Pet-friendly
A private house and creative refuge overlooking Victoria’s spectacular South Gippsland coastline, engulfed by majestic limestone cliffs upon the shore of a famously magic beach.

Ideally sized for 1-2 people to comfortably retreat to, Jacky Winter Waters is luxuriously minimal and dog-friendly. All amenities have been carefully curated to encourage connection with the natural environment.

Jacky Winter Waters has been designed as a place for contemplative retreat for singles or couples. The property is not suitable for children, but we hope to allow for this soon.

Additional Information

The space

Designed by Imogen Pullar Architecture, the concept for Jacky Winter Waters was to provide the essentials of living, a place to rest the mind and body, and connect with nature. It's not a tiny house, but it's not a full beach house. It is a luxurious minimal space – perfectly sized for one or two to retreat to.

With the small footprint, we are able to strip away the unnecessary elements of a typical house (i.e. entry foyers, hallways, rooms for beds) – and provide shelter in its purest form, somewhere to cook, somewhere to bathe, somewhere to rest — all within the one volume of space.

The small footprint also means that there is minimal impact on the site and the environment as a whole. The space does not feel small or tight, however. Its tall, raked ceilings give a sense of openness, a single internal material – white washed radiata pine ply — wraps around the interior walls, floors and cabinetry, reducing the visual clutter of the interior space.

The large deck is a platform for living outside, where one can experience this unique place, the expansive views to Waratah Bay and Wilson Promontory beyond.

Creating a small footprint retreat of only the essentials of living was quite a challenge on this site. With a Bushfire attack level of flame zone to most of the site, steep terrain, site erosion, the highly corrosive marine environment, and no connection to town water supply or sewerage – meant the house needed to be robust, self-sufficient in terms of water use, and designed to work within the challenging landscape.

On top of these challenges, we set our own brief to create a healthy, comfortable, and energy efficient home by incorporating low toxicity materials, continuous and complete insulation around the entire envelope of the house, vapour permeable air tight wraps, all timber construction, and a heat recovery ventilation system that provides fresh filtered air to the building continuously to maintain healthy indoor air quality. Active heating and cooling is only needed in extreme weather conditions — with the windows providing solar gains in winter, and cooling breezes in summer — and the airtight wraps and insulation help maintain comfortable temperatures in the cooler evenings.

The success of the project came from the collaborative effort of so many people who are all experts in their field working together.

Hello! I'm Jeremy, the director of The Jacky Winter Group. We have been instrumental in defining the contemporary commercial art landscape since 2007. With a distinct presence in the US and the UK, we’re grounded in Melbourne by a commitment to support and distribute the work of our esteemed artists. Jacky Winter Places span across Victoria, from the streets of Collingwood — Lamington Drive —, to the hills of the Dandenongs — Jacky Winter Gardens —, and now the shores of Walkerville — Jacky Winter Waters. With over 100 artists on our books, we’re committed to carving out new ways for the world to engage with their work. On a personal level, it also allows myself and my partner Lorelei to share the magic of these places with visitors and travelers. We live in a truly special part of the world and look forward to welcoming you soon!

    Working from Walkerville

    In the thick of Walkerville’s native coastline, I found the ideal getaway not too far from Melbourne. It was a great environment for me to not only get on top of some work I'd been putting off, but also give me some well-deserved...
