This new home, minutes’ walk from the beach, is made for summer entertaining. The clients are keen entertainers and beach goers, and so wanted a home that embraced their lifestyle. Dual access from adjacent streets meant that garaging could be placed to the rear of the property. Access to the main home is via a unique covered hallway which forms a bridge over the inground pool.
Downstairs there is an open living space that blends seamlessly with the large outdoor terrace and pool. The raked ceilings and open plan layout were achieved through the use of substantial steelwork and much of this has been left exposed as a design feature. The outdoor terrace is perfect for entertaining with a dining area, outdoor kitchen and covered patio. The ground floor also houses three bedrooms and two bathrooms, the porch and large entryway with staircase.
Upstairs there is a luxurious master suite that features a large open plan ensuite with an enormous freestanding tub. There is a private living area with views across the terrace below from louvred windows and a small office. Clerestory window in the master bedroom create both privacy and a sense of cloistered calm. The exterior of the home features weatherboard cladding, timber lined soffits and a feature steel louvred shade awning.
