There are many benefits of living by the coast – studies suggest that it can lead to increased activity, better sleep, less stress and a greater sense of community. So, if this ticks your boxes the team at Cavalier Homes have a design that can suit any shape, size and budget. But what home suits you? Well, we asked the team who actually live on the coast what home they would suggest.
Cavalier Homes Greater Tweed
“The open layout and distinct living zones make this a great house for relaxing and entertaining, which is what a coastal lifestyle is all about,” says Paul.
Coastal inspired interior design takes its cues from the surrounding landscape. Blues, greens, taupes and sandy tones. Open, airy interior spaces are also a must, which is where the Eclipse shines, with flowing indoor-outdoor living the core of all three floorplans. The Eclipse 28 is a five-bedroom design, perfect for guests to come and stay for the weekend.
Cavalier Homes Illawarra
Taking cues from the surroundings isn’t only important for your interior design, it should also inform the layout and structure of your home. Cavalier Homes Illawarra franchisee, Marcus, believes so strongly in this idea, that he designed the Illawarra with the coastal landscape in mind.
“Over the years, we’ve found our local clients want a floorplan that works with the landscape and allows them to take in the amazing views. The Illawarra is a split-level home, with just enough height for water views and functional flow for family living,” says Marcus.
With accommodation across two levels, there is room for everyone.
Cavalier Homes Gold Coast
Coastal living isn’t just for regional areas. When you’re looking for a smart home design that works well within the hustle and bustle of the city, you can’t look past the Melrose. Small, but mighty the Melrose is a favourite of Todd and his team from Cavalier Homes Gold Coast.
“The Melrose is great for small, urban and metropolitan blocks thanks to its narrow footprint. With four bedrooms and an open-plan kitchen, meals, and family area plus double car garage, there are no compromises with the Melrose,” says Todd.
Cavalier Homes Sunshine Coast
Trent and Candice from Cavalier Homes Sunshine Coast say if you are looking for that narrow yet stylish home to fit a small frontage block the Coolum is for you. The Coolum embodies everything you’d expect from resort-style living on the Sunny Coast and is the preferred floorplan of the Sunshine Coast team.
“We love the Coolum for its versatility and upstairs balcony and accommodation to make the most of the surrounding views. It may look small from the outside, but there is nothing compact about what this house has to offer,” says Trent.
Cavalier Homes Geelong
Nathan from Cavalier Homes Geelong says if space is small, but the view is important the Southport provides the perfect mix of a compact family home with an abundance of space that will suit blocks as narrow as just 10.5m.
When you’re thinking about the layout of your coastal home, you want to consider the surrounding countryside and any views you want to take advantage of.
“The Southport is a bit different to a traditional two-storey home, with the main living areas upstairs to maximise the time spent being able to enjoy your surroundings,” says Nathan.
Cavalier Homes Greater Newcastle
One of the main benefits of living by the coast is the abundance of natural light and sea breezes. To make the most of this, Ben from Greater Newcastle recommends the Parkview. The Parkview comes in three- and four-bedroom configurations, offering plenty of options to suit the family budget.
“The Parkview’s design is architecturally driven to optimise the living space and create the airy, openness that you expect from coastal living,” says Ben.
Cavalier Homes Hobart
If you’re looking for a touch of sophistication on your coastal block, the Eltham delivers in spades. There are no compromises with this design and it’s one of the go-to’s for Arran from Cavalier Homes Hobart.
“What our customers love about the Eltham is its simple sophistication that isn’t overbearing. It’s great for a narrow block with four- and five-bedroom options,” says Arran.
While coastal living offers many of life’s little luxuries, it can also be a harsh climate with strong winds, rain and salty air. It takes an experienced builder and high-quality materials to withstand the rugged challenges coastal environments present. Our builders have the experience, qualifications and access to materials needed through our suppliers to meet the needs of buyers in these areas.
