Superb street appeal and quite breathtaking upon entrance! This family beach residence is sure to impress the discerning buyer wanting a nearly new home. Offering a wonderful beach lifestyle, this classic home sits on a 715m2 parcel that backs onto the beachside boardwalk, with direct access to the pristine beaches of Casuarina.
Upon entry you are welcomed by 2.7m ceilings with square designer mouldings reminiscent of the classic Hampton homes. Burnt Oak timber flooring throughout and bespoke carpentry in every room of this luxurious home complete the look. Many fittings and finishes were imported when not locally available. No expense was spared on this home!
The heart of the home is undoubtedly the kitchen with double french doors that open our to the “Boathouse”, a covered alfresco entertaining area adjacent to the Enviro-swim freshwater swimming pool. With two living rooms and a study or fifth bedroom, the downstairs floorplan is well planned for intimate spaces or can stretch to accommodate a crowd with ease.
The upstairs bedroom wing has magnificent raked ceilings,two private balconies, exquisite bathrooms and again the bespoke cabinetry continues even through the master walk in robe. This is a sumptuous, private and elegant sleeping area.
This beach residence will not disappoint those wanting an casual beach elegance, finished with immaculate taste.
Here’s the first iteration of a design for a cottage by the sea. A charming 3 bedroom home with a focus on style, efficiency & views towards the front of the site (in this case the water). Although this home features a compact living space, this is offset by the high cathedral ceiling in the living room and the openness of the living / kitchen / meals area which all looks out towards the views. Downstairs we have the master bedroom which also features a peaked ceiling. A 2 way bathroom off this area has been included as a cost saving measure together with the euro style laundry off the hall. Further cost savings can be made by way of staging the build, with a future bathroom upstairs which is adjacent to 2 more bedrooms and an optional deck off the back of the living space. An attached garage has also been included, which can be easily modified to become a 2 car garage.
This is a modification to the Sandlewood House Design where we have changed the rooflines (substituting the skillion roofs for gables), increased the building footprint and added a third bedroom – leaning more towards the coastal cottage feel of the project and away from the contemporary. What a great 3 bedroom coastal cottage design.
This traditional 4 bedroom cottage design (or 5 bedrooms if you include the study) is a very family & budget friendly home. With all the charm of a single storey cottage (with the 2 storey area contained wholly within the roof line) this home is beautiful and homely and fits well into a street-scape dominated by single storey homes. A small fall across the site is catered for by using a mixture of concrete slab and suspended floors. The design features a master bedroom on the ground level which is well positioned away from the kids who are grouped together upstairs with 3 generous bedrooms, bathroom and study nook. An open family zone to the rear of the design captures the northern sun and the formal living provides the extra space needed as the family grows – what a great traditional 4 bedroom cottage design.
After a number of requests to see a 4 bedroom option for the coastal cottage design, I’ve decided to upload a version of the design prepared for our clients presented as an option early in the design phase. While the clients decided to go ahead with an alternative, it is good to see how a design can be tweaked without impacting too much on the basic concept or budget. While we often advise clients of their options, at the end of the day, it is up to a clients themselves to decide what is important to them, an extra bedroom, a cathedral ceiling, a playroom and so on – so many alternatives & it’s great we have a system that provides the flexibility to give our customers what they want..
