Style BEACH PAVILION
The home was designed to sit high above the site to take the best advantage of the water views to the north. Raising the home also provided an opportunity for a garage and workshop under the bedrooms.
The home sits well on the sloping site allowing easy access to upper living areas and the lower garage from street level. This has been achieved via a series of retaining walls.
The home is composed of two modules with a breezeway in-between. One module contains the kitchen and main living spaces. The other module contains two bedrooms and a large bathroom. The breezeway is roofed and glazed on both sides.
The internal floor area not including the garage and workshop is 120m2. Delivered from Blacktown to Elizabeth beach in two folded modules for a cost of $2,200 per module.
Entry to the home is via an entry deck to the breezeway. The breezeway window frames a view of the distant water that is visible as one approaches the home. The owners love the transparency of the home and the many views that can be enjoyed from any spot in the home.
Native hardwood Spotted Gum decks are at the back sitting 3.5m above ground level and protected with reclaimed hardwood posts and handrails with stainless steel wire balustrades. The deck is framed in galvanised steel members to comply with the Bushfire Attack Level of 29.
The cladding is crisp and modern. Custom orb profile in Surf Mist colorbond has been used. Monument coloured window frames and sun blades offer a good contract on the façade with feature spotted gum cladding in selected areas.
Bathroom walls are fully tiled in matt white tiles. The living area floors are covered in engineered Oak timber. The kitchen is charcoal colour with American Oak bench tops.
