This large 3-story family home was designed to make the most of the northerly aspect, and allow all rooms in the house to have a rural and sea view.
Soil conditions and the sloping site meant the house required extensive foundation and piling work to anchor the house to the hillside. This was the most demanding part of the job, but as is the case with most houses once the foundations were accurately positioned and in place, building the rest of the house was relatively simple.
The majority of the house is on concrete floors, supported on a combination of concrete block walls, and steel posts and beams.
Where timber framing is used, the exterior cladding is a mixture of Western Red Cedar weather boards, Insulclad and â€œStutexâ€ stone. The stone is used as feature on most columns and the front entry area of the house.
The northern side of the house has tiled deck areas to all three levels. The house has a double garage at both ends of the main level, with the formal entry in the center of this main level.
â€¢ Size: 600 sq m plus 150 sq m of decks
