This Architecturally Designed Dream Home + Lush Garden In Blairgowrie Is On The Market!

On The Market

More than ever we’re all dreaming of a coastal escape – and it doesn’t get more dreamy than this Blairgowrie house!

Award-winning landscape architect Nathan Burkett purchased this property two and a half years ago, and with the help of architect Dan Webster of Webster Architecture and interior designer Simone Haag, this brand new build (no one has ever lived here!) is a perfect example of integrated indoor-outdoor living in a contemporary Australian setting. A beachside haven – that you’d never want to leave!

This spectacular four-bedroom, single-level home is the ultimate beachside retreat in Blairgowrie. Its current owner, landscape architect Nathan Burkett, was first attracted to the property thanks to its unbeatable location on a quiet street, walkable to both the front and back beach, as well as the local shopping strip.

Nathan worked with Dan Webster of Webster Architecture to envision a new home and garden where ‘neither took greater priority, but work in perfect harmony together’, he explains. The exterior of the home is clad in charred eco timber, an understated material that creates a striking design feature and also allows the home to sit comfortably within its natural surroundings, emerging peacefully from the coastal landscape.

Inside, pitched ceilings soar over the main living area and create an expansive sense of volume. Interior design darling Simone Haag was brought on board to add her signature layered, textural style to the interiors, furniture and styling – all of which is available to be purchased with the house, if desired!

The home itself wraps around a dazzling swimming pool, offering views from all the living areas which opens up completely to the outside. ‘When the sun hits the water you get beautiful reflections on the ceiling within the home’, Nathan says. Outdoor areas are fully equipped for entertaining, featuring an in-ground trampoline, large lawn area, modern outdoor fireplace and expansive deck area.

As you might expect from the home of an award-winning landscape architect, the sublime garden is well established, and is a magnificent extension of the surrounding coastal landscape.

This is contemporary Australian beach house living, at its ABSOLUTE finest!

20 Allan Street Blairgowrie is currently on the market via private sale through Peninsula Sotheby’s International. Click here to find out more!
