Room with a view – This striking contemporary abode is an expertly crafted example of a home that wows visitors and enables its inhabitants to kick back, relax and enjoy their lifestyle.
This home is spacious, contemporary, clean and functional, with a sprinkling of luxury thrown in for good measure.
For this retired couple, a home that ticked the opulence box was important. The clients wanted a residence that presented beautifully and accommodated themselves and their grown-up sons when they came to visit. Bellmarch Homes was the builder of choice to bring this client’s home to life, having been referred to these homeowners via other clients, and selected because of its excellent track record building exceptional luxury homes in and around Sydney.
The home is situated in Terrigal, NSW, a sought-after corner of the world. It is less than two hours to Sydney’s city, and is a beautiful stretch of coastline with a stunning beach and excellent accessibility to outdoor activities such as fishing, swimming, surfing, boating, diving and scenic walks.
The home is a stunning architecturally constructed abode that peeks over the canopy of the trees around it, reaching above the tree line with its four floors. It capitalises expertly on its vista out to the ocean.
The home celebrates a theme of water throughout every space, starting with that view out to sea. This is complemented by a luxurious infinity-edge pool that reaches out towards the horizon, and an indoor water feature that ties in beautifully with the theme of the home.
“Our brief was to optimise the views out towards the ocean, make the most of open-plan living, as well as capitalise on the outdoor lifestyle the homeowners could enjoy here", explains Mark Cairney of Bellmarch Homes. “The homeowners also wanted to bring a sense of opulence to the residence which - as luxury builders – we were well-equipped to do”.
The home features many luxury inclusions across it’s floors. Extensive use of glass helps to maximise the views and allows light to flood the home. Floor-to-ceiling sliding doors also facilitate these views, as do the ceiling height windows found throughout.
Although water is an integral part of the home’s theme, it also meant Bellmarch Homes needed to do some careful planning. “The home’s position so close to the ocean meant that preservation and resilience to corrosion were concerns” explains Mark. “Other challenges we encountered included a 20cm gradient over the build envelope and restricted access."
Despite these challenges, Bellmarch Homes could deliver this spectacular home to its clients, enabling them to make the most of their lifestyle here.
