Showing respect and sensitivity to its coastal environment, this
home’s perceptive design and natural finishes prove to be a winner.
This award-winning home is the result of endless
hours spent by the owners and building designer,
Robert Forgione, perfecting the design to ensure all
the clients’ lifestyle requirements were satisfied.
With the home situated on the Esperance
coast, the design needed to give strong
consideration to the harsh climate conditions,
in particular the region’s strong winds.
Built of brick and stainless steel, the four-
bedroom, two-bathroom home has two alfresco
areas, one overlooking the pool and the other
located at the rear of the home.
Other rooms worked into this design include an
office, activity room and cellar, all of which exploit
natural materials such as timber flooring and an
extensive use of stonework – the majority of the
latter being sourced from the owner’s farm.
The beautiful, natural environment was to be
capitalised by the design of this home, taking full
advantage of the island and beach views from
most windows of the south-facing property. The
inclusion of double glazing allows an uninterrupted
outlook, and also maximises natural light.
Fixtures and fittings are of the best quality,
further enhanced with a C-Bus automation
system, intercom and sound system.
This property won Great Southern Home of the
Year: Custom Built Home of the Year $450,001
and over at the HIA Great Southern Housing
Awards 2014, the judges citing it as “extremely
well designed and beautifully built, with all the
comforts you could ever need”.
