Upolu Esplanade

This site is directly across from the beach and has uninterrupted views of the beach and ocean. The client was keen to catpture this amazing view from both their bedroom and the living room and kitchen. To fully appreciate the view, the master bedroom on the lower level has been elevated by almost 1 metre which also creates interest in the entry with the lap pool and ground floor indoor and outdoor living rooms being at ground level with the bedrooms up a few steps. Polished concrete floors feature on both levels.

As the site is quite narrow, the car parking has been located to the rear of the site to avoid taking up any of  the frontage. 

This stunning house continues as you go up the custom designed timber stairs with black steel stringers and glass balustrade. Upstairs includes a large living / dining / kitchen open plan area as well as large sliding doors across the full frontage of the house opening onto a verandah which has a BBQ area and bar fridge. This verandah area can also be semi enclosed with automatic roll down blinds which can be good to screen from the sun, breezes and insects at different times of the day or year. 

There is also an office upstairs that can double as an extra bedroom with bunk beds that were custom built by the client. 

The biggest feature of the interior is the recycled timber, purchased by the client in Victoria and transported and built into kitchen and bathroom bench tops and stairs, also by our very talented client.
