“This mindblowing 5,000 square foot ocean-front luxury villa sits in one of Bali’s most spectacular settings on the rocks of Uluwatu directly facing one of the Island’s iconic waves, Impossibles. With its turquoise shutters, panoramic view and chic understated yet meticulously detailed design, Mandala. The Rocks. is truly the ultimate beach house.”
A salty tang is in the air and the rhythmic crash of waves provide the sound track. Interiors are light and bright with blonde wood furniture, a washed out colour palette of whites and sands with accents of black. The look is relaxed but sophisticated with an emphasis on natural textures. It’s summer at the beach in Australia. It’s Noosa style by CLO Studios.
This is pretty much my dream home right here. Funky vintage mash-ups on the interior with modern artwork and a black exterior with coloured stone and decking and A RIVER in your backyard AND multiple outbuildings to have your own personal space along with a space to shoo partner/children to keep them out of your hair. Sounds absolutely perfect to me. For sale via The Modern House.
Conjuring the American bayou with its black cladding and superb situation on the banks of the River Rother, Chandlers Reach occupies the longest private river frontage in Rye. Consisting of a main house and a series of converted outbuildings, accommodation extends to almost 4,000 sq ft, with parking for several cars, a garage, substantial 200 ft garden, and uninterrupted views across the diverse natural habitat of Romney Marshes, to the sea beyond. The main house is arranged over two levels, with five bedrooms in all. Painted-timber floors and internal cladding of timber and corrugated steel contribute to the wonderful tapestry of materials within, resulting in playful and uplifting aesthetic throughout. Spanning the considerable length of the property are three outbuildings. Two of these have been converted into self-contained studios, with one currently earning significant income through holiday rental (the house is also a popular choice for location shoots). The third is used as a creative studio and office but is plumbed for use as accommodation.
I think if I win the lottery (and I’m talking a big one) I might just be able to afford this Great Mackeral Beach home by award-winning architects Casey Brown. With views across Pittwater to Lion Island, Barrenjoey Headland & the iconic Palm Beach coastline, once inside, it’s like the house is floating on water. Stumble down to the beach or just relax, drinking in that view from your modern day beach shack. Link here while it lasts.
Just down the road from the last house is this little white cottage built in 1847 but now a sophisticated home for modern living. Perhaps not as grand as the last house but a little more to my liking. Less housework anyway 🙂 Link here while it lasts.
