Linnaeus Estate is a nature reserve, all wildlife and vegetation are protected. 

An organic, marine aesthetic underpins the considered architecture which fronts a 1.5 km strip of spectacular Seven Mile beach.

Development covers less than 1% of the total 111 hectare estate, minimising the impact of development on the diverse habitats of the adjoining state reserves and marine national park.



Beach Houses

The copper roofed 320 m2 beach houses, crafted from superb timbers, feature soaring spaces and intimate retreats with spectacular ocean views from all rooms and cantilevered decks over two floors.

Beach Beacons

Relax in one of these quirky and intimate 104 m2 one bedroom cabins with spacious interior and immaculate achitectural detail.


Enjoy a 25m infinity pool, tennis court, bocce court, gymnasium, organic market garden and a centre housing a commercial kitchen, bar and cafe, dining rooms, library, and wine cellar.


Shared facilities and a playground to explore



Share ownership of the 111 hectare estate, together with a 25m infinity pool, tennis court, bocce court, gymnasium and organic market garden.

Owners also enjoy access to the 'centre' comprising a commercial kitchen, bar and cafe, dining rooms, library, wine cellar and intimate performance spaces.

The Estate is managed to free residents from the usual burdens of property ownership. Gardens and common facilities are maintained and concierge-style services are provided.
