Perfectly located on the waterfront of Pearl Beach, this existing 1970’s home has been reimagined inside and out as the quientessential vintage beach house. Wedged between the ocean and National Park the house melds beachside and agricultural charm. The existing barn like character of the house has been retained and embellished with additions that significantly increase practicality for its owners. Externally the house is largely defined by a new whitewashed brick fireplace and sundrenched timber deck with crisp white balustrade addressing the street. These are in contrast to the with more rustic landscape features including sandstone boulders, crazy paving and timber sleepers. The interior design retains a simple Hamptons style materials palette that contrasts crisp white elements such as joinery against more robust and character laden natural natural finishes such as newly exposed rough sawn timber beams, stone tile and brass fittings. The result is a relaxed yet luxurious beach retreat.
