This iconic beach house, nestled on Victoria’s stunning Bellarine Peninsula, is now a sought-after luxury accommodation property, and it’s everything you’ve been craving for your next coastal escape.

Originally constructed in 1991 by the visionary Lady Susannah and Sir Rupert Clarke, the design of SAGRES bears the distinctive touch of the late Wayne Gillespie. A revered architect in Melbourne, Gillespie’s style is known for its clean lines, abundant natural light, and seamless blending of indoor and outdoor living spaces. Now, SAGRES stands proudly as a contemporary haven, capturing breathtaking views of Nuns Beach in Queenscliff.
After a significant renovation in 2022, the property combines its original luxurious essence with modern elegance. Interior specialist Emily Fitzgerald, along with owner Jo Youl, has curated the finest furniture, art, and textiles from across Australia to create spaces that inspire quality time for families and couples alike. Jo perfectly describes SAGRES’ aesthetic as a delightful blend of relaxed organic fibres, neutral tones, and textures, sprinkled with playful pops of colour, soft patterns, and quirky objects.

But that’s not all—SAGRES boasts a wealth of features to make your stay unforgettable. With two king bedrooms, each equipped with an ensuite bathroom (and one with a luxurious bath), three queen bedrooms, and multiple living and dining areas, the property oozes sophistication and comfort. And let’s not forget the outdoor bath, double-head shower, a full kitchen including a Thermomix, Nespresso coffee machine and Soda Stream; and private access to the stunning Nuns Beach—this is coastal living at its finest.
The name SAGRES pays homage to the coastal town of Sagres in Portugal, the country’s most south-western point. Lady Susannah and Sir Rupert Clarke found inspiration there in the early 80s, where the vast ocean outlook expanded their horizons and connected them with the rest of the world. Similarly, SAGRES Queenscliff opens up a world of relaxation and rejuvenation, drawing on the allure of the Mediterranean coastline to create its timeless charm.
So, if you’re dreaming of an idyllic coastal escape, SAGRES is your answer. Let the waves of relaxation wash over you as you soak in the beauty of this exquisite beach house.
