Only a stone’s throw from the harbour edge, this extensive new build designed by architect Mark Carnachan is a beautiful, understated and carefully considered home. After farewelling the 1950s masonry house that had long stood on this site, the new home was to appear like it has always been there. The result: a stunning, single-level, highly detailed home. The low-key look for the beach house is reflected in modern board and batten-style cedar cladding. Contemporary considerations include a light-filled open-plan kitchen, lounge and dining area with an impressive cedar-sarked vaulted ceiling. The expansive verandas and openings across the front elevation are oriented toward the water views and the Mount. These views are enjoyed from the rear of the house, right through the semi-enclosed courtyard garden and living areas to the front. The outdoor spaces are designed to appear part of the home – they are understated and blend in with the subtleties of the interiors and exterior. Every consideration went into the build of this three-bedroom, two-bathroom home. The attention to detail is testament to the craftsmanship of the builders.
