We often see heritage homes across Australia get a modern makeover on the inside while the street façade is untouched and kept intact for obvious reasons. Nestled in a neighborhood filled in heritage homes the is a contemporary residence that embraces some of the classical characteristics to blend in with its historic surroundings.
Every space inside the three-level home is blessed with beautiful views of the distant sea and the landscape just outside. An even more breathtaking aspect of the escape is the study that cantilevers above the main house and extends outside in a striking manner.
It is easy to fall in love with this Aussie beach house not just because of the views on offer but also thanks to the interior that is entirely draped in wood. There is almost a sculptural appeal about it wall; with the wooden interior morphing and changing as it meanders through the different rooms.
In-ground lighting around the house and a curated garden add to the beauty of this innovative house where there is absolutely no shortage of color character of greenery. With the bedrooms neatly tucked away in the rear and the dining and kitchen area serving as an extension of the living room the balance between privacy and unabated view is spot on.
It is the patio that creates a transition zone between the contemporary interior and the more rustic backdrop and also links different rooms of the house with a common visual element. Panoramic views of the ranch around the house add to its interior quality even as the décor is kept elegant and unassuming. A tranquil retreat that also feels modern!
