- 2 Beds

This is the perfect lifestyle home designed for the tropics for those buyers seeking something different, privacy and seclusion and nestled just a short stroll to the beach. The owners have used their home for holidays for about 2 years solid out of 20 years since building it. The house is nestled in the midst of a grove of paperbark trees on 2,085m2 (1/2 acre) backing onto a rainforested reserve in a small quiet enclave. When the owner drew up plans she made the house's shape fit in with the trees instead of chopping any down. As a result the living area of the home sweeps around in a gentle curve nudging up against the trees while some even pop through the large entertaining timber deck.
Open plan living/dining areas and a large kitchen featuring blue opal granite benchtops coupled with soaring high ceilings, Silver Ash timber flooring and extensive use of glass throughout the home add to the tropical style of this home whilst providing magnificent views of the surrounding forest of trees.
Each of the two bedrooms feature their own ensuite and are privately located at either end of the home - the vast main bedroom complete with walk-in robe juts out at a daring angle like the bow of a boat. Both ensuites featuring white marble from Chillagoe have been designed with open showers and plenty of light to avoid the mould and mildew common in the tropics.
Unusual angles and shapes have been used throughout the home to provide interest - the curve of the living area is repeated both inside and out with the kitchen bench and the large rear entertaining verandah.
Inside the home, the owner has chosen yellow and blue as the two main colours. The idea came from a set of double door handles by Philippe Starck the owner bought in Paris. The yellow and blue perspex handles are shaped like fish and are featured on one of the rear doors. Above the kitchen, the owner has painted a very subtle mural of tropical fish in soft yellows and blues.
This secluded holiday home is now surplus to the owner's needs.
