The client is a retired architect and desired to incorporate his lifetime dreams into his own home, using the elevated homesite to his architectural advantage. Being from America, the garage was not to face the street (as we do in Australia), and large open interconnected spaces throughout were a must, as was an impressive gourmet chef’s kitchen overlooking the ocean. This home is an entertainers delight!


Design concept was provided. We incorporated the structural needs into the home working closely with the client to maintain the multiple split-level home and its visual features, incorporating ocean views available from the back end of the entire top storey, and a large pool for entertaining. Internal colours typically inspired by American trends make this home a stand out.


This house is a stone’s throw from the ocean however, Coastal Requirements required careful product and material selection. Being a steep site requiring a split-level home provided plenty of challenges from a three storey pier extending below the inground pool to the roof, all of which were foreseen and addressed before construction began. Once completed, this home is impressive, both inside and out!

"It's like living in a 24/7 resort style home"

Building my home with Edward Brewer homes was a joy, the design was difficult because of the steep slope and large open plan. It took only 10 months to build after the slab was down. Our home has a lot of northern light with multiple rooms and spaces we use at different times of the year. It's like living in a 24/7 resort style home.
