Thinking of living by the beach?
Coastal Homes in Melbourne are a little rarer than in Sydney or Perth, but if you’ve got your heart set on coastal living in Bayside Melbourne, the Bellarine or Mornington Peninsula, talk to Destination Living today.
The above home is one of our projects based in Sandringham, set a couple of blocks back from the beach our architect designed this home to maximize the surrounding beach, bay and city views whilst maintaining Bayside council’s given height restrictions.
Designing an architectural home is one thing, but designing a home to accommodate for the rapid weather and seawater is another. There are a long list of items that need to be taken into account when designing and building a close to seawater to prevent what is known as “Salt Deterioration”, for example almost all of the steel items need to be high quality galvanised, stainless steel or powder coated to prevent rust and corrosion, especially structural steel.
Other items that can impact a build near the beach is footings, mortar, roof tiles and awnings to name a few, so even if you are planning to build 2-3 kilometres away from the beach then the chances are you will still be impacted by the seawater.
