Waterfront House at Avalon
At the recent Building Designers Australia award night the waterfront house in Avalon received a commendation in the category of Alterations and Additions for over $500,000. This was an interesting project as it involved the addition of more bedrooms and bathrooms, a large games room, a swimming pool and a secondary dwelling - all downhill of the existing house. Because of the steep nature of the site, the secondary dwelling was located partially underneath the pool, and the games room was located behind the pool with windows into the pool. Several new decks were added and the main living area was substantially enlarged. The house now provides the resort lifestyle that the owners wanted.
