This beach house overlooking the Ocean Grove bluff takes its inspiration from the natural colours reflected from the sea and sand which it sits above. The luxury renovation to this home included entirely stripping each room bare and creating an interior which was airy, bright and an oasis of calm. The views of the ocean are the masterpiece of each room and the chosen finishes simply enhance them – timber floors, copper tapware, handcut tiles and pastel accents.
The scope of this project included creating two kitchens, a laundry, three bathrooms, two staircases and a lounge. Underfloor heating was added to the bathrooms and a curved wall with 3D tiles created a feature behind the freestanding bath which is positioned to take in the views of the pool below.
The feature of the living room is the handcrafted stone double sided fireplace which presented a challenge to the stonemasons who had to carry the stone up 3 storeys!
Blending function with design was a challenge when installing a lift which spanned the three storeys. The timber which wraps the walls of the stairwell hides the liftshaft and is continued throughout the kitchen.
V-Groove cabinetry hides practical solutions within every cupboard including a wetsuit drying rack, retractable pantry doors and integrated whiteware.
This labour of love was a twelve month project where every day was a pleasure to come to work, take in the view and create a dream home for our clients.
