Designed with a certain nostalgia, this new weekender takes the best of the fibro shack. Simple amenity in a beautiful location and interprets it with contemporary materials and the essentials of sustainable design.
The two pavilions of this thoroughly modern house are reminiscent of the simple fibro beach houses of the 1950s and 1960s, iconic settings for summer holidays on the South Coast of New South Wales. Generous light-filled rooms and lofty ceilings give a welcome 'laid back' feeling. The perfect backdrop for large or small family gatherings or quiet weekends.
An informal gravel track overhung with gums, acacias and hakeas brings you from the street to the private battleaxe block. The classic dry coastal woodland canopy supplies the house and garden with dappled light, and the prevailing coastal breezes ripple through the tree tops. The northeast orientation brings morning light into the living and sleeping spaces. You are within a five-minute walk of the main beach and the surf beach and there is easy access to Broulee island and to the weekly Moruya markets. Once here, the car is forgotten and many adventures are within walking distance.
Accommodation is in two 'pods' linked by an open walkway and is flexible for a range of family and friendship group compositions. The 'long house' has a master bedroom and a generous bathroom (with washing machine) plus the kitchen and large living/dining areas. The smaller 'pod' has 3 more double bedrooms (one with bunks) and a second full bathroom. The informal character of the house is shown in its hot and cold outdoor showers, the plywood floors and ceilings, its commercial style kitchen benches and the ability to open up the main pavilion on both sides to link indoor space with the timber decks outside.
