The home at Helsal Point sits at the end of one of the “fingers” at Martha Cove with water frontage to the south and west. Given that this lot sits in exclusive Helsal Point, the frontage is less than five metres. The site is benched two and a half metres down to the water’s edge.
The design outcome is quite unique in that you enter this home on the upper level (street level), then step down to the open plan living space on the lower level.
The clients were building for the first time and wanted a design that capitalised on the water frontage, captured views to Mt Martha to the north and had street presence despite the reduced frontage. The upper level bedrooms & lounge maximise waterfrontage views with large balcony wrapping around the south-west and north-west corners of this home
