This Northeast facing site overlooking Bream Bay was the perfect blank canvas for the architects to begin designing our clients dream home on. With a background in cabinetry and kitchen design our clients were passionate about creating a special home for their family in the heart of Langs Beach, away from the city.
The site constraints were clear from the beginning – a steep right-of-way driveway lead to the property which itself fell steeply away to the Northeast. Forming the driveway and access points into the home were tricky but not impossible on this stunning East Coast site.
Our clients wanted an open, spacious home to enjoy with their young family. This was difficult given the slope of the site but the architect's managed to make these open spaces work for both the upper and lower floors. On the lower floor is three bedrooms, a bathroom, a study nook, bunk/rumpus room and a double garage. A polished concrete floor and steps mixed with the timber and white color scheme is a stunning palette.
Upstairs is the kitchen, designed by Moda Kitchens, complete with a scullery and in-bench rangehood, which looks across the dining and family room to the view. The lounge area with a fire and TV are stepped down to create a snug space for relaxing. To the Northern end of the first floor is the master bedroom. Behind the bed is the walk in wardrobe and ensuite, with the bed facing the majestic view through the sliding glass doors.
A courtyard and deck are sheltered to the rear of the home. Tucked away from the constant sea breezes and getting the afternoon and evening sun these spaces retain the view by looking through the glass sliding doors on either side of the home. This home really is the perfect family home or bach. Spacious, light, airy....
