Situated in Cable Beach, Broome, this home was designed and built by the CWD team, and won MBA Country Home Of The Year for the Kimberley/Pilbara region.
The clients’ key requirement was to be able to enjoy Broome’s tropical climate by taking advantage of cross ventilation and open-plan living, in a house designed around a luxurious resort-type atmosphere. The home is located in the popular Sunset Rise estate, and is situated on a 730sqm block.
Entry to the home is through solid, carved-timber gates set in a thatched roof gatehouse, leading to a feature Balinese-inspired granite paved courtyard.
Bi-fold doors occupy both walls of the large open-plan living and dining areas, promoting the required cross ventilation.
The doors lead directly out to the huge undercover outdoor living area, which features timber decking and a timber-lined ceiling. Glass balustrading has been used to provide uninterrupted views of the pool. Flanking the pool are a separate guest bedroom pavilion and an outdoor kitchen area, which continues the Balinese theme with its exposed timbers and thatched roof.
The home also includes a double lock-up garage, study, and three further bedrooms in the main part of the house. Rendered walls feature throughout the home, providing a sleek, seamless finish to the residence, and a low-maintenance solution to the external walls, resulting in a change from the standard Broome vernacular.
