The one-of-a-kind home blends beautiful beach style with the form of a classic cottage and does it all without ever forgoing modern functionality and an air of luxury! Even its exterior presents a unique picture with three different structures clad in natural-edge weatherboards batten timber cladding and cool mud brick.
The exterior of this cool cottage also paints a picture of textural beauty as white cedar is combined with a dash of raw exposed steel to shape a façade that would age beautifully as it wears on.
The lowest level contains a guest room along with a laundry room and a smart hall while the first floor holds the living room kitchen and dining space. The top two levels contain the master bedroom bathrooms and additional bedrooms and offer a great view of the city landscape and beyond.
Nestled on a quiet little plot in the beautiful Argentine Patagonia brings together unabated views of the forest landscape that surrounds it and the Limay River that becomes a part of its lovely backyard!
Space is often the biggest issue in most modern homes with many of us looking to find that extra square footage that we feel would make all the difference. But when it comes to a lovely vacation home on the beach one does not really need a whole lot of room and even the smallest can fill your idyllic summer afternoons with unabated joy.

Essentially the delightful residence brings together a series of courtyards and open spaces bound by glass and stone walls to create a relaxing imaginative and exclusive interior. Apart from the obvious stone and glass presence it is the sturdy steel beams that bring another interesting dimension to this Aussie home even as the two butterfly roofs open up to bring in as much sunlight as possible.
