Dark exteriors are a bold choice. When well executed, the result can be striking, and this three-bedroom home is a prime example. Offset by warm vertical cedar features, black board-and-batten cladding and black iron roofing create moody sophistication. Step inside and dark becomes light in a crisp white palette paired with timber flooring and cabinetry. Although modest in size, every inch of this 140sqm home has been designed to enhance its sense of spaciousness. In the living area, large sliding doors take advantage of the north-facing aspect and lead to an outdoor area beneath a stylish timber pergola. With versatile spaces, it’s clear that this home is all about family flexibility. A well-considered floorplan allows for two double bedrooms and an additional room has been designed to serve as a third bedroom, office or second living area. The internally accessible carpeted garage will no doubt become a hobby haven or weekend hangout space for kids and teens. Clever use of space continues into both of the fully tiled bathrooms, which feature large walk-in showers. As a bonus, an outdoor shower can be used to wash off sand and salt from the nearby beach.
