LATITUDE 33  is a classic river weekender that simply demands relaxation from it's guests. What makes this place especially unique is floor to ceiling folding glass doors that span the complete length of the front facade,  bringing the spectacular views & light right in to the lounge & bedrooms . The rear deck offers the perfect cool space when the heat is just too much!!!. Alternatively a  hammock  hangs on a private lower deck - yet another  perfect spot to relax & take in the  surrounds. The lounge & main bedroom both open onto the front verandah. Below the main level is a spacious day room that is  reached via an external path, with floor to ceiling louvres capturing the afternoon breezes & beautiful river views .
