This house was purchased in original condition in March 2009, with a long-term plan for the property. The brief was to create a home for an expanding family, a second storey to take in sweeping ocean and district views and to add a secondary dwelling attached to the main house. The purpose of this was to enable overseas guests to stay for long periods of time or to provide rentable accommodation in the future.

Writing this as the wife of the designer and builder Matt for our family home.. When we first bought the property it was crumbling old red brick cottage with an outside toilet. My vision was to maximise the stunning ocean and district views, with indoor outdoor open plan entertaining areas and a  granny flat for our overseas relatives to stay for long periods. Matt nailed it, his vision and dedication has made us a stunning, warm family home. We have had our 3 children here and even got married and had our reception in the house and garden. So much love in one house!!
