Despite being first-time home builders, this family had crystal clear instructions for us: design and build a high spec forever home capturing the incredible park and beachfront location. We didn’t need to be asked twice! The result is a sleek contemporary home with unparalleled connection with it’s setting.
Most GN Williams homes, including this one, are built for between $500,000 and $1.5million.
With a premium park and beachfront location in Thirroul, this family visited “every display home, everywhere” in search of their perfect future home! When they couldn’t find the perfect fit for them, they realised a custom design and build was the answer to deliver a home with living, kitchen and dining areas upstairs, and an expansive balcony to take advantage of the setting.
There’s no doubt that the position and characteristics of the kitchen/living/dining space was the driving force behind the design of this home. The entire front of the upper level opens up, thanks to two sets of epic 3m high by 5.6m wide stacker doors. A huge balcony reaches out to the amazing pine trees, parkland and beach beyond. This family has four children so we also designed a roomy rumpus room at the back of the lower floor, opening directly to a protected outdoor living zone and pool.
This house could have been called the ‘butterfly house’. Best appreciated from slightly afar, the roofline on this home ‘folds’ in the middle, allowing the front of the roofline to extend dramatically upwards and outwards towards the ocean like a wing. Even if you’re not a roof aficionado (you’re not??), you can’t help but admire the vast and uninterrupted outdoor space the roof allows. The finishes on this house are beautiful, yes, and simple, but also made to endure some serious coastal conditions for a very long time.
We couldn't be happier with the GN Williams team and the beautiful home that we have built with them. We were very particular with even the smallest details but nothing was out of the question for them.Rebecca and Kane, Thirroul
