This house had a great location on the high side of the street facing north with a view of the escarpment and a few metres from the beach!
However the house was for a young family and there wasn't enough space. The house was exposed and was cramped on the block after being subdivided.
The solution was to build onto the front and side of the existing house adding a big covered deck to the front for entertaining and sheltered play. The existing driveway was landscaped (cars could share the driveway to the rear). There was a new garage with a living room on top to take advantage of the views and the north aspect, new bedroom, study and bathroom.
I still get to visit this house and enjoy the relaxed nature of a home by the beach.
