Scenes from 'The Invisible Man' filmed at The Headland at Dovecote, Gerringong

Being prominently featured in a hit Hollywood movie has only enhanced the appeal of the Gerringong area as a holiday letting destination.

As The Invisible Man continues its box office success, bookings for holiday properties such as The Headland at Dovecote are on the increase.

Dovecote features 150 acres of oceanfront farmland overlooking Werri Beach, and two private accommodations, The Headland and The Range.

The Invisible Man, starring Emmy winner Elisabeth Moss had scenes filmed at The Headland last year, as well as in other parts of the Kiama/Gerringong area.

Dovecote's property and business manager Kathryn Durham said the 30-40 member crew spent about a week shooting at the property.

"They only shot on the exterior of our property," she said.

"They took over two properties - the Pebble Cove farm up on the other headland, and ours as well.

"They actually shot at a number of different locations, and they used their fantastic cinematography skills to blend all of those properties into one.

"What attracted them about The Headland was the architecture."

The $5 million Headland House can be rented from $2750 to $3450 a night via Airbnb or Dovecote's own booking platform.

Ms Durham said the film's popularity showcased the Kiama area overall, not just the properties featured.

"We've had a considerable spike in bookings, I think just from the interest of spending time at the property where it was filmed," she said.

The build of The Headland and The Range was finished in 2017, and the accommodation launched in 2018.

Australian Jeffrey Simpson, based in London, owns the property and accommodation business, and collaborated on the design.

Built by Bellevarde Constructions, the 400sqm residence includes four bedrooms and four bathrooms.

It features frameless windows - including 500kg glass panels in a storm-viewing room - as well as a central courtyard with pool, lawn, seating and fire pit.

It has a sharp angular facade clad twice in stone and zinc, and cantilevered to create a gravity-defying illusion.

"Every inch of the design is a direct response to the immediate and greater landscape," the architect for the Dovecote properties, Andy Carson said.

"The building twists and morphs toward specific views, climatic and spatial considerations with the placement of every wall or change of direction serving several purposes.

"The focus is firmly on the user experience being heightened and forging a greater connection to landscape."

The Headland has won Housing Industry Association and Master Builders Association awards.

Ms Durham said their priority was to furnish and style Headland House in a way that supported the ocean and hinterland views.

"We wanted pieces that compelled you to sit and soak in the breathtaking landscape at every opportunity," she said.

"We added balance, warmth and texture to offset the strong lines of the design, and we selected timeless and unobtrusive pieces that nurture and celebrate the outlooks."
