We build homes in some of the most sought-after locations in the county…”

The team at Legacy have worked closely with architects in order to orient each home to maximise the magnificent views of the bay. As you walk through the house you can’t help but frequently feel the connection to the outdoors and the call of the ocean. Nick Long, Legacy Properties Managing Director tells us: “We’ve created a natural flow with these houses, blurring the line between indoor and outdoor living that’s perfectly in keeping with the surroundings.”

And the surroundings here are pretty special – miles of golden sandy beaches, dunescapes, dramatic cliff tops and ocean vistas are part of the fabric of everyday life. Nick continues: “We build homes in some of the most sought-after locations in the county, and it’s crucial that we do those sites justice.” And, of course, the interior of each four-bedroom house at The Rocks reflects the quality, craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail that’s made the Legacy team multiple award-winners.

Locally sourced materials are used in beautiful open-plan living, kitchen and dining spaces with wide-planked oak flooring and Neff appliances. Plus, all rooms are fitted with dimmable LED down lights and state-of-the-art speakers and the landscaped south-facing gardens are perfect for entertaining family and friends after a day at the beach. Upstairs, large floor-to-ceiling patio doors flood the master bedrooms with light for a spacious, airy feel. And you’re connected to the outdoors by a beautiful patio finished with a frameless glass balustrade – so that nothing can spoil your view.

Each of the ten individually designed houses is a true masterclass in bespoke, contemporary luxury. There’s a beautiful simplicity to them that can only come from a precise combination of careful planning, premium products and excellent design. So why not arrange a viewing and experience them for yourself?
