Design, comfort, and care for the environment were major concerns in building this dramatic contemporary residence.

This cutting edge two storey townhouse on a beachside corner in Black Rock, is focused around a central palazzo courtyard with a resort style swimming pool accessible from both floors. A striking Red staircase outside descends from the central alfresco area with a louvered roof. All rooms over look this central courtyard with a sense of relaxation.

The double glazed Low E glass windows and huge central courtyard capture every ray of light, while the inspirational addition of lightweight Alucobond screens allows winter brightness and excludes the hot summer sun. The architect himself lives in this superb three bedroom home. Each luxury bedroom has its own ensuite, while a separate powder room caters for visitors.

The wooden entrance opens to spotted gum flooring inside, contributing to the natural feel of an inviting home. A sleek, white kitchen breathes elegance. The creative design surprises with a stained timber feature at the top of the carpeted winding stairway that leads to the streamlined living spaces.

There is zoned living for reduced heating and cooling, as well as underground water tanks.

This is a stunning quality home built for a sophisticated lifestyle.
