WAGSTAFFE HOUSE:

 

A charming boat house fronting Brisbane Water on the Central Coast, designed in the theme of 'Coastal Hamptons' which incorporates styles of the classic Hamptons home; pitched roofs, ornate white timbers and lining boards, but does so in a more relaxed coastal way. Upon entering the home you are immediately met with a framed view of the water beyond, standing in a one and a half height entry area the ceiling then steps up to a full double height volume creating a feeling of grandeur, light and space, continuing your procession to the heart of the home you are presented with an open plan living space with sparkling water views captured by frameless corner glazing, warm timber textures of the floors and exposed beams and a sense of warmth and comfort with a fireplace with stone hearth.
Externally the natural sandstone anchors the home, with lighter weight varied width cladding over, capped off by a standing seam metal roof with v-groove eaves lining over exposed rafter tails. 
This home also pays homage to the nautical theme of the the fishing cottage it replaces and the nautical style architecture of Wagstaffe town.
