Romancing The Stone, Historic Sandstone Cottage Recreated By Andrew Burges Architects

Built from Bondi sandstone in the early 1900s, this sandstone beach cottage has been transformed by celebrated architect Andrew Burges to create a relaxed, calm and reflective contemporary home that pays tribute to the past and engages with the outdoors. A harmonious composition of cutting-edge design and heritage architecture features a sunlit pavilion-like extension that provides a striking counterpoint to the original cottage and serves as the social heart of the home anchored by a new state-of-the-art kitchen. Walls of glass dissolve the boundary between indoors and out with a lush landscaped garden bathed in northerly sunshine and featuring an entertainer's deck and heated pool as centrepiece to family life. Spread over two levels, the five-bedroom home features a luxurious master retreat that overlooks the flourishing garden giving the ambiance of a luxurious sanctuary in the treetops. Key to the success of the design is the interplay between old and new with restored sandstone walls and timber beams speaking to the past while a new custom-fitted study and cocktail bar bring a thoroughly contemporary feel. With a sense of light and privacy that's rare to find in the heart of Bondi, this historic treasure is just 500m to Hall Street village and an 800m walk to the sand and surf.
