David Reid Homes Shoalhaven Beach Hideaway
David Reid Homes Shoalhaven created this hideaway for Jervis Bay home owner, Laura-Lee Chick. Laura-Lee and her family enjoyed many a well-deserved break in their old fibro beach shack. With their family now growing, including five adult children and seven grandchildren, it was time for more than a facelift of major proportions. So much so, that this became a complete demolition and reconstruction project while still retaining the comfy beach house appeal and cosy beachside holiday feel that Laura-Lee and her family had all grown to know and love.
David Reid Homes Shoalhaven builder, David Reid, built a magnificent, extensive timber home with an open plan and enough room for all three generations to share without getting under each other’s feet. Included in the design are five generous bedrooms, two living rooms, three bathrooms and a fireplace for those chilly winter nights. Extensive decks complement restful landscaping and link the outdoors to the comforts of the interior. Add to that the incomparable views of Jervis Bay from the upper deck and they have 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 globally and incorporating them into this architectural 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 into the design compliments the natural surroundings of the ancient volcanic rocks and beautiful golden sands of the Jervis Bay area. Ample staircases with 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 which 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 home in its kitchen even includes a scullery! This is perfect for Laura-Lee as a keen entertainer of numerous guests. The entrance to the ensuite has been built to offer privacy which was one of her requirements. These changes were seamlessly handled as the project was under construction.
Jervis Bay, and specifically Hyams Beach, present a magnificent outlook 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.”
