Oceanview Hilltop Home & Pool

Perched atop a hill ten minutes south of Bateman’s Bay, this house takes in views where land converges with the ocean and sky extending as far as the eye can see.

An inviting long entry hall serves as a prelude to the bright and spacious home. Upon entry into the open plan living area, the ceiling lifts as expansive glass panels showcase the panoramic ocean vista creating a beautiful and definite sense of arrival.

The living room sits within a large central volume enclosed by a skillion roof that sits higher than the bedroom and kitchen sections. This intentional design enabled the incorporation of operable clerestory windows on both sides of the room, bathing it in natural light whilst also promoting cross-breeze ventilation.

The kitchen is perfectly positioned with a direct view to the pool area, convenient access to the sheltered BBQ outdoor space and faces the open dining area for effortless living and entertaining. The kitchen design also incorporates a spacious kitchen island and a convenient butler’s pantry.

A large picture window extends a warm welcome in the master bedroom. A sanctuary within a sanctuary, where the ever-changing horizon can be viewed from the comfort of bed. The master bedroom enjoys an ensuite, and walk-through robe, while two additional bedrooms on the upper level share a luxurious freestanding bathtub.

Down the hall, a timber stairway leads down to a self-contained living space tucked into the hillside. Its’ outdoor area is flanked by a towering stone-clad retaining wall before the landscape returns to its’ natural contours, creating two separate level outdoor areas.

As part of our client’s brief, the positioning of windows throughout the house were meticulously planned to ensure that neighbouring houses remained unseen, with all views directed towards the lush treetops and expansive ocean views.

The home’s outdoor spaces were carefully considered during the design process. The heated pool sits positioned to capture the views whilst remaining sheltered from wind and natural elements, tucked away in its own private enclave. The BBQ / outdoor area is fully covered and accessed easily from the house encouraging the enjoyment of the space.

The house exterior has a harmonious blend of materials, such as stone cladding, Colorbond and rendered concrete block which is complimented by textured grey tiling to the outdoor spaces. The colour palette blends beautifully with the landscape that surrounds it making the house a striking presence atop the hill without being ostentatious.

Our wonderful retired clients now have a home where their grown children, along with their own families, can return and create cherished memories for many years to come.
