Clean and crisp, perched here on the rugged sea coast, you rest on the edge of possibility in this near-new, John-Cobb built home. Like a bird of paradise, it lets your mind take flight into an endless sky.
With the large, contemporary feel of an aircraft hanger, its simple minimalism is softened by touches of nautical and exotically infused design. The huge projecting roof shelters the top and main floors, while the tent-like design of the courtyard deck-and-pool space concocts the simplicity of a single volumetric form.
Clutter and confusion has been sifted away to bring to the surface one of the most forward-looking and free-thinking showcase of modern industrial beachfront design.
The main living area, combined with the front pool and deck space, is its true epicentre, heralded by the bleached exterior timber deck which captures the warm touch of the natural sun and the deep midnight tone of the pool.
The home's central floorplan angles itself around the pool-and-deck-filled courtyard and negotiates against the inclining landscape. With direct views through the main floor to the ocean beyond, this sees an endless continuum of possibility.
Its strikingly modern silhouette evokes an almost mathematical concept of balance without perimeters. Yet while the entire pool area is beautifully lit by the flood of sun, there is a dark and ambient play through a meshing of minimalism and exoticism through the dusky deco within.
A slew of complementary tones are splashed throughout all three levels.
With an impressive use of space, large-cut Portuguese limestone tiles evoke the reflection of a dream. Spirituality is subtly suggested through the simple and elemental play of light and shadow, while there is a gentle blend of aeronautical and nautical styling … of the wing and the air, but also the movement of ship's aesthetics.
Further within - and towards the intoxicating pull of the sea - a 10m length of exterior glass stacker doors across the open living-dining-cooking floor make the ocean beyond the predominant façade, allowing for beauty to flourish in its natural state.
Spatially defined by a series of unfolding spheres and floors, the outdoor pool blends with the indoor living and on to the second outdoor entertaining area facing the ocean.
The interior palette - of concrete, white, light and dark bones - provides a calm and simple accompaniment for effortless living. UV-skylights adorn the ceiling, while the moving picture fireplace takes centre stage in the the 7m by 11m living/lounging space.
Drifting to your right, the professional grade kitchen is a contemporary culinary masterpiece, completing the light and inspiring aesthetic in the dining and living area. Glistening stainless steel benchtops and Miele appliances are complemented by the spacious butler's pantry.
To its left, sits the kitchen and formal dining area's more informal but equally gorgeous sister space … a beautiful eating nook which garners bounteous ocean views and breezes through the sheer size of one of the home's many airplane-inspired windows with custom-designed and built hydraulic opening system. This is an area dedicated to lingering meals or cocktails with friends or family of an evening.
A plummeting staircase just opposite the main bathroom leads to the kingly guest quarters below, which pour out into the grassy slopes of the back lawn and the sea-splashed horizon.
Almost a complete home in itself, there is built-in beach seating in the media-lounge, while a kitchenette behind hideaway bi-fold doors and the bedroom with stackers doors to the lawns and pandanus exude class and simplicity of lazy summer days.
Back above and tucked behind the main bathroom are the pool-facing office (with potential to be converted to an additional guest room or workspace).
Lifting up towards the heavens and the third and final floor of the property is the master level, complemented by a second, private guest quarters. With invisible walls opening up to another pristine white, ocean-facing deck, being within this sphere is the next best thing to being at the beach.
With light, luxury, and large space, the only thing missing here is the sand underfoot.
Pushing the boundaries between indoor and outdoor, the deck wraps around from the north to east, while a full height wall mirror is perfectly positioned to bounce the beautiful views within the bedroom, hall, and ensuite … where the open shower with ocean-facing louvers and the enormous bath with hydraulic window welcomes the sea into your soul with your early-morning soak.
