The epitome of a sophisticated yet relaxed and casual modern Australian beach house, this home mixes urban chic with coastal cool. The high quality finish and clever combination of architectural elements is a testament to the skill of award winning WA custom builders Zorzi South.
Set high on tops of the sand dunes, overlooking the beach at Eagle Bay, the location of this landmark home was inspirational in it’s design. The organic warmth of natural timbers contrasts perfectly with the more industrial feel of a polished concrete feature wall on the staircase and the matching polished plaster of the fireplace.
The home has an understated elegance, although comes complete with every convenience one could ask for, including a customized lift and a cool room.
While the entire exterior is vertically clad in Pacific teak, the interior of the home features recycled tallow wood floorboards, painted white cedar-lined ceilings and walls and solid cedar feature cabinets.
Natural light flows effortlessly into the huge open plan living and dining space, thanks to massive double-glazed sliding stackers doors, which blur the lines between indoors and out, and allow fresh sea breezes to float gently into the home.
The crisp white-lacquered entertainer’s kitchen showcases a clean, streamlined aesthetic with a vast range of storage options, from the banks of wide drawers to the wall of overhead cabinets and the butlers pantry, keeping clutter to a minimum. Appliances include an Ilve stove, integrated dishwasher and microwave plus the all important cool room. A smooth glacier white Corian benchtop features on the large central island bench.
Wide hallways, together with the clever use of glass and carefully positioned lighting, enhance the sense of space throughout the home.
The master bedroom offers a dressing room plus a spacious and inviting open ensuite with Fontainebleau stone benchtops and floors, plus a sleek cedar wall-hung double vanity.
The teak motif is continued on the huge covered balcony, which is ideal for alfresco entertaining on a grand scale. Whether dining or lounging, point blank view of the pristine beach, wide blue ocean and rugged coastline provide the perfect backdrop.
This latest addition to the impressive Zorzi South portfolio reinforced the company’s reputation for building homes to the highest levels of craftsmanship.
