Set over two prized beachfront blocks of land in Busselton, it’s hard to believe this stunning landmark residence was previously a 1980’s plain brick bungalow.
This luxury Tallwood home cleverly combines the highest quality construction and finishes with a relaxed and stylish ambience.
The brief given to Tallwood Constructions by thier client was to keep the basic structure of the home but “bring it kicking into the next century”, and this goal has certainly been achieved.
The striking facade of the Mediterranean-inspired home features extensive use of Yallingup limestone cap rock cladding, which is contrasted with the grey Modwood decking and Ocean Blue cross-cut travertine floor tiles.
The home’s new design showcases the smooth integration of indoor and outdoor living. There’s no doubt the focus is firmly on those spectacular ocean views. Opening up the wide bi-fold doors which run across the front of the home brings the feeling of being right on the beach, looking straight out into the vast Indian Ocean. The spacious ground floor living and dining areas are open plan with the option to segregate each space, thanks to a bank of glass concertina doors. This is especially handy during the winter months, when the stone-clad corner fireplace brings warmth to this area.
On the first floor, the home offers an additional living area with built-in study nook, a small second kitchen and large alfresco entertaining area, with ocean views of course, creating the option of a completely self-contained space.
At the rear of the home, an outdoor beach shower is set within a stone feature grotto, providing a charming feature with a Mediterranean feel as well as a practical use. This are also offers a stone cascade water feature which is contrasted by Kimberly Stone and exposed aggregate paving.
The results speak for themselves, with the company winning 21 HIA building awards in 2009.
