David Reid Homes Shoalhaven created this incredible hideaway for Jervis Bay home owner, Laura-Lee Chick. Laura-Lee and her family enjoyed many well-deserved breaks in their old fibro beach shack. But with five adult children and seven grandchildren, the family had outgrown their home. This project became a complete knock down rebuild for the Chicks, who still wanted to retain the comfy beach house appeal feel that they had all grown to know and love, but with more space for their ever growing family.
Watch the video below for a walk inside this Hamptons inspired home.
Shoalhaven builder David Reid built a magnificent timber home with an open plan design and enough room for all three generations to share! Included in the design are five generous bedrooms, three bathrooms and large open entertainment areas with a feature fireplace and raked ceilings. expansive decks complement restful landscaping and link the outdoors to the comforts of the interior. To add to the spacious decks, they offer incomparable views of Jervis Bay from the upper deck and a perfect year-round home, whether for entertaining or just sitting back and chilling out.
“The brief for this house was a spacious, free-flowing design with large outdoor areas,” according to David Reid. “The homeowners wanted the exterior to reflect a little bit of the Hamptons style,”.
In creating the design, David Reid worked closely with the owners in researching various beach house designs and incorporating them into this incredible project. The finished product ideally marries an element of formality with the beauty of a casual beachside holiday home. While the finish on the home includes extensive use of white and limed timber, the Jervis Bay environment brings colour, natural character and texture to the entire creation.
The addition of stone compliments the natural surroundings of the ancient volcanic rocks and beautiful golden sands of the area. Ample staircases and added seating on the decks create a relaxing and comfortable environment for the owners and their guests. Laura-Lee loves the spaciousness of the house and particularly the upper deck area.
Many of the developments that became part of the finished project were made as the build progressed. “Custom building is about changes on the run, not just building the home,” David explained. “Our aim is to get it right for the client and achieve the best outcome for them.”
Laura-Lee and her family are thrilled with the way that David has worked with them in a collaborative and understanding manner. The homes kitchen even includes a scullery! This is perfect for Laura-Lee as she is a keen entertainer of numerous guests. The entrance to the ensuite has been built to offer privacy which was one of her main requirements. These changes were seamlessly handled by David and his team as the project was under construction.
Hyams Beach presents a magnificent outlook for the home with unobstructed views while the home’s unique and tailored design brings welcome privacy and an air of seclusion. Laura-Lee sums the outcome up perfectly. “It’s just a beautiful, comfortable, easily maintained home.”
