Description

The Boatshed by Jo Aitken


This World Architecture Award Finalist was designed by Jo Aitken of Atelier Aitken - just 'one back' from Omaha Beach down the private walkway, with stunning sea views across the bay to Ti Point and Leigh.

The design team were meticulous with every proportion of the project and build - from the elegant and minimal structure to the cabinet maker and builder who both believed in the vision and lovingly created the building and cabinetry single handedly.

The detailed bespoke cedar screen is a striking contrast over colorsteel and glass resulting in a dramatic effect. Upon entering through the solid boatshed door the statement oak bookshelf runs double height across two levels with the stair treads cantilevering from it, dividing the twin gabled forms - with sleeping quarters to the east and living quarters to the west.

A combination of timbers throughout the home creates texture, lightness and warmth with handcrafted oak herringbone flooring in the living areas on the upper level enhanced by impressive suspension lighting. The designer kitchen complete with scullery is handcrafted from stained oak with large sliding windows infusing an abundance of natural light. Voluminous sliding glass doors in the main upper living areas showcase the sea views. The master bedroom boasts a clever design of cabinet 'pods' leading into the striking ensuite with angled skylight. Three additional bedrooms are located on the lower level - flowing effortlessly outside through sliding doors, along with the family bathroom and second living area. A fifth bedroom/study and guest w/c are conveniently located on the upper level accessed by the internal bridge from the living areas.

Multiple outdoor areas and the stylish landscaped yard add to the vast list of features this exclusive property presents in this sought after address. Call to register your interest and for further information.
