This award winning, Elphick Proome, glass, ash wood, natural stone and steel,“smart” home on the beach, took 5 years of skilful planning, artisan manufactured for this environmentally friendly masterpiece which boasts approximately 450 square meters of internal, minimalistic space, 46 metre long timber balconies surround the four sides of glass living space, four en-suite bedrooms, an elevated swimming pool and hot tub above the crashing waves of your own private peninsula where your daily vision is of whales, dolphins and seals and your front garden is the beach.
The entire structure is clad in a series of electronically operated timber screens, which serve as veranda roofs when the residents are home and then drop down to form seamless security.
