Secluded luxury waterfront home Narooma
The brief given to the architect was simple;
1.The house must fit into the landscape, not dominate it.
2. It should be north facing, and be energy efficient.
3. Where possible every room must optimise the magnificent views.
4. It should be designed for two people; guests stay in the cottage.
5. All the rooms should be individually spacious,
6. Lounge, dining, library/TV should be open plan for entertaining.
A spacious 200 square metre luxury home designed to be part of Hobbs Point, not to dominate it, with tiled floors, lime washed timber ceilings, and strategically placed double glazed windows to optimise the glorious views. No effort has been spared to enhance energy efficiency. The kitchen has stainless steel bench tops plus a granite top for pastry making.
Hobbs Point Cottage
Hobbs Point Cottage was architect designed as stand alone accommodation for visiting family and friends. The building is north facing and is sited 50 metres from the waters edge. It is completely self contained, largely open plan, with a lounge, kitchenette, bedroom and bathroom, and a covered deck overlooking the inlet. It is designed to sleep two, but there is room for an extra bed if needed. As with the house, it too has the same tiled floors, lime washed cathedral timber ceilings and multiple large windows with spectacular views of the inlet and majestic trees.
A Cottage Business ?
For a number years the cottage has operated as a self contained holiday letting. You can read what our guests thought of the cottage in reviews.
