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.
Refurbishment of a home that is 150-years old is a task that requires sensitivity and plenty of care along with ingenuity and an ability to create space where none exists. Accomplishing all this and a whole lot more with flowing aesthetics and a touch of modern flair is the Bilbao Architecture Team who carefully altered the to meet the needs of its more modern homeowners.

A flood of natural light from above and connectivity with the garden and a small deck outside give this area a larger than life appeal and turn it into the perfect setting for a social gathering. At the end of it all is the tranquil and curated family room that enjoys unabated access to the pool even as smart design keeps out prying eyes.
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.
Clever arrangement of spaces throughout the house also ensures that the flow between one to the next is unhindered. Opening up to the backyard the rear addition invites the outdoors inside with large glass windows which take a metallic bay window form when they transition into the bedrooms and kids’ spaces.
The beautiful and seemingly timeless stone wall exterior of this dreamy Spanish home in has been left completely untouched. This not only preserves the historic charm of the residence but also creates a beautiful contrast between the polished interior and the rugged exterior.
The small Juliet balconies beautiful lighting and modern décor and shelving put the final touches on a house that feels trendy chic and yet steeped in history. It takes very special skill and vision to achieve a transformation like this while preserving the original charm of the remarkable residence.
