The Reads is a rustic yet inviting structure adorned with weathered cedar boards and driftwood accents filled with a library of books for your enjoyment while staying. A wraparound porch, complete with comfortable wicker chairs, provides the perfect spot to soak in the breathtaking river views and enjoy the gentle sea breeze. 

As you step inside, you are greeted by an interior that seamlessly melds the ruggedness of a beach shack with the elegance of coastal living.

The heart of the house is the open-concept living area, featuring exposed wooden beams, reclaimed hardwood floors, and a vaulted ceiling. Oversized windows flood the room with natural light, framing the river like a work of art. A cozy fireplace, flanked by comfy sofas and plush, nautical-themed cushions, invites you to unwind with a book or gather around for conversations.

Each of the bedrooms is a tranquil sanctuary. Whitewashed walls and crisp linens are complemented by driftwood-inspired furnishings and handwoven rugs. Oversized windows offer glimpses of the river and the lush surrounding landscape. The master suite features stunning river views, offering a luxurious touch.

The bathrooms continue the rustic yet elegant theme, with subway-tiled showers, custom driftwood vanities, and sea glass accents. Barn-style sliding doors add a touch of authenticity.

The outdoor spaces are designed for relaxation and outdoor entertainment. A wooden deck extends from the porch, providing ample space for lounging and al fresco dining. A path leads down to a secluded beach, where you can swim, kayak, or simply bask in the sun.

Throughout the house, nautical-themed decor and carefully curated vintage finds enhance the rustic elegance. Handwoven throws and plush cushions add warmth and comfort to every corner.

Escape to The Reads, where the absence of a television is a deliberate invitation to unwind and connect with the tranquillity of our serene surroundings.

Immerse yourself in the charm of a cosy reading nook stocked with an array of books, providing the perfect companionship for relaxation. Let the quiet ambience of the region embrace you as you delve into captivating stories, creating a space where the turning of pages harmonizes with the peaceful symphony of nature. Recharge your spirit in a haven where the simple pleasures of a good book and the quietude of the landscape intertwine to offer a genuinely restorative escape.

The Reads seamlessly blends the rugged beauty of the beach community with elegant design and thoughtful details, creating a retreat that invites you to savour the simple pleasures of coastal living.
