Design Features

This granny flat sized holiday apartment has been designed to optimise luxury, space and the view.

The living space opens up from the entrance through to the deck and features the following beautiful touches to emphasise elegance:

  • Waterfall stone top
  • Polytech printless custom cabinetry
  • Floating timber shelving
  • Handcrafted tallowwood dining table
  • Tallow Wood T&G flooring
  • Large double glazed windows and doors.

The ensuite mirrors these features with the bedroom feeling like its’ own retreat. It features a built in daybed with underneath storage and generous windows to optimise the lake view.

The external finishes feature:

  • Designer Series CSR – Jaggered outline the bedroom
  • Fielders Longline 305 flows from walls to roof
  • James Hardy – Stria cladding wraps the main building

The front porch area uses stone and wood elements to tie it into the main building. The flooring is an exposed aggregate finish which is bordered with river stone filled gabion baskets and handcrafted timber tops.

All the handcrafted timber in this project was designed and crafted by the Build by the Sea carpentry team.
