The Ultimate Jan Juc Beach House
With Bells at your doorstep, Hayden Real Estate’s most recent listing at 42 Bells Boulevarde, Jan Juc, is a true hidden gem that must be seen to be believed.
The impressive home is cleverly concealed from the road that leads to the world-famous Bells Beach, and once you enter the property through the native hinterland vegetation, Jan Juc’s most distinctive architectural masterpiece emerges.
Hayden’s Brent Hartigan says this stunning home nestled in an inspiring five-acre landscape is a masterpiece in design and construction.
“Set back from the road, the house is designed to have a minimal presence, to be hidden from view with a low profile,” Mr Hartigan said.
“As an “architects-own” home, buyers are gaining the benefit of thousands of hours of considered design thinking.
“The property is suited to a buyer who is looking for a unique home that is adventurous and expressive – the house has a distinct personality and so will the buyer.”
Upon arriving from a curved blackbutt deck that sweeps around a stand of tangled messmates, one enters into a glazed 2.5 storey atrium and into the open plan living, dining and kitchen area.
This unique and distinctive space form the ‘heart of the house’, with soaring 4.2m high ceilings, curved walls and large picture windows that outlook to a distant view over the forest.
The design manages to provide complete privacy, yet the roof soars above the contours of the land to over 9m high.
This bespoke dwelling has been designed for modern ecologically-sustainable living that reflects the adventurous lifestyle of the Surf Coast.
No expense or effort was spared, with the house exquisitely designed and detailed for low-maintenance, sustainable living.
Master built using bagged brickwork, Colorbond walls, galvanised steel expressed beams and columns, double-glazed anodised aluminium windows and lined with fire-rated plasterboard, this home is built to last 100 years.
The large open kitchen, dining and living room are anchored by jarrah hardwood floors, a perfect reflection of the vibrant hues of the Australian landscape.
The kitchen has stainless-steel benches and Tasmanian myrtle burl touches, black 2-pack cupboards and cypress pine beams lining the ceiling.
Striking interiors and timber finishes abound, complementing the northern treetop outlook from the open plan living space.
Naturally-warmed by the sun, the whole house is heated by a wood-fired hydronic system.
A north-facing deck from this living space provides sunset views over the forest to the distant horizon, while multiple sheltered decks, terraces and bush tracks allow you to spend time outdoors and enjoy the untouched ecosystem of indigenous flora and fauna.
The main residence is complemented by a separate 60 sqm. studio, complete with kitchenette, bar and bathroom.
This multi-purpose space features hoop pine plywood lining, exposed cypress pine beams and custom-designed joinery, with windows offering a slice of view to the forest and a private terrace.
This adaptable space provides the perfect designer space for work-from-home office, a yoga, artist or music studio, and guest accommodation.
Living within minutes of Torquay for shopping, and even closer to Jan Juc and Bells Beach, 42 Bells Boulevard achieves the perfect balance between accessibility and privacy.
