This unmissable headland home perfectly captures some of the most incredible views on the south coast, and was named winner of the 2018 Master Builder Association South East Region Custom Home $900,000-$1,000,000.
Most GN Williams homes, including this one, are built for between $500,000 and $1.5million.
This couple had one fantastically simple request: ‘when we open the front door, we should look through the entry, out over the pool and through to the headland to the south’. This home needed to take advantage of the premium waterfront location, while providing some more intimate living space and a semi-independent wing for guests.
A modern design with crisp rendered lines was ideal to draw the eye out to the view, along with extensive glazing for the views south and east, while still maximising northern solar aspects for comfortable living. A pool-centric design perfectly meets the brief, and a bridge link from living to upper level master bedroom gives the wow factor.
An extreme coastal location on the headland meant salt corrosion and exposure to strong winds needed to be considered. Structural steel cantilevered roofs designed to withstand the harsh ocean environment were used, along with suspended concrete balconies for minimal maintenance and ability to hold up to the conditions.
