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 well-sought-after corner of the world. It is less than two hours to Sydney’s city, and is a particularly 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 treeline with its four floors; capitalising 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.“EXPERT TIP: “Don’t hesitate to consult with your custom builder before committing to initial architectural work. We have very talented architectural expertise in-house which may result in considerable savings of time and money in progressing your design and build process.””
“Our brief was to optimise the views out towards the ocean, make the most of open-plan living, as well as capitalising on the outdoor lifestyle homeowners could enjoy here,” explains Mark Cairney of Bellmarch Homes. The homeowners also wanted to bring a sense of opulence to the home, which — as luxury builders — we were well-equipped to do.”
The home includes many luxury inclusions across its 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 some careful planning needed to be enlisted by Bellmarch Homes. “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 20m gradient over the build envelope, and restricted access,” he adds.
Despite these challenges, Bellmarch Homes was able to deliver this spectacular home to its clients, enabling them to make the most of their lifestyle here.
