Fitting a lot into a little, this new home in the beautiful beachside suburb of Merewether looks to fit 5 bedrooms, 2 Living spaces, 2 Bathrooms, Double Garage and a Lap Pool all onto a 330sqm site whilst making the most of ocean views and natural light and maintaining privacy and amenity. If we had to give it a label we'd call it contemporary eclectic with a hint of mid-century modern, others might just call it a sweet new beach house. Using a mixed external palette comprised of Hardies Stria ship-lap cladding which offers a modern interpretation of the classic clad beach shack, vertical hardwood timbers and sandstone cladding for a real sense of warmth and home, and irregular render to give a casual but still lower maintenance.

Location: Merewether Beach, Newcastle, NSW
