Property of the month goes to a beach side Balmoral residence in Sydney’s Lower North Shore.
Newly rebuilt, positioned high enough for spectacular views across the beach and out to the ocean, yet close enough for the sea salt breeze. This property is glamourous and elegant with dark stained parquetry floors spanning throughout, a stark contrast to the stunning Carrara marble accents and off white walls with original plaster cornices.
As you enter a large timber staircase with a raw iron pendant light hangs above you, framing the view.
Feature lighting positioned meticulously over the artwork creates immediate focus, an instant statement. Following the parquetry floors, through to the combined lounge and dining opens up to large bi-fold doors, stacking back, bringing the outside in. A large outdoor entertaining and dining space that feels like one.
Drawing on the features of this uniquely masculine property we have incorporated bold elements, tones and textures emphasising the space, while creating warmth in the property.
Mixtures of raw elements such as timbers and linens throughout encourage flow and contrast, with muted tones in different rooms making the house feel like a home, adding warmth to it.
The home features a lower level self-contained granny flat or kids retreat, with the top level balancing 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and master ensuite and walk in wardrobe. The masculine feel takes coastal chic to a new level, this shows how styling plays a huge role to be able to bring the boldness of the space, yet still creating an inviting, and welcoming one to appeal to the masses.
