Delivering sun-soaked living on a southfacing site is no easy feat. But it’s not impossible. This clever Karaka Lakes residence is proof. Positioned in line with the street-facing garage, a cunning annexed living room offers total relaxation. Glazed on both ends, it’s a superb addition to the design with doors opening for airflow and access to outdoor living.

Built to serve a young family, the home’s 318sqm floor plan delivers four bedrooms, three bathrooms, two living spaces and a modern kitchen. The master ensuite is fully equipped with freestanding bathtub.

Polished concrete flows through the home, including bedrooms, offering thermal mass for passive solar gain. The two-storey abode basks in morning sun. Lush views provide a relaxing backdrop to daily life. The scullery, central island and an adjoining deck complete the entertainer’s dream of a kitchen.

Vertical louvre screens offer privacy from the street, simultaneously drawing attention to the towering gable form. The striking street appeal is enhanced by crisp white horizontal weatherboards.
