Architectural beauty in McLaren Vale is serious eye candy

Property reviewed by Stephanie Mikkelsen on Monday, October 23, 2017

High on a hill near Kangarilla is McLaren Eye, a strikingly luxurious villa that provides some of the best panoramas to be had on the Fleurieu Peninsula. The Eye rewards guests with vistas that extend from the paddocks below, across vines and verdant pasture, and all the way out to the coastline. This architecturally conceived property proves itself with eco-friendly talents too; generating its own power and collecting rainwater.

A stay at McLaren Eye is a most exclusive experience. The retreat sits on a 55-acre property, set far back from any roads. Those with access to a helicopter can even arrive by touching down on the property’s private helipad. Is four wheels your preferred method of travel? Not a problem. Pull up in front of McLaren Eye, already mentally prepared to savour a weekend – or longer – of complete seclusion. No prying eyes, no inquisitive passers-by. Just you and those views.

McLaren Eye is made up of three pavilion-like spaces. The central pavilion houses a slick kitchen, living area and dining room; all corners filled with the natural light, streaming in from the floor-to-ceiling glass windows. On either side of this middle structure is a beautiful bedroom. Both have king beds, private balconies, walk-in wardrobes and ensuites. The main bedroom also boasts an incredible freestanding circular bathtub, and this two-person soaker has a convenient perch that makes it ideal for sitting in suds and sipping a local wine.
