This beachside family home was designed and built for a family relocating back to Australia after living in Bali for several years. They wanted their new home to not only be comfortable and functional, but to emulate the laid back and earthy aspects of their Balinese lifestyle.
Natural products such as stone cladding, oak flooring, travertine tiles and quartzite benchtops deliver an array of textures and an authentic, relaxed atmosphere. Perfect for entertaining, this home features an outdoor fireplace, a teppanyaki bar, an outdoor kitchen and a poolside hang for pre-dinner drinks – shoes off, toes in.
The swimming pool has a unique jade finish to the water colour and incorporates a bomb dive launching wall for the kids and a waterblade spillway for the grown-ups.
For the guests that simply won’t leave, there’s also a secret wine cellar hidden behind a pivot door disguised as a bookcase. Featuring a wall clad in timber wine crates, as well as loads of wine storage of course, this space comfortably seats 6 around a tasting bench made from reclaimed timber from the old Cairns Warf.
Predominately constructed with lightweight materials, this home features 5 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms and plenty of break out zones like the kids dance room, complete with a mirrored wall and oak ballet barre. Situated a short stroll to the pristine Bokarina Beach, this home is the entertainers dream and a perfect backdrop to the carefree beachside lifestyle the owners hold dear to heart.
