THIS remarkable home has a key difference to others – there are no squares.
Purposely designed that way, it leads to a distinct feeling of the walls receding, with a feeling of space and light taking over.
Owner Wayne said space was the main design consideration.
“There are no square walls; it results in another dimension with the walls going away from you,” he said.
“The ceilings are very high, with the kitchen being four courses higher than normal.”
The kitchen is indeed impressive; it is stunningly elevated above the dining and living areas and accessed by two large steps.
White cabinetry is beautifully offset by the rich grain of blackbutt flooring and there is ample cupboard and bench space and quality stainless steel appliances.
The master bedroom follows the same design rule of not being square.
The ensuite is big with a double vanity and large shower recess.
The master suite has private access to the outdoor entertaining area.
Minor bedrooms are king-size with extra big mirrored built-in robes.
Outside, the entertaining area is under a trey ceiling with ceiling fan under the main roof of the home.
For those who like mechanical objects, the 70sq m garage alone will impress.
It is extra high and wide with a built-in workshop.
“It’s built for old boys and their toys,” Wayne said.
Wayne and his wife Lyn bought the 570sq m property due to its proximity to the natural environment.
“My wife has always had an affinity with the estuary,” he said.
“Her father was one of the last estuary fishermen.
“This property is close and we love it, but we have an opportunity to buy on the waterfront and it is an opportunity to downsize.”
