The appeal of living on the Sunshine Coast of Australia, right on the beach, is vast. Some people simply appreciate the ability to escape to their coastal retreat for the weekend or extended holiday. While others have the luxury of spending day after day enjoying the sweeping views of the ocean and the beautiful scenery that accompanies it. Regardless of your intent, a few elements remain consistent.
First, you’ll, of course, want a coastal home to be relaxing and to reflect your personal tastes and lifestyle. You’ll also want your coastal beach home to take advantage of the beautiful surroundings that living on the coast has to offer. This includes things like sweeping views of the ocean from indoor common areas, as well as easy access to the outdoors by the way of patios, alfresco, and screened in sitting areas. Lastly, it’s absolutely essential that your home be built to withstand the sometimes volatile coastal climate.
You may be able to compromise on the style and panoramic views, but building your coastal home with durability at the forefront of your mind is essential to protecting your investment. And make no mistake about it, your home is first and foremost an investment, which is why it’s so important you take your time when choosing a house plan draftsman.
Throughout the rest of this article we will be discussing some conventional coastal living house plans, as well as some slightly less common, yet more extravagant, coastal house plans that can be found scattered across the Sunshine Coast and other coastal regions around the world.
Starting things off with a bang is the Mali Mali house located in Port Douglas, Queensland. Positioned in the center of this 40 acre hilltop property is the Australian House of the Year award-winning beach house designed by Chris Van Dyke.
This house has it all, including unbeatable 360 degree views of the ocean, mountains, and surrounding forests, as well as a vast selection of amenities such as its infinity pool, tennis courts, and even a helipad. Under its roof, you’ll find 3 exceptionally large bedrooms, outdoor lounging areas, and big open spaces.
The Miami Mansion has yet to be built, so it is still just a concept, but that doesn’t take anything away from its luxurious design. The Miami Mansion, designed by Drafting Concepts in Queensland, features many bedrooms with attached outdoor viewing areas, a pool, and will one day be a fantastic place to go with your friends and/or family for holiday.
The Island Beach Lodge, located on Kangaroo Island, is far more conservative in size when compared to the Mali Mali House Miami Mansion, but is equally as stunning. Kangaroo Island, as the third largest island in Australia, is home to a large number of beach homes, but none can quite compare to this contemporary beauty.
This home’s minimalist, modern style can sleep up to 14 people, making it perfect for family holidays. Alternatively, you can take advantage of this home for a romantic weekend overlooking the beach and enjoying the stunning sunset views.
