Bronte House

Bidjigal Country / Gadigal Country / Bronte

The design of the house features expansive views over the ocean from a terraced hillside above Bronte Beach. A room-scale hallway leads to a tranquil courtyard adjoining the family living level while providing links with other rooms and levels. The materials and finishes of the exterior and interiors are carefully chosen as complements of the exterior grey and walnut-stained weatherboard. This includes the interior use of unique pietra di bedonia stone and dark timber flooring. A large sandstone boulder uncovered during the lower ground level construction is incorporated into the design of the timber-clad change room.
