Solar Beach House

I really do love Real Estate, but moving to a tropical Island and living beach side in a cozy beach hut, just may have crossed my mind once or twice! I bet this same fantasy, or very similar, has crossed many other minds as well! Who wouldn’t want to live beach side with the ocean as their view every morning and night and the ability to swim and watch the sunset at your own free will!

This magnificent home reinterprets traditional building materials and uses unique materials including corrugated metal, fiber-cement sheeting, and timber. Large windows and sliding floor-to-ceiling glass doors frame views and carefully oriented to bring in natural light and cooling sea breezes for natural cross ventilation. This home even has natural ventilation, a large north facing deck that is partly shaded by the roof overhang, and a solar design with sustainable materials!

What a perfect little beach hut inspired home in Australia! Take a look at this fantastic beach home design below:

Spectacular Church conversion!

This is a very different home and completely unique! There are most definitely very few other homes in the world like it. There have not been very many church conversions as most churches tend to stay as churches. This family is certainly lucky to have this magnificent building as their home. A spectacular 135 year old church near Adelaide, Australia, that has been converted into a gorgeous and very modern family residence! The outside of the home looks very much like a church, a place of worship. Step inside the front doors and you are met with super high ceilings and arched windows which give the home a very calming feel. The original bell that sat inside the original chapel is still located inside this fantastic home. Although there have been some renovations on the original chapel section of the church/home (necessary as the building is almost 150 years old), most of the original chapel still stands and is part of the home today. All of the religious artifacts have long been removed. Can you believe this home was only on the market for a few days before it sold! Not surprising if you ask me! Living in a home that is over a hundred years old is definitely some home buyers dream!!
