Waterfront Living South Golden Beach

Waterfront living was the choice for the owners of this beach house in South Golden Beach. Having two kids aged ten and seven, years the brief was plenty of room on a small budget. The decision then was to choose materials that wouldn’t cost an arm and a leg and so keep the mortgage to a minimum.

Lightweight construction was the choice with easily painted plywood cladding and timber platform floor. This was a large home with plenty of bang for their buck. Polished hardwood floors were chosen for their easy care, and healthy qualities.

Beach House Renovation South Golden

This South Golden Beach residence is a great four bedroom family beach house. Clad in mountain blue Colorbond, maintenance is reduced in this highly corrosive environment. A large outside living area is located at the back of the house starting with a generous raised wooden deck that overlooks the vegetable gardens. Great for entertaining it adjoins the kitchen and rumpus room.

The brief for this renovation project was to add a master bedroom and ensuite above the garage on the front of the house and an extra bedroom, rumpus room and laundry with a wooden deck on the back. The result is a much larger home with a bedroom retreat for mum and dad that even has their own private verandah. There is also space for the all the kids utilizing the existing bathroom as their own and giving them their own space in the rumpus room.

South Golden Beach House Addition

A unattractive nineteen eighties, two bedroom, brick and tile box was all that could be seen from the street. Hiding behind it was a beautiful waterfront block just waiting to be transformed.
With a fantastic northeast aspect looking out over the water the old house had no mojo whatsoever. But the new owner was a builder who had a vision of how we could transform her into something more suited to this special place. The property had seen four different owners in ten years. They all had a go at improvements but no-one could work out exactly what the place needed.
