This rural property has one of the best views in the Byron Shire overlooking the coast from Byron lighthouse to Brunswick Heads. The existing house was in a dilapidated state, with water seeping through the walls. The house was demolished to create a new 5 bedroom house with pool.
The brief was to enhance the properties natural features and give the new house a better relationship between the inside and the outside to create level outdoor recreation areas.
The site is extremely steep and overgrown. The project required significant engineering, construction and architectural co-ordination to realise the project. The new house will have improved amenity including a new driveway and carport on level with the house, new outdoor terraced areas and generally better connection with the ground level.
