In a town brimming with historical architecture, Grey Masts is an estate of exceptional quality, outstanding character and unique authenticity.
Located right in the heart of Robe, one of South Australia’s most captivating coastal villages, this estate occupies 1,439m2 of land directly across the road from one of the town’s many delightful beaches.
Constructed in 1845 the cottage is built from locally sourced sandstone and timber salvaged from old sailing ships.
The north-facing estate consists of two heritage-listed dwellings, both of which have been recently renovated to state heritage standards.
The master residence, Grey Masts House (c 1855) has three bedrooms, three bathrooms and three sitting rooms. Currently utilised as tourist accommodation its features include a light-filled vestibule and expansive living and dining areas. Two of the sitting rooms offer glorious views of Guichen Bay out to the Baudin Islands. The East vestibule opens onto an outdoor entertaining area, under vines surrounded by a lush garden. While the house has been completely restored with new plumbing, new wiring and state of the art electrical connections, the floorboards are salvaged from the wrecks of old sailing ships, along the wild coast line of this part of Southern Australia. This house has played a significant role in the history of Robe, and is now a favourite accommodation destination for those who seek an example of the very best life has to offer in this historic village.
