When our clients first saw the house for sale in Torquay they liked the fact that it was in a quiet street away from the hustle and bustle of main Torquay but that it was still only 15 mins walk to the beach and the main shopping centre. They bought the property with the intension of pulling the existing residence down to make way for two townhouses. One was to be slightly larger that they would use as their own residence and the other one was to be sold for profit.
After consultation with our clients we designed two side by side townhouses so that both could take advantage of the sea breezes and the view. The main living areas and parents retreat are upstairs while downstairs caters to children and/or guests. The raised roofline with clerestory windows over the living areas and the internal courtyards resulted in a design that is light and airy.
We were able to meet the clients brief and the quick sale of the second townhouse exceeded all expectations.
