This extensive 5 bedroom property was designed for a couple to accommodate their growing family with grandchildren. The direction is a modern, low maintenance, relaxed beach house that nods to a ‘contemporary’ New Hamptons style. This is embodied through dark timber floors and finishes, as well as a roof shape that hints at the ‘widow’s lookout’, a common marker of New Hampton style houses. The property has highly bespoked details, the owners being avid readers meant their extensive book collection was an integral feature within the house. Most notably a beautiful joinery gallery was designed specifically to encase the owners ‘sumo’ books. The aspect of the property also significantly influenced the architecture, an internal courtyard effectively captures and projects northern light into the home, while simultaneously offering protection from the north easterly and westerly winds. An extensive free covered terrace and first floor balcony allow living areas and master suite to seamlessly flow to the north, the reserves and overlook the beach.
