Modern and striking, this minimalist cedar design soaks up serene views from its perch on a hillside in Murrays Bay. The upper level cantilevers out, giving the home depth and movement. The upper black box is anchored on a block base with vertical cedar garage door, which creates an appealing inverse effect. The ocean outlook floods in thanks to swathes of glazing. The result is an ultra-contemporary exterior and a luxurious light-filled interior. Timber and cedar screens add warmth and interest throughout the well-planned layout, which includes four bedrooms, two bathrooms and two living spaces, all arranged on 204sqm. Each room draws in the view, enhancing the connection with nature. Full-height doors and joinery foster the home’s easy flow. A sheltered internal courtyard nestles comfortably off the living spaces. This little slice of heaven is ideal for entertaining – there’s even an outdoor pizza oven. Built for a family of four, this superb home also features a sophisticated, contemporary kitchen and ample outdoor space for kids to play.
