For Sale : Rosedale's stunning property: The Camp

You might never have been aware that it was there as you drove along the coast road via Rosedale and Guerilla Bay but tucked away and out of site is a stunning property fondly called The Camp.

The Camp is an architecturally dramatic hideaway amid coastal bushland nestled in approx. 20ha of spotted gum tree forest with burrawangs which cascades down to, and surrounds, the virtually private Tranquil Beach.

Prior to engaging Julius Bokor Architect to build a residence on the highest point of the land, the owners had established a compound of temporary huts on the site. They had camped here every holiday for 12 years. Enjoying this arrangement, they wanted the same feeling carried over into the new house, with a real focus on outdoor living and a strong connection to the natural environment.

They wanted the accommodation to be low-maintenance, intimate and comfortable no matter how many people were staying – sometimes it was just a couple and other times up to 12. They also desired the design to feel timeless, choosing to build with a small palette of building material-- steel zinc glass cement, and rammed earth excavated on site.

Featured in several architectural magazines, such as the Australian Architectural Review and Habitus, the property comprises a collection of six versatile pavilions plus three bathroom pavilions, each designed to serve different functions.

The pavilions are arranged around open courtyards which form a relaxed alfresco living environment beneath a canopy of trees retaining a strong connection to nature and focus on indoor/outdoor living.

The property is now for sale with Expressions of Interest sought. You can find out more about the property here: Photo and text courtesy of Ken Jacobs, of Christie’s International, and David Matthew, of Nirvana Property Specialists.
