Dress-Circle Setting and Dramatic Coastline Views for this Architect Designed Masterpiece


Auction Location: The Arc, 45 Watt Street Newcastle.

Innovatively designed by Bourne + Blue Architecture, the dramatic raw appeal of this contemporary beach house is matched by its magnificent location that places the natural coastline and Glenrock as its art. In a dress-circle street, its clever design celebrates the stunning vistas across the beach, ocean and city. The inspiring architecture and Scandi-inspired interiors, in an organic palette of timber and stone, are designed over three levels with oversized windows that let in beautiful natural light and glass doors that peel back to seamlessly create sensational indoor-outdoor living and entertaining.

Tucked from the street to create a wonderful sense of privacy, a courtyard entrance and a bold façade in a mix of burnt brick and commercial grade aluminium makes a statement. Inside, polished concrete and recycled timber flooring, a mix of Huon pine and Sydney bluegum cabinetry along with a sloping hooped pine ceiling create interest and texture softened by the elegance of designer Danish pendant lighting. Clerestory windows allow northerly light to drift into every corner of the living space while louvres allow cross ventilation and the sea breeze inside.

Seamlessly expanding the open plan living and dining spaces and fitting with the clean minimalist feel, walls of glass sliders and bi-fold doors sweep back to the north facing deck.
The ultimate relaxation zone is the day bed cleverly built around a huge window that’s designed so that it almost appears to merge with the ocean. Expanses of Italian stone
provide a very functional work zone in the kitchen complete with premium appliances including a Gaggenau gas cooktop and steam oven. Air-conditioning, a gas-fired heater, under-floor heating and Sycamore ceiling fans provide climate control throughout the seasons.

Although sleek in design, this is very much a family home with designated escape spaces for children and parents. A studio upstairs with pull-down bed, ensuite and its own terrace will suit teenagers, visiting guests or an au pair. On the lower level there are three bedrooms, master with ensuite, a family bathroom and huge laundry. Adjoining the bedrooms is a family room with access to an ocean view deck, the swimming pool and a Finnish sauna. Back on the main level but separate from the living space is an executive home office.
Thoughtful design features ensure perfect comfort including a powder room on the living level, an abundance of valuable storage, ducted vacuuming, internal access to the double garage, in-built speakers, multiple custom bookcases and a temperature controlled 1000-bottle wine cellar.

Completely unassuming with its tucked away street presence, this residence makes for a comfortable and intimate home. Situated in a quiet cul-de-sac amongst esteemed properties, stairs at the end of the street take you directly to the ocean baths and allow you to stroll to local bars, cafes and beach walks that extend from Merewether to Nobbys.
