STUNNING ARCHITECTURAL SEASIDE COTTAGE CONVERSION … NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART
Do not judge this book by its streetscape cover; it is a novel worth the time in discovery of its internal beauty.
The shell of the original louvred cottage dates back to the days when this suburb was a collection of fishing shacks and cane farmer retreats scattered along a sandy beachside track. Now brought into the modern era beyond the historic façade, it has been opened up and extended with award winning style. The result is a clever fusion of minimalist ambience, combining elements of stunning simplicity and luxury.
The garden features unusual and rare combinations of natives and exotics and is an integrated statement piece of its own, being only one of two local gardens designed by Anton van der Schans who won international recognition for his creation of the Singapore Sky Garden.
Consisting of three bedrooms and three bathrooms with plenty of unobtrusive storage. The now open form of the original cottage is retained as a timber louvred “verandah space” - for eating, relaxing and enjoying the ocean views. The rear of the cottage has been extended as detached private spaces connected by elevated walkways, also oriented to the garden with glimpses of the Coral Sea and the central granite pool creating a relaxing Zen sense of calm.
Deliberately cooled by sea breezes and clever plantings this is a home for the ages. Purposefully designed to live with the vagaries of its tropical environment it will appeal to a very discerning new owner looking for an escape from the hectic pace of present day society. Do not be disappointed, call Deb or Chris to arrange your private inspection as opportunities will be limited.
