THE HOUSE RESONATES WITH THE IDEA OF A SIMPLE BUT ELEGANT COASTAL WEEKENDER

Palm Beach House Rental Photos and Description

One Of Australia's Quintessential Beachfront Homes - A Modernist Tour De Force

The Whale Beach House is a contemporary home that brings together bold raw materials in a refined and tranquil, open-plan design. It is located at the northern end of Sydney’s Whale Beach, a 50 minute drive north of Sydney on the Palm Beach Peninsula, in New South Wales, Australia.

Designed by the noted Tasmanian architect, Craig Rosevear, the house is acknowledged as an outstanding piece of contemporary architecture and was awarded the Royal Australian Institute of Architect’s Wilkinson Award in 2001: ‘’Using a modernist’s palette of concrete, glass, aluminium and steel, Craig Rosevear has created a house that is streamlined and exquisite’.

The House enjoys panoramic views of the South Pacific Ocean and is a rare example of true beachfront on the northern most beaches of the Peninsular. The beach is a short walk through the garden direct to the sand.

The house has been specifically created to be comfortable in every season. In summer, triple panels of aluminium louvres allow sea breezes through the house and the concrete floor provides a cool surface in warmer weather. Under-floor heating warms the house in winter.

Much of the furniture and fittings are designed by Craig Rosevear in collaboration with Stuart Houghton using Tasmanian soft and hardwoods. This is complemented with outstanding items of contemporary furniture design including Barcelona, PK25 and MR chairs, a Charles divan and Tolomeo lamps.

The Whale Beach House is available for rent, both short and long stay with its own concierge service to assist guests.

The house was the featured home on the front cover of the Sydney Morning Herald’s “100 Amazing Sydney Houses” in November 2003. It has been featured in a number of Australian and international books and magazines including “Living in Sydney” where it is featured on the cover by Antonella Boisi and Giorgio Possenti published by Taschen; Architectural Digest: Les Plus Belles Maisons du Monde, Nº 24, July-August 2002; Republica delle Donne, 23 August 2003 Nº 364 and the Phaidon Atlas of Contemporary World Architecture: Comprehensive Edition.

It is a true beachfront with private pathway through native bushland leading to the sand and enjoys panoramic views over the South Pacific Ocean.

Suitable for families and friends, The Whale Beach House comprises three bedrooms, two with en-suites and one family/bunk room accommodating six. The open-plan master bedroom with en-suite is a luxurious retreat with glass doors opening to a private veranda. A shower is concealed behind glass doors and the bath sits like a sculpture in a room bathed in sunshine overlooking the full sweep of the South Pacific Ocean. The middle room is designed specifically for children with six built-in bunks incorporated in wood cabinetry. A downstairs surf board room accommodates three for total accommodation of thirteen. Day guests are also catered for with their own change room and shower.

Whale Beach is located on the spectacular Barrenjoey Peninsula 50 minutes drive north of Sydney. The Whale Beach House is on the quiet, northern end of the beach with direct beach access through the native garden. 'The Wedge' is at this end of the beach and offers some of the best surf in the Sydney area in a north-east swell. The house has wonderful views over the beach, 'The Wedge' and out over the Pacific Ocean.
