RENOWNED ARCHITECT'S RENOVATED FAMILY BEACH HOME
Coastal architect Josh Crosbie has built a well earned reputation for designing and project managing the restoration of original beach homes and their surrounds that enhance both their beauty and practicality whilst retaining their warmth and character. And now a unique opportunity has arisen to acquire his own family home which has been featured in The Age and Herald Sun and is a fine example of this architect's skill and flair.
The centrepiece of the house is an elevated open space with a U-shaped central kitchen flanked on both sides with living and dining areas overlooking the ocean on one side and a beautiful natural landscaped environment on the other. The ocean view side features a 50m2 entertaining deck with Turkish travertine tiles and a long deck along the entire front façade which allows for the beautiful French doors that open from each of the 3 ocean side bedrooms. The living areas ooze character and warmth with feature exposed original internal beams, polished timber floors and stone fireplace. Every part of the renovation involves the highest quality materials including hand made Moroccan tiles, bluestone floors to wet areas, double glazing, stone benchtops, Smeg appliances and even an original PH5 light pendant in the sitting room.
The lower level of the house includes a self contained studio, double garage and huge fully lined and shelved storage room with concrete floor. The generous 874 sqm corner allotment allows for drive through vehicle access to the garage and driveway parking for 4 additional cars.
Externally the house is a thing of beauty and blends into it surrounds, being clad in beautiful silver top ash, a native bushfire resistant hardwood, using bronze nails imported from the USA. The landscaping is extensive and includes 30 tonnes of granite boulders, recycled jarrah giant sleepers, convict hand-pecked sandstone blocks from the late 1700's sourced from Tasmania and fresh indigenous planting with 2 irrigation systems. There are also 3 amazing tree houses incorporated into the eucalypts at the rear, along with the largest in ground trampoline available and an illuminated rock climbing wall complete with custom crash mat.
If all this is not enough, there are also approved plans and permits for an upstairs extension incorporating a huge ocean view master bedroom with ensuite and parents retreat.
Truly a unique and desirable coastal property.
