Climbing up the hill behind a simple weatherboard beach house is an extension that opens to the breezes and captures the view. A traditional rabbit warren of a holiday home is lifted to new heights with open plan living on the higher levels and a much needed level play space because after all this is a family home. Toys and tricycles, wet swimmers and sandy footprints trekked in. Not at all precious but a real jewel none the less. This Pretty Beach, NSW home is by David Boyle Architect.
