Charming old-world coastal cottage
A perfect compromise between modern and traditional style.
This charming old-world coastal cottage has been transformed with Estruct’s restoration and extension, bringing the owner’s vision to life and imbuing every inch of the home with the bright, inviting spirit of historical beach side construction.
Today the weatherboard is as lovely as ever, with lead light windows that have been restored to its former glory, catching the afternoon sun and elegant details to capture the heritage charm of traditional coastal architecture.
This pretty family home has been reinvented by its owners. With a neat patio, glistening pool and cheerful daybed decorated with cushions and rusted wire spheres, the backyard is an entertainer’s delight with french doors to match the homes heritage feel with contemporary leanings.
On the ground floor, the home was extended to include an open plan kitchen, dining and living area, as well as a bedroom, bathroom and sitting room. The house was also extended upwards to accommodate two bedrooms and an extra bathroom. The new pitched roof and weatherboards are so in sync with the original parts of the house; it’s as if they always were meant to be there.
