Inspired by the classic Australian beach house, this three-bedroom home is an early occupant in the developing suburb of Hope. Taking pride of place on an elevated section, the twin gable frontage and striking palette of white-on-white make a bold impression.
Designed in an H shape, its two pavilions provide a sheltered entry to the home. Leading to the front door, a kwila deck extends a warm invitation. Inside, panelled feature walls recall the home’s coastal inspiration.
At 184sqm, this impressive home delivers over and above its modest budget. White, bright and light-filled, the three-bedroom, two-bathroom residence feels generous and spacious. Volume is amplified by a high scissor-truss ceiling that extends from the open-plan kitchen, dining and living space, then out over an alfresco area and kwila deck. Connecting to the south-eastern pavilion, the deck has a private link to the main bedroom through a ranch slider. The kitchen is crisp in white and the generous pantry is a bonus.
The tiled family bathroom provides understated elegance with a freestanding bath, floor-to-ceiling windows, terrazzo-style tiles, and brushed nickel tapware. For this new home in Hope, life is a beach.
