Design Detail

Modern Lakeside Retreat

Discover the epitome of lakeside living with our newly completed single-story cottage, a testament to meticulous design and engineering prowess. Designed beautifully to complement an uninterrupted dream view. The three large bedrooms, including a main suite with a walkthrough robe and ensuite, offer both comfort and style. Thoughtful design and natural surroundings harmonise to create a retreat that transcends clichΓ©s, offering a modern sanctuary by the water.

External Structure and Aesthetics

Innovative design meets practicality - designed to meet intense new approvals in flooding areas, this lakeside home was also subject to high levels of acid sulphate soils. Our team engineered an approvable yet aesthetic design, elevating the home on hot dipped galvanized posts with steel bearers and joists to the floor frame.

Completely white, the home showcases a Colourbond roof, 170mm James Hardie Newport cladding and pearl white aluminium window and door frames.


Three spacious bedrooms, adorned with robes, provide a serene escape. The main suite boasts a walkthrough robe with custom cabinetry.

The main ensuite is a retreat from the world with large bath, double vanity, toilet and shower.

Main Bathroom

A practical main bathroom with three piece suite that features the turquoise brick tile - the main colour feature throughout the handed over home. The client provided tapware finishing off the accent with chrome features.

Matching laundry

A practical addition to any home, this laundry has been designed with all the beauty and practicality you could want in a utility room. Floor to ceiling cabinetry ensures there is a space for everything. The placement in the home allows the home owner to step straight down into the back yard to hang the washing.

A kitchen for entertaining

The kitchen is a focal point with a large island bench holding huge utility. White cabinetry throughout creates timeless coastal style.

Open plan living

The kitchen seamlessly blends with the living areas anchored by a client-provided gas fireplace, radiating warmth, inviting cosy evenings by the lakeside.
