This unique and impressive four-bedroom custom designed home is located in a small town on the Central Coast of NSW. With a striking exterior and many thoughtful inclusions and upgrades throughout, ‘Sunny Corner’ strikes the ideal balance between modern features, classic style and luxurious comfort.
The four bedrooms are all situated in one wing of the house, and three have direct sliding door access to the front verandah. Each of the bedrooms includes built-in robes, and bedroom 1 and 4 also have an ensuite. Louvre windows and ceiling fans are clever additions to keep things cool in summer and capture the afternoon sea breeze.
The raked ceiling and large windows bring space and light to the airy living zone. There’s access through sliding doors to the front verandah that runs the length of the house, as well as the large side decking. This makes it easy to relax or entertain outdoors and make the most of the climate and picturesque surrounds.
The kitchen is well-appointed with quality appliances, plenty of storage, stylish tiled splashback and large island bench. One design feature that really stands out is the bi-fold window that opens out to the entertaining area, perfect for alfresco dining or barbecues with family and friends.
The tiling in the bathroom and ensuites makes a statement, and the heritage tapware, cabinetry and louvre windows complete the classical look. The large freestanding bath in the main bathroom is also the ideal place to relax and recharge.
Façade and Exterior
Outside, the home is stunning, and the style is a great fit for the quiet, coastal village location. The verandah, traditional façade and stained-glass front door blend well with the blue cladding and give the home real character. The carport and enclosed storage space are both practical and stylish, and have been perfectly matched to complete the overall look.
This home has been custom designed to suit our client’s needs. Much care was taken during the design phase in choosing the colours, fitting and finishes to capture the style and create their dream home. The total cost for this project was approximately $450,000.
What our Clients Have to Say…
‘Not a day goes by that someone doesn’t comment on how amazing Sunny Corner looks!
It has been the most satisfying, fulfilling experience and the result is a house that’s a joy to be in and we are proud to own. Ken and Lester, the design and production team and all the trades people have done an amazing job. The finishes are absolutely superb, faultless.
Patonga Beach is on the Central Coast one and a half hours north of Sydney on Broken Bay at the mouth of the Hawkesbury River. It is a small fishing village separated by a national park and serviced by a road and daily ferries from Palm Beach. The village has a colourful history and a proud heritage that is valued and preserved by the community. The property has been in our family for more than 40 years and has seen four generations enjoy it. The original home was built in the 1930s, but despite several renovations and numerous repairs it was no longer serviceable. To replace this much-loved house, we wanted to preserve the feeling of the village and had a very specific style in mind. We call it ‘beach federation’, a reflection the Australian federation style with a lighter more casual beaches feel, with verandahs around, not unlike the Queenslander style, but not as high off the ground.
When Lester said that Anchor Homes could do this for us, I must admit we were a little skeptical. But yes, they met every one of our expectations and more.
They allowed us to put our own personality into the design and finishes. As long as we stayed within transportable limits, we could have whatever we wanted. We added ensuites, restyled bathrooms, louvre windows, made a huge open plan kitchen/living area and a large entertaining deck area. We were able to select non-standard fittings to match the federation style throughout. Bathroom fittings and door furniture from Early Settlers, lights and heritage ceiling fans from Beacon Lighting, heritage style skirting boards, architraves, internal panelling, weatherboards, heritage floor tiles, baths, toilets, showers and a stained-glass front door. One thing that I have to say is the more time you spend in the design stage planning finishes, selecting fittings, tiles, appliances, lighting, etc., the happier you will be with the finished product.
I would recommend to anyone thinking of building a new home or holiday house to seriously consider Anchor Homes as a really viable option. If anyone wants to ask anything about Sunny Corner or even have a wander through, we would be only too happy to assist!’John and Jill,
