Whale Beach House
50 Morella Rd., Whale Beach NSW , 2004
A house near one of Sydneys’ great beaches on a very steep site. Views over the beach, to the east. Each room has access to the views and the cooling breezes, during summer. High quality finishes and fittings were incorporated into this large house to ensure durability in this sea side environment. The original plan was developed to enable further enlargement and enhancement of the house. The house has been extensively enlarged in two stages with an additional Living and Bed Room area created on a rear platform looking over the original house, at the rear. The original owners continue to enjoy this wonderful house.
