Parklands Avenue Somers Victoria – Large luxury private residence on a beachside property

The clients for this home had an original beach house on the property since the mid 1980’s; unfortunately the original home was outgrown and overrun by termites. The brief was for a modern beach house with sturdy low maintenance finishes. The finished product comprised of a 70 square, 3 storey split level home with a flat roof and raised parapet walls. An elevator was also included into the project for moving groceries etc and the preparation for elderly living in retirement. The landscaping was mainly coastal species native to the local area, natural river stone mulch, red gum mulch and a customized limestone and stack stone outdoor shower for rinsing off after the beach.
