While it may be a stretch to say that you'll be praying for rainy days here, the wealth of amenities at guests' disposal at this remarkable home will certainly lift moods when skies turn grey.
All tastes and persuasions are catered to behind the home's four walls. In the pool house, there's a gym for the fitness fanatics and a billiards table for pool sharks, while the main house has a dedicated cinema room for gathering everybody together in front of a blockbuster, plus a trio of rather elegant freestanding bathtubs that are begging for a long soak. Even the basics are extraordinary, the super-stylish open kitchen and dining room in particular.
Of course, you're also well covered for options when the sun makes an appearance, thanks to the heated swimming pool that sits in the middle of the garden, along with the trampoline and alfresco lounge. And that's not forgetting the fact that Branksome Beach lies less than ten minutes' walk from the home, too. Don't be so quick to start that rain dance.
