Located in the seaside town of Portsea, the Portsea House is a modern luxury beach house.  Designed to optimise the panoramic views of Port Phillip Bay, the 4 bedroom home provides all the facilities of contemporary living while incorporating sustainable features, including solar power and solar hot water.

Finishes and materials throughout were selected for their natural and textured characteristics to reflect the natural landscape, including recycled hardwood timbers, sandstone cladding to walls internally and externally, textured woollen carpet and copper clad external walls.  Custom designed features including the artisan sliding door and the light fixtures in the entry vestibule and lounge add to the character of the home.

Connection between internal and external space is maximised through large glass panels throughout the house and the operable louvres in the entry vestibule blurring the sense of enclosure.
