RUNAWAY BAY RESIDENCE
Located on Anglers Esplanade in Runaway Bay, this two-storey waterfront home overlooks the Broadwater, South Stradbroke Island, and the canal entrance. The spacious lounge, dining and combined winter room open on to a verandah and patio to capture views of the surrounding landscape and expansive water views.
Open timber stairs and bridges designed with nautical detailing, allow access to the bedrooms and bathrooms, and the study overlooks the double garage with views of its beautifully planted roof. A water feature in the main entrance draws natural sunlight to the entryway, and a reflective pond in the back garden laps against the boat ramp that links the home to the canal.
With a focus on sustainable design, an angled band of transparent glazing that separates the roof from the house to allow natural sunlight into living spaces, while heat is controlled through the thick limestone brickwork, deeply recessed glass and inverted parasol roof. The home also utilises solar panels and underground concrete water tanks for irrigation and grey water use.
