Beach House Design and Style

There's alot of beach house style on Sydney's Northern Beaches and I went walking the other day to see what is out there in my area.  To say it lifted my spirits would be an understatement.  Come on in and see what I found.  There is so much inspiration in these lovely homes, I think I will be referring back here many times, if I am ever lucky enough to build a beach house from scratch.  Oh the possibilities.

Love these garage doors (left) and the symmetry (right)

New made to look established and old made to look cute

A sweet beach cottage

My absolute favourite style of beach house.  Loads of sandstone and my favourite colour scheme

This house over looks this park and Pittwater

Two different styles of front verandah, a must in an Australian Beach House

I love the half weatherboard half cement board look in a beach house top left

Lots of decking and balustrades

I love this colour scheme in a beach house

Some interesting fence styles for a beach house
I hope your eyes aren't hurting.
