When this fantastic Bulli family of five came to us with a slightly unusual request, we were all too happy to roll up our sleeves and deliver them this modestly sized house that packs a design punch and does justice to a premium beachside location.
Most GN Williams homes, including this one, are built for between $500,000 and $1.5million.
With a large corner block near Sandon Point in Bulli, this family enlisted assistance from the GN Williams Custom Homes team to see their vision come to life for their family home. They wanted to subdivide the block, build a smaller home for now, with a view to developing the other half of the block at a later stage to accommodate their family of growing kids. This family oozes style and although modestly sized at under 200sqm, the house had to reflect their eye for great design.
Although people say you can sometimes ‘spot’ houses designed by particular architects, what we love about designing custom homes WITH our clients is that each house can look exactly (and only) as the clients want! Entering this house, guests’ eyes go straight up to take in the feature staircase. Polished concrete floors and black features contrasting with natural fibres and colours give this home a modern beachside luxe feel.
From the street, this house is immediately impressive with a striking monolithic style wall wrapping up one side of the house and extended over to the top of the house. The facade is finished with dark vertical and horizontal Scyon panelling and recycled brick adding a textural element. A modestly sized living area still seems spacious thanks to towering ceilings and lashings of windows. Adding volume with height is a perfect way to bring something special to a space even with limited square meterage. A great example of what can be achieved with a custom design and build service.
